Need advice for my Partner Visa

Hi everyone!

Me and my partner are writing the letter to explain our relationship and a bit of story of it. My partner had a previous relationship with an New Zealand girl. They had a baby and then she cheated on him and she left the country with his daughter. He decided to not have anymore kid and to not trust anyone else after that but then he changed his mind staying with me and after 4 months of trying we are now expecting a baby.

I am wondering if include this bit of his past will look good for our relationship... I don't know if you understand what I mean... like that our relationship is really strong and we are very committed to each other despite his past. Do you know what I mean??

Thanks a lot in advance for your advice and if you have any other suggestions just go for it!!

what was his relationship with his ex? Married? De facto? Have they resolved their relationship already?

You mentioned "after 4 months of trying", so your relationship with him is only four months?

Because there is a child involve, I don't think you can completely exclude his previous relationship in your application.

I think you need to do more research about partner visa. It seems like you don't a very long relationship and might not have sufficient evidence to support your application.

The relationship history is about your relationship history they don't care about the relationship your partner had with his ex.

Edit: just saw that you are the applicant not him. Remember you need to disclose any relationship or children information that the forms ask for.

Also did he sponsor his ex partner?

No I didn't explain it enough then. We will be together one year the 7th of March so I do know about Partner Visa. His daughter is Australian anyway so she doesn't need to be involve in the visa and neither my baby needs to.
I do have evidences from trips together to joint bank accounts etc...

He was living with his ex girlfriend they weren't married.

No. His ex partner was from New Zealand and his daughter his Australian.

From memory as a sponsor they need to disclose children from previous relationships.

The de facto relationship will also need to be declared in the area that asks about previous relationships.

I would obviously declare the relationship (he will need to on his sponsorship form). But I wouldn't be talking about it as a positive to show you have a strong relationship - in your "history of relationship" statement. In fact I probably wouldn't mention it at all, unless you both look after his daughter on any occasion she comes to Australia.

If he has no contact with the child I wouldn't be saying "his partner cheated on him and moved to NZ with the child and he hasn't trusted anyone until I came along and so we became pregnant 4 months into the relationship".

Just stick to describing how your relationship developed

In my option anyway!

Definitely not bad mouthing your ex, just like you don't bad mouth your ex company / ex boss in front of your current boss, it might come back and bite you one day.

Hello,

Children needs to be declared whether they're Australian or not, it's part of his personal circumstances. As well as his previous relationship(on his sponsorship form it asked name of previous relationship, date and how it ended, you can just write "separated"). That's what I wrote in my previous application I don't need to go into details. The more you say the more it causes problem.
