And he said it is true n he will put a note in the system for me.

So I think it is better u call them if u hav strong things to diffent your self, but present it in a good manner way without ofend them. As long you know what you are talking about etc.

So maybe try to call them again just to remind them
Thanks for the ideas, that's what we plan to do. Although it's difficult, when the person on the other side of the line doesn't really want to talk... or listen.
Let's hope we get that nice gentleman on the line this time...

de facto onshore and employer troubles

Hello guys congrats for the awesome informations really helpfull. My situation is really mixed up at the moment. Yesterday we lodged the defacto onshore application form. A friend of mine said to me this morning that the CO for sure will call my employer to find out my employment status( even if i attached a letter of my employer in the application file) i have a fear of what informations the CO will share with my manager because if my employer will find out that i lodged an application for defacto same sex visa the other day i will be axed from work ( they are very homophobic especially my boss) and if i will be axed i will have problems with my PR visa 857( 2 years employment under the same employer which i dont have it) because a year ago i have been sponsored by this company. Whats your sugestions should i call the DIAC and say to not call my employer or to leave it as it is? Because if i got axed will be DIAC's mistake advice me guys.

We lodged our application in late June and been granted in August, we didnt get any phone call from DIAC. They didnt call my bos or my partner bos, they didnt even call people that wrote form 888.
But I think it depends on your Co. Maybe someone can give u the right answer

Hi Laura,

You don't have to write a seperate statement just for house choees. Instead, this topic and other things about the relationship e.g. payment of bills, how you support each other, relationship history etc can be put in one statement.

My husband and I each wrote one but made sure we wrote them individually so that they weren't exactly the same.

The visa is a defacto visa, period. It's not a same-sex visa or a heterosexual visa. It's a partner visa sub-class 309/100.

I am also a same-sex defacto visa holder. DIAC should be verifying your employment history - not your orientation - with your employer, if they call at all.

I think your bigger risk is that if or when the CO talks to your boss, and your BOSS finds out that you are applying for a partner visa, it is your BOSS who will ask you about it.

I didn't have to worry about it - no one called my employer, or my 888 folks - can anyone out there put a finger on the privacy laws that DIAC must adhere to? If a CO discloses a same-gender relationship and the applicant gets fired because of it, does he or she have any legal recourse?

Aussiemate, I would just make sure you are the best worker your boss has - keep your head up - and don't sweat. IF you have a chance to speak with your CO, you may wish to mention your concern verbally. I fear that if you document this fear in writing to your CO, he or she might suspect that you are trying to hide something about your work history.

If my boss ask why the CO asks for employment history ? are they allow to say that i lodged partner visa? And my partner works as well so maybe this dicrease the posibility of DIAC contact my employer? I think is better to put in writing to contact my employer if they have to but not to mention anything about the visa. Because if i got axed i can say to the court that i had it in writing but CO ignored me. what do you think? Under the freedom of information my boss can find out about the visa application?
