Post Partner visa - URGENT PLEASE HELP

Hello everyone,

I am an international student on student visa. I am marrying an Australian on 21st of June, 2013. How soon should we apply for partner visa after the marriage ?

We are facing some financial problems due to unexpected circumstances and we doubt coming up with my student fees is our biggest concern.

Will get deported if I don't pay my next sem fees as that is violating student visa rules ?

And meanwhile when my partner visa is on process and if my student visa gets automatically cancelled (if we don't come up with fees) on what basis can I stay here ? We don't want to be apart.

PLEASE HELP!!!!

Thanks,
Jan

Hi Jan, i'm not personally not knowledgable enough to offer advice on going from a student visa to a temporary visa but I may be able to offer some information about the partner visa.

You mention financial problems, you're looking at $4000aud approx worth of fees for the spouse visa.

Apart from marriage certificate, do you have all other relevant information to support your application such as identity documents & 12 months proof of relationship? If youcan get it all together pretty quickly then just wait for your marriage certificate on the 21st you coukd apply by the end of the month. Front load it with your medical and police check (which can take some time so apply now) and depending on where you apply you might get a response pretty quickly. Applucations lodged in person at Perthand Brisbane seem to be getting approved in a matter of weeks.

When would you be expecting your student visa to be cancelled?

Thanks for the reply Kmarees

My fees is 12 grand per semester. Instead of that, it would be easy for us to go for partner visa and study part-time which we will be able to afford. My student visa may be affected next feb, 2014. We live on the coast, so we can hand over the application in person at Brisbane office.

We haven't lived 12 months together .. We only know each other for 6 months and we are getting married in my home after couple of months. Is 12 months de facto mandatory even if we are married ? Please let me know.

Thanks,
Jan

Jan,

I'm pretty much in the same situation with you at the moment, my partner she's an International Student as well, her visa will be expiring on 28th August this year, we're now in the process of applying De Facto Visa, so I guess, you'd better be hurry in lodging the Relationship registration certificate with BDM, it takes 28 business days cooling off period for the certificate to be issued, this is one of the prerequisite of the Partner Visa application.

Also Jan check the sticky called "Which Partner Visa" on the forum. It has loads of info on the onshore partner visa and mentions being eligible for a bridging visa.
