I head back to Australia while husband waits?...

Hello, just wanted some general advice,

My husband and I have completed our visa application (offshore, Turkish, Spouse visa) medicals, police check, form 80 all done and have been waiting 3months now.

Currently I am thinking that I will leave within the next month back to Australia. My reasons for wanting to go back now include my father isnt in the best health now and with my mother working, i can be off more help there at the moment.

Also it will give me time to get things sorted in Australia, start working, etc. as I almost feel that simply waiting here for the visa is wasting time.

So my question, will my leaving early (not waiting for his visa) be seen in a negative way or be seen as presumptous?

And my second question, should we write a letter to the case officer or is there a specific form that should be filled out?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

It'll make no difference to the visa application if you return to Australia sb but good idea to contact them re where you'll be.

It's your husband who is the applicant in any case but notifying the CO would not hurt and if a phone call is possible I'd do that and it might just help to get some feedback if not jog it along a bit.

Failing that, just a short email to advise/confirm contact details for Australia[and best to have it in writing, so perhaps a call if possible and also email] and brief reason [just family illness would do], no harm in asking on progress by email either.

You'll be fine. Just get your husband to e-mail to let your CO know and state the reason you are leaving, and it's all good.

I don't think it affects how the visa is processed--my BF was out of North America a few weeks before we applied, but, we stated the reasons in our application, so its no problem. If your relationship is geniune, then its genuine, whether or not you go first =)

Well, so sorry to hear about the condition of your father. anyways, as what ^ said, you can go back to Australia and still keep on waiting for the processing of your husband's visa. It wouldn't really be an issue as there are some partners who arranges their visas while the other partner is in his country and the spouse or the one who needs visa is in hers.

Thanks everyone, as usual you were all spot on again. Spoke to our case officer, said the same thing... Sometimes i think the waiting causes my common sense to halt

Also thank you for the well wishes for Dad

I am dying to head back to Australia after 7 months in Bangladesh, i am sure you could all imagine the pain of that!
I was born and bred in Australia and my husband is Bangladeshi. I have tried my best to fit in, i'm working etc. But it isn't helping. I miss my family, friends, food, clean air, clean roads in Australia. And getting sick every week.
But you know what, despite all this, i can't leave my husband. I know love makes you crazy. Didn't know how much crazy :S
P.S You all have to try 3rd world living to be grateful for what you have in Australia
