Hi Wanderer & everyone else,

Thankyou SO much for all the advice given here. It has been so helpful! I am just about to submit my 309/100 partner visa application at long last.

My wife (sponsor) is not working and is on a Centrelink pension. Whereas I am working and have savings from that. So my question is, can case officers make a common-sense decision that the applicant would be ok even if he lost the sponsor's support?

Or must they follow the rules and so we have to convince them of the sponsor's means? I have no problem with giving the cash to my wife (I trust her completely ;-), if it helps the application, we'll do it. It seems silly though.

What do you think?
Thanks in advance.

I would expect that they will take into account the full employment/financial/accommodation situation of a couple though not working for Immi nor a CO, that is just a view based on having seen couples who have both been abroad not requiring an Assurer.
