Prospective Marriage Visa?

Hello

I am an Australian Citizen and my fiancÚ is a British Citizen, and we want to apply for a Prospective Marriage Visa. I'm currently 17, so when I turn 18 my partner and I are going to meet up again, since I noticed that I would have had to have met him when I was 18 before we apply. After he returns to England, we will probably apply for it. My fiancÚ is currently 20.

We have a lot of evidence, and he has been here for the past year on a Working Holiday Visa, so I was wondering if we would have a good chance at getting accepted? He has been living here with my mother and I, and she has been supporting him whilst he has been here. I will probably be employed when we apply, so I can sponsor him. He will be going back in November.

Will having met online affect our chances at all? Also, will getting married when I'm 18 affect it? Both families agree to write something for further evidence towards our application.

I have been reading up a lot about this for the past couple of months, so I know a decent amount of what we would require. We're both extremely worried, though. We have been together for 2 years now, we really want to make sure this works out. We're planning to live together for the rest of our lives, it's just so overwhelming and all of this immigration stuff is stressing us out so much.

Also, would there be a different partner visa that would suit our situation better?

Thank you very, very much for any of your help. I've read through a lot of threads on this forum and everyone is very helpful.

Meeting online will not affect your chances. Don't worry, it is quite common nowadays. Try to get some friends to write a stat dec to support, too.

I think PMV is easier to apply compare to a partner visa. PMV only requires you to have met your partner in person, while a partner visa need you to show that you have been living together for a considerable amount of time.

I think you should wait until you are over 18 (so you can be a sponsor) before you apply for PMV. Don't get married first if you want to apply for PMV. You can get married within 9 months after your partner have been granted the visa. Just my two cents.

From what you have shared, a PMV is your only option right now. The other partner visas both require you to have lived with your partner for 12 months before applying. The good news is that the relationship evidence required for a PMV is less intense than a partner visa.

In this age couples that meet online are common. We've got several regular contributors that met their partners online. Your age shouldn't be an issue either if you are mature enough to make a lifelong commitment (I don't know the answer - only you do).

Best of luck with whatever you choose to do.

Thank you both very much for your help and quick response. We'll wait until I turn 18 and see where that takes us. I definitely feel as though I am mature enough to make a life long commitment, and I have so for a long time now. I'll come back and let you all know how everything is going when I turn 18.
