I was on a working holiday visa and re-entered Australia 2 months before my visa expired to apply onshore having just married my now husband in the UK. I was really worried they were gonna ask why I was returning so close to the end of my visa but I walked right in.

My husband and my kids are aus and we aRe making the move to aus in august. I have had my applkcation in works for awhile just different things have happened and money not being on our side so couldnt launch earlier. I was going to do it offshore but worried they may not let me enter on a visior visa plus i dong get work rigts so now considering to wait until we arrive to lodge it.so i would have to apply for a regular visitor visa correct?
I lodged my application when I was on a sponsored temporary (4 year) business visa. I came to Australia on a working holiday visa to move in with my partner, but had already secured a job before I came to Aus, and this rolled into the sponsorship. It was only after a couple of years we heard I couldn't get PR through this sponsorship (something with timing of contracts meant I might not meet all the criteria) that we decided to go the partner visa route.

Assuming you've already lived with your husband for a couple of years (you say you have kids so I assume so), I would get to Australia on a visitor visa and apply for a partner one onshore, so you get a bridging visa. I don't know if you would get work rights on that bridging visa though, but maybe you can apply for them? (also, I'm not an expert, so you should probably not take my word for it... but it seems like the most logical way if you want to live in Aus while your application is being processed)

They responded within a couple of hours, informing me that "your application may be allocated to a case officer very soon for active assessment. Therefore, you are encouraged to upload the relevant documents to your file including completing health and character checks ( if not already done) in order to facilitate quick finalisation at the time of active assessment". So basically, it doesn't say very much .... "may" be allocated "very soon".. what does that mean?

Also I asked what happens if I get the visa while I'm overseas, and they responded with "You MUST be onshore ( in Australia) when your Partner application is finalised ( unless it is unfavourable and the requirements are NOT met)."

This is a bit confusing, because earlier they told me that if I were to be overseas when they want to finalise my visa, they would let me know and I would have some time to come back to Aus. Does anyone have experience with this? I AM going overseas.... can I let them know NOT to grant it in the period I'm away?
I had a similar situation... I applied January 2016 for my Parner Visa and my Student visa was to expire in February 2017. As I had to go overseas in March I applied for a Bridging Visa B that allowed me to travel.
While overseas they e-mailed me asking for a new police check, which I sent one week later (I was still overseas, had a friend who had my mail box key and scanned the police check for me). Arrived back to Aus and one week later got my Partner Visa approved.

Thanks for your response . The only thing I'm a little bit worried about is whether they can still see I'm overseas if I'm not on a bridging visa B... my business visa is still in effect (valid until July), so I don't have to apply for a bridging B to leave the country at the moment. Would they still check whether I'm onshore at the time they approve it? I hope (and assume) so . I applied in January 2016 too by the way, hopefully that means it's almost my turn!

They do check, and they can see at a glance. But it doesn't hurt to cover yourself and notify them when you're going overseas (if you're awaiting another visa) either via phone or via email or the contact form on the website.

Re: the part I bolded - the BVA when you're (general "you" ) waiting on a Partner Visa gives you full work rights. You just have to wait until your current stay on your current visa expires. (So if you come over on an ETA, it would be when your three-month current stay expires. If you're on a student visa, it's when your student visa expires, etc.)

Still nothing �� I'm starting to feel a bit anxious that maybe we should've done the translation but it definitely wasn't on the checklist. I know we should've done it anyway but we were waiting for them to ask for a translation of my police check before we forked out and they didn't. It's been three weeks since we submitted form 80 (which I'm sure you all know as I'm constantly complaining! I emailed yesterday to ask how long they think it'll be and if there's anything else missing.

Hi everyone. Hope you all are well.

Please help me!

So I got an email from the CO requested more information.
In the email he actually asked me to response to him in writing within 28 days. Does that mean I have to write an email back or just have to upload whatever documents were requested?

Also for the form 80, do I just fill it out then scan and upload it or do I need to send it for a security check or sth???

I'm so stressed now.

If it's just form 80, fill it out and upload it. You don't need to send it anywhere.

If there's other stuff that you won't be able to get within 28 days, reply and say that you have started the process to get whatever it is you need.

That's what I'd do.
