It does not matter where the wedding is actually performed. Both the US and Australia (like virtually all countries) recognise marriages that have been legally performed according to the laws of the country where the wedding took place. If they get married in the US, then after getting married, your son's wife would apply for one of the Australian Partner ...

The easiest thing to do is to get a State ID. This can be easily done at a local MVD. Another option would be to get a Driver License. Since you're from Australia*, you will need to get a car (either from a friend or rented) and take a computer and road test. For either option, I recommend getting an ID valid for Federal Identification (air travel). You ...

You need a lawyer. You have about 20,000 GBP of outstanding fines. You are committing a visa offence by overstaying your visa. The fact that you have no proof of income and do have some money suggests to me (and will suggest to the Australian authorities) that you have been working cash-in-hand, and hence are guilty of tax offences.

I'm modifying my answer based on the very helpful information pointed out by the OP. Work in the field you're applying for and that you want to count as skilled employment (for points), must be done after you have met your "skill level requirement met" date. That date is determined by when you have finished two years of suitable work experience and some ...

If you include only the bachelor's study, you will show you've done only 1 year of study. That's less than the 2 years required for the visa. If you include only the master's, you will show only 1.5 years of study. That's also less than the 2 years required for the visa. Thus, if you want to meet the visa requirement, you should include both courses of ...

Australian permanent visas do not need to be renewed, as long as you remain in Australia and do not travel overseas. However, if you do travel overseas, there is a limit in terms of a "travel facility". From the Department's web site: When you are granted a permanent visa, you are usually permitted a 5-year travel facility. This means you can leave and ...

If you don’t know this information, you should contact the staff at your nearest immigration office. You can still apply for a permanent visa if you have been banned from re-entering Australia. Your immigration history ...
