Settling down after separation in Australia
Recently a single mother who had left Australia after separation from her husband contacted us in regards to her intention to come back to Australia and settle down with her kids. Settling down as a single father/mother is difficult and most emotional situation for man/woman in the Indian community. It’s something which we Indian aren’t used to and our cultural belief makes it a catch 22 situation. Without going into much detail of individual circumstances we Indian connection thought people should have information necessary to make the next steps in case of a similar situation.
The first step of a broken marriage whether you are separated or in a process of divorce is off course to try patching up with your spouse. The situation is always not the best and there are many factors which hinder your decision making capability. If you look from your kids perspectives probably you would want to change your mind. Whatever your decision might be, seeking a Marriage Counselor advice in India or Australia is first step towards saving your marriage. Professional counselling is the way to go as the counselor would give an unbiased advice of your individual situation and help relieve emotional trauma so that you can take a decision which is right for you.
Getting over the trauma of separation and potential divorce is painful and definitely needs to be put at the back burner if you are thinking of returning to Australia.
Returning to Australia on a spouse PR visa is dependent on the validity of the visa which you can confirm from the visa label on your passport. It’s always good to talk to Australia Embassy in India for confirmation before you plan your travel back to Australia.

The first point of contact to make your move to Australia successful is to contact government family relation online.
