Exclamation Sponsor for spouse visa

Hi,
I just wanna to ask if I'm eligible to sponsor my wife for spouse visa (offshore) but I only have low income and only work once a week. Am I still eligible to sponsor my wife?
Can my parents sponsor my wife? and Can my parents provide Assurance of support for my wife?

Thanks

Hi Mark,

As long as your are an Australian citizen or resident, you can be a sponsor. If DIAC thinks that your income is not enough to support your partner and she will become a drain on the social security system, they will ask for an Assurance of Support.

This can be done jointly by up to 3 people, and the sposnor does not have to be an assurer. The amount of funds they look for is about 26 to 28K, which is the yearly threshold for Newstart. Take a look at the Centrelink site for more detailed information

ummm yes you are! Question 32 on the 47sp which the applicant fills out asks how much is the value of goods, cash and assets you are bringing into Australia.

my wife is unemployed too, so it doesnt matter if my wife is unemployed and has no money. right??

how about the proof of being together like joint account in paying electricity bills, water and stuff? but we have a lot of photos together and comments from social networks like facebook , etc.

Your CO will want to see that your wife won't be a drain on the taxpayer, so if she has no job/money and you have very little income they may well want an Assurance of Support (AOS).

My income is fine to support my wife when she gets here, so I havent looked too much into AOS's.

Check out the migration regulations 1994, Reg 1.15A to see what "definitions" you should look to fufill.

Comments on facebook may not be of much use.

You will be need to provide Statutory Declarations from others as to how they see your relationship and that they believe you relationship is genuine and ongoing etc.

You really are best to provide as much info as possible. Don't forget that DIAC is not going to look at an Offshore Partner Visa for some months, so you have time to have her here on a Tourist Visa and develop some of that proof.
Note you should lodge the Partner app before the T.V and use the fact that she is not going to overstay because she won't want to jeopardise the partner visa by breaching the T.V.
