Question Partner Visa Application Onshore

Hi All
Just have a couple of questions relating to my upcoming applications

- Do I only need a medical if I get asked to do one or should I do one in advance just incase?

- My partner is married and going through a divorce at the moment, currently dividing assets and solicitors letters are going back and forth. Will this be held against us or will it be ok as we can provide proof that he is in the process of divorce? We will be able to show proof of divorce as soon as it happens. (he has been seperated for almost two years)

- Does anyone know if it is only in Sydney or if there is anywhere in Brisbane where you can go in person to lodge your application and get it approved there and then (provided all info checks out and everything is correct)?

- Will it do me any good getting a letter from my employer to say I am working on a permanant full time basis with them?

- Also I know this question has come up before but due to "the divorce" situation we dont have anything joint in financial terms, no bank accounts together and my name cant be on any bills until the divorce is sorted out - I do pay for most of our groceries and alot of other things for the household - is there any other ways we can deal with the financial aspect to prove we are genuine?

- On the checklist for the application form it says to provide proof of character checks - is this the police check?

Ok I think thats it for now! Phew Sorry & Thanks heaps in advance!!

Yes, you can do your medical in advance if you want to and married people can sponsor partners.
If you have a look at the applying section, you'll see that there's a few Queensland offices - Partner Visa: Onshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 820 and 801) but as for walking in and getting a visa there and then, it's not always the case and in fact more a rarity than a frequent occurrence.

You'll certainly need your medical and police clearances already supplied for that to have any chance of happening.

I doubt that a letter from your employers is going to help all that much as Immi will know yoor employment is based on your WHV conditions.
Have you looked into Employer Sponsorship?

If you have a look at the elkitten sticky you'll find a few ideas and one is to go through both your bank statements and see what there is that can be readily identified as payment by one or the other for joint expenses, but essentially you'll need to be putting up whatever you can that supports the existence of the relationship and seems you had better get some good statements by friends or whomever that testify to it.

Character check is the Police check.

Thanks
Ive got my police clearance cert as I had to get one for starting in the job Im currently in.
Ive booked my medical, its in a couple of weeks for the first appt and then the week after for the second appt.
I have already asked a few people to start preparing statements for us.
I have all evidence that Ive been collecting over the past 15 months and Im going to start sorting through that tonight to try and put some order in place and figure what Im going to use.
I think we will go with the choice of using the migrant agent, just to be on the safe side, at least I can sit down with her and she can tell me if what i have is or isnt good enough.
I have also ordered complete bank statements and will begin going through them when they arrive.
I have been feeling very stressed out by this whole thing but Im hoping that will ease off a bit now that Ive gotten the ball rolling so to speak. The more I can tick off the list the happier I will be.

The Visa applications can certainly be a bit overwhelming but as you're finding, getting the ball rolling and working on a Checklist will create that sense of progress.
Best wishes with it all.

Thanks Wanderer. It is daunting but as you say getting the checklist started has eased my mind somewhat. We have decided to go with the migrant agent route and we're meeting her in a weeks time so that should also help with any worries I might have.
I have also booked my medical.
Thanks again

We have already submitted a partner visa application and we were hoping to be able to use the x ray that my wife took in Feb this year. We were told that she'd still need to go for a health check though. How do we get one organised? She would feel more comfortable getting a female doctor - is this request normally met? Thanks!

It'll depend on what doctors are approved for the medical examinations in your area as to whether you can find a female one or not and they will determine the need for an Xray and I suspect the February one will be too old if so.
