461 Visa renewal after relationship breakdown | Any success stories?

Hi everyone,

I would like to hear of anyone who has been successful at renewing their subclass 461 NZ family relationship visa, despite no longer being in a relationship with the NZ family member.

I have been living and working in Australia for seven years. Five of those years have been on a 461 visa with my Kiwi DeFacto partner (who I was with for a total of 7 years). My current 461 visa expires in December 2017.

I have just submitted my application to renew for another five years which included a submission of:
  • 147 form (The 461 application form, stating I am not longer in DeFacto)
  • 80 form (character)
  • A letter confirming our separation, signed by both parties (in addition I informed Immigration of our breakup last November 2016)
  • Supporting ID, police checks and ex-partner's Passport

Now I anxiously wait. If anyone has any similar experiences I'd love to hear them.

Thanks in advance
Ange

Hi,

Have you had any luck on hearing anything yet?

I am needed to do the same I am just waiting for my clearances to come back from UK.

Do I really need to submit my Ex Partners details again? I don't have any contact with him anymore he is now the member of another family. I am single.

Any help with this would be so much appreciated.

As a 461 visa holder you can continue obtaining new 461 visas despite the relationship breakdown until you enter into a new relationship.

Hello
Thank you so much for your reply!

Do immigration require anything from my ex partner in the new 461 visa application I will be doing shortly?

I don't have contact with him any longer. I don't wish to either.

Can you in your experience give me a check list of what I will need ?

Thanks again ,
Bec

No I can’t, because I have never lodged a sc. 461 visa, so I don’t have any up-to-date checklists. Reason being is that I have never ever encountered a Kiwi willing to pay for the service and that is fair enough, but the consequence is that I don’t bother with these type of applications.

I believe it is relatively straightforward. Maybe someone here can share their personal experience.

Hey Bec

My 461 renewal has been received back in October/November but not yet processed so I donít have much of an update.

The form is a bit confusing as even though there is the option to say that you are separated, it still seems to ask for relationship evidence. I am still in touch with my ex so when I submitted my application he gave me his new passport and address information and also signed a letter that I wrote to say we had separated. I am not sure if that was necesssary though but I figured anything that would support my application is a good idea.

I did also find someone who has gone through the same situation of renewing the visa without their partner with success. I imagine it just depends on individual circumstances.

I can update this forum with more info that might help when my application is processed.

Thanks
Ange

Hi Angela, any luck with your visa renewal? 🙂 Hope its all sorted out? Do you think applying 2 months prior expiration is good? Cheers

This has been mentioned before, yes you can apply for the renewal of a 461 visa, even if your relationship has broken down.

Correct, as long as you are not in a new relationship.
