Visas for non migrating dependents

Dears,
I added my father as a non migrating dependent, and then later i found out that i must take him with me coz my mother passed away and now he cannot be left alone, what should i do?
Note: My application was just lodged and i was not granted a visa yet. I am applying for the GSM visa.
Thanks a lot
Dalia

If you want to attempt to include him in your visa application, you will need to advise Immi of a change and you can probably use Form 1022 to do that.
You ought to take into account several issues in doing so:
. Provision of substantial evidenciary documentation to support your father being totally dependent on you and there is also likely to be taken into account what other family members are in your home country, ie. brothers and sisters etc., there being some information in the visa eligibility sections re dependants.
. By adding your father to your application if he is refused, then the total visa application is refused.
. Immigrating to a foreign country with a family is demanding enough and having a parent as well will make it even more demanding for you to be able to quickly get employment unless you are wealthy enough to support a whole family here, living costs being quite substantial and employment not guaranteed.
. If your father is of an age when medical care is likely, medical insurance will be costly if possible and medical costs are very high.
So you really need to have a total well thought out plan for your intent.

penal and health forms

Thank you very much for your advice, I will wait then till i am granted a visa then later i can invite my dad for long visits. I believe this would be more convenient.
Another question please, should i proceed with health and penal evidences or i should wait for someone to contact me?
Thank you

I feel it is best to wait for if visa processing is lengthy and it can be for a number of reasons doing medicals/police checks could mean that they will not be considered valid.
