Hi everyone. I am currently on a 457 Visa and will be applying for my PR ( permanent residency) in August. We have a 7 year old son. Things have gotten worse between my partner and I. We tried counselling, but it didn't help so we have decided to divorce as we have been living separate under same roof for more than 18 months now. However, because of my child, we decided that we will wait until the residency is obtained. 1. Can we file for divorce straight after applying for PR, or should we wait until the PR comes through? Will we need a family lawyer? If we have to wait, how long after getting the residency can we file for divorce? 2. How long after divorce are we are allowed to marry another person? Any advice would be helpful. Many thanks.
