Mish,OP: Have you been able to confirm if the previous visa was approved?
Also how long ago did your ex apply for it?
I was asking because sometimes case officers makes mistakes and maybe it wasn't approved. Not very likely but I am hopeful for the OP that it wasn't approved.According to my understanding, based on the quotation in the mail from DIBP, the visa was approved. I understand(Could be wrong) that they count any successfull application.
What a ridiculous comment to make. Every time I read a comment from you, you seem to be abusing a forum member.I don't think I can believe your story baby, and you should be punished more than just ban!

If you can't offer any useful information then don't say anything at all.
With all due respect to your predicament. There are a lot of us on here who have sponsored/been sponsored and the sheer amount of information we had to gather for our applications + the cost + the waiting = an experience that nothing short of a major head trauma causing memory loss would ever make us forget...it's not like losing your sunglasses or car keys. The whole situation where you were adamant you had never sponsored a partner to then being told by immigration that you have - it's not a situation I think we have ever seen on this forum!!Yep, what can I say, I'm a bloody idiot with a terrible memory. My relationship is probably going to be ruined, I'm glad that interests you.
I imagine it would be quite easy if they were already in the process of getting ready to apply and then they break up. The ex would have all the required forms etc already signed ready to go and could have gone on to submit without the OP's knowledge. Since DIBP don't notify the sponsor the sponsor is none the wiser.First you really need to find out the details of this previous application - date of application/if it was granted etc...All the documents required + the stat decs from Australian citizens to support the application...I cannot imagine how anyone could have falsified an entire application without your knowledge....
Nothing wrong with freedom of speech - when you have all the facts.Maybe my comment a little bit tough, inhuman, ridiculous (or whatever you might call), but it is so true that it stink when someone told you that they forgot they once sponsored their partner to come into Aussie permanently.
I support freedom of speech, and I am not here to only say things that please someone's ears, so ban me if you want!
I hope one person cannot harm the whole forum members. We are ready to assist the OP as much as we can. We cant wish bad omen to happen to anybody who wants our support. I would suggest that negative commemts should not be posted. You help or refrain from posting any negative and rude statement against anybody.Nothing wrong with freedom of speech - when you have all the facts.
Maybe he was aware of the application but was under the impression that it was not lodged or that it was withdrawn...either way who are you to make such a rude comment?
I hope you never go through a situation where you need assistance and receive nothing but abuse from people you were hoping could offer help during a stressful time.
You can say this for 309/820, but what about the second stage of the visa? Can that be the same case too? Highly unlikely.I imagine it would be quite easy if they were already in the process of getting ready to apply and then they break up.

IF it was lodged without the OP's knowledge he may have a case I would imagine. But proving it was without his knowledge would be the hard part.
Maybe only the temporary visa was approved. That is sufficient for the sponsor to be subject to the sponsorship limitation. The ex might even be no longer in Australia...You can say this for 309/820, but what about the second stage of the visa? Can that be the same case too? Highly unlikely.
It is actually quite difficult, because of privacy legislation. You don't get this information just by contacting Immigration.With all respect..
But how hard can it be to find out what happened to an application that one has previously sponsored?
If one contact the immigration, surely they would be able to say:
You have previously sponsored this and that..
And also : You can beacause of this not at all , or not before this date, sponsor someone else..
Can it be more difficult than that..?
I strongly urge the OP to get some professional advice on this. If he has in fact previously sponsored someone and failed (intentionally or not) to declare it, then the applicant may be subject to a refusal and public interest criteria 4020.The issue and topic at hand is whether the OP can sponsor his current partner.
Whether it's possible to forget sponsoring a previous partner is not up for debate. Please limit comments to information about what the OP can do in his current situation.
