Pr return visa 155

Good morning,
Im slightly confused about the 157 Permanent Residency Renewal visa. I have read different reports its valid for 3 months or 1 year. Is there a choice when you apply for it?
Im living outside of Australia due to my husbands work commitments and the Permanent Residency (309/100) is due to expire November 2020. Is there any time frame after the PR expires that I wont be allowed to apply for the 157?
I have not lived in Australia, but have visited several times during the PR issued dates.
Thank you in advance for any help on this matter

Immigration decide.
These are the relevant rules on the RRV.

The common one is a a 5 year travel validity, but you must have been in Australia for 2 out of the last 5 years.

If you have not lived in Australia for 2 years in the last 5 years as a permanent resident or former citizen or former permanent resident, then you might be given a maximum of 12 months travel validity on your visa if you can demonstrate substantial ties that benefit Australia.

If you meet the requirements only because you are a member of family unit of a person who holds this visa, then you can only be given a maximum of 12 months travel validity on your visa.

If you don't meet the requirement, but have compelling and compassionate reasons for departure, then you might only be given 3 months travel validity on your visa.

The 157 visa is different to the usual subclass 155 RRV. It can only be valid for 3 months and is generally only issued in very specific circumstances, if an applicant fails to meet the grant requirements for the 155 RRV.

My wife was granted PR in 2004 but we were unable to take up residency and have lived abroad since without renewal or getting a RRV even though we've visited most years. I'm an Aus citizen and our 2 young children are as well. It's not clear to us whether her substantial ties to family are sufficient to be granted RRV.

Are you actually wanting to live in Australia now?

Yes, we're all planning on moving back permanently within the next year.

It’s possible, but she may need to be onshore to make the application. I would seek some professional advice tailored to your specific circumstances.
