I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the visa me and my family might require and if anyone has had a similar experience.
Me and my parter have been together since 2009 and we are getting married on 23rd August 2014, we have a one year old daughter and have lived together since January 2010.
My partner lived in Adelaide for 6 years and was married (and now divorced) to an australian citizen, he has a 5 and a half year old daughter living in Adelaide. He had his residency accepted but cancelled it and moved to England after the breakdown of his marriage. My parter is a qualified self employed bricklayer and has been since he was 18 (he is now 31) He also did this job for the 6 years he lived in Adelaide.
We would like to return to Australia as a family in 2017. We have a family of Australian citizens willing to sponsor us as my partner remains good friends and is still in contact with the friends he made in Adelaide while living there.
We are unsure of what the most cost effective visa would be to enable us to to move to Australia as a family. I have contacted a few agents via the MARA website but so far they have proved unhelpful and i am still none the wiser.
Look forward to hearing from you.
