interesting lawyer and one question

lets start with the question,

what is the difference with the case officer and immigration solicitor?

their knowlegde are just the same? or who has the privileges?

secondly, my wife doesnt work and using youth allowance,
he advised that, it is still possible that apply for a prospective marriage visa, they wont ask
AOS, really interesting advice, (she worked whole her life and since 6 months unemployed, i am still insisting lets apply after you found a part time job) that advice confusing me actually..

He also said : your wife is an australian citizen and she is entitled get marry with you and bring you here, unless you have something wrong with you.

he is immigration solicitor and 70 years old, he has 40 + experince,

one more strange thing that he said, your past visa violation in another country does not mean anything (it was 10 years ago while i was in usa i overstayed my student visa more than 1 year) and do not declare it.

well i paid for whole stuff done 4.000 au dollar, and he gave me impression that he is hell of a good lawyer and knows whole the tricks.

thats my australian wife comment on him ''He's like a wize old owl:-) that's what he calls himself''

really strange

Hopefully he is a wise old owl and your money is well spent.

A CO is not an immigration lawyer but could have some legal studies background and certainly will be familiar with Immigration Legislation.
I'm not too sure what you mean by privileges but a CO works for the Immigration Department, a government employee whereas your WOO could work for a company or be an independent operator and if processing your visa for you he should be a registered migration agent if he is in Australia.

There are still eligibility requirements for a PMV - Prospective Marriage Visa (Subclass 300) and the Immi Booklet #1 having a lot of information you can check.

The CO will determine whether it is considered AoS is required and no comment on what advice has been that is confusing you for you've not really stated what it is.
If you think it would be better for your partner to have a part time job before applying, that is a reasonable approach.

You make reference to your wife's entitlements but if you are applying for a PMV then she would not yet be your wife or if you have married abroad you should look at a different partner visa.
Your partner as an Australian Citizen does have some entitlements re sponsoring but again, there are applicant eligibility requirements for you as an applicant.

Overstaying a student visa in the US 10 years ago may not affect your application though a whole years overstay may be something Immigration would look at in respect to assessing your character and if there is a question on the application form that would mean it needs to be declared it would be best to do so rather than to have Immigration find out about it some other way for they have their own tricks too!

Not so strange that!
