Melbourne Lawyers Assisting with Partner Visas

Partner visas allow the partner or spouse of an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen to settle in Australia. Our team at Erskine Rodan and Associates are recognisedas some of Australia’s best immigration lawyers. Our lawyers can help you through the application process to ensure you have a strong application.

Your Partner Visa Options

If you are in a relationship with an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen, you may be able to apply for a partner visa. The relevant visas are:

  • Subclass 820 Partner Temporary Visa and Subclass 801 Partner Permanent Visa. These visas are for married or de facto partner applicants who are onshore. The two visas are usually lodged as a single application, with the permanent visa granted (if successful) after two years
  • Subclass 309 Partner Temporary Visa and Subclass 100 Partner Permanent Visa. These visas are for married or de facto partner applicants who are offshore. The two visas are usually lodged as a single application, with the permanent visa granted (if successful) after two years
  • Subclass 300 Prospective Marriage Visa. This temporary visa is for fiancé/fiancéeapplicants who are offshore

It is important for partner visas that you submit an application with strong and relevant evidence of your relationship. A well-prepared, decision-ready application is not only more likely to be granted, but is likely to be granted sooner as well.

Some of the issues our lawyers regularly assist clients with include:

  • proving, or obtaining exemptions from, the requirement for de facto couples to have lived together for 12 months.
  • applications for official registration of relationships.
  • waiving the two year waiting period for permanent residency.
  • same sex couples.
  • health waivers.
  • submissions on character issues.
  • relationship breakdowns and domestic violence.

Applicants should be aware that there are several factors that, while potentially crucial to a successful application, are not widely known or published on the Department of Immigration’s website.Our lawyers are also registered migration agents. What separates our team from non-lawyer migration agents is our expertise in relation to the complex nature of the immigration law, and how it affects you.
