Migrant Women: When Enough is Enough. The family Violence provisions of the Migration Act are a protection for women.

The Applicant arrived in Australia on a Subclass 575 Student visa. During her time in Australia the Applicant met the Sponsor and entered into a genuine and committed relationship. The Applicants student visa was close to expiry when the Sponsor suggested lodging a combined Partner (Temporary) (Class UK) (Subclass 820) and Partner (Residence) (Class BS) (Subclass 801) visa.

The Applicant soon after received the successful visa grant of her Subclass 820 Partner visa based on her de facto relationship with an Australian Citizen.

However after the grant of her visa there was a break down in the relationship due to emotional and psychological abuse at the hands of the Sponsor.

Upon leaving the relationship the Applicant contacted Immigration Solutions regarding notifying the department regarding the change in in circumstances. Immigration Solutions informed the Department that the applicant ceased cohabitating with her partner and a non-judicially determined family violence claim was put forward.

The team at Immigration Solutions prepared extensive submissions and evidence in support of the Applicant and her claims to family violence.

Immigration Solutions were able to fully brief the Applicant on the interview process and expectations the Applicant should have going into such an interview. The team were able to stress to the Applicant that she gave an honest and transparent account of the family violence which had occurred.

During this process the team at Immigration Solutions completed two submissions. The first discussing the genuineness of the relationship and the second submission for family violence.

Immigration Solutions were able to provide evidence supporting the claim of family violence and therefore the Applicant was still entitled to the next stage of the visa process (permanent residency) under the guideline of the Subclass 801.

Immigration Solutions was successful in securing the Subclass 801 Permanent Resident visa for the Applicant. She is now a permanent resident of Australia.
