A family from Scotland was able to avoid deportation after Mark Green was hired by a solar company in Australia in 2012.
He was able to work and live in the country for three years before the company he was working for closed down.
Mark applied for more work and was repeatedly told by the federal government that he can’t stay.
In August, the family was ordered to return to Scotland.
They then spent thousands of dollars in legal fees fighting to stay in Australia.
Mark told 2GB radio that his family was finally allowed to stay in the country and have permanent residency.
