Never too late to make disclosure voluntarily in a visa application. The importance of transparency and obtaining a full immigration history under freedom of information request.

The 820 Partner Visa is the First Step to Permanent Migration.

The Applicant and Sponsor came to Immigration Solutions Lawyers seeking assistance with a Subclass 820 Partner visa on the basis of their continuing relationship.

A Subclass 820 partner visa is designed for Individuals who are married too or in a de facto relationship with an Australian Citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand Citizen. Applicants can apply for a Subclass 820 so they can remain in Australia while a decision is made regarding their Subclass 801 permanent visa, this process can take up to approximately two years from the date the application is lodged.

The Applicant had arrived in Australia on a Subclass 417 Working Holiday visa years earlier. During this time the Applicant and Sponsor met and entered into genuine and committed relationship. The couple soon commenced cohabitation and became both emotionally and financially reliant on one another sharing household expenses such as their utility bills, rent, and weekly groceries.

While preparing for the visa lodgement Immigration Solutions were able to provide compelling evidence that the Applicant and Sponsor were in a genuine de facto relationship and had registered their relationship in Australia. While preparing the application the team at Immigration Solutions found a record of the Applicant receiving a warning regarding a criminal offence in his youth. Immigration Solutions were able to complete a character submission discussing the issue addressed in the warning and that it was a once off offence not to be repeated.

Immigration Solutions were successful in securing the grant of a Subclass 820 visa for the Applicant.
