Smile Applying for a partner visa 820 & 801

I am currently living in Australia under a holiday visa, me and my partner are applying for a partner visa subclass 820 & 801, we are engaged and expecting our first baby (which was not planned but we are both over the moon)

we have been together for 10 months, so we are applying on the grounds of compassionate circumstances, we have filled in all the forms and I believe I have gathered as much personal evidence as possible.
We have lived together for 8 months. We had the 2 months apart as we found out i was pregnant in the UK, when visiting my family, and my partner went straight back to Aus, to start work to save, and i followed once i was out of the first trimester.

Im very nervous about sending the application off as i have not had any assistance with the application and do not want to make any mistakes, if i send off the application, if i am missing anything will immigration contact me? or will they not approve my application?

Also if for some reason my application is not not successful, where do we stand in applying again? we have been told there is no reason why it should not be granted by immigration, but we want to make sure as we have heard you must apply again and pay the cost also!!!

I would just like someones opinion on our chances!

Please help.

Thanks Michelle

Hi Michelle and not to throw a spanner in but if you're planning on the c&c waiver because of your pregnancy, you'll find the wording for that is " you have a child " and I'm pretty sure that will not be stretched to one on the way, so you may want to have a look at a few other things:
. if you have returned here with a WHV but you have evidence of a residing together relationship prior to you going back to the UK, the two months away could be considered a temporary absence and so with what went before added to the ten months will allow you to get to 12+ months, that will put you in a more certain situation.
. If you are in the ACT, NSW, Tasmania or Victoria and have the time, you may want to consider getting your relationship registered as an interim step, another way of waiving the 12 months, Or
. How about you just bring getting married forward.

So a decision to be made there for starters and as for mistakes, if you follow the Checklist in the applying section of information online, use the Booklet #1 as well you should not have a problem and I suggest to people they make up their own Checklist to tick stuff off when they have it in hand to go with their application, taking additional copies of everything and then also do a dummy run with the application too so that way you have a full second copy and that can be your working copy and can have notes or whatever all over it if need be as you sort through it.

If you put in a clear well presented application, if a CO wants further info, you'll usually be asked for it.

If an application gets rejected, it'll usually be for a specific reason and you'll then need to consider what you have to do to be considered eligible and yes, another application means another fee but do what you need to up front and hopefully it'll not come to that.
