Australian citizens, permanent residents and eligible New Zealand citizens are able to sponsor certain family members to join them in Australia. The laws around sponsoring family are complicated and often subjective, as in the case of partner visa applications where the Department of Immigration and Border Protection must be satisfied that an applicant’s and sponsor’s relationship is ‘genuine and continuing’ in order for a visa to be granted.
It is essential to obtain clear and correct advice about whether your family member is likely to qualify for a visa, the necessary evidence that must be provided in support of any familial relationship and what is involved in the visa application process in order to avoid lengthy delays in the processing of an application or negative outcomes.
The Australian Family and Spouse Visas, aim to reunite immediate and extended family members with their eligible Australian relatives and spouses. To be sponsored under the Australian Family Migration stream, the close family relative or spouse must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen and at least 18 years old. Depending on the specific circumstances of the applicant, there are a number of temporary and permanent family visas offered. This Is Australia will guide you through the various options and process, to ensure you are a successful applicant.

Our Immigration Lawyers are able to ensure that your partner visa application is decision ready and meets all the requirements for a speedy visa process. Our Lawyers have years of experience dealing with complex partner visa applications and can guide you to ensure your application is not delayed and is successful.
Lodging an online partner visa application is not difficult and can be done in perhaps 1 hour. However, unless the information and supporting documents that you provide are correct, comprehensive and extensive, there will be high a chance of visa refusal. Unfortunately, partner visa case officers are not very flexible and always require significant amount of evidence to be satisfied that a relationship is genuine and ongoing.
Our Immigration Lawyers are able to advise you on the type of evidence that you can prepare to make a decision ready application. Our expert lawyers can also inform you if you are barred from sponsoring someone or point out any other weaknesses that your case may have.
