I can't pm u anymore polly ur messages are full but...here is my reply



Sure I will help u no problem. I did literally drown them second pmv. So much so the co eventually wrote to me and said pls don't send any more I'm satisfied about ur relationship. Best words I ever heard

I still recommend u do a consult first to see if ur better off doing mrt or doing 2nd visa cause u don't want to go down road of mrt and get refused on technical legal grounds

Meeting went okay. MP said once decision is made by DIBP it cannot be reversed but to reapply for visa and MP will back me up at MRT. I am waiting for more information from them.

Thats seems to me "THEY DONT CARE".

What did they expect when you went there for a meeting? That you'll home cook food for them? Duh………Simply jerk-offs they are. Can't believe they chickened out of it.

They could have at least send a letter even if that won't change a thing but it's a simple gesture of empathising with you, but what did they say… "Decision can't be changed".

I knew their decision before hand because something happened with me in the past and I've sent them a long email to which they replied: "Stay here in Australia or go back. Your own choice". They didn't say exactly that but that was the gist if it.

What's your next step after such a reply?

I will talk to a migration agent to represent me/us at MRT I guess.

You are right, being separated from better half is hell!

Had a similar response 25 years ago when I went to my MP for help with our PMV obviously things haven't changed.It is true though that every overseas post is autonomous and responsible for its own decisions and will not bend to outside pressure.
Just get as much information together as possible for your appeal Good Luck

Yes we are making an appeal. We will go to the Migration Review Tribunal, which unfortunately can be another 18 months.
Being separated from husband is hell. I am lucky I can go over there to visit him.
Thank you for your wishes.
Hi Polly, It saddens me to read your story. I hope you hear something positive soon. I married a Pakistani guy too. Im not Pakistani but a fiji born Australian. My husband and i decided to marry in court because i didnt have the time to do the traditional thing. I was only there for 12 days. We did have a small reception with some members of his family the day before i was leaving. We didnt have any problems with photo taking. I didnt really find Pakistan as conservative as i thought it was, it was my first visit there. I didnt even wear the traditional clothes, people did stare but that didnt worry me. I did make sure i had a scarf around my shoulders. I think you were just very unlucky and maybe didnt get enough information before you decided to get married as to how the system works there. And bribery is everywhere i noticed. Once they know you are a foreigner they try to get as much as they can out of you. Cant really blame them too much cos life is hard there. Wish you all the best. My husband and i met on skype. We got married couple of days after we met in person. I have known him for nearly 2 years online. People have said here that it was too soon and immigration may question that but in Pakistan you cant just live with someone unless youre married. And we are in love and were talking of marriage for nearly 18 months. Actually my husband and i were sitting in a park just enjoying the fresh air and someone called the police. They thought we had eloped. lol. Scared the hell out of me. Hubby told them i was his wife, they wanted to see papers of our marriage...lol..who takes wedding certificate out walking...told them it was back at the hotel. They let it go..did want money for sweets hubby said come to hotel and he was going to feed them as much sweets as they wanted cos he didnt have money on him. You just have to be clever when dealing with such people.
