How Can We Help?
You are here:

Her son has a biological father she was married to. Can we get him a Child Visa?

Only if (a) you have his written permission for the child to migrate permanently, or (b) there is a court order removing his custodial rights.

She wasn’t married to the father of the child. Can we get him a Child Visa?
When can we apply for a Child Visa?

    Is this court order in the Philippines recognised by the Australian immigration? If not, what would need to happen to have it recognised?

    • Jeff Harvie

      The Department DOES recognize court orders issued by Philippines courts. Nothing needs to be done.
