    Australian Partner Visa Secrets - Getting Your Ducks in a Row

    Australian Partner Visa Secrets - Getting Your Ducks in a Row

    In Episode 12, our Senior Immigration Lawyer, Martin Salvo, looks at 3 different topics that will help you on your Australian Partner Visa journey.


    The 5 Pieces of the Partner Visa Puzzle


    There are 5 pieces of the puzzle that everyone seeking an approved Australian Partner Visa needs to check off before they submit their application. These are broken down into: 


    Conceptual Pieces (the WHAT):

    a. Awareness of the law 


    b. Understanding the legal criteria 






    Practical Pieces (the HOW):

    a. Correctly completed DHA required forms 


    b. Comprehensive, organised and optimised evidence 


    c. On-going attention and support


    Inconvenient Truths


    When you begin your Australian Partner Visa journey, oftentimes clients are focused on the positives and the end result, which is fantastic! But today we are dishing out some of the realities about the Australian Partner Visa process, so that you can understand what you must overcome outside of the legal criteria and required forms in order to get your Australian Partner Visa approved. 


    Getting Your Ducks In A Row


    What do ducks have to do with your Australian Partner Visa? When we say this, what we mean is getting organised as far in advance in your relationship timeline as possible. 


    There are two moments in time that your Australian Partner Visa Application is going to be assessed on - Time of Application (ToA) and Time of Decision (ToD). 


    With current processing times ToD is unlikely to be an issue, as during this period a couple will naturally strengthen their facts and their evidence as they have been together for a longer period of time. Where couples CAN run into problems is ToA. As soon as your application is submitted, it’s time stamped and that is your ToA, and when the Case Officer does eventually pick up your application, they will go back in time and look at what relationship evidence you had in place at that ToA. This is why it is most important to start gathering your relationship evidence as early in your relationship timeline as you can.

    Australian Partner Visas - Legal Terminology: Spouse vs De Facto

    Australian Partner Visas - Legal Terminology: Spouse vs De Facto

    In this episode, we get back to basics and look at the legal terminology used to determine what is deemed to be a SPOUSAL RELATIONSHIP and what is deemed to be DE FACTO RELATIONSHIP. 


    When a case officer picks up your Australian Partner Visa application, you may be surprised to know that they are not assessing it against the requirements outlined on the Department of Home Affairs website. They are required, at law, to ensure that your application meets the criteria set out by the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) (the Act) and the Migration Regulations 1994 (Cth) (the Regulations).


    So it makes the most sense that we cut straight to the chase and look at what the law actually says.


    The definition of spouse and de facto are close to identical.


    Both types of couples must prove (on paper) that at the Time of Application: 


    They are married to each other under a marriage that is valid for the purposes of the Act (spouse only);They have a mutual commitment to a shared life to the exclusion of all others;The relationship between them is genuine and continuing;They live together or do not live apart on a permanent basis; andThey are not related by family (de facto only).

    You are probably thinking “well, what can I provide to show the case officer that I meet the above criteria?” 


    This is where the Regulations come to the rescue! 


    The Regulations set out that the case officer must consider all of the circumstances of the relationship, including:


    The financial aspects of the relationshipThe nature of the household;The social aspects of the relationship; and The nature of commitment the couple have for each other. 

    Here at Salvo Migration we refer to these as the FOUR PILLARS, and understanding these four aspects are the key to preparing your best possible Australian Partner Visa Application.
