sponsoring spouse while unemployed

I am getting married overseas this December. I have only known my soon to be husband for just little over a month now but have never met face to face only over Skype and via phone calls. We would only have known each other for about 9 months by Dec. Will I be able to sponsor him over to Australia whilst on Centrelink? but am currently studying in TAFE.
Any advice please
Thank you

Hi Leezy and welcome to the forum!! Sponsoring your spouse while on centrelink is not a problem. They removed the Assurance of Support obligation from this visa a few years ago!

HOWEVER!!! I suggest you have good read of the partner migration booklet!! Sponsoring your spouse to live in Australia is now a very expensive and very complex process that requires a LOT of evidence to prove the genuine nature of your relationship you will need evidence of combining of your lives - cohabitation/joint utilities/shared finances/social events etc.

Based on your circumstances I would suggest not applying for a defacto visa (as even when married you have to be able to provide good evidence of a genuine and continuing relationship)....go and visit your partner face to face...then apply for a prospective marriage visa - and marry in Australia once it's been granted!! There is a lot less evidence required for this visa and you can apply after you have met face to face!! Meeting/getting married on the same visit and then applying for a spouse visa - has a very high chance of rejection!!
