Good evening

You need the divorce papers from pakistan to be married here as evidence your marriage is over.

You do not need to get an australian divorce. You have the pakistani one and that is enough.

You can remarry here.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon

If you are not a permanent resident you cannot sponsor anyone.

If you are a temporary resident you will be deported when they find out you are divorced.

If you have not sponsored anyone before and you are a permanent resident then you can sponsor the new husband

m asking should i need to wait to remarry in pakistan bfre australin divorce finalize or my pakstano divorce will be enough in order to sponsor my hsbnd

The divorce from pakistan is acceptable to Immigration to prove your marriage is disolved and you are free to marry

You do not need an australian divorce

The pakistani divorce is acceptable as proof and recognised by the Australian authorities.

You do not have to get a divorce in each country.

One is enough.

If you are legally divorced in pakistan you are divorced in australia

Or fr the proof how can i tell australian gvt tht my dvrce has happend
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Or can i also apply fr australian divirce on octber fr safest side

You have to provide the divorce certificate from pakistan and a translation from an official

That is how you prove it.

Just telling them is not good enough.

If you wish to apply for an Australian Divorce you can as well but you will have to wait to marry if you will rely on the Australian Divorce.

I turned 31 in 2002 and at this time up to 2006 I was living in the UK, upon my return I took out health cover which didn't include hospital which I then changed the following year and added hospital cover. I've been told that because I didn't have hospital cover with 12 months of my return they have also included the 4 years I was away on to the loading which doesn't seem to be fair or lawful for that matter and I feel that I should only have a 4% loading.
