Good EveningMy name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advice but a guide to assist you.You cannot marry more than 1 in australia it is against the law. Any second spouse you have is defacto. You cannot sponsor a second wife. You are only permitted to sponsor 1. If you want to sponsor another you have to show you and your first wife are divorced. I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services. If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask. Please do not forget to leave positive feedback. RegardsLeon
