Im pretty sure im not the only person in Australia who has had a divorce after sponsoring someone from overseas.

Im also pretty sure that I am not the only person in Australia who has a partner from overseas who wishes to have their partner with them.

I find it very hard to believe that if you sponsor a person and it ended that you have to put your whole life on hold for 5 years to settle down with another person again.

Its quite unreasonable. I can fully understand the Australian government being strict on people doing dodgeys.

Basically i was in a happy relationship with my wife but busted her communicating with a boyfriends overseas which i knew nothing about. After confronting her she decided that she did not want to be with me anymore and decided to go back to her country and be with her boyfriend.

I really do not understand how since I had done nothing wrong in the relationship that I should be penalized 5 years and not be allowed to sponsor my new partner.

I can understand the rule if my ex wife left me and stayed in Australia and gained a PR then i can understand the government being a bit strict. But if she has left and gone back to her country and we are divorced then why does the penalty apply to me.

Does it make sense guys? I mean there is no time-frame on when you can fall in love or when you will find your partner so basically my situation is if my visa is rejected that i will have to wait until the 5 years is up to get my partner here. Does it really matter if its 5 years at the end of the day im going to get married to the girl i love and spend my life with her in Australia.

I just find this rule very stupid. Instead of tightening our borders and also dodgy overseas student visas they have strict rules on genuine people who want to call their fiancee over.

There are always going to be cases where the regulations do seem harsh daddymac but it's the case with all we do in life where there are regulations and they cover the majority of situations.
Unfortunately as in your situation there'll always be something that is not covered and may seem stupid or unfair, but the old moral applies about it being a tough road to buck city hall.
And one reason for regulations being as they are is that the more flexibility there was, bet your bottom dollar there'd be much more dodgy stuff going on and more impossible to control.

Edit: But look, that said, it may be of value to pay at least an initial consultation fee to a reasonable agency for there could be something tucked away in the regulations that is not made so apparent as what is published on the Immi site.
I'll send you some details.
