Did you marry a Filipina single mum? Are you bringing her to Australia on a partner visa, and are you bringing your new Filipino child or children with you? That means you and your Filipina wife will be forming a new family together. Good for you! You're clearly a good man. Well done!
Here is some advice about how to make your new Australian Filipina family formation go well, and not be a source of misery and insecurity for all involved. Both Australian Dad and Filipina Mother need to be united in parenting to make a mixed family work successfully, and that means primarily that mum must allow the new dad to be a dad and not to be a step-father or "Uncle Steve".

So speaking Tagalog or the local dialect in front of the English-speaking Dad or insisting on only eating Filipino food, this will drive a wedge down the middle of your new family. You need to learn to share parenting and to respect each other's position as well as opinion and child-raising standards.
