Overcoming Schedule 3 Criteria Requirements

The Applicant and Sponsor came to Immigration Solutions Lawyers seeking help with a Subclass 820 Onshore Partner visa application. The Applicant sought the assistance of Immigration Solutions due to trouble he had experienced with his previous visa application.

The Sponsor and Applicant met in Australia while the Applicant was traveling on a Subclass 456 visa. The couple soon entered into a committed and genuine relationship and came to rely on one another both emotionally and financially.

The Subclass 820 visa is designed for individuals who are married to or in a de facto relationship with an Australian Citizen, permanent resident or resident eligible New Zealand Citizen.

Upon collecting evidence for the Applicants submission, Immigration Solutions discovered that the Applicant was on a bridging visa and would be required to lodge a Schedule 3 argument.

Our legal team determined that the Applicants past protection visa did not meet the definition of a refugee under the UN Convention. However there were substantial human rights abuses and these issue were addressed comprehensively in the Schedule 3 Argument. We were able to provide extensive material on compelling reasons as to why the Schedule 3 requirements did not apply for the Partner visa in this circumstance and a successful Subclass 820 Partner visa was granted.
