Question defacto help! Does time apart make a difference??

My partner and I met while I was on working holiday visa in Austraila 10 and half months ago we met on a resort and moved back into his family home, due to not having a car and living on the outskirts of a major suberb I found it impossable to find work and only having 7 months on my visa left people werent interested in such a short term contract so instead my boyfriend and his family supported me in return I did daily housework and chores untill my working holiday expired and I had to return to england , my partner planned to come over to england on a working holiday to england and we would apply once our 12 months had come around but we have been apart for a over a month to only hear his application wasnt successful becuase he hasnt got the funds in his bank to support him even though in evidence i wrote he had a place to live and a job lined up for him.

Now we are stumped on what to do next and this time apart effecting our defacto application , our options our to wait and for him to re-apply or go to new zealand together where we can at least both work and then apply for defacto any options we've missed out?

A month apart for a particular reason may not affect a later application but you would not want to let it stretch out into several months.
If you both can go to New Zealand and live together that sounds like a reasonable approach and to be safe, NZ have a 23 term WHV so being there together over 12 months would be best.

Hi there,

You can apply for a holiday visa then once you have the full 12 months of living together you can apply for an onshore DeFacto visa.

You need to know exact date you started living together and decided you were in a relationship together as meeting at a resort and happening to live in the same place will not count. Unless you can proove bills together before you moved to his family home. You may have to continue the way you were for the 7 months. But it should only be for 3 months this time. You can both travel together etc - you just need to get those 12 months. The 1 month apart is justified so I wouldn't worry.

Best of luck

Tourist visas often have No Further Stay conditions on them and that would prevent an application.
