What to do next when your parent visa is refused - The importance of lateral thinking

The Applicant and sponsor sought the assistance of Immigration Solutions Lawyers in the preparation and lodgement of a Subclass 804 Aged Parent visa application. The Applicant arrived in Australia at 82 years of age and wished to remain in Australia to live with his only child.

The team at Immigration Solutions conducted a detailed review of the Applicants background and provided a submission explaining that the Applicant was living alone in his home country while his only child was a permanent resident of Australia. Immigration Solutions Lawyers provided a comprehensive submission of the Applicants life overseas and that the Sponsor was the only relative available to look after the Applicant. The application was refused by the Department due to the development of a recent medical condition.

Over the course of the next few months the team at Immigration Solutions Lawyers decided with the Applicant and Sponsor that a Subclass 602 Medical Treatment visa would be the best option of the Applicant.

Immigration Solutions compiled a new submission explaining the reason as to why the Sponsor would be the only relative available to look after the family member and that due to his medical condition the Applicant would needed continual care with age.

In support of the argument put forwarded, Immigration Solutions showed that the Applicant satisfied the balance of family test and provided detailed medical documentation from a medical physician. Immigration Solutions provided evidence establishing that the Applicant would require daily care to perform basic tasks. Documentation provided detailed the severity of the applicant’s condition and constituted grounds for the Applicant to remain in Australia.
Immigration Solutions were able to obtain a positive outcome for the Applicant and Sponsor as he was granted a Subclass 602 Medical Treatment visa and is currently receiving treatment.
