Well I found out I overstayed during my initial consultation with my immigration lawyer. She talked me through the various possible outcomes etc. My then fiancee was with me at the time and we were told we may be forced to go offshore etc. I had been in a major accident, I was hit by a car and almost lost my left leg along with some internal organs etc. Was out of commission for about 13 months which was considered sufficient to fulfill schedule 3 requirements and thus my visa application was approved. I had contact with my immigration lawyer daily and as you can see had good advice from experts from the start. I can't more strongly recommend you get professional advice!!!

Very true, in fact my not knowing was a large part of the schedule 3. My employer who had mislodged my 457 paperwork and subsequent MRT had to write a stat Dec to that effect and show correspondence between us where she bad told me several times I had been granted a bridging visa A and would hear about the MRT in 15months approx. Although I can relate to your situation we have very different cases. You appear to have known you were unlawfully overstaying your visa and were very lucky not to have been caught by DIBP. Please find an immigration lawyer and you stand a much better chance of getting the result you want. Best of luck!

If u don't get professional help u will 100% be denied. Pregnancy alone is definitely not enough to get u the visa. Your first agent sounds incompetent and I would urge u to consult with one if the agents here before u to anything else
