Considering I am wanting to go across the other side of the world for him that pretty much tells you I would do anything to be with him!

I already did, came from Ireland to be with my girlfriend!

Nothing that you wont do when you love someone, love should be unconditional, even if it takes you to the ends of the earth :)

You get back up, dust yourself off, and you just do what you gotta do to make things work, and if that means leaving again, then thats whats gotta be done!!

Australias amazing, we absolutely love it, and want to do our best to get to stay here for longer, but it wont define us a couple, it wont change us if we dont get to stay! We are who we are because we love each other, because we have no expectations of each other, and our love is unconditional with each other!

So many times in life your gonna be faced with the hardest things and the hardest decisions to make, but you cant let them grind you down! Lifes full of victims, and if you wanna be one, then life will just treat you like one!

I really believe in staying positive, doing your best in life, doing things the way they are supposed to be done in regards to immi etc!

If things dont work, it wont be for the lack of trying on our part! But you just gotta do your best!

Dont let things get you down! Stay on top of them no matter how hard or high they appear!

In regards to my partner, there is nothing we would'nt do for each other, we will always be strong no matter where we are, whether here in Australia, Ireland or any other part of the world!

I often read the threads on here and peoples stories and experiences, and some of them are heart wrenching and so unfair at times with people going through hell!!

Johnny Cash once said "if your going through hell, keep going"

Dont get bogged down with everything, no matter how hard things are, keep going, even if it is just little steps!!

Hope everyone on here gets what they want :)

What beautiful words JB1234 its true what you say you and your partner are together and that's wonderful, recently i was reading a members post and the visa was declined/refused and unfortunately that member saw this as the end of the relationship, one at one side of the world and another at the other side, i found this heart wrenching, it got me thinking what people would do in this situation when everything seems lost.

Yea i actually find that quite sad as well!

If you feel you have something worth fighting for, then never give up that fight! Nothing would stop us being together! And sometimes hard conversations have to be had!

We've already discussed the possibilities of not getting to stay here! Because unfortunately as we see on here time and time again, its not just a possibility but a realistic view that our visa may be refused as well!

For us it will be most definitely be disaspointing and soul destroying! But we already know that whatever we do, it will be together!! The loads always lighter when its shared!

We spent a lot of time apart with her being here and me back home, so we know the heartache of being apart! We dont want to go through that again!

Dont make the mistake of losing sight of what you actually want together!

Jumping through all the hoops with immi etc can make you focus on that single goal of getting things granted etc, and take away from what you actually are as a couple, so i find it sad that the person you mentioned saw the relationship as being over because of a visa being declined! For me id simply be looking at what else i could then do to make it work!

If you want things in life and want to be with someone, you will always find a way, otherwise whats the point of it alll!

I must be an old romantic (well not actually that old :) lol) but I honestly think that where there is true love, people will always find a way to be together - whatever it takes.

We have discussed it thoroughly. We chose Australia over the USA in the first place because my qualifications will transfer, but his won't. If we get turned down, we have discussed our options... And while nothing short of giving up is financially a healthy choice, we both agreed that there is nothing in this world that can keep us apart. We will do what we have to do.

We faced this situation in march last year our 300visa declined after 11.5 months we were so shocked we never expected that to happen. I felt suicidal and angry at the world and god but luckily got some help from my gp and have been on anti depressants ever since which keep me semi sane lol. We never contemplated breaking up for an instant. At the same time my fiances work place burnt down in Malaysia and his visa to study/work there was due to expire. So many problems all at once was soul destroying. But we picked ourselves up and packed up the rental house and he moved back to Ghana. We filed a mrt appeal inapril. 2yrs to wait. Nov filed second 300 visa. We renovated what was basically a tin roof and walls with no power or water on family land into a one bed aptmt with internal bathroom and kitchen luxury lol. I spent a. Month there last Christmas . We set up a little family market shop for his mum and I'm planning another 3 week trip in July. So u ask what would I do if our visa was rejected? Lol I guess this shows we would do anything. If this visa and then appeal also fails I will move to accra. I thank god every day for my wonderful man to me he is an angel sent from heaven he is perfect and has never let me down. Life is tough and has been for over 4 years now but we will never stop fighting to be together

Why were you guys rejected?
On the bright side, I think it's safe to say you guys will never have to doubt the strength of your love/commitment!

Our lawyer/agent was guilty of malpractice. She only submitted 30 of the 200 photos we gave her and 3 of 8 stat decs we gave her. Her xcuse was "I thought I gave them enough" and "maybe I made a mistake". Despite this our new lawyer said we still should have been approved. Decision notice was full of outright lies. Apparently we have no common belief system, though we are both Christians, we have nothing in common, despite listing numerous things we do together, backed up by photos they never saw I.e. bowling sport cooking love of history, travelled to 3 different countries together and all over Malaysia and I visited him over 15 times in 2 years and the most ridiculous reason of all they believe this relationship will fail because my 2 previous relationships failed. Omg what woman hasn't had a few relationships fail before meeting the love of their life. New lawyer said it was the most out rightly racist letter he has seen in 20 years of practice. I work in law myself and I researched everything and I compiled the most meticulous application possible. Worse 2 friends we introduced who has only been together 3 months when they applied and who used same lawyer as us were approved! Soul destroying is an u derstatement. But u are right this has made us even stronger than ever and I no we will faceanyfuture challenge together.

My partner and I haven't discussed this in depth, but we actually plan to within the next few days (because I am beyond terrified of my visa being denied) - so I will update this after our discussion. :p

If our offshore de facto partner visa were denied, we might file for an appeal if we thought we had a good chance of the appeal changing the decision. If not, we would try to re-group and gather as much information as we possibly could to reapply. We would consider getting engaged or married to apply for a PMV or married partner visa. We would pay the money to hire a migration agent if we thought that would help our chances as well. In the meantime, we would visit each other as much as we could - and if possible, I would go to Australia on a temporary visa and then apply for an onshore partner visa once there. If all else failed, he would likely apply for a partner visa to live with me in the US.

Is it frowned upon to move to Australia on a temporary visa and then shortly after apply for an onshore partner visa? What if you had an (offshore) partner visa denied beforehand?
