Wondering whether to report my friend

Hi everyone, I am Australian but have many international friends who have gone through Partner Visas and understand the hard work and heartbreak that can sometimes come along with them. I recently became aware that a coworker who is married and on a temporary permanency visa is no longer with her husband and doesn't live with him anymore. It's hard not to be aware actually as she is posting all over Facebook about her new housemates, and talks about it openly at work and with friends. She does not want to get back together and isn't even trying to look like they still are. I'm not sure when her permanent residency will be granted, it could be a while. It makes me angry that she could still be granted permanent residency despite not reporting any relationship breakdown to DIAC, while legitimate couples are being denied their visas. I am wondering if I should anonymously report her for migration fraud on the border protection website ? Or is this going too overboard? Thanks for any advice!

Other people might have a different opinion than me but I think you should report her to DIBP so that they can investigate.

The visa she has is so she can be in Australia with her husband if she isn't with him she doesn't meet the criteria. People like this make me angry because they are taking up an extra visa which can be given to a genuine person and also it makes is harder for all of us evidence wise.

I say do it!!

Have to agree with Mish. There are so many of us doing the right thing, in genuine relationships and waiting for extraordinary lengths of time for permanent residency because there are people like this clogging up the system. An anonymous call to DIBP would be in order in this matter.

Report! Also if it's at all a reassurance - the evidence required for the PR stage of the partner visa now requires almost as much evidence as the first stage and by the sounds of it she has zero chance of providing the proof immigration requires for PR to be granted

Has she reported any reasons for the relationship breakdown. If there was family violence involved it will affect both the overseas and Australian partner. I think that a person needs to investigate all the facts before making a decision.

One thing thought, if she hasn't notified the Department of her change in status she comes under the Section 109 visa cancellation laws.

Wouldn't the Australian partner already have notified the department anyway if she's moved out

Report please. Make sure you give the exact details of her, her partner, her personal details and address she was living before with her Sponsor.

They gave us hard time by consuming spaces of geniune partners and complication all the process for us.

Dont hesitate
