Default Child Migration 47CH and 40CH

I'm trying to fill out form 40CH regarding a visa for our daughter.
I'm having trouble with Part F about Custody and Guardianship, it asks if we have sole legal rights and if yes to attach a certified copy of court order.
We don't have this as she is the daughter of both of us, confused cos I am.
Please if anyone has filled these in could they help.

Thanks Confused Clare

You don't need this if both legal parents sign the sponsorship form. Often forms are badly designed.

Thanks for the quick response, so I just tick the box to say Yes we have sole legal rights. There isn't space for both to sign so should I attach something or just sign underneath.

In the same position - have you got the visa for your child yet?

I'm just filling in the forms and am struggling to fill in Q19 on 40CH. We are still in the UK - how do I prove residence in Australia? We validated our visas two years ago.

It was really quick, Medicals done last Tuesday and sent straight to London, our application was sent in on Friday and we got an email yesterday (Wednesday) saying that the visa has been granted.

With the question about sponsorship obligations Q19, I just typed a quick letter stated that we will be carrying these out by moving to OZ later this August.

Hi - did you wait for your meds to be requested?

For a child visa, sponsor does not need to be "usually resident" in Australia.

If you want help on a specific question, then you might want to repeat what it says as we don't all have the forms in front of us.

No we didn't, the Medical was done 3days before we even sent the application in. The doctors have to send the medical straight to Australia House so it reach them before the application.
On Wednesday I got an email at 9am requesting the Meds then another email at 4pm saying that the visa was granted, they had obviously located the Meds by then.

Quick update.

Had our daughter's medical on the 14/4, sent off her application on 18/4 (with a covering letter giving more information on why we are still in the UK and why she cannot speak English - well she isn't yet four months old!) and today had an email saying her visa had been granted. Nearly missed the email - it was sent to her email account not mine!

Estate agent round today - so here we go, again.

You shouldn't have been asked to explain either of these issues (not part of visa requirements) but not to worry if the visa has now been granted.

Sorry - that was me being sarcastic. We only included the letter to explain why we were not in Australia and why I had ticked 'none' to her command of the English language. Forms were simple to fill in and the visa was granted quickly.

Default Child Migration 47CH and 40CH

Hello all,
I am PR for 1 year and 10 months and plan to have my natural child in Australia on a child VISA.

Question 26 in the 40CH says:
"Have you been in paid employment at any time in the past 2 years?".

If I answer to this question with NO, is the VISA for my child refused? What are the consequences of answering NO to this question.

Thank you.
Horea.
