de facto visa if aussie partner has been sponsored himself


My partner has become an Australian permanent resident after the 2 years waiting period. He married an Australian girl but they split up.

My question is what are the chances of granting a de facto visa to me, on the grounds of our relationship, before the 5 years sponsorship limitation period for him elapses?( 2013) We've been living together for 6 months now. I hold a student visa at the moment.

He is not yet divorced.

The second question is, what happens if we fall pregnant? I cannot use hormonal contraception due to health conditions and this is very possible when two people love each other I am just worried about what happens with me in such situation.

Thanks for any help!

Hi there,

There may still be some hope for you and your partner if you had a child together. This could be a reason to allow him to sponsor you before the 5 years is up:

If you have previously sponsored or been sponsored, you may still be permitted to sponsor your partner in compelling circumstances, such as:

•if your previous partner has died or abandoned the relationship leaving young children
•if your relationship with your current partner is long standing (that is, two years or more)
•if you and your current partner have dependent children of your relationship.

However, I strongly suggest you get help from a migration agent if you can afford one. They may be able to give you some more options.

Thanks aussiegirl,

I read a lot of other posts on the forum, some of them saying that there could be a problem if I became pregnant before he gets divorced.

I was thinking of the option of the long standing commitment but I'm worried if the immigration would not make him any problems with his residency if we go for proving that we were together before he divorced( (for those who care - I was not the reason for the split up) and met before he even knew his wife. Looks like it is going to be a long battle for us.
