Congrats on the ETA, IndyMama. Hopefully you'll get lucky and yours will go the way mine will - they granted my PMV like the business day before I was due to fly out on the ETA. I had sent my CO a nice little reminder the week before about my upcoming travel. Didn't ask for an update or visa status... they just granted it. Probably to get me out of their hair.

Congratulations everyone. We just got denied due to the fact I prefer to be a financially independent woman. Is it true we can't now apply for any other visa for 32 months? We are completely devastated and in shock. I am still yet to tell our children. I think I will ring immi and let them be the ones to tell them.

I am sorry to hear that. I know its hard for us to understand not knowing all the details, but did they give you a chance to further prove your relationship or just decline it based on the fact you have separate money?

Also , I had you on my list to watch for FBI checks... did you ever get it? and if so how long did it take to get back? I thought I was good but as we have an adopted son they wanted one from my wife as well so we sent off the prints last week.... and now wait for them...

Again, I am sorry to hear this, I think there is an appeal process but have not had to look into it.

Kyliekinz I'm devastated for you!
Are you going to appeal to the MRT?
I presume you didn't have joint finances, so they denied based on lack of evidence?
You were a 309 applicant, right?

This is scary I haven't seen any rejections from the US yet

No, fbi check still hasn't come back. And the appeal cost another $1600. We are low income earners and trying to find more money to make this work is virtually impossible. I'm completely at a loss.
Yes we were told to give the more proof on our financial status. We gave them extra stuff like a superannuation saying his entitled to 100%, our wills, utility bills with his name on it at the Australian address, a letter from the bank stating he can not open an account or become a member until he is a resident, bank statement, Western union transfers. But no joint account. No showing he pays my bills. And why should he. We are running two households. He pays over there and k here and we help each other out when necessary. Receipts but because they receipts don't actually specify his name they won't take it into account.

I'm so sorry to hear this!

Re bank not allowing him to open an account due to resident overseas, I was able to open a joint account with my SO on my first visit to Australia. You might want to look at finding another bank. I can PM you the bank that allowed this.

The problem is that he is not in Australia and being of low income we can not afford the constant travel back and forth

It really doesn't matter now. It's been refused and there is no way we can come up with $1600 to appeal it in the timeframe we have been given. What I really want to know is it really a 32 month ban on applying for other visas now this has been refused. When my husband rang and enquired they told him this but I can't find that info anywhere. If so, they have successful manage to break all of our hearts. It's too much to ask of my children to have such instability in their lives for another 3 years.

OMG that sad . Never seen a rejection from the US.

You can apply again immediately but unless you had additional evidence you will probably see the same fate. The best bet would be MRT and it is also cheaper than a new visa application.

Was it de facto or spouse? The children your together or individually? How long did they take to give you the decision?

Again I am sooooo sorry.

How about starting a joint account in your country or wherever he is? I know you must be in shock but think of how you could rectify the problem so when you reapply or go to MRT you can strengthen your application.

Couldn't you borrow the money - from several friends, family, bank ? I don't know but I just feel so sad for you. ((hugs))
