    Default PR for Children

    Hi,

    I was just wondering. My husband and I got divorced since moving to NZ, which resulted in my visa being revoked as we came in on a LTBV on his application. My kids visas were not affected.

    He is now going to be applying for PR for himself and says that he cannot apply for PR for the children unless he has sole custody of the kids. Is this true?????

    Does he have to have sold custody of the children to get them PR???

    Hi if you have a look at
    F5.20 Dependent children under 16 whose parents are separated or divorced
    or
    F5.25 Dependent children under 16 with only one parent holding...
    that may clear that up

    my reading of that looks like that is not the case bur just one way .
    The other seems to be that you would need to write and say you were ok with it

    Its not very clear like the rest of the Immigration site. I may have to contact a lawyer regarding this one?

    Thanks for your reply.
