  • Domestic Violence

    Unfortunately a number of relationships between Australians and foreign partners result in domestic violence – when this happens you need a migration lawyer working with your domestic violence/family lawyer because;

    1. the “foreign” partner is often entitled to bridging visas and immediate permanent residency (without waiting the normal two years) especially where partners have a child;
    2. The partners have had a child or where one partner is pregnant.
    3. A conviction for domestic violence can stop a visa applicant passing the 501 character test.
    4. The Australian may want to sponsor a new foreign partner in the future (domestic violence convictions can prevent you getting a partner visa in the future!).

    We have extensive expertise in domestic violence matters and securing bridging visas and immediate permanent residency on the basis of a domestic violence issue and drafting submissions to have a domestic violence conviction waived so that an Australian can sponsor a new partner.
