Dear Legal Forum,
I have a question about the legal right of a parent and Australian born child.
Few days ago I have been told ( my piano student) that his mother left they sister of 2 years old in India. I know that little girl have a heart problem and have had a heart surgery a couple of times. When I have asked the mother why she left her little baby girl there, she didn't like it. She said that they will fly to India in two month and bring her back. I am warring that they will not do that. After this conversation , doth of her boys didn't come for a lesson.
Now, can a patent of an Australian citizen simply leave child behind?

There is nothing illegal with leaving a child in someone elses care as long as the child is being properly cared for.

It is not unusual in some cultures for a child to live with, and be brought up by a relative.

This is always assuming both parents are in agreement.

You say the child has some medical condition, perhaps the condition prevented the child traveling with the parents, perhaps there are visa problems with the child traveling till the condition is rectified.

You can always advise the children's services department in your state if you believe the child is at risk. However if the child is in another country, they may be limited in what they can do.
