I talked to immigration about this issue. If the sponsor had bad credit then yes it can be an issue but not so for the applicant unless you are applying for a business visa.

I had to go bankrupt because of a previous partner some years ago racked up a big debt in my name. My current husband helped me get it all sorted out because we were worried about the same issues and I declared bankruptcy a couple of years ago.

I would suggest you look at doing the same and starting again.

I thought only owing money to government or financial institutions was an issue with sponsorship? Or does Australian credit rating only include those things? Sorry about the weird question but I'd never read that before :-S

I was referring directly to my question to immigration about whether bankruptcy would be a problem. They told me that it could be an issue if it was the sponsor who was bankrupt, but not the applicant unless they were applying for a business visa. Yeah I have read the same thing about owing the Australian government money would be an issue.

Ahh ok :-) just checking to be sure.

Sorry to hear what happened to you, but glad to hear you have someone helping you by your side! I used to work at a bank and was absolutely shocked by how often I spoke to people who were carrying an ex's debt. They were severly burdened so hope you are coming back up to where you belong :-)
