Please help. Reg. Pmv
 
Long story short my fiancÚ and I applied for the PMV in September 2012. We have received contact from our case officer recently as she requires additional documentation. My fiancÚ and i were in the process of obtaining the documents and we were going to get married and then change the PMV to a Partner Visa. Unfortunately my fiancÚ and I have gone through a complication between our relationship. We are not having a breakdown or terminating the relationship we just basically need more time.

I don't know what to do because I don't know how much time we need and obviously the embassy or my case officer is not going to wait forever for us to finalise our documentation. I'm concerned about withdrawing my application because I know for a fact we are going to get married, I'm just not exactly sure when know. We have some personal issues that we want to resolve because we want to make sure that we do get to have that perfect life together that we dream of. For this reason I don't know if this is resolved in a month or a year or longer. I got no idea and I don't know what to do or if its possible to put my visa application on hold or something.


Please help me make a decision that isn't going to hinder the chance of me being with my fiancÚ.

Oh my you are in a pickle aren't you, firstly you say you will get married so why not apply for the visa, it will take months for a decision to come through which gives you allot of time, plus after your visa is granted if your still together ( hopefully as its not a definite) you will have to travel to Australia and marry within 9 months, which gives you more time to decide, lets say all in all you have another 15 months, I think by then you would know, if it doesn't work out then that's the chance you took if it does then you marry and live happily ever after. Sorry if this seems a little short shotted but you either have to say no we don't apply, waste all the money and in a few months say I wish I had applied or take the chance and hopefully you and your partner will work things out.

Good luck

Hey

Thank you for your response. That has definitely helped me make a decision. If I continue to go through the PMV as originally planned and await the decision of the embassy. Worst case scenario what happens if we are denied? Do you know when we would be able to re-apply? If we re-applied can it be for the same visa?

Louise, that advice was great.

Lipsmacking, I really wouldn't worry too much about being denied if you can provide everything your CO is asking for. Is there a reason you're worried?

I'd comment on the rest of your questions, but I simply don't know the answers on these. I'm pretty sure you can reapply for the same visa, and I haven't heard about any kind of waiting to do that, but I'm not sure how just having had that visa refused would affect your case.

If you were refused the visa by the DIAC they would give the reasons and you could appeal the decision if there was reason to do so, if they refused you your visa for something silly like not providing them with enough information then yes you can re apply once all the information was gathered but you would have to pay again, if you decide NOT to go ahead with the application you would loose all the monies you have spent and re apply for the same visa when the time was right for you and your partner, but as I said the time it takes for the decision to come through and the time you have before you have to marry is near enough 18 months, I would still continue with your application and let things take there course.
Good luck

I'm worried because I guess in my mind you can never have too much evidence or too much information. When I have seen other people and what they send in their application I double question myself as to whether or not I sent in enough evidence. Then I hear that you can also send in too much documents. As everyone else I hate waiting. We were previously denied on a tourist visa (I know it's two completely different visas) due to insufficient funds. For this reason we would be heart broken if we were denied on this visa.

Thank you. Yer I just stress so much about all these documents and making sure it's completed. Visa applications are just too much on every aspect of every level. I know it's worth the wait in the end but in the mean time I'm losing my mind. I'm going to continue with the visa as planned and continue to hope for the best.

I found that most people tend to over send documentation, I took each form and made a list of each document they required and one by one I gathered the information and sent it off to them, I didn't over send but if they asked for photos ( which they did) I sent plenty of them showing different occasions especially work parties and xmas get together,s ect. Don't complicate things just send what they ask for, if they need more let them ask for it. Also don't forget to fill out the form 80 9/10 they will require it even though it says you don't need it.
If you need anymore advice or help just shout we all here to help you
Thanks CG for your remark it was warmly accepted.

Did I understand correctly from your post that your relationship is definitely not going to end, but you are just not sure about when you'll get married? So marriage is the issue, not the relationship?
