Wedding Date Pushed Back

Hello everyone


It's been one month since the papers were lodged off and still no feedback from a CO which is cool at this point as it looks like my wedding scheduled for May 1, 2015 might have to be pushed back to November '15. I have no objection as I need all the time I can get to have as much $$$ stacked up as possible and Visa probably won't be granted until Feb or March but if I luck up and it gets granted earlier than expected this could be a little tricky. So, to all my ausforum vets and newbies...

1) Do the 9 months start 1nce I get there or does it start once the PMV is granted?
2) In order to get the Partner Visa....will they have to see the ceremony if our wedding is over the 9 month deadline or can they just accept a marriage certificate/bank account statements and history of our relationship? (We were thinking of getting married legally at the "city hall" or whatever they call it in Aus 1st then possibly doing the ceremony.)

I appreciate your time and feedback folks. Hope everyone enjoys the weekend.

-Michael

1/ 9 months starts from the grant date

2/ for marriage proof they just require the marriage certificate (in most cases lol). They don't care where you get married as long as you marry within 9 months.

We didn't supply a marriage certificate and got approved. It was probably a rare case. We were still waiting on it as bdm had a backlog from system issues.

As far as I know the 9 months starts from date of visa grant. Mish is right about marriage date. Do it within the visa validity period otherwise you will breaking one of the conditions of the visa. If your wedding party is going to go over time, do a registry office wedding first. You will need to give the registry office a bit over a month's notice to comply with its regulations.

Regards

Thanks for your help Jeremy. I had figured the "registry" option would be legit I just wanted to be sure.

Hello Michael,

As the previous members say, the counting starts once the visa is granted. About the wedding it doesn't really matter if it was a small or lavish one. As you say you would want a proper ceremony at a later date. That is totally fine. The requirement is to get married within the 9-month period. For as long as you got married then you should be okay.
