I'm new here. A twist of the Australian criminal record obsession. My stepson in an Asian country, age 22, would like to visit me. I of course would be the sponsor. I, not my son, have a criminal record. I suspect that the bureaucrats could knock him back because his sponsor is of "poor character". Much as I detest this attitude I must try to help him get a visa. Any suggestions?

Second question, not clear on first search, does one pay ($145) up front and risk no-refund should an application be turned down?

If you can let us know what the nature of the conviction and any sentence is, I can tell you whether he meets the character requirement. 

The visa fee is paid at time of application and it is non-refundable.
