First off, congratulations! Have you already received a file reference number from DIMIA? If you have, then you should write a letter to them stating when you expect the baby to be born. If your application is processed and the visa is granted before the baby is born, then you should probably try to travel to Australia and have the baby there. It might be best to delay the process with DIMIA, wait until the baby is born, submit the birth certificate (certified copy) and passport photos of the child, and have him/her included in your application. Then you will all be granted PR visas after the baby is born. I think that this option would be less complicated.
Hope this helps!

We have already recieved the file number and expec the baby to be born before the papers come thru. We live in the US. This is what i was planning to do
Have the baby in the US
Get the Australian Residency
We land and return to the US
and then apply for the child
Is it possible to do the above? Is it possible to apply for the child when we are out of the country?
