My partner is on a 801 visa but there has been a change in the relationship and I now want to withdraw my sponsorship of her visa.
How can i do this ?

You can't. Once they are on a 801 visa they are here forever regardless of it the relationship breaks down or not.

Oh sorry, i meant the 801 visa application is still being assessed, she was granted a 820 but it's been 2 years since the original application for the 820/801

You can send them a letter to the permanent partner processing centre in Melbourne. I would also email them to be on the safe side too.

I found this for the 100 about the information you need to include but you can include the same information for the 801: https://www.border.gov.au/visas/supporting/Pages/partner/withdrawing-your-sponsorship.aspx

I just want to say it is nice to see someone doing the right thing and withdrawing sponsorship when the relationship is over. We see a lot on this forum that don't withdraw the sponsorship when the relationship is over.

Thanks for your reply, i was getting confused, as i thought I read some where i can't withdraw my sponsorship after two years have past . So I was just thinking of sending off the letter regarding the status of the relationship.
It was unfortunate, but it seems she had other things in mind , besides staying with me .

You can withdraw the sponsorship any time until the 801 is granted. Unfortunately not every knows this and some people leave their sponsor after they apply for the 801.

I am so sorry it didn't work out for you :(
