    Social Work aasw process

    Really helpful and thanks for your insight. I'll look into everything you've mentioned cheers and good luck to your friend
  2. Hi all, Does anyone have any experience in this? particularly in the Perth area but can relocate I am of the impression that you would have to work for non profits if you don't have AASW yet (in process of obtaining).
  3. Hi all, Really want to bring my partner over (have specified in initial student application that this may be the case). What counts as proof if we don't share finances? Are the 12 month rules lenient?

    Social Work aasw process

    Hi all, I'm asking on behalf of my partner who is a UK social worker and wants to join me in Australia (I'm on 500 student visa) so any insight/advice is welcome. 1. Is anyone familiar with social Work opportunities with non profits etc that don't require aasw (she'll be looking at these roles on a whv while simultaneously waiting/applying for aasw). Especially roles in our near Perth that can be of commutable distance. 2. For the aasw assessment would 65 points be enough or is that the bare minimum and it'll still be difficult for approval? 3. Can you switch to a 189 from a whv within the country?

    Advice needed! Don't let them separate us :(

    Okay just to clarify I can do that whenever right? Also yeah might also go down the route of her just getting whv then beginning the process of skilled 189.

    Thanks for your reply. Understood. Yeah that's what I mean by adding her as a secondary although it said on the home affairs page there needs to be evidence of us being 1y+? So I'm thinking do the whv then add her in after building de facto status or wtv it is called.

    Ah gotya. If I were to apply for de facto would I be able to add that into my visa somehow at a later date? How do I go about amending the visa I would already have? I'm assuming there will be a fee?
  8. Hi all, I'm after some advice. The situation is this. My partner is a British citizen currently working as a social worker and I am about to start a masters in February in Perth. As it stands I'm aware that these are our options: 1. De facto visa and bring her over with my student visa (we haven't been together with proof for 1+ year and will be very difficult to show proof since we don't share any finances etc) 2. She can get a 189 skilled worker visa but that would require registration with AASW (social work) and that would take up to a year. 3. She comes on a working holiday visa and starts the AASW application when she gets here. I am open to absolutely any advice. We just want to be together but don't necessarily have to be in the same city in Australia (I'm not mega familiar with but have heard of region restricted visas?)
