Customer reply replied 6 months ago
the problem shes having is that she want to renew her student visa and her parents refuse to sign some form requested by immigration. They refused to sign because they are going back to afirca and they want the child to go with them but the child doesnt want to so i decide to be a guardian for her so i be eligible to sign her forms

this is a complicated situation as the parents have legal jurisdiction, but to answer your question how to achieve want you require i would need to speak to you on the phone.

I invite you to accept the offer.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
regarding the initiating application, will it make a legal guardian over the underage if her parents agree to sign

no

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
oh so what does the initiating application actually does because i thought you said it will give me the same power as her parents

no... i said this will commence the proceedings so you can seek an order from the court.

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
is there any other form that will can fill by her parents and me to make a legal guardian in a short time

no, it has to go through the court as I explained to you on the telephone.

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
yea i know it has to go through the court but am asking if there is another way instead of submitting the initiating application.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
you said the initiating application will only commence the application, so am asking if there wil be another way too immediately start the process

you have to go through the family court procedure.

I recommend that you engage a lawyer to assist with this process as it can be a little complicated to navigate.
