Help: after waiting 12 months spouse visa refused

We are very upset and sad. Yesterday we received an email that our spouse visa was refused.

What will we do?

Sorry to hear this. You can appeal the decision and go to a hearing. Otherwise you could try a different visa.

What reason did they give for your refusal? I'd contact a MARA-registered agent, and then depending on the reason for the refusal (i.e., if you can prove they were incorrect in what they said with evidence) I'd either go forward with appealing at MRT, or collect additional evidence and re-apply if you think you don't have a case for MRT.

Reason was we couldn't supply NADRA marriage registration certificate. Nikah Nama was ignored and DIBP told us we are not legally married.
We advised DIBP that we have taken out a court decree against Secretary of Union Council. We were hoping DIBP would wait a couple of extra weeks until the court case was finished and we received our MRC.
What other visa are you suggesting we can take out.

Sorry to hear about your refusal. You could go a pmv since you aren't legally married. A nikah nama is not a legal marriage unless you register it ... without registration it is a religious marriage only.

Thanks for your information Mish. But we are going through court as we speak and hopefully, should have our MRC ready for the tribunal.

Have you thought of reapplying after you get your certificate? Just that by the time it goes to mrt and then back to the embassy (applicant will also need their medicals and police checks redone) it could be 18 months or 2 years until finalised.

Were they informed of the pending court case?

Certainly a bit rough if they were. Very sorry to hear.
