Split up on a TR visa


I'm in a very sticky situation at the moment. I came here with my Oz boyfriend in Nov 2009, I came on a WH visa. In June 2010 I applied and granted a TP defacto visa. In November this year I will have been in Australia for 2 years.

Me and my boyfriend are having problems and thinking of splitting up, I have made a life in Australia and DO NOT wanna leave at all.

What's my options?
Is it true that if you have been in Australia for 4 years you can apply for permanent residency?

Hi there,

It's possible to still get PR after a break up, but you have to proove you have strong ties to Australia e.g a job, family friends etc.

Your partner has to notify DIAC of the break up since he is legally required to. I think you need to ask DIAC what options you have at this point. You may also want to consider seeing a migration agent for some advice.
