What are balance of family tests?

Balance of family tests are applied to parent sponsorship in Parent visa applications. 

The balance of family test is the weighing of eligible with ineligible children.

Eligible children are those considered to be usually resident in Australia. For example, PR or citizens of Australia.

Ineligible children are those usually resident in an overseas country.

All children and step children are considered in the test, and the nature and quality of the relationships are not considered.

The test is applied only at time of application.
