Me and my wife have been married for almost 2 years. We met in Brisbane while I was travelling and she was an International student. 11 months after we met we decided to get married as we are genuinely in love. We applied for a partner visa so my wife could stay in Australia with me. After a year and a half we received the response for our application. My wife has been rejected of her partner visa application because of her health condition (lupus). They wrote in the letter that she will be a burden for the system by using the medicare and a burden to tax payers. And that her skills are not in demand in Australia. She studied childcare while we were still dating which was in demand in 2016.

We are a married couple and them rejecting her to stay means that we have to live apart which is not really an option as I'm an Australian citizen and I want her to live with me so we can start a family someday.

Has anybody been in a situation like this before and how did you resolve the issue?

Thanks.

Hi Pmtc0110

I would suggest consulting with a registered migration agent to discuss your options. Generally, it is possible for the partner visa sponsor to appeal the matter to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (strict time limits apply). However, I first suggest obtaining an opinion about your likelihood of succeeding at the tribunal. A migration agent can also advise you of any alternative visa options that may be available.

Feel free to send me an email (details below).

Kind regards

Yes you do need a Registered Migration Agent.

The two names that are often put forward for medical issues with visas are George Lombard and Peter Bollard.

agent referrals

Thank you for your referrals

Do you know roughly how much they charge if I appoint one of them as my agent?

I am currently looking for one and found an Agent named John Preston Young. Does anyone have testimony of his credentials. He's the only one who seem very confident that I have come across with.

The two I mentioned are who many consider the best Registered Migration Agents for medical issues.

Lisa that replied to your post is a regular agent that posts on this forum as with others on the sticky list.

I recommend all on the sticky list as well as the two others.

Not heard of John Young, but seems from where I live and been a RMA since 1992 but most costs I have seen of RMA's seem less than Johns that I saw - but that could be chalk and cheese.
