Partner Visa

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help. I'm in a relationship with an Australian who has dual citizenship (Aus/UK). We have recently got engaged and I would like to move over to Austalia to live with him. I'm from the UK and have an 11 year old son from a previous relationship.

Are there any benefits to him being Australian for me getting my Visa, is it a partner Visa that I would apply for?

He is willing to come back to the UK for a short while as its difficult what with the distance, but I know eventually we will want to move over to Oz.

Any help or advice would be appreciated....

Thank you

Hi Sarah,

If you want to migrate to Australia you have 2 options:

First, you can get a prospective marriage visa (fiance visa). You need to show you are free to marry (ie not legally married to another person) and satisfy other criteria to show you have a genuine relationship. You need to arrange a wedding date and provide a notification of intention to marry with your application. Once you enter Aust. you must get married within 9 months and then apply for a spouse visa as a married applicant.

Second, you could get married and apply in the UK as a married applicant. This would save a lot of time because you wouldn't have to apply for two visas, as you would with a prosepctive marriage visa.

Here is the link to the relevant section of the DIAC website:

Family - Visas & Immigration

It's confusing, but if you read the site carefully and also take a loot at the Partner Booklet http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/booklets/1127.pdf it will help you get a better understanding of the process and the criteria you need to satisy in order to be eligible and put together a solid applicaton.

With your son, a couple of things that do not exactly jump out of the Immi information are:
1. Approval by legal agreement or court order for your son to leave the UK if that is what your intent is.
2. The Aussie/UK guy will also need an Aussie police check because a child is involved.
And yes, benefit of him being an Aussie is without him being so or a PR, he could not sponsor you.
But read the info from the links ag has given, get yourself an application form and use the Checklist and you'll be able to make up a list of all the to do things and decide on the PMV or straight to partner visa and get an application ready.

With regards to point 1, I wasn't aware that I would require this as my son was born in 1998 and me and his biological father are not married and I have full parental responsibility??

Thanks for your replies, I very much appreciate them!

Australian Immi will require you being able to provide some form of documentary evidence re legal custody.
You can read detail in Booklet #1/ P23
