So sorry to hear about what happened, I'm crying for you I know how you feel, been in the exact same shoes. Our onshore 820 visa application was denied in March 2013 but we got offshore and applied again 4 months later and got the offshore 309 visa approved. Took us over 16 months though.

Apply for MRT and put in another application along with it.
Hand in there, I hope everything works out for you soon.
Good Luck and please do keep us updated. Praying for you and your family.

Kind Regards,
Becky

The MRT can take over another year.
Yes we were planning on marrying later this year but under a prospective marriage visa he can't work and earn money until we then pay more again for the partner visa. It's just money, money and more money.
He refuses to come out and not work and have me support him. My ex never worked and he wants to set the right example for my girls, how they should be treated.
The decision was based on not providing enough financial pooling evidence.
So 3 superannuation statements, all our receipts, bank statements showing he had use of my card on my account, our wills, Western union transfers was not enough.

You don't need to live together, you simply need to prove you're committed, you've met in person, and that you have plans to marry and live together in a genuine relationship.
Yes, then you can't work until you're married and then have to pay more fees because you eventually need the partner visa anyway.

I'm not 'baulking' at the MRT. I had just heard we couldn't apply for anything for another 32 months, which now appears to be wrong information anyway. I just wanted clarification on that. That's all. I can't afford to do either right now so I won't be able to appeal it in the given timeframe.

We each have our own financial commitments and child/ren and like you I am a very independent women... have bought my own home etc. and never have received any financial support from my son's father. Hmmm might need to open a joint account when he visits in Dec. But how absolutely absurd is it that people have to change their own successful way of doing things that work for their family to satisfy a pen pusher? Hmm now I'm angry and disappointed
Yes it's ridiculous in this day and age. You will have too succumb and open up a joint account. That was the only thing stopping us.

Under a PMV visa once granted they can work as soon as they land in Australia and find a job.

Since you applied for de facto did you provide evidence to show that you had lived together for 12 months prior to the application?

I am just wondering because we do have people that apply and don't have joint bank accounts and approved. These people showed individual bank accounts and highlighted the transactions. Did you guys do something like that?
