partner visa

Dear Sir,

I stayed with my girl friend since June 2012, at that time she was holding a working holiday visa issue from Taiwan, and expired on Oct 2013 (2nd year WHV). At that time, I was applying for a RSMS visa but was granted on Dec 2013.

Because at the time her visa expired I still cant sponsor her as my visa was granted two month after she decided to extend her stay by applying a student visa.

At the moment, she is holding a student visa and expire in two years time. and we lodged our partner visa (de facto) on Feb 2014. We discuss the matter and think that she already had a bachelor degree from Taiwan and we had already spent too much in both our visa application. So she would like to stop her study. And we would like to ask what can we do at the moment?

In Oct 2013 when the time she applied her student visa, she already pay one year school fee in advance, but as the school know that she is applying for the partner visa and may quit the study or can pay a reduced amoint once the visa granted, the principle keep asking her to pay the 2014 to15 school fee in advance. We feel very stress now. Please help us!

Unfortunately she is still bound by the terms of her student visa as it will stay in effect until it expires naturally or until her Partner Visa is granted, whichever happens first.

If she stops her study or otherwise does not abide by the terms of her student visa, her student visa will be canceled - and her Bridging Visa A along with it. She will have to immediately go to immigration and apply for a Bridging Visa E, which comes with NO work rights at all, and no right to travel outside of Australia and be allowed back in. And she will have to deal with that for as many as 15 more months while her partner visa processes. She MAY be able to apply for work rights, and if she can demonstrate hardship, DIBP MAY grant her work rights - but it's not a certain thing. And she definitely will not be able to leave the country the entire time.
