Hello everyone. I've just joined this forum and I'm interested to find out about having my partner/husband-to-be immigrate to Australia. I'm currently waiting on a fiance visa for me to go to the US to marry him and live there, but we would ideally like to return here in the next year or two.

I've read through the spousal visa information from the Australian immigration website, and I'm concerned/unclear about the financial and work requirements. They say that the sponsor needs to show they have an income and are able to support the immigrating partner - however in my case I haven't worked for some years. I contacted the immigration department to ask if my parents could put up some kind of monetary bond/assurance, and the person I spoke to couldn't tell me for sure - he just said I'd have to start the process and then see! Does anyone have some advice for me as to how this part of it works, or where I can read up more on the requirements that would be expected of me as the sponsor?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Ellie.

They used to have an Assurance of Support but they removed that recently where your parents could do that. You may be able to name them as the direct sponsor as it is usual for the sponsor to be the spouse but not necessarily so perhaps but I am not sure on that and you should ask immigration or a good migration agent. The only other thing is to get a statutory declaration from your parents that they will cover the support if you sponsor him.

I looked at the same problem in reverse for if my husband was to migrate to the USA, he owns his house and has plenty of money but if he wants to come to the USA I am supposed to sponsor him, he can't sponsor himself as such however they can take his assets into account, I don't know if there is some provision in Australia to do the same if your husband can sponsor himself, again you would need to talk to immigration.

Good luck with it all
