Hi Mary Jane,
I think on this one, I would share your lack of confidence with it proceeeding well and especially if he does not even know basic details and btw the African is the applicant, along with the child and your friend the sponsor.
And what theskyisblue has posted is indicative of even near normal circumstances
For theskyisblue Congrats btw for you and your partner.

But though as has been said, age differences alone will not see an application failed, the more it is and this is getting to an extreme difference, Immi will look very closely at the whole situation.
And he will need to have the assets and income to be approved as a sponsor or an Assurer of Support arranged.

It may be best for you to disentangle yourself as much as possible from this one and even suggest to your friend that he at least has an initial consultation with a reputable agent, trying to find one that will not be seeing just a fee.

I reckon your friend has buckleys of getting the visa approved. To give you an idea, my fiance just got his 300 visa approved a couple weeks back (he is also from a high risk country -- in south america), and they expected an AWFUL LOT of documentation & evidence, more than i ever thought. We've been in a relationship for almost 4 years, have travelled extensively together, he's been to australia for a visit, we lived together in UK, i've been to his country 3 times, we've met each others family & have lots of mutual friends, & i could demonstrate that i'd made an effort to learn his native language etc. Yet It was still very difficult to get approved & felt quite touch & go. Our case officer seemed to also place some importance on my last trip to his country (trip was after we'd already submitted the app, she
requested evidence of it) . I guess because no-one would go to south
america over christmas/new year unless they were in a committed r'ship --
too expensive

I don't think you have anything to worry about, as trust me, DIAC will go
through that app w/ a fine tooth comb to sort the wheat from the chaff. It is
very very wise of you not to provide "sponsership" as its an enormous
undertaking -- at least 2 years, & you would be responsible for costs for not
only her, but her child. I'm sure DIAC will wonder how your friend intends
to support the upbringing of a child in Aust if he doesn't have the means to
do so.... Also I would not, if i were you, complete a stat dec to attest
genuineness of their r'ship if you are at all suspect. It is a stat dec afterall, &
there are heavy consequences if they discover you've said something
false.
Thank you for your replly just to clarify she is not bringing in her daughter and for "me" this is worst than bringing her in as what mother leaves their 10 year old daughter behind while they go and find themselves a better life in a country as beautiful as ours. Sorry I am confusing terms here, he didn't want me to sponsor her as he will be doing that but he wanted me to sign a stat dec which I refused. I have told him NOT to lie on any of these forms and I am sure he hasn't because I have advised him of the consequences. The two people that signed the declarations are not employed and have never met her. They have stated this on the forms and said they have spoken to her once on the phone. I am just so worried about my friend being hurt but at the same time I do not like the idea of people trying to use innocent citizens for their own benefit (if this is the case sorry I am being very judgemental aren't I) she has no skills or degree and he doesn't want her working when she gets here as he wants her to be a housewife which I tried to explain that this will make things even harder as she will need to come in with something.

Wanderer thank you I have in actual fact just told him I want nothing to do with it and he has in actual fact just paid an agent a fee today to assist him further. It just upsets me that he wont even do all these little things for himself. Taking the immigration process out of the question, wouldn't you want to meet her family, wouldn't you want to see her country, wouldn't you want her to visit yours, wouldn't you want to take the time to get to know everything about each other in detail?.... I know I would and being with my partner for 6 years there are still things you learn and want to learn how does one decide on a fiancÚ visa getting married etc etc over the Internet. Anyway sorry being judgemental again.... I just hope to god that the immigration dept DO look over this app with much suspicion as there are plenty of people out there in the world who deserve coming to our country on a honest and genuine note.

Look they may be really in love and I may be wrong but my friend just wont listen to me and how hard it can be. He will go broke before anything.
