It is probably the number of attachments you have. Unless they have changed it again it was 60 per applicant. How many files have you attached on your application?

Also just remember ... it is not the number of files you attach it is the quality of the files. As in, someone may attach 60 documents that may not be good evidence and another person may have only 20 attachments which is really good evidence.

And when Mish says 60 per applicant... it's 30 on the applicant's application,and 30 on the sponsor's.

Considering that ampk just (beyond kindly) offered to cover the cost of a consult with Mark Northam for you, I would seriously call Mark ASAP.

Yes only good thing about kids now being extra is the amount of documents we can attach. I have not seen any place the time restriction to upload only you can continue until application finalized.

The offer still stands call Mark please.

It doesn't matter if your husband and in laws are against it - they are not knowledgeable in immigration law, and crossing your fingers and hoping for the best isn't a good strategy when it comes to immigration.

Speak to Mark - have him going over your evidence. What you have in there right now isn't enough and adding a few more form 888's also wont make it enough. You need more concrete evidence. Mark will be able to tell you this and tell you whether it's too late and you need to withdraw.

If you get refused you will have to go back home and apply offshore. You will have a hard time getting ANY kind of visa to let you back into Australia to wait out the processing time as you are doing now because you have had a visa refused.

IMMI can't give you a timing on how long you have to upload evidence. Different processing centres would have different time limits so they cant put a blanket time on it. But they do make it fairly clear that most of it has to pre date your application date.

Please please speak to Mark. Here are his details:

Don't panic. Generally if the relationship is genuine (and you know this yourself)... it will generally be approved from that aspect. Especially if it's obvious you've both made sacrifices to be together. If you've both travelled a lot, it's probably about checking security clearances rather than anything else. This can take a year. Just be thankful you are together, got a tourist visa (many don't!) and relax (i know easier said than done)... and give it time.

There has been more than one couple in a genuine relationship who has had a partner visa denied on this forum, mcru. I wish it were that easy, but it is not.

As CG says, sadly that is not the case. If anything, from what I have seen on forums over the past 6 months they are clamping down on partner visa applications to fight fraud.

The easiest solution right now is to have a MARA agent to go over the application. Won't take long and won't cost a great deal (especially when a very kind forum member has offered to help).

My husband says I should stay away from the forum because some of your stories break my heart and others fill me up with fear. But so far I’ve had nothing but help from your advice and good will. I thank you for that. Infinitely…

However the more I read your posts the more convinced I get that our visa will be rejected. The reason for that is pretty straightforward, regardless of how much we love each other and can prove that or not, maybe we haven’t been together for a long time (long enough to satisfy the immi. criteria). Here are the facts:

- Met in October 2013 in Moscow (*we both had jobs in Moscow back then and we both hated it)
- Started officially dating end 2013/beginning 2014
- Got engaged March 2014
- Moved in together April 2014
- Decided to move together to Bali (*start a new life there spring 2014), and have the wedding in Bali, August 2014
- I am Macedonian, so I left Russia, and went to Macedonia, my husband went straight to Bali and tried to get us settled in while I had to apply for Indonesian multi-year visa and had my Indonesian visa approved in August 2014. We had to be separated for a month and a half.
- During the summer, my husband’s and my (*not) working conditions in Bali didn’t meet our expectation at all and we decided that Australia would be the best place for us to start a family and live a normal life.
-We lodged our ONLINE application 10.09.2014 and so far haven’t heard anything. (of course*)
- We lived married life only after lodging the application (309/100) basically, while we were in Bali. That means we have been married for 11 days only! on the date we lodged the visa application!
- In the meantime I got a visitor visa approved for a 1 year period.
- Before Christmas 2014, my husband got a job in Australia, he quit his job in Bali &
….-here we are in Australia, with him working and me doing an observership as a medical officer, while we have to live with his parents (*which is actually quite great) (*because we have to save for unexpected costs such as plane tickets and application fees and all sorts of migration related things and also I love my in-laws a lot!).

I have left my career in Moscow as a doctor, to start a family with my now husband and to just live a normal life in a normal (and beautiful) country like Australia, but I think it will be all have been done in vain, because at the end of the day what the immi need is the facts above and no excuses.

Objectively, do you guys think I have a shot, or did we make a terrible mistake for applying too early and are we just wasting our time and money (and mental health!)? And should we just go back to Russia where I can go back to being a useful member of society and not a pitiful overseas bride?

So what do YOU reckon? Do I start packing or do I just...wait for another year and more?

PS. If we have read more of this forum before applying, we wouldn't have been even applying, nor would I be writing this post now. Sadly, we didn't read enough. We were in love and not very careful. We did what we thought is right. And there will be a price for that to pay. Having said that, no matter what the outcome of the visa is we are determined to stay together, wherever that has to be...
Dear BREID,

I can understand your concerns. My fiance has to convince me to stay positive all the time as well. The application and waiting times are nerve wrecking.

For the 309/100 partner visa, there are two cases:
1. Couples who are not married (de facto relationship) have to prove that they have been in a genuine relationship for one year before lodging the application.
2. Married couples don't have this one-year relationship criteria as far as I can see from the Partner Migration Booklet. But they still have to prove that they are in a genuine relationship. Therefore, in terms of the outlined criteria, you meet them.

I highly doubt that they can reject you only because you were married for 11 days when you applied for the partner visa. If immigration has a suspicion that you are not in a genuine relationship, they will ask you is to provide more information (I'm not sure how much you uploaded) and/or they will ask you for an interview.

Have you provided documents of when you moved in together in April 2014, flight tickets to Bali, your life together in Bali, photos of you together before and at the wedding, etc.?

I wish you all the best.
