Centrelink payment (De facto)

Hi Everyone

Hear is my situation, I just got PR 801(De facto partner visa) so I would like to register centrelink but there is a problem, my girl friend didn't tell centrelink, she got partner.
Actually few years ago when she were applying centrelink payment ,she wrote my name as partner on Rent Certificate but her payment had been stop because centrelink want to know my datails and income etc.
But at that time, I was on working holiday visa and I didn't work so there was no income so she told to centrelink "he doesn't have income" but they asked her to provide my country's previous and current income details and bank statment.
I couldn't provide it. So her youth connection worker helped her to solved problem as talk to centrelink and write a letter. So she wrote on her Rent Certificate me as "FRIEND".

So what could be happen if I apply centrelink payment?
I searched on google It says "she possibly prosecution or rasie debt " Is that mean there is possibility for she may go jail???
What is worst case scenario? Is that truth this may cause to go jail?

Thank you so much for reading.
I really appreciate if you write some comments.

The worst thing that your visa will be canceled as your partner false report ur relationship.i suggest u to see a migrant agent or lawyer make things right before government looks into ur case.

I didn't think you could be eligible for centrelink for at least two years after receiving PR.

Centrelink may report it to DIBP as concerns for not being in a genuine relationship.

Also your partner will be looked at by Centrelink and all her previous income will be looked at and adjusted and she will be required to repay Centrelink any overpayments.

Jail is actually very unlikely. But repayment of centerlink overpayments is a sure thing.

The fact that you deliberaty lied by saying friend and not partner gives them reason to go hard without leniency to you.

Centerlink do work very closely with Immigration, so you do have a lot to worry about.

I'm actually quite curious how you were able to get a defacto visa if your girlfriend was on centrelink and didn't tell the appropriate govt bodies about you?

Well, centrelink will calculate ALL the overpayment and put you into collections by slowly taking it away from future payments.

I registered my relationship with centrelink, my husband centrelink payments went from SINGLE to PARTNERED = less amount. I worked for 2 months and did not know I had to claim my wages. When I did they back calculated and put us into collections for over payment. You HAVE to repay. They WILL find out sooner or later and may add on penalties. Mine did not have any since it was only 2 months of mistake.

I am amazed you were able to get the PR 801 as well. Maybe the OP skipped that step and just married/registered with state.

That would not fix the over payment issue. Centrelink will find out. They even knew when we went overseas for 6 weeks. They cut payment to my partner exactly after 30 days. How did they know? No idea!!
