Smile Partner Visa (subclass 309)

G'day all,

I was deported this march due to visa breach of my student visa subclass 573,arrived Melbourne in june 2014,the visa was gonna expire in august of this year but they cancelled it in feb which I wasn't aware about.
However,I was and still in a relationship,We were thinking of getting married but this came up and shattered our dreams.I wasn't able to lodge a de facto visa as relationship should be 12 months old as per visa requirement but was just 7 months old by then.Couldn't apply a bridging visa cuz the 28 day period already passed and nothing solid was in my hand as I was locked in that detention centre in Broadmeadows,so I voluntarily asked for the removal.

Now there is a 12 months permanent ban and 3 years temporary ban.Can't meet my girlfriend for atleast 12 months but my girlfriend is arranging papers for her and for her kids so that she can come here and we can get married,hopefully.

Well,she is 43 and I am 24 but it's a GENUINE relationship but I am worried what DIBP is gonna do to us.I have a few photos (less than 10) of us from last year and a comprehensive CAR INSURANCE named under both of us and SCREENSHOTS of our FB chats(private as well) and logs and the message that she sent on the dating site where we hit each other up and that is it nothing like a joint bank account,letters,lease papers or utility bills,just one bill which I paid through my card.

We are thinking of applying PARTNER VISA sub.309 just after getting married.I wonder what evidences they're gonna ask for and if they're going go to grant a visa or not, as there is a 19 YEARS of age difference and where she is older than me.And the VISA REFUSAL rate is very HIGH atm.Hope they give the result in our favour after going through that many RED FLAGS.
What evidences should we collect when she will come to visit me.What are the CASE MANAGERS most interested in?And after how long we should appy for that VISA,after getting married.Is it better to hire a registered migration agent to lodge the visa.EIGHTEEN months is a very long time to stay away from your spouse,this is what the duration they say they take to open the file,During that time can I apply for a TOURIST VISA to visit her after end of 1 Year Ban.

On what reasons can they refuse the PARTNER VISA,if there are in my case??Any good migration agents or lawyers anyone knows who can help us by not asking for skyhigh fees?AND CAN WE EVEN APPLY FOR IT CUZ THERE IS A PERMANENT BAN FOR 1 YEAR AND A TEMPORARY BAN FOR 3.
Thanking Everyone ����.

Firstly, what country are you from? The reason I ask is that the case officers do look at culture and in some cultures a huge age gap can be a concern for the case officers.

I don't know about the permanent 1 year ban, but for the 3 year temporary ban that does not apply to partner visa's.

I would highly recommend getting the help of a registered migration agent - I would have no issues recommending any of the 4 registered migration agents that post on this forum.

You need to show evidence of you being a couple, so a big one since you are living apart will be the communication whilst apart. Having a joint bank account or showing how you support each other financially is also good. When she comes if you stay in a hotel/rent flat you should have it in both of your names, make sure you take lots of photos together.

However my recommendation is DO NOT get married!!!! You would be better applying for a PMV (fiance visa) as you do not have alot of evidence and with a PMV less evidence if required. With a 309 you would need joint bills, joint fiances etc and this part is not the easiest when you are living apart.

Yes. India is one country that they are strict on and in some cases they interview the applicants parents and their neighbours.

Yeah,I was wondering that they are very stirict,me parents are cool with that but is age gap is a big issue?Are the chances of getting the application rejected even after having the genuine relationship?Why not 309 but PMV?Can I apply for PMV during the ban period of a year like I can apply 309?Or if I can does PMV stands a chance with that gap,does it have more chances to be accepted than 309?I m desperate sorry,appreciate how u r helping me.
