Talking 820 De Facto - GRANTED!

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that our partner visa application was granted today words fall short.

We applied in Melbourne, onshore de facto, on 23 January 2013. We saw others around us granted before us and along the year and a half long way things were tough, as a tumour was found in my partner's brain. Immigration confirmed this did not affect the application or processing methods or speed - which we did not expect it to, to begin with. But if anyone is ever in a similar situation - fyi.

I am mainly posting this to thank those of you who advised and supported along the way... Mark you are an invaluable, incredible human being - thank you for sharing your knowledge so freely. It is such a profound expression of kindness because you change lives with it, and you comfort those of us who are in an often invisible limbo of the western world.

CollegeGirl, louiseb, Jazzyfizzle... there are so many others but so much time has passed. Thank you. Can never repay the support.

This forum is gold. We applied and got granted without hiring an agent and we had quite a lot of odds against us. We never had much money and we never had bills in both names or housing in both names. We made the best of what we had and a lot of faith in humanity was restored for us when we heard that that was enough. You don't have to have a house, two cars and 1,5 kids. You don't need to stay at hotels together every month. You don't need to have the perfect case to be a valid case.

I will share some tips about our application in the appropriate thread later this week, for people who are or will be in circumstances similar to ours.

Just thank you all. From the bottom of our hearts.

Nelly & James

I was so terrified... we've had pretty much all odds against us from day 1 and since we were taking so much longer than everyone else, and our financial situation was far from the ideal, I already saw the "NOPE" coming. It didn't come. I just can't believe it. My dad is visiting Aus for the first time right now and he literally arrived yesterday - he was there when we found out. How blessed am I?!

No celebration tonight - work tonight LOL BUT I have a 4 day weekend coming up and we're going to celebrate not just together, but also with the whole family AND my dad there too. Again... how lucky am I.

When I applied a year and a half ago without an agent I felt like I was digging my own grave pretty much - not a chance in hell, especially not if we don't hire one of the agents who scared us shitless... but we did it.
