Hey guys, this is the situation.. My girl came here on a tourist visa (3 month) and extended it. She doesnt have a 'no further stay' though. We are planning to apply for the partner de facto visa.
A few things, I'm wondering how/if these will affect our application:
> She cant get a police check in time before applying (is this critical to submit with the initial application?)
>She is 18, I am 20, and as I have been overseas for a long time I dont have a job at the moment. Is it okay to use one of my family members as the sponsor?
> Once she applies for the defacto partner visa, will she be allowed to stay here 'in status' until her visa is either allower or denied?
