Non-migrating children and Form 80

I've been reviewing the information required for Form 80 and, unless I've missed something, I don't see anywhere asking for information about non-migrating children. My son is 20 and not moving, but since I'm asked about my parents and siblings, I'm surprised I'm not asked about my son.

I've looked at Booklet 5 and the document checklist for the 186 visa, but don't see any requirements for non-migrating children other than reference to them needing a police clearance. Isn't it going to be odd to send a police clearance for someone not mentioned anywhere else in my documents?

Any clarification or help is appreciated, thanks!

I have a 23 year old daughter who is not migrating as yet with us, and I haven't seen anywhere we have to highlight this, I'd like clarification too, as she intends to join us in a couple of years. I thought it strange that no information is required on them.
Lets see if anyone can enlighten us!

Geordie - is she dependent on you still (full-time in college?) If she is you may want to reconsider adding her as a migrating dependent. It can be really, really difficult to get over to Oz on your own accord as a skilled worker at 25, and if you're counting on the "last remaining relative" visa to bring her over the wait time on that is currently 16 *years.* Just thought I'd mention that.

Maggie - if your son is not considered a dependent (i.e., he's not still full-time in school and/or completely financially reliant on you), the reason they don't ask is that you won't be able to bring them over under your visa. They'd have to get one on their own. You also will not need a police clearance for him if he is not a dependent.

However, if your son still IS a dependent, then you'll need both medicals and police check for him.

Hi CollegeGirl, my daughter is totally independent and following her own career in retail. She has not yet decided to make the move. Is there anything you can suggest we do? Or should we leave as is, until she decides what she wants to do?

Okay, if she's over 18 and completely independent you can't add her to your application at all anyway. So you definitely are not going to need police checks or anything of that nature for her as those are only needed for non-migrating dependents, which she is not. Unfortunately there's nothing I know of that you can do at this point to better her chances of coming over later... she's going to have to come over of her own accord after she has an in-demand skill and enough experience to qualify to migrate herself... and unfortunately they change the goalposts on which skills are "in demand" at any given moment, which makes it that much harder. I think most people don't realize exactly how hard it can be to qualify to move to Australia.

He's not dependent and (at this time) has no intention of migrating, so I wasn't going to add him to my application. Unfortunately I didn't figure out the part about him not needing a police check before spending the money to have that done (on the positive side, he passed which is always reassuring to a mother, lol). But I find it odd that I have to provide information about my parents and siblings but none about my child. Just seems like an oversight on the part of immigration and I wanted to make sure I hadn't missed a form or something. Thanks for the clarification!

Hi... I have a son who is 15 years old and I have decided that he will NOT migrate with me when I apply for my PMV (subclass 300). I want him to finish his studies first. Is there a need for me to make a Stat Dec or maybe Statement on why I should not include my son to migrate?

Hi Miss Philippines,
It may be worth reconsidering your idea of not having your son migrate with you.
1. At his age he will find it easy to assimilate into the Australian education system, a Filipina friend of my wife's brought her 14 year old daughter with her and she has had no problems at all fitting in.
2. Due to the general non recognition of Philippine educational qualifications, he would have to do further studies before he could do much in Australia.
3.After he turns 18 you would find it generally harder for you to prove he is your dependent for migration purposes.

The choice is entirely yours but I thought I might give you some alternative thoughts.
Good luck in whatever decision you make.
