unusual verification procedure

Hi,

I was just wondering if its a normal procedure for the immigration to visit the house of the ex husband where my kids stay as well (who are being sponsored too by my partner) to verify my answers and statements during the interview.

Does that mean that they doubt the authenticity of my statements?I dont know what to think so I wanted to ask if someone has had similar experience.I havent encountered anyone so much of the same experience.

Thanks if you could share yours.

Weng

There's not too many people posting Weng that have applied and had your situation.
There're a number of reasons to do it which may include that you were in Australia overstaying for four years and working from your other post and now you are wanting to include children you've not seen all that time in your application.
First off, you need the father's decision or a court order and if you have provided either of those with your application, Immi are being prudent in checking to get their own impression of how the situation actually is for the last thing they want to do is create a situation that is going to be disrruptive to the children's future or even that of the father if he has been caring for them.
They will probably want to verify that the support payments you mentioned did help with the childrens upbringing.

On that note, for children being included in a partner visa he will need an Australian police check too if he hasn't done that or doesn't know he has to.

But Immi do make various checks as they see fit based on circumstances.
Given the overstay and working for cash [ taxation ? ! ] , count yourself lucky if the visa goes through OK.

Thanks for the reply Wanderer...but we have done police check, have been interviewed and have done evrything possible to prepare a correct application.However, we could only do so much and we know we were up against a huge wall when we started gathering the documents and applying for my visa.

I understand the checks but the wait is just giving me and my partner anxiety and stress which I guess is normal.It has taken 4months already from the time of application but I know we have to be patient if we wanted good results but sometimes I am tempted to contact the CO.

It was because of persistent issue of infidelity and incompatibility that I fled and met my partner.Divorce is not accepted in my catholic country and planning on seeking annulment which is expensive and time consuming if and when the application doesn't end in our favor...We are still keeping our fingers crossed though that we will go through this with a yes.We didnt get an outright no and the CO just asked for additional documents twice plus the gruelling interview.

I am just waiting for my son to be cleared of his health issues for it takes 6mois medication then final clearance by Canberra after he gets checked by the Panel Doctor.

Thanks anyway for taking the time to read my post and reply to it.I will keep you posted for any development.
