  1. Hi all, I am a British citizen with Australian PR. It was granted in 2015. In 2016 I returned to the UK & have been living in a defecto relationship with my British partner since. Before this I was in Australia a total of 6 years. After 2 years in Uk I really want to go home.... so we are looking at our options for visas for him. His profession (software engineer/developer) is on the skilled visa list & it was always our plan to apply for 189 however we stupidly kept putting it off & now with all the recent changes to the skilled migration route it just seems they are making it harder and longer to come in via this path. So we have started looking at partner visa options. We meet all the requirements in terms of our relationship, however I am concerned that I do not meet requirements as a Sponser. I’ve read on the IMMI site that to meet requirements of a sponsor id have to usually live in Australia, which I haven’t done for 2 years now so I’m not sure how I can achieve this without returning without him. Which financially & emotionally would be very difficult to do especially for the length of time these applications take to process. Has anyone else got any experience of applying in this way? ? Thankyou for any advice!
