820 based on compelling and compassionate circumstances

We already submitted our 820 and basically turned everything in including the AFP check.

The only things i havent done are the medicals (waiting til they ask), military record (sent for) and the fbi check, which i was going to wait until they ask, but since its taking so long to process ill send that out next week.

My wife already has debilitating conditions that require my care for her and our son.

These conditions were verified in a statutory declaration from her GP - which i included already. The prior conditions are already serious enough by themselves but we may have more bad news, which for the most part may be a slow death sentence.

she recently had new issues arise in feb 2015 which are life threatening themselves (listed in the statutory declaration). Now, this week we have news she may have another issue which if she manages to escape the said issues above, now put her life expectancy around 40-45 - shes 35 now.

Is there a way to just have our application based on compelling and compassionate circumstances, just to rid ourselves of this needless stress.

I really dont feel like dealing with this application anymore, its imperative to our family, but its not important in my mind if that makes sense. Id talk to a migration agent but we cant afford ones services.

So what do you all think.

All you can do is try.

I have only remembered seeing one go through and they were offshore and they needed to get back to Australia for cancer treatment.

All I know is DIBP only does it in limited circumstances but you may as well give it a go.

Sorry about your wife.

thanks for your reply.

do you know how i would go about doing this? Is there a protocol i need to follow and specific forms that i would need to fill out?

Getting medical evidence and letters from her GP and all her specialists wont be an issue.

yeah cancer sucks, she went through that in early 2012. Even though the treatment was a success and it should have been all smiles, it was still a terrible time - we lost a pregnancy due to her treatment

I'm so sorry to hear about your wife, SMC.

No, there are no specific forms or protocol I know of as they generally don't expedite processing except in very exceptional circumstances. I agree it's worth trying, though. I would make sure you've uploaded all the evidence you want, and add a letter called "Request for urgent expedited processing" or something like that. Then I would call them and explain the situation and ask what you need to do to have your case considered for expedited processing. If you don't get a good answer, ask for a manager. If you STILL don't get a good answer, try emailing the temporary partner processing team (PM me if this happens and I'll give you the email address). Hopefully you can get SOMEONE to listen.
