We've been married over 3.5 years now and have a 2 year old. We lodged our case in Nov last year, but we have been assigned a CO and receive 1 RFI since. However, we were already married nearly 3 years at the time of lodgement. Does anyone know if the "long term" clause needs to be satisfied at the time of lodgement, or will the applicant automatically be assigned to this category the moment they satisfy these criteria?

It is at time of lodgement.

So, 2 years and a child, at time of lodgement, should be OK.

Collabusta,

I believe you will be granted 100 upfront since you have been in long term relationship and also have a child.

I have also been in a long term relationship for 6 years and married for 1.5 years. But we have been living separate since our relationship. We only get together during our holidays ever year. I don't think I really qualify for a long term relationship.

I think you do qualify for long term, it is supposed to be ‘How long you have been in a relationship together’ not how long u have lived together. That is my understanding of it. Hope i am correct and best of luck to all of u

Thank you for that link. I remember reading this definition before we lodged the application but I completely forgot about it.

I think Saz is correct. If you read through the definition of a "Long term relationship" at the link JandE provided, it does state "been with your partner..." I think you may qualify for the 100 too.

There is a further definition of this in migration law.

Long-term partner relationship, in relation to an applicant for a visa, means a relationship between the applicant and another person, each as the spouse or de facto partner of the other, that has continued.

It all comes down to proving it was a committed, exclusive, relationship similar to marriage. Good reasons for not actual living together all the time should be able to be accepted.

Thanks for the info guys. But I feel I didn't have enough evidence to prove this. So not sure how this will go. I might email them for a consideration
