[quote=nelsonserrao;180097]Hi everyone,
Just wanted to say a big thankyou to everyone on this forum. My wife and I just got the good news that her Partner Temporary Visa (subclass 820) has been granted. We can now leave the country and go on our long awaited first international trip. For the benefit of others, we lodged our application in August last year and its taken a little over a year to process. There was 10 months of delay from RCMP in providing a police clearance certificate so am not sure if that caused any delay in processing. We now are eagerly looking forward to the next stage - permanent visa (subclass 801) which should happen
I have a similar situation with my sister? Did your partner get a positive response from the MRT?

Hi Sarah,
The outcome of the last remaining relative visa from the MRT wasn't positive. Fortunately, by then my partner and I had met and were planning to get married soon. When we got the decision from MRT, we fast tracked our wedding and I applied for the partner visa. If you can provide more details on what situation you are in, am happy to share my findings from the research I did back then. There are other people on this forum too that are of great help who am sure would contribute.

Hi,
My sister has been living here for the last 5 yrs. she and her spouse are working full time. My family including my mom and another sibling are all Australian citizens and pr.. So Are the entire family of my sister's spouse.. The only issue is my estranged father who has been gone for more than 30 yrs since we were kids. My mom was divorced with sole custody of the kids. No contact with him since then.. He should be in his late 70s if still around. LRR decision came back in a few weeks which I found strange since waiting times are supposed to be in years.. Next step is MRT.. But I'm not getting any good feed back on these MRT sections as well. I find it really strange that someone who has been missing for 3 decades and had no say in our lives can come back to haunt us even now. Does not make any sense. Mom was sponsored as a sole parent as well when she came to Australia . Even then no questions were asked and we always mentioned in all forms that she was divorced and his whereabouts unknown. So on what basis are they rejecting. We told the truth. As far as we know my sister is the LRR. So appreciate if you can send me any points / details. I even plan on hiring a lawyer if that can help.

You didn't say where you were from... many governments (including the US) maintain a database of death certificates, and you can usually get a copy if you are family. You may want to try to see if he's deceased. If he were, obviously that would make it easier. Otherwise, I unfortunately don't know enough to be able to help you - you may want to contact a MARA-registered migration agent to see if you have a chance or if you'd be wasting your time with MRT.

Hi Sarah,
We were in the same boat as you are and found it ridiculous that someone who has not been in touch for so long and provided no financial/emotional support was the cause of my wife's application being rejected but such is the system in place. CollegeGirl has made a very good suggestion. If you are able to prove that your bio-logical father is deceased then you probably stand a very good chance. Am no immigration law expert and hence would suggest you seek expert advice from a MARA agent. Happy to pass on the details of someone I used in Melbourne and Sydney if you like. The way that the MRT look at it is that once they have granted your sister's visa, there is a possibility that your father may come along and apply for the last remaining relative visa. I know you may think that this is ridiculous but they are probably basing their decision based on experiences that have burned them in the past.

Hi Nelson,
Thanks for the feedback. It does seem ridiculous. CAn you send me the information re MARA agent in Melbourne. And I would not even know where to start to find out if he is alive or dead.

I would start with Mark Northam on this forum - he's not in Melbourne, but he helps people all over the world. He's great. His website is mnvisa.com

thanks a lot. have applid for an mrt appeal. so how long does it take before they call us in to court ? I have also hired a lawyer to try and trace my missing dad. if he is deceased willit be too late now to submit a death certificate? if he is then my sister will be the LRR with no unknown factor anymore. can the judge then rule in her favour I wish I hired a lawyer before . notnsure how long it will take to find out. although legally if you haven't heard from someone in 7 years they are pronounced civil dead in the legal system.any idea what visa I can apply for my sister till then? what otions are there?
