Spouse/Partner sponsorship

Hi there,

Hoping someone can shed some light on my questions.

I am an Australian currently living with Canadian BF in Canada. I've been here since Feb 09. We have decided life in Australia will be much better for us. He is currently finishing a Certificate in Water Treatment as well as workng. I on the otherhand haven't been able to work due to my visa status.

I will move back to Sydney in April and he will follow in May 2011 when he completes his studies. We are also going to be having our 1st child in June.

Will I be able to sponsor him due to the fact that I do not have employment when I return to Aust? He will be qualified to get employment, but I'm worried that I will not have the requirements to sponsor him for a Partner Visa.

Is this the case or am I worrying about nothing?

Thanks for any advice...

First of all I would get some medical advice about flying while well advanced with a pregnancy.
Your lack of employment could be taken into account re sponsoring though in some cases it may mean that you are required to provide an Assurer of Support, like a guarantee and anyone earning over about $26,000 can do that, so perhaps parents, other rellies of friends.
For your Bf to be successful with a partner visa, it will be best if an application is made while you are still together if you already have more than 12 months living together and have good evidence of that.
Have a look at the eligibility and other details re your options @ Family - Visas & Immigration , a partner visa abroad being cheaper and they do take some time to be processed so for he to have a visa by May, he needs to get cracking with the application.

To avoid the risk of it either being rejected or not being granted by May, if he is young enough, say 30 or less he might be better off initially applying for a WHV - Visa Options - Working Holiday - Visas & Immigration , they usually being granted within days if not same day and then when he is in Australia he may either find an employer who is prepared to do an employer sponsorship or you just proceeed to work on the onshore partner process.
