Angel if you can prove sponsor and sponsors parents will assist ( provide a letter / stat dec from sponsors parents) am sure it will be ok. I can tell by what you write here you guys have discussed your financial situation and how you will overcome this, and provide for your future make sure that is also documented in your application
Hi Marymar,

This is actually the main reason it took us years before we will apply for fiance because of the amount of money he earned for past years. He is just 24 right now and he had depression before he even met me. I am not sure how much the immi would require for him to earn annually but for past 2 years, I think it's under 15k a year, but he has been working then, its just its not much. Jobs are really hard at the moment. This is why we also think its risky to apply before eventhough we have a lot of evidence for genuine relationship, and been in Australia for 2 times. And to be honest even this time, we still are doubtful to apply, we dont want to lose $4k and not being able to be together. It has been 2 tough years for us two.

I totally understand my partner and I first meet 2009, its been a long long process and each day apart its feels like we are missing out on life and just want to start our own life together, just the normal things normal couples get to enjoy. And yes it is risky so you want to give yourself good chance of success and the process is not cheap, when you add up the flights, processing paper work and just the application for visa it is a lot of money. If I win lotto tomorrow night will be sure to send some coin your way to put in the bank to assist your application then you have peace of mind to submit and can be together

Megz, ask Mark but I think there is another way perhaps where the sponsors parents can be guarantors? Basically they look the parents income stability more to assist with your application might me worth investigating for you two to be together sooner

Megz here > What is an Assurance of Support?
The AoS scheme allows welfare costs for certain migrants to be met by an Australian permanent resident or citizen, rather than the Australian community.

An AoS is a legal commitment by a person (the assurer), not necessarily the sponsor, to provide financial support to a person applying to migrate (the assuree) so that they will not have to rely on social welfare payments.

It is also a commitment to repay to the Australian Government certain welfare payments if payments are paid to the assuree during their AoS period.

In some circumstances, an assurer will also need to provide a financial bond.

An AoS lasts for:

10 years for contributory parent visa holders
two years for all other visa types where an AoS is needed.
The AoS period begins on:

the date of visa grant, if the applicant is in Australia
or
the date the visa holder arrives in Australia, if the applicant was outside Australia when the visa was granted.
Note: The AoS (including the AoS bond component) remains in place for the duration of the AoS period, regardless of whether or not the person applying to migrate has become an Australian citizen or obtained a different visa (except where that visa is a humanitarian visa). When the relevant visa has been granted, the AoS can only be cancelled (and the AoS bond refunded) in very limited circumstances as determined by the Department of Human Services (DHS).

Hi Marymar,

Yeah I have read about that as well. It requires minimum of $5k bond which is refundable(depends how much they require). i don't think they will do this and I am not sure either they will have money just for them to sponsor me. They are both working for at least 10 years in their current work but I don't think they are considered as rich lol for them to sponsor and provide this bond. They wanted my fiance to support and sponsor me since they said they will provide free accommodation while we save for our own. For the past tourist visas I applied, they were one who made the invitation letter. We havent even asked the parents yet if they can write a letter for us saying they provide free accommodation and financial help if we will be in trouble. I hope they wont mind though lol well anyway, yeah, his mum is wishing to win xlotto as well hahah but ohwell, i hope you win too, not for you to help us but because you deserve it

Thanks,
Megz

You don't have to live together to share a life together or to be committed.
40 SP
Q. 24 When did you and the visa applicant commit to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others? .....Basically when did you start boyfriend / girlfriend status, I asked my fiancee to be my girlfriend on line ( so we have a date we committed ourselves to each other even if we were not living together, we were serious to each other exclusively)

Q.25 Since you and the visa applicant committed to a shared life together to
the exclusion of all others, have you lived separately and apart for any
periods or time? ...My answer > Yes > Reason, I am a permanent resident and employed in Australia my fiancee is from Philippines, visa restrictions keep us separated.

Similar to the above hope it assists
