Hi all!
Wondering what the consequences of breaking the 6 month working for one employer rule are? I know it shouldnt be done etc etc etc, but we didnt even realise that the rule existed and now may be over the 6 month limit. I'd love to hear from anyone who has broken the rule or knows someone who broke the rule and what consequences they faced.
We are about to apply for a sponsorship visa with me as the de-facto and so also ANY advice on that would be helpful! We have been together for 5 years and have lived together for 3 but the leases are the only evidence of that as we have always maintained separate bank accounts. However, I have bank documents to show money transfers between our accounts over the years and flights taken together etc. Could probably get statutory declarations too from some police officers to confirm our relationship etc fairly easily. Only hitch is, we have been apart for the past 12 months due to work commitments in different countries that needed fulfilling, although we do have a skype call history to prove our relationship over the past 12 months, which shows an hour long call every day for the whole year, plus I can show money transfers and flights to see eachother etc.
Is that going to be enough to secure the de-facto visa? (We are both on the skilled occupations list and immi has pretty much told my partner that he will be granted his sponsorship but the de-facto part is not so clear cut). HELP! I'm so sick of immigration crap! :-(

I doubt that you'll find too many people about who have actually been working over the six months and if that slips under the radar, that;ll just be good luck.
As for the sponsorship secondary applicant, if it is a 457 sponsorship, you could also be lucky with that for it being TR and though the 12 months apart could be a blocker it may not be so much that way if you otherwise have strong evidence.
It is really only something that will be determined with proceeding with an application.
