parents visa

ok I arrived in australia in 2007 with my son and my husband, in between we divorced and my exhusband is now in defacto with the australian girl friend and had a baby as well. He put my son under his visa to allow my son to get permanent residency but it is not going to happen before may 2015. Me when we divorced I had to find my own visa and because I had no choice I did a student visa and study for a year, but my visa is finishing the 15 of march 2014. Because iam not eligible to apply for any visa skills or sponsorship or state territory ect... and parents visa 103 not possible offshor with 13 year waiting process 143/173 to expensive, I have been told to apply for a visa 804 aged parent who will allow me to have a bridging visa but will be refused as iam not in the age requesting but then I have to apply for a review who is going to be refused again and from there make a request to the minister. At the minister I have good case as my son is 8 years old we are sharing the custody we my exhusband we should meet the family balance, Iam also working in aged care which is needed in australia and I am living in australia since 2007 without medicare or centrelink and iam paying my tax. Is anyone knows anything about that kind of process and it is going to be ok for me, iam desesperate I can't go back to France without my son and my ex will never let me go with my son, anyone can help ??
Thank you very much

Rather than jump through all sorts of complicated hurdles to apply for and get rejected for parent visas, I'd look into whether you can remain in Australia on compassionate grounds since you share custody with a minor child who will be remaining in Australia.

I'd suggest you speak with a migration agent as you may have options, but it sounds like it would be helpful to have guidance through a professional to give you the best chance of success.

Thanks Maggy but I did saw a lot of agent and lawyer who are telling that there is nothing i can do they are all about money and they are telling me to apply for 143/173 but I can't because the cost is 43000 or something like that, I am sick of wetsing my money and my time, and by doing this process iam going to do compassionate but it is apparently the only way to go through the minesterial, you can't directly to the minister, and I also need time as my son is not PR even the minister could refused. Iam in a really complicated situation and when I asked to agent or to the immigration I don't get any clear answer. But the person who gave me that advice is a migration who volonteer in an organisation.

Sorry to hear. Your best bet would be a Contributory Parent Visa, subclass 143. Check it out on DIBP website, and good luck.

I can't afford the price of the 143 visa, and it is a shame that has the mother of my child iam not able to get a visa to stay here with him, I am wondering if anyone else had that situation iam sure someone else must have being through the same.

Unfortunately there is nothing you can do. The rules are specifically to prohibit the situation you find yourself in....someone having a child here with an Australian...not staying together for a significant amount of time...and then trying to remain here "for the sake of the child". International custody is very common. The courts deal with them as often as interstate custody. Your child is at the age that he can almost be able to fly to you straight away...most applicants don't have that as the child is under 5. The sponsorship your child will have to do to support your application will mean they will need to convince the government he can support you..that won't happen at 18 - more likely the clock will start then not now. Start working out the custody arrangements now..it will be easier and fairer for you if you ar in the same country with your ex.

The other issue is that you can apply for full custody...it's risky as you are only a student and if your ex is working chances are you will not get it..but it's an option

If you meet the requirements for a Ministerial Intervention Request (compassionate and compelling circumstances), then the scenario outlined by your agent is correct.

Apply for another visa onshore, after refusal seek review by MRT and when the MRT upholds the refusal , go to the Minister. The MRT is processing these sort of cases very quickly at the moment. The Ministerial Intervention process can take up to a year though and there is no guarantee that your request will be granted.

Your case would probably be stronger if you son had PR or was an Australian citizen. As it is now, there is no certainty that your husband will even be granted PR, since his application is still being processed or so I presume ?
