Hi , I cant really say why they gave us priority , all i know is i received a letter saying they had gone through my application and they felt my case should be prioritized, it could have been many reasons the fact i have a son that has a mental illness also the fact the person who denied our visa had made many mistakes in the letter we received about why we were refused, in which my husband and i sent a letter to MRT with the application stating all of this, my hearing was in PERTH via webcam it was handled by MRT in Melbourne , i know if it isn't prioritized it can be a very lengthy wait. All the best

So we are now going through the Tribunal and I am planning on returning to Morocco if we have to wait another 12 to 15 months for a hearing.
Can I ask you what kind of further proof of a genuine relationship you provided for the Tribunal ? The main point Mary refused us was that we do not have a joint bank account ( a bit hard to set up a bank account in Australia without him here to provide a signature!!) but it was the only point she could use as we have provided everything else. Any other point she made was either a lie or her own prejudice or misunderstanding of Moroccan culture. I am naturally very upset by all of this and would welcome any advice you could give me
Thank you
Regards

Hi gayle - I have not been to the forum for a while. No it seems MRT review has been extended as from may 2011 for a further 12 - 18 months minimum they told me when i phoned them beginning of may2011. This is totally not acceptable - i have written to members of parliament etc but they advised we just have to wait in line.

hello everyone..We got the news yesterday.We have our first hearing set in October only after 6months of waiting.Is this a cause for worry or of expectation/Some dont get to be heard for a while , some takes 1 year before the hearing is set.

Now that the hearing is set, my partner and I are all nervous and panicky...not for anything else but for the fact that my partner has speech prob and when he gets uncomfortable with a person , he stutters and shuts up.The solicitor knows about this and has requested a close door hearing.

We are hopeful that the end is near and will eventually be reunited the soonest time possible...

Theres no need to worry , the dates they give you is only an estimate of what they think the time frame will be before you have a hearing set and ofcpurse if it is prioritized like mine was, im thankfull to them though its now been a month since my husband has arrived and all is going really well it all just a memory now of what we had to go through. Just be truthfull and upfront about your relationship and im sure it will all go well and should be remitted back to the DIAC stay posotive all will be fine...best of luck to you and your husband theres always a light at the end of the tunnel , love will always find a way especially if its a strong love...take care

Ordeal's over!

Helllo everyone! I thought I will just give an update on our MRT appeal. The hearing was finished yesterday, October 18 and then interview lasted for 2hours with all the preliminaries and so on. After the hearing , my partner assured me that it went well. They didn't ask for another hearing nor for additional documents.The members of the tribunal were happy with the documents and our replies matched. We didn't also need witnesses but because his family was there already, they asked his sister anyway. We were told that the decision will be given in a month or less because ours have dragged on too long.

I am fervently hoping that we will be vindicated this time around....about time to be reunited with my partner and to end all the misery, stress and pain that were caused by this separation.

To all those waiting, hoping and praying....there is light at the end of the tunnel and a very bright one indeed! Keep hoping..keep dreaming..and keep the love alive no matter what!
