Australian immigration law provides pathways for Australian citizens, permanent residents and eligible New Zealand citizens to sponsor certain family members to join them in Australia. However, Australia’s family migration laws are complex and it is essential to obtain clear and correct advice to avoid lengthy delays or negative outcomes.
