What to do?

Hey Guys,

I have got a massive problem, So my wife had a phoneinterview back last week- and since we had a fight about the same thing back last year around OCT- you know couple fights- and she was extremely upset with me, she told the immigration we broke up and we don't live together anymore since OCT and we do talk but we haven't seen each other.
My 801 was due from last 7 months- that one phone call stuffed up, because of our fights.
However I have confronted her since i got the email from Immi that I have to respond within 28 days-
I have spoken to my misses, we have patched things up back again- this is what Couples do- She just went overboard! argh- And realized what mistake she did!
Now what are our options?

I have written a letter stating she was not giving the right information because of our fight and our relationship is still genuine and continuing, we have future plans, trips booked and she did live with me even after october!

She is writing the same thing as well stating that she was under stress emotionally not stable and she said all those things- and lied about it- since she didnt mean those things that was just because of fight in oct and the same fight we had during this month- so she was fed up.
With this- I will show our bank accounts- credit card statements once again- hotel booking confirmation, curise ticket for next month,.
What else can we do? And what are our chances?

Thanks

Taurus, I thought your question might get more responses as its own thread, so I've moved it to a new thread for you.

I think you're in a tough position, honestly. I imagine Immi is going to probably suspect she gave them correct information at the time and you're both just trying to make things look better now that you're together again. I'm not sure what you can do - maybe provide all the evidence you have that you were/are still living together and any new evidence you have that your relationship is in fact genuine and continuing.

I can understand Immigration- that's why I need to provide them enough documents once again- Movie tickets- Income protection- bank statements, electricity bill, A letter from my side stating that we are in a relationship- and loving-, and same from her side stating that she was fed up and because of new job stress everything she lied, because she was tried,however upturns and downturns of relationship makes us stronger and we do live together, we do have income protection, life protection, 100% beneficary what else, This is so annoying

Honestly I can't imagine calling and saying the relationship is over due to an argument. I would only make that call if we had separated. I think immigration is going to think the same thing.

If she really did make that call and you hadn't moved out, I would say you need some stat decs and stuff from neighbours, family and friends attesting to the same.

This is a tough one especially since there was a phone interview too.

I agree with CG and imagine that they would take what was said at the phone interview.

I would be providing as much information as you can. Don't forget to include this years tax return where you declare each other as spouses.

If it gets rejected you can lodge an appeal with MRT.

If the relationship is genuine and ongoing, you want to pull out all stops to prove it.

I have had a situation where a couple split up and terrible things, including all sort of accusations, were said to Immigration by the sponsor and one of her sisters.

It was that bad that the applicant was being investigated by the Integrity Unit.

However, they reconciled and we did get him PR in the end...

It seems to happen a lot. The sponsor has this power over his/her partner and in the heat of the moment some people will use that power to denounce their partner. It's another reason why partner visa applications can be so stressful. Not everybody can cope with this power imbalance.

Thanks for helping me guys,
Yes relationship is Genuine- what we did- is we wrote a separate letter both of us.
She mentioned- she was unable to give the correct information over the phone, is also because we had an argument in oct 2014 that, unfortunately, became the topic of discussion again in July 2015 about two weeks prior to the phone interview that my partner has recently had. Nonetheless, our relationship was and is still ongoing. . The ups and downs of the relationship, along with the banality of our argument, should not have been a hurdle in the processing of the visa, however, my partner confirmed that she was carried away by emotions at that specific time and, therefore, made statements that she had no intention to make.


We both wrote a around 2 pages worth of data- that Yes we were living together, we did have a fight in Oct- however we never ended our relationship, since we submitted our documents willingly signed in November-and went to trips in melb ( hotel confirmation).

On top of this I have also attached copies of our Bank Statements- They are quite a lot- And not sure how to put that on Email? I guess attachments,
-gifts exchanged such as watches- adrenalin-Movie tickets we collected those even after submitting docs-footy ticket-
For future- we have confirmation from our banks- stating we reside same place-joint accounts- Supper annuation 100%- Life and Income protection insurance policy-Tickets for Sporting even around August this year,Cruise confirmation Lunch, Hotel Booked again for Melbourne-, Electricity bill, Phone Bill, Envelopes, 3-4 photos of us.

Does anyone what else can I include? Or how does my case look She was so stupid to say everything out of in anger and crying on the phone off course emotions played a big part. And if we do send an email- how long usually they do take to accept or even decline? as I know if they do decline they will give me 21 days to appeal-
I am also including on paper- that if it helps I will come on face to face interview- or even a phone call again to explain once again.

Sorry for the long letter-

I'd speak with a migration agent. DIBP is giving a lot more scrutiny to the 801 stage than they used to, and this is your chance to get your documentation all in order to patch up any damage your partner has done.

Authorised representative of both your tax affairs. Have you lodged 2015 tax return? If so the page that says you have a spouse.

As Maggie said speak with an agent. Some countries are under higher scrutiny than others unfortunately.
