The seperation is getting harder every day as we are not creating shared memories and are both just working and staying at home to save money to make our future bright.
A couple of points i want to make over recent comments here is "do not be scared if you are allocated a senior CO straight away as they need to have a caseload as well". So it is normal. I have also read recently where a Filipino is using a vulgar/insulting username, please reconsider as this is not the type of supporting, knowledge sharing environment that we are trying to create here.
Hi Aussieboy, I hope your visa comes soon, to have to wait that long is grossly unfair and for immigration to treat Australian citizens and there partners in this manner is un Australian.

What did you mean when you said "do not be scared if you are allocated a senior CO straight away as they need to have a caseload as well"

The person who is using the vulgar name, if they used that expression in english would be banned.

Hi All,

I just realized that the surname is not Tagalog. It doesnt look nice and even sound like. I appeal as well to the user that we should not use words or names that is offending.

Often people are allocated to a senior case officer even though their application is straight forward. Each CO/SCO would be required to work on a particular number of applications at one time.

This is a sad thing that a country is worried about what you are going to cost their health system if you have a disease like HIV (not that you do do). They may as well dip you like sheep as in my opinion this is so insulting.
On a positive note the tests are easy, the only thing that occasionally goes wrong is a dirty xray machine and the need to redo the chest xray as they are looking for TB

I took my medicals at Cebu Doctor's too and it took me a day. All tests were done in the morning and then check up with the doctor in the afternoon.

I submitted my Spouse Visa last year and got approved in 6 months. So to all those who ate waiting, good luck...it will come soon

Well normally i look forward to the end of the week as Friday appears to be the day that many visas get approved but alas Easter Friday. Last night on TV i saw that about 2,000 illegal entries have come here in the last (i think it was 12 months) and now the government is considering setting them up in the community instead of the detention centre. I should have bought my fiancee a tinee (small boat) as it would have been quicker and cheaper to get her here.

Hi Aussieboy,

I feel the same too. I jokingly tell my hubby why not I try to be one of those boat people, sounds like so easy on their part to settle in the Land Down Under and for those like us who used the front door seems hard and nerve wrecking.

Hello i have posted a new thread but i also decide to post it here to get some advise from all of you...

Hello fellow filipinos

I am in dilemma right now as i am confused and torn on what to do. I need your advise please.

My situation is, i am a filipina married to australian. We met online on july 2009 and met personally on september 2009. We became bf/gf and serious about the relationship. We see each other every other month because the nature of his work allows him to have a vacation every other month. Since then, we regularly see each other and travel in asia together. I got pregnant with our first son and from there we decided to live together and he bought a house here in bacolod for us. I gave birth on january 2011. Since we are not married yet, we decided to get married and had our civil wedding on march 2011. I got pregnant again and recently gave birth (february 2012). Our first born son is already an australian citizen by decent and had his certificate granted 6 months after he was born and have his passport too. And our second sons' documents were now in process for his citizenship. I have a son also from previous marriage who is now 5.5 yrs old and he is registered under my name since i have separated with my first husband at the time of his birth. My marriage with the ex husband was null and void accdg to him but i have not secured any court decree as i am only 19 then and im sorry for the ignorance but i am not really aware that i have to secure those documents. Accdg to him he was married twice prior to or marriage. Going forward, i married my australian husband and was able to secure marriage license and had our civil wedding. My question now would be, if i will apply for a spouse visa because my husband wants us to move back to his hometown at queensland, i am afraid that if i have to secure a cenomar, it will appear 2 marriages and visa application might be refused because i dont have supporting documents that my previous marriage is null and void (which i not so sure if it is really null and void)and this would mean that my marriage to my australian husband is deemed null and void too due to subsequent marriage on my part right?.... But i dont know why i was issued with marriage license before we had our civil wedding. Do we really need to submit cenomar once i apply for a spouse visa or request for marriage contract at ecensus is enough? I have requested a marriage cert online before and had it when i applied for citizenship of our kids. My husband knows about the history of my marriage before and he knew it was null and void but he didnt knew that it will appear in cenomar and that i dont have any court decree re nullity of that marriage. Should we just apply for a de-facto visa? That means even if i am previously married, we can still live in australia. If you will ask why dont i just inform my husband about it, it is because of my fear that he will turn his back on me, why? We are currently in a situation where he have an affair and his mistress is single and that means no responsibility for him and easier to get her to australia. My husband is torn between me and her and he thinks that the only way he could totally avoid seeing his mistress here in bacolod would be relocating and live in australia with our kids. Im really sad about this because i dont even know what to do. Now that he is torn and confused, im sure he would definitely leave and pack his things and choose his mistress over me and my kids... I know some of you might judge me and would think that i am only after of going there. Honestly, i dont even want to go there in queensland as i have to start my career again. I have established my career here and i do love my job and i only have to sacrifice just to rebuild our relationship and secure my kids a better future and complete family. My husband made up his mind that the only resolution to stop his affair is to move back to oz and start a new life there. Should i go on with applying for spouse visa? Would i be required to submit cenomar? ...or just go with defacto visa since we are living together for more than 3 years now. Please help me. Thanks in advance
