Partner Visas

Partner Visas

To be eligible for all partner visa categories in Australia, one of the partners must be either an Australian Citizen, Australian Permanent Resident or an eligible New Zealand Citizen. Australia recognises de facto relationships for the grant of partner visas. This means that a couple does not have to be married to be eligible for these visas. However, generally the de facto relationship is required to be a minimum of 12 months duration unless there are compelling circumstances. This 12 month duration does not apply if the couple is married. If you and your partner have met in person but does not satisfy the de facto relationship criteria, you may be eligible for a prospective marriage visa with a pathway to apply for the partner visa.

Our Law Practice specialises in partner visas. We have assisted many couples realise their dream of migrating to Australia to be with their partners. We can assess your circumstances, point out the weaknesses of your case and assist you with making a strong and decision ready application.

A partner visa is an important step in your relationship. A visa refusal could mean that you are separated from your partner indefinitely. Seek professional assistance from our practice to ensure that you do not risk refusal and submit a decision ready application.

If your relationship is less than 12 months and is of the view that you may not be eligible, think again! We have a wealth of experience assisting applicants who have not lived together for 12 months.
