Hi! New member in need of help

My name is Bec and I was born and raised in Australia. I have signed up because my partner and I are wanting to apply for partner visa (preferably) or prospective marriage visa and he has dual citizenship in Albania and Greece. My partner and I have been living together in the UK since the very beginning of June 2017 and have been in a relationship since January 2016. The problem and questions we have is that my partner got into an altercation at work with a collegue and my partner admitted guilt as he initiated the fight which is on CCTV. There was no injuries and no injuries will be included in the case. My partner will have a court date probably in January and as he admitted to the assault this is seen as a conviction. The level of the conviction falls under assault by beating and is the lowest level of punishment etc as there were no injuries to factor in and wasn't serious however we are concerned how this will affect the visa application. My partner otherwise has a clean criminal record. Has anyone else been in this situation before when applying for a visa? How does this affect the visa? Do we need to wait 5-7 years before applying? What if we apply and show he is rehabilitated through an anger management class or something like this, does it help? What is the likelihood of us getting the visa? He has not been convicted yet and we believe the outcome to be something minor like a fine. We were not sure whether to come to Australia now and apply onshore or wait until after the court date. Thanks for helping

Dear Bec,

Im sorry to hear this has happened. It is not unusual. Being honest is the best thong to do.

To answer your question, Yes, it will create issues with your partners application.

A conviction causes character concerns as it is one of the questions that need to be answered on any of the Partner Visa Applications.

In addition, both you and your partner will need current and valid Police Checks. These convictions will need to be "brought to the table" so to speak.

Character issues have been at the forefront of Immigration since the Lindt Cafe seize 15th december 2014.

It will depend on the sentence he is given in January.

I suggest using the services of an experienced Registered Migration Agent. Your application will not be easy.

I hope I have helped you ;0
