What happens if you lose your job?

As a sponsor what happens if you lose your job? is it best to look for another before notifying immigration?

I'm scared after so much time, effort and money it's all going to be for nothing if I am a jobless sponsor. My partner is full time tho.

We are applying 820 visa, married, living together, renting and his 6 month job restriction runs out in a month where he will apply for an extension. should his reason be because of me? It's all become such a mess lately and b4 this we had high hopes.

Ho mossyrocks,

Sorry to hear about your unfortunate situation - we have enough stress to deal with going through this process, a job loss is the last thing you need!

I don't think it would affect your partner's application however I think this change of circumstances does need to be conveyed to Immi, as you would have submitted documents (pay slips, tax returns, and / or letter from employer) in support of his application which are unfortunately no longer immeidately relevant. As I understand it the AOS has now been abolished, so I think they now just review your capacity to support your partner on a case by case basis. But if he is effecitvely now supporting you then just convey that to them and hopefully there won't be an issue. Obviously as soon as you find another job be sure to let them know straight away

I'm scared tho, to say in not working now. I feel like they will reject our app. I will come clean tho in a couple weeks, when I send the medical in. That's another mishap where I as the sponsor needs a medical too, as I'm officially an eligible nz citizen even tho I've been in Australia since 1982.

that's fine tho, we will do whatever they ask...when you say the aos has been abolished that is also peace of mind.

Hopefully they just see we are genuine and supporting each other.
