Australian PR status and divorce

Postby Thomas » Wed, 07 Jul 2004 3:05 pm

My spouse and I have applied and have been given approval for migration to Australia.

What I would like to know is will the PR status be revoked for the spouse who is the dependant if we file for a divorce? Can't seem to get a definite answer from other Australia migration sites.

Help needed. Thanks!

Hi Thomas

If you have not validated your Australian permanent residence visa just yet and you file for a divorce prior to your first entry to Australia as permanent residents, then your wife's visa would most likely get cancelled.

It is imperative that you inform DIMIA of any change of your circumstances prior to entry to Australia or your visa as primary applicant may be adversely affected.
