  1. Asking this question on behalf of a friend who is very concerned that her 22 yr old son has been manipulated into marrying an overseas student who only had the aim of marrying to stay in Australia. Yes, the son is an adult but a naïve and immature one - lived at home until after the marriage, never had another girlfriend and just finished his studies. There were a number of red flags when they were going out including the girlfriend (now wife) exceeding the 20 hour working limit, not attending classes and lying about her age, her job, her previous marriage overseas and her children from that relationship. My friend and her husband only found out about the wedding by accident - it was kept secret from them. The son and wife have now applied for the 820/801 Partner visa. It seems they have both claimed in their supporting documents (relationship statement) that the girlfriend was living with the son at the family home and that she would interact with all the family - cooking dinners etc - all fibs. Does anyone know how thorough or detailed reviews by case managers are? Would they contact parents and family as a matter of course? My friend has considered reporting her concerns online but her husband is very against this. In that context, the easier option for her would be for any action to be out of their hands. She knows either path will end in unhappiness but ultimately is hoping to protect her son from long term heartbreak and financial devastation. Any advice welcome - thanks.
