Nick is right in saying that you should be prepared.

In all honesty, if you aren't comfortable doing the application yourself because you don't want to risk making mistakes and wasting your $7000 app fee, you should budget for and consider and RMA as part of the cost of your application. Even if you wait a bit longer to apply to be able to do so. Tax return season is quickly approaching in the US so that may be a nice lump of money you can put towards it if you get one.

Best of luck to you.
Thank you, it's just really important to get this approved and I know the longer it takes, the harder it may be. Im currently living in an abusive home and I just want to be back where I'm happy.

Is it easier maybe to apply for the work and holiday visa instead? That way I don't have to spend as much money on the fee (I know it's like 1000 dollars) then I'll come back and apply for the pmv once I've saved enough. That way I'll also be able to acquire document easier as well, and I know you still have to show proof of funds.

If you're eligible for one, it is certainly worth a shot, as it will give you more time to work things out.

I understand you're keen to get this under way, but it is important to work out a realistic strategy. That's why for many applicants, it is a good idea to have the assistance of a professional, who is not emotionally involved and who will look at your circumstances and the available evidence and advise you accordingly.

The only thing I worry about with that is that you have to be a "genuine visitor". Since I plan on moving there eventually, I don't know if I qualify. I don't have a criminal record, or major health issues, and I speak English...I just don't want to screw it all up. Do you help with work and holiday visas? It might be cheaper this way.

It is all about your intentions...

If you are going to apply for a sc. 300, it will be an offshore application anyway. It is also quite a common scenario for people on WHV and Tourist Visas to apply for a sc. 820 visa, once they are in Australia.

There should be plenty of posters here who have done the W&H visa and can point you in the right direction. Try and do a search.

An eta would be even better. It's easier to get one and it gives us a bit of time to get things together. I think I'll do that, thank you so much though and I will definitely contact you when I'm ready to proceed.

That's ok. Best of luck. True love will conquer everything...

It might be easier to get but it doesn't come with any work rights. Given you have limited savings, and your partner is earning a relatively low income, it might be prudent for you to look more closely at the WHV. Australia is expensive.

Working holidays a good route, easily applications and gives you some work and study rights.

I had one 5 years ago, I'm still here. If you don't currently have funds to do the partner visa this would be a great route to persue, you and your partner can be together and you can continue saving and building evidence until such time as you're ready to submit.
