Successful Subclass 820 Partner Visa

The Applicant and Sponsor came to Immigration Solutions Lawyers (ISL) seeking direction with a Subclass 820 Partner Visa. The Applicant had arrived in Australia on a temporary student visa several years earlier. Within this period the Applicant and Sponsor met and entered into a relationship. The couple developed a strong emotional bond as the relationship continued. The couple became both emotionally and financially reliant on one another over the course of their relationship.

At this point the Applicant and Sponsor sought the help of the legal team at ISL to lodge their Subclass 820 Onshore Partner Visa as the Applicant had overstayed her visa and was unlawful at the time of lodgement.

ISL provided extensive submissions and supporting evidence to establish that the Applicant’s and the Sponsor’s circumstances at the time of lodgement should be considered compelling and the schedule 3 criteria waived.

The Applicant was found to have overstayed her visa due to her family’s financial difficulties in their home country due to unavoidable circumstances. During this process ISL was able to provide a number of statutory declarations and media articles supporting the claims of the Applicant. ISL was also able to provide evidence that the Sponsor was dealing with severe psychological issues supported by medical documentation which were outlined in our detailed submission to the Department of Immigration.

ISL was able to obtain a positive outcome for the Applicant and Sponsor with the grant of a Subclass 820 Partner Visa after remaining in Australia unlawfully for a number of years.

Immigration Solutions Lawyers is one of the leading immigration law firms in Australia. Headed by managing director and principal lawyer Anne O’Donoghue, the firm has over 22 years of experience. Schedule 3 waivers are becoming increasingly harder to obtain and therefore, ISL are proud of our high success rate. The legal team at ISL are experienced in dealing with complicated matters and will do their best obtain a positive outcome for each and every case.
