Do we get a refund?

Me and my partner have applied for a partner visa onshore and I am currently on a bridging visa A (or bridging visa B for a month).
We applied for the visa a month ago, and due to changing circumstances we are thinking about withdrawing our application and wondering if we get our money back? Being back home has made me torn about actually living in Australia for the rest of my life even though I really love my boyfriend.

Cheers for helping out.

As Mish said, No refunds. They do state in the application forms and the confirmation letter that no refunds are given, I'm pretty sure it's also in the FAQ section of the website.

If you want a refund you have to die to get it - or have lodged an invalid or unnecessary application.
