Hi! I am planning to lodge my Partner visa (subclasses 820 and 801) very soon. I am from the Philippines but I am now staying here in Australia, although I am still on Tourist Visa with my daughter. I am married to an Australian citizen got married here last year and I am also currently 33 weeks pregnant. I have few questions that I hope you can help me. First is regarding the question about PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIP. I have never been married nor been in a de facto relationship. I've been a single mother, her biological father is a Filipino. We have no communication with him at all. Legally he has no rights too. On my daughter's Birth Certificate on Father's Name it said UNKNOWN. He was my ex boyfriendx, but we never lived together and relationship lasted for less than 6 months. He never supported her financially at all. Although she met him before on few occasions when she was 1 year old and 3 years old. Since then, we have no contact with him. His name was also not part on any of my daughter or my records with any government or private entity. I also don't actually remember his birthday and when exactly our relationship started and ended. It was 11 to 12 years ago. Question, do I still have to click YES on that part where they asked if I had a previous relationship? Well obviously I had, but the way I understand it is it's asking for previous marriage or death facto relationship. However, I am just a little confused still cause I had a child with him, and my daughter is included in the application, if I say NO to that part will they question me why I answered that knowing I have a child? I am a little confused. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Firstly, does your current visa have a "No Further Stay" condition attached to it?

My understanding is that the relationship/s need to be official in some form, for example other than the obvious - that person be declared on government form such as a tax return or centerlink records as your partner.

Not just a person you dated and fell pregnant to. But I would clearly mention the circumstances in your application.

Hi @ampk Thank you for replying. My visa doesn't have that condition. In fact I originally applied for 3 months single entry but was granted 12 months multiple entry, can study but no work. Regarding my question, will that be okay to include my ex boyfriend's information without his knowledge? I honestly forgot his birthday and will just guess also on the length of relationship start and end I will just have to guess. I don't have any communication with him nor his family or friends at all. Thank you.

I never included any girlfriends in our application/s only my ex wife.

Immi were aware I had a girlfriend before the last application for a Ukrainian, as I had 2 Visitor Visas granted and 1 refused for a Batswana (Botswana citizen)girlfriend over about a 1 year period.

So in your case I would not list them as a "Previous Relationship" but explain you briefly had a "boyfriend" and ended up pregnant but it was not what you consider a relationship to the exclusion of all others.

If we were questioned I was always going to say that I used IMMI information to determine what is a partner and applying the same requirements for a Partner Visa that person would never meet the requirement to have a successful application.

That means the de facto was less than 12 months, not registered - so it can not be possible to get a Partner Visa.

Migrating Child Onshore Partner Visa 820

Hi! I am filing Onshore Partner Visa 820, my child as my dependent is migrating with me. Although we are both already here in Australia on a tourist visa, with my Aussie husband. My child's biological father is a Filipino but he has no legal or custodial rights on her. He never supported her and we have no communication with him for several years. We were never married nor lived together. He was out of the picture the moment my child was born. On my daughters Birth Certificate under Father's Name it says UNKNOWN. My question is, do I have to still follow this:
Attach a certified copy of the court order giving you the sole legal right to determine where the child shall live or the right to remove the child from the country

I never had a court order cause the father was never been in the picture at all. I have a solo parent card issued from Philippines before and my daughter's birthday certificate. Will that be enough? Thank you in advance.
