I’ve accepted the child as my own. Can I apply for Citizenship by Descent?

You are here:

No, definitely not. The child must have at least one parent who is an Australian Citizen. Adding your name as the father, ie. “giving the child your name” sounds very gallant, and no doubt the intentions are wonderful. However it happens to be a crime.

I was thinking of just adding the child onto a Partner Visa application. What’s best?
What age can the child be for a Child Visa?
