They just refused our de facto visa because we didn’t believe our relationship. Our references made it sound more like dating than living together. We filed October 2017 but living together since September 2016 I was on visiting from March 2016 to October 2017 had to leave Australia back to Canada every 3 months. They refused anymore visiting visa because of de facto relationship. We paid iver $7000.00 fee received the email in October 2018 saying visa was being processed year waiting so thought we were finally getting somewhere.

Yes applied offshore in immiAccount for de facto partner so it showed (300,309/100,820/801)
We thought doing on own would work. We had registered to get married while I was in Australia but needed celebrant and once found waiting period then my visitor visa expired so had to leave Australia.
Our home is in the outback so any agency or office was 8 hours away and Brisbane is 14 hours away. We tried contacting while on phone to immigration ask questions but on hold finally after numerous tries, then an hour later when finally got threw was told to yes leave Australia apply from Canada for another visitor visa then come back and we should get visa from Australia. Life happened my partner had a heart attack and by time he was recuperating I had to leave Australia again.
We realize now we made mistakes not understanding the rules or what we needed to do. Yes we recommend using an agency doing it on your own very hard understanding and communication with anyone.
My Australian partner is now appealing something about merits review to AAT within 70 days.
