309 vs 100

My wife just got her partner visa granted!

Only we had applied for SC 100 and were expecting to get it as we have been married for over 3 years and have a child together. Is the only difference in visas the ability to claim Centrelink benefits and other things like Commonweatlh supported tertiary study? I don't think these will affect us, but I just want to make sure we are not missing out on something which could benefit us while we still possibly have the chance to ask our CO to reconsider.

Thanks!

You should tell your case officer that you should have been eligible for the 100. It will save you another 2 year wait until it is granted and can make life easier regarding employment etc.

I agree with Ktty. If you provided evidence you've been married for three years, you should have been given the 100.

First - congratulations on the visa 309.

Legally married for 3 years with a child from that relationship.....met the Visa 100 requirement.

Perhaps there is another reason for the 309 visa being granted that the CO could explain for you.....?
They do make mistakes but you were expecting the Visa 100.....so there must be another reasons.

From immigration website:

There are four main criteria for the grant of a Partner (Permanent) visa.

1. Demonstrating you are living in a genuine and continuing relationship
(married or de facto) with your partner.
2. Assessing eligibility of any children who are also included in the Partner
(Permanent) visa application and that relevant custody criteria are met.
3. Character checks.
4. Health checks

Good luck.
