Seeking advice for parent's visa

Hi all

Its been long since I posted my last mail. we have a baby girl after we migrated to Australia. My mother in law came to give my wife a hand as we r finiding it bit challenging on our own, My wife is the only child of her parents and my mother in law is a widow and she also has no own else to look after her. Our daughter is only 4 months old and we really grateful for my mother in law being here to give us a hand. Is there any way so that we can bring her and be with us permanently/ long stay?

We will be very grateful as always for your kind advise.

It will depend on her age and if she can be in Australia on a visa without a No Further Stay condition, an ETA for instance that may decide her best option.
Have a look at the onshore and offshore options via Family - Visas & Immigration and the parent visa for offshore does not have an age factor but like all parent visas there can be a huge wait time, and that just gets longer the more people that apply.
The onshore visa does have an age factor and if she meets that and is able to enter Australia on a visa that dos not have a No Stay Condition, she could apply for a parent visa and will get a bridging visa until there is a decision on her application.
For both there is a contributory visa that shortens the wait time but it is quite expensive.
