Children should never be forcefully separated from their parents against their will.
My son Max had been residing in Japan for the last decade. During this time, he learnt the language, worked and married a Japanese woman. They had a child but shortly after, his wife left without any notice, taking the daughter and blocking any chances of search. This was devastating for Max, as he was a committed husband and father. Currently despite being denied the chance to visit his daughter, he diligently pays monthly child support. Until the divorce will become final, they remain legally married.
Upon his marriage, Max naturally changed his family visa to a spousal visa. As this visa was taken away from him, he applied for a settlement visa but had been denied every time. He has a temporary visa now. Once the divorce is final his deportation is likely.
Max's biological mother (a permanent resident and a well respected teacher in top Aichi institutions) and his Japanese step father and daughter all reside in Japan. Max's wish is to be with his family here, as there is no one in Australia. My husband and I can guarantee his support. As no clear reason for visa denial had been given, we are appealing for a visa that would allow our family unit to stay intact. Please support our appeal!
