Hi everybody, I've been searching this forum but couldn't find any similar story to get help...
I've been living in Australia for many years and I'm an Australian Citizen now. I was granted a Permanent Residency through a Spouse Visa as I was married to my ex-husband who is Australian.
Unfortunately after 3 years together we separated and divorced.
I'm now married to another person, who is not Australian and is currently on a student visa.
We are thinking of applying for a Spouse Visa, but I'm not sure if I can sponsor him as I have been previously sponsored.
We've spoken to an Immigration lawyer and he mentioned that I'd have to wait for 5 years counting from the 1st application I've made, which was for a Prospective Marriage in 2006.
I'm a bit confused if the 5 years gap would start from the application or from when I was granted a Permanent Visa in the past...

Could anybody help me? If you need more details, please let me know...

Thank you and looking forward to getting your responses!

Hello,
Five years starts from the application, the date when you lodged your prospective marriage visa, month and year..
