309? My toddler and I are citizens but husband isn't

Hi all,

So I got married to my Sri Lankan husband and moved to Sri Lanka 5 years ago from Australia and I have since then acquired dual citizenship. I wish to go back to Australia, and I think it won't be a problem for myself or my child (aged 2) who is a citizen by descent.

My question is, I am currently not working so I can't be my husband's sponsor financially. I intend to start working as a teacher once I go back to Australia. Can I show money in my joint account with husband? He also has assets and shares in company's that he gets returns from. Can those be used as evidence that he can be supported financially? Has anyone done this?
I'm going to speak to agent soon but just want to know if anyone else has been in this situation?

I don't want to have to go to Australia months ahead of him to get a job and struggle alone with a toddler 😭

There are no financial requirements to sponsor a spouse for a visa, so no issues on that front.

I have not heard of a case where a sponsor was refused for not satisfying the minister of the ability to meet a sponsorship undertaking; accommodation and financial assistance for a couple of years. If there is evidence of a sponsor, or family members, having the capacity I collect the supporting evidence, just in case. I have never had to use it, but you never know what THEY will do next.

As long as you don’t ask the govt support like job seeker or something, also your bank has a bunch of money in cash. It can show to your future case worker that when your hubby come to Australia, he won’t need govt support n that’s the sponsor’s job!!!!

Sponsor responsibility:
“You must help your partner and their children who are granted the visa by providing:
• accommodation
• financial assistance, including
• English language courses, if needed
• other support such as child care, if needed”

People can & do support their partners (applicants) on welfare benefits - or on low income without cash in the bank.

The government provide "free" English language courses ,if needed to Partner Visa holders.

The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) provides up to 510 hours of English language tuition to eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants to help them learn foundation English language and settlement skills to enable them to participate socially and economically in Australian society

Incorrect there is no need to have any money in the bank and you can be on benefits.
At the moment it's a moral obligation and not one that needs to be proven
