advice on prospective spouse visa

Hi

I have recently become engaged to an Australian girl

We me online last year around September/October time and soon got too talking on the phone and online every day

She then visited me in the UK on the 26th Dec and stayed for 3 weeks and I travelled back with her to Australia and we have been together every day since then. We got engaged at the start of Feb

I am applying for the prosepective spouse visa when I return to the UK this week. The question I have though is regarding my fiancees employment status.

She has been in full time employment for the past 4 years, however, she just started a degree course at uni last week and will only be working part time.

Will we need to get someone else to act as an assurer for me? Does it have to be a family member?

I am a fully qualified Civil Engineering Technician and as such will be able to find work quite easily. Will they take this into consideration? In this line of employment I will easily be able to support my fiancee and me

thanks

They'll likely take all aspects into consideration, her employment record, her studying now, accommodation situation, your employment history as well as overall financial situation of you both.

If they ask for an AoS it does not need to be a family member and it is not a huge hurdle, the decision on Aos not actually being with DIAC and the Social Security people, Centrelink seem to be quite casual about it from a discussion I had with a fella of theirs recently.

Have you considered doing something like having a look about for an employer sponsor and pity you're leaving so soon for that.
For in being sponsored that way, you could establish your relationship to either get a partner visa or perhaps even get PR via an employer.

Anyway, best wishes whichever way you go with it.
