Cancelled De Facto Visa, but where will I go?

I had been with my partner for over 4 years now, we decided the relationship wasn't working so we broke up.

I already had my Subclass 820 Visa and was awaiting eligibility for the 801 (the second stage of permanent residency application).

My question is, I have a complicated situation. I was born and raised in Singapore then Malaysia, when I was 18 I came over to Australia and been here for 9 years. My parents still made me hav my German Passport so I don't have any citizenship or residency in Singapore/Malaysia.

My father and mother could stay because my dad had his own factory there. In the last 2 years, both my mum and my dad passed away from different kinds of cancer, and the factory is now owned by my sister's husband.

My sister can legally stay in Malaysia since her husband owns and works at the company.

I have never in my life lived in Germany and don't have any close family, the only people there are my aunts who I hadn't spoken to in 10 years.

I'm not sure how I'm supposed to go back to Germany when I barely have enough money or a place to stay, do I become the responsibility of my aunt no matter what?

It's a complicated situation, and even my work in Australia don't want to see me go and are trying to find out a way for me to stay legally...

What work do you do?

Unfortunately it your not DIBP's responsibility to where you go when you don't have a visa for Australia, that is something you need to work out for yourself if you can't find an alternative visa for Australia.

But I did plan on having a future here with my partner! I've been here for 9 years, have friends and am loved in my community, never done an illegal thing whatsoever, isn't there someone I can write to?

I can't even speak German properly anymore, have no family in contact in Germany. Where will I go and stay? I'm at a loss!

Unfortunately you need to qualify for a visa in order to stay. If you have been here for 9 years surely you have a skill and can apply for a skilled visa?

I have done a bachelor of Digital Media, I had done two internships and was trying to get a job but my portfolio was never good enough and the skills I learnt were even criticized for not being specific for graphic design...I thought it would help me prepare for graphic design, but the course was so mixed up (one semester out of the 4 years covered photoshop, and that was as graphic design as it went).

I thought that my relationship with my de Facto was serious, we were even planning on moving down to this parents in the country, I planned on saving up money to do a vet nursing course this year, but then this blow hit us, and courses have already started so I have no way out except for one.

You could wait for the visa to be refused, then appeal, then go the Minister. I'd only do that though if valid grounds for Ministerial Intervention exist. Get some professional advice and do it soon.

I'd suggest you speak with a migration agent to see if there are any options for you to stay, but unfortunately you may be forced to leave. I assume you're an adult so you're not your aunt's responsibility. If your sister is living in Malaysia, do you have an option to migrate there?

I know it's not a helpful comment as you want to stay in Australia, but if you're a German citizen you have full work and residency rights across the EU. If it came down to it, there might be a better option than Germany - maybe the UK or Ireland where not speaking German wouldn't be a problem?
