PMV Visa - adding birth parents to application

Hi,

Myself and partner are looking to apply for a PMV soon and I have a question about where you add your birth parents, siblings etc.
My partner and their father haven't spoken for years.
He basically forever burnt his bridges with them so we would like to know what happens when you add your family members? Are they contacted in anyway?
I know we can't avoid adding such an important detail such as a birth parent but we also do not want any contact with him nor want him to know that we are applying for this visa.

I also wanted to ask, we have been looking all around the internet, seeing what we need to get together to apply.
Is there a up to date forum post or website that details what is the process and what we need to get together? The Aus gov site is a bit light on details.
Also how delayed are these visas at the moment? Is it still 1-2 years or will it increase to 2 years plus?

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,

The immi website is not designed to give migration advice.
Many of your questions will be addressed once you start to lodge.

Yes I understand so I hoped someone had a link to up to date advice/guide to it.

I can't be 100% sure, but I don't think they contact those people. That is just to check your family background and give further proof you are not lying about who you are.

I wouldn't worry about it. I guess your father in-law (?) will find out one day, so you can't worry about him.

The processing time has dropped in the last few months, but you need to plan that it'll take up to 2 years. I think the longer you can prove you've been together, and the more developed the country you are applying from, the shorter the wait.

If you find out what visa you want, and then search online for the PDF version, you'll get a good idea of what information you'll need to provide.

Well we have zero contact with him and nor ever will so he probably wouldn't find out through I thought I'd ask as we rather not have to tell.

Where can we find out which countries are considered developed? We are applying from Russia and I believe Serbia is the embassy that processes the visa(if that matters).

We will apply for a prospective marriage visa as that seems like the best route for us. I did find a PDF of a massive guide but it was pretty old.
I can't link it but it is called DIBP_Visa_Partner%20Booklet.pdf. I found it from the Burma embassy site.
Is this the correct PDF? I can't find any others but maybe I have searched the wrong terms to find it.

Thank you a lot for your help.

It might pay you to consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for advice about strategy.

We intend to do that for further advice so we apply as best we can.

Of course to do the rest of it we need a solid guide or booklet as at the moment it seems all we can find is bits and pieces of information on various websites which may or may be wrong or out of date.
Where can I get this PDF document that Meathead speaks of?
Thanks,

That booklet is pretty old, that said it shows a fair bit of evidence in different categories is required.

It is a quite involved process and Russia can be a challenging embassy to deal with, is your partner born in Russia or another country of the former USSR?
