Just things to keep in mind so you can start researching those processes now.
Thanks for your input!

The baby will remain in its birth country, until roughly 3 or so months after it is born to allow mum to resign after maternity leave and i would assume while we probably still wait for a decision on her PMV300 outome, potentially applying for a visitor subclass 600 visa if things really drag on after 3 months post birth
We are yet to submit but we are at the end of the stage 1 application with all questions answered and are just holding off until we've got all the evidence we want to present and until i could find out info about my potential tax issues, id say we have 90% evidence so far so maybe in a few days from now

We'd planned in that 3 months to get the baby a passport in its birth country hong kong, apply for aus visa for him and fly to australia and then when on australian soil i apply to get the child a citizenship by descent and then get its australian passport.

Is that do'able? or am i going to mess this up? Id not considered the fact it will have to be approved for a visa, whats my best option here?

Plus the benefit is, if she can get onshore without a NFS condition, she can apply onshore for a partner visa and remain onshore until a decision is made on the visa. She's also eligible for Medicare once either the 309/100 or 820/801 application has been made. And delivering the baby in Australia, no need to go through the citizenship by descent as it will automatically be a citizen.

Of course, not everyone meets the requirements for de facto. If you don't, then the 300 is the best route for you.

Good question, one i have definitely considered myself

Unfortunately because of my unique work arrangements and the fact that i only 'stay' (really live) with her at 'her' (really our) apartment i am not putting forward any information that we have lived together for the fear of coming undone due to it being a somewhat unlawful or walking a very fine line of legality (continually doing visa runs to leave said country and coming back in)

Although our evidence is really quite strong, our financials are muddled by the fact that i am contracting overseas and not playing by the rules here per se (I am really concerned with the aus consulate sharing information with the country my partner will apply in, which if they did, may stop me from ever being allowed back in, am i crazy to think this would happen?)

I do appear on 2 sets of bills for the apartment, but we usually only pay bills by cash and i am not willing to submit my bank statements as again i feel like it would cause me more problems than good.

As for delivering the baby in Australia, she'd wanted to stay in her country for a few reasons
1. we didnt think she would be applicable for medicare so quickly therefore we wouldnt get it in time for the birth, due in 3 months, if we went down the defacto path
2. She will go on maternity leave at some point and will then have to go back to work to resign otherwise she will have to pay a months salary in backpay.
3. Most importantly i think she'll want support from her mum and family during post birth atleast for the first 3 months, i dont blame her id want my family with me too if i were in her shoes. I'l be busy working so i dont like the idea of leaving her alone during the days etc..

I would get the child a local passport and apply for Citizenship By Descent asap, it is not expensive and can be very fast.

I don't know on payment plans for individuals but I expect it is the same as for companies.

I often used my tax payments to grow my company (it worked out as a tax free loan) we certainly never had a 10% figure to start, They would say ok you owe $100,000 we want $20,000 a month. We would say no can not afford that we will go broke. Then it was always what can you afford and we would reply maybe $10,000 but to be safe $8,000. They would generally agree at this point and ask the date of first payment - we would always make it a date the following month around 6 weeks after the date we are currently on.

They insist you make all tax payments during this time on time and don't default.

We probably did this 7 or 8 times and never once did we get a penalty or interest on the owed amount, we did get a nasty person on a few occasions but simply had an emergency to deal with and needed to call back - you get a new person and start your negotiations again.

If I were you I would get a independent accountant that specializes in offshore employment.

In my opinion what extra they will cost you will make up in what you will save in tax to be paid, they also will deal with your payment plan.

Kong Hong has a good per diems allowance and I guess accommodation allowance, that might save your bacon if that is where your working from.

Supa can be a bit tricky.

If a person is paid an award amount, then generally supa is paid in addition to that amount. Were the payment received is above an award then the supa can be included in that payment amount.

So your employer could have the position that your payment is inclusive of supa and as a contractor you are required & responsible to pay your own supa. (I would not like to be taking this position to the Fair Work Ombudsman as I don't think it holds water).

Generally once the bridge is on fire claims for supa are made.

[QUOTE=Aussiesponsor;1880269]



What else should i expect to be asked or have to prove in the online application regarding my employment, income or finances?
Am i right to believe there are no real financial requisites to be a sponsor for a PMV300?
i just want an idea of what will be asked of me regarding employment or income and how to put my best foot forward on the sponsors section

Hello, the following is from the partner migration booklet page 18:If your partner applies for and is granted a Partner visa, as sponsor you agree to provide adequate accommodation and financial assistance as required to meet your partnerís reasonable living needs. If your partner is applying outside Australia, this assistance would cover their first 2 years in Australia. If your partner is applying in Australia, this assistance would cover the 2 years following the grant of their temporary Partner visa.

Hope that shed some light
