    Posted: 18/March/2008 at 23:29
 A colleague has told me she has been diagnosed with an incurable disease. There is a possibility she will die before her 457 contract is completed in November 2008. Her husband is living in Australia as a spouse on her 457 visa. If she dies before November 2008, he is likely to be deported. She may be too sick to be flown home now.
Are there compassionate grounds that can allow her to stay in Australia even though she is too sick to work?
Are there any other concerns about her inability to complete her work contract?
How can I help her?

Tracey, call DIAC in SA you don't have to give them any names, just ask for general information and they might be able to give you an idea on what can be done.
