Inquiring on behalf my friend, she is currently residing in Ireland with her Australian partner with whom she has one child, they have been living together for almost two years. They wish to move to Australia this year together and she is baffled by the process and the cost of the application. Would it be better for her to apply for a 1 year visa and move to Australia and apply for full residency there or is obtaining a full residency before entry financially and practically a better option for her? She has had very differing advice from a few sources and she is hoping to resolve this without a solicitor. Any advice much appreciated, c

If she wants to move on the basis of her relationship with the Aussie guy, she is probably best to apply in Ireland for a partner visa for that will be the most straightforward and cheapest.

The only one year visas are the Working Holiday Visas and taking a child with you is not on and though there is provision for a parent to apply for one on the basis of the child not coming, that would all get a bit messy if that was contemplated with child to come with father.
And then the one year tourist visa is not going to help too much even if she was considered eligible for such a visa will likely have a No Further Stay condition on it which effectively means she cannot then apply in Australia for a partner visa.

So she and the partner need to have a good read of http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/part...rtner/820-801/ particularly the eligibility and applying for this visa sections and also Booklet#1
A lot of people do take the DIY route and if one reads carefully and takes the time to understand via looking at links etc. or asking more questions on a forum, it can be done successfully without too much fuss but just quite a bit of documentation and showing evidence of a relationship etc. is involved so some effort and commitment needed.

Yes, there are costs involved, the largest being the visa fee and then if an agent or solicitor was to be involved, she could add up all the fees and then that would be something like what extra she could have to pay, ie. double the actual ammount of visa, medical and PCC fees.

It could be a little simpler if they get the leprechaun Aussie citizenship - Australian Citizenship – Child born overseas to an Australian citizen
saving need for child medical and dad to get a police clearance from Oz re welfare of a child.
