Hi every1 i am new to the forum and in abit of a Frantic atm...My husband is from Turkey and applied for a spouse visa back in late december...all is great...they are just waiting on an 'Assurance of Support' application put through then theyl grant his visa if the Assurers get approved....Now my Brother and I have planned to Co-Support...i have spoken to centerlink to see if i am able to be an assurer of my husband and have my brother assure aswell due to me not earning enough...but my yearly income plus my brothers yearly income is over what they have requested...So my question is...am i able to be an assurer of my Husband?? the interview is on monday and my brother and i have everything ready...im just scared that il get there and have them tell me that i cant be an assurer...it just says nowhere on the application that i cant be and i spoke to centerlink and they said it shouldnt be a problem... but i just to be made sure....

I suppose it is a bit unusual that you are a sponsor for an applicant where an AoS is required and then you put yourself in as a co assurer but seeing as it is the income level they make the decision on and you and your brother together are above the level required, it could be acceptable, especially if Centrelink have said OK as it is something that is more in their court than Immi.
Have Centrelink supplied a statement saying they are satisfied with that for I think something like that is what Immi will be looking for.
You could also contact the CO before going in for the interview just in case they take a different view and you need to line up someone else.

Yes i am the sponsor for my husband...im a hairdresser and only 23 and stil at home..so they saw that i dont earn enough and asked for an AOS...and as it says no where on the application or anywhere on the net for that fact that the sponsor cant be an assurer..i thought i could go into joint assurance with my brother...and both our yearly incomes add up to over 40,000 where they are looking at 39,054...i did mention that it was my husband i would be assuring when i called up centerlink to make the appointment...i was just wondering if any1 else has been an assurer of who they are sponsoring? i dont really have any1 else i can ask..hence why i am doing it...

I was sent a request for Assurance of Support also for my husband, and I earnt just under the threshold to support us both as I work part time and study full time. My mum was able to provide the support for me just on her own. They accepted it no problem. Just get your brother to provide the support for him if he's comfortable with it

Oh I just re-read your message about the amount -- I think it was somewhere around $28,000?? It's supposed to equal the minimum payments that Centrelink will give you.

39,054 is the amount centerlink gave me...but ive read on here and everybody has said different amounts so who knows...i earn roughly 25,000 a year a year or bit more but my payslips immigration looked at at the time were really crap coz id just gotten back home from turkey and had to build up clientel at work again so crap work hours...but also turkey is a highrisk country so i guess thats also why they requested an AOS..

You will find on the 40SP form a statement thus:
Quote:
Assurance of Support
After your fiancé(e) or partner has lodged their partner
category visa application, the department may ask them to
request another person to provide an Assurance of Support
(AoS) on their behalf. This would be done if your fiancé(e)
or partner is assessed as being a potentially high user of the
Australian welfare system during their first 2 years in Australia,
or the 2 years following grant of your partner’s visa if your
partner is applying in Australia. As well as your fiancé(e) or
partner’s circumstances, your ability to support your fiancé(e)
or partner (and any other dependants included in the
application) may be taken into account by the decision-maker
in deciding whether to request an AoS. Some of the
information given by you on this form may be used for this.
Just hope there will not be a sticking point on the bit in bold and hence the suggestion you talk to the CO before going in and if you need to arrange someone else to co assure, you at least have time to do it.

If you have a look at the Fact Sheet 34 there is a link to the Centre Link site and they may have re-organised their valuing for the AoS for on the site under A for AoS you will find Assurance of Support and reference to ammounts being based on Newstart allowances and also number of people in an Immi application.
