Default Not married, is it a problem?

I intend moving to Aus with my girlfriend of 6 years and 5 year old son.

I have 10 years IT experience so that side of things shouldn't be a problem.

Will the fact that we are not married be one?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Glyn.

Given that you are eligible for a skilled visa, I would expect your partner and child to be granted visas as well. Read the details at this link for more info:

Best regards.

no problem. I did the same thing. You will be in what's called a
de-facto relationship over here. My de-facto wife and my kid are both here on my visa.

No it won't be a problem as long as you have been living together for more than
12 months.
