Getting married to my partner from overseas

Hi everyone,
I am an Australian and am excited to marry my partner who I've been with for a long time.

I'm very proud of her for overcoming the difficulties of learning a completely new language and adapting to a new culture even before she had my help.

We are getting married at the end of the year and she is a little overwhelmed with working 40 hours a week, wedding plans and also visa applications and eligibility. I'd like to help but being an Aussie, I have no clue about this sort of stuff.

She is currently on a bridging visa and has been in queue for a Remaining Relative visa - to be honest I have no idea what this is as this all happened before we met, but in any case my understanding is that she will now need to apply for a Partner visa (820)...which I assume means she will need to withdraw her pending Remaining Relative visa

Am I correct so far?

She is worried she will need to go back to her country of birth to apply but it appears she can be in Australia to apply for the 820 so I've been reassuring her about that

Is this simply a case of applying for the 820 and withdrawing the Remaining Relative visa application from the past?

Thanks very much

Not 100% sure on this but I think to apply for a partner visa you have to be on a substantive visa (I.e. Not a bridging visa). If you apply for a partner visa while she is on a bridging visa this triggers schedule 3 criteria which can be very difficult to meet and if she cannot meet schedule 3 then she would indeed have to go offshore to apply.

Would strongly suggest a consultation with an RMA - there are several who post on this forum who are very reputable - CCMS, wrussell, Jeremy Hooper and Mark Northam and sometimes Lisa Wulfsohn.

ampk and wrussell like this.
