All the best LadyRogueRayne. I do know, believe me. My husband had a serious illness 4 years ago and complications during surgery. I was terrified of the medical, but it all turned out OK.
Best of luck to you and your partner.

Thank you for that. My partner is the Aussie citizen who has to go through a corneal transplant surgery. He's legally blind in his right eye already (his disease progressed really fast in that eye) and has 6/12 vision in his left. I'm hoping we get a positive response from DIBP fairly quickly, as it's already stressful enough getting ready for his transplant surgery.

Thanks for that Renekara! I hope so, too. We're staying positive that his surgery will be successful and go well. As for the schedule 3 stuff, I'm just curious as to how long DIBP takes to make a decision. I've seen some get a decision in as little as 2 days, while others it seems, took months. It's just so crazy!

Hi LadyRogueRayne, I am sorry, but I am not sure about schedule 3 stuff at all. To be honest, I am not even sure what that is...
But I hope everything goes well for you guys and I hope you hear good news really soon!
Immi is taking way too long to process all these applications, and I think we are all in the same boat. We are all getting impatient and frustrated.

schedule 3 until a recent case, was very nasty to have to meet.

The way DIBP were applying Schedule 3 made it almost impossible to comply.

Yes, DIBP is taking a long time to process apps. But, hopefully you'll hear something soon, Renekara. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Schedule 3 is a list of requirements that you have to meet if you apply for the 820 visa while on a bridging visa, or if you were unlawful (do not hold a substantive visa). I was on a BVA when we applied, as we had a few things happen that didn't allow me to go with my original plan of a 189 skilled visa. And though I stayed completely lawful, our circumstances led to this, unfortunately. We do meet the Schedule 3 requirements. However, the "compelling circumstances" caveat is the tough one to meet. My partner has to have transplant surgery, so if he were to leave, he wouldn't be able to get it and would go completely blind. Plus, he relies on me for driving, helping him (visual things like reading, etc), as well as daily household activities. Once he has his surgery, he will completely rely on me until he heals. Additionally, his father has been ill (had a stroke about 6 months ago). There are also several other things that we highlighted to show why we had to go this route. We looked at all of our options, and this was really the best one for us. We have worked with MARA agents to help prepare our Schedule 3 response and all we can do is hope that the CO that we get will feel that our circumstances are compelling. It is tough, because there is no set list of what circumstances are to be considered "compelling" and it is completely up to the CO to determine. If they deny it, then the next option is AAT, at which point we go to tribunal and present our evidence there. I did my homework and prepared our statements/evidences in line with similar AAT cases. It's my hope that the CO accepts it and we don't have to go to AAT.

It's all very scary and I would never advise anyone to go the route we had to take. Most Schedule 3 waivers get denied; however, there have been changes since the pivotal case in March 2016. That being said, I feel we prepared a very strong case and we're trying to stay positive. We're going about our lives as usual and not allowing it to hold us up on anything. For us, no news is good news, as they are usually pretty quick with denials. If we get asked for police checks and medicals, that will be a good sign. So, now all we can do is wait and see what happens.

Good luck LadyRogue! I understand how stressful it must be, but it does sound like you have a very strong case. Fingers crossed!! All the best with your partners surgery also.

Thank you for that! I truly appreciate the moral support and it is greatly needed right now. Yes, we are hoping it goes well and his body doesn't reject the transplant. We go to Perth next month to meet with the surgeon and go through the preliminary steps. We don't know exactly when they will do the surgery. We're hoping it will be after Christmas, but before the new school year starts (I'm a teacher). That way, I'll have all of January to care for him, while he's convalescing. It will take a year for it to completely heal, but he should be able to have bandages/patches removed after a month or two. Which will be good, because I will be the one working, as he cannot work while it's healing, or he could rip stitches/damage the transplant.

We do have a strong case, and again, would NOT have gone this route if we could have avoided it. Just gotta stay positive and hope for the best.
