Hi experts.

Looking for advice for my son.

He has been with his partner on and off for over twelve months, but no continuously for 12 months.  He has not registered his relationship.

They have recently announced that they are now expecting a child.

Would this pass the "compelling and compassionate circumstances" so he can apply before the 12 months?

Many thanks as usual to this forum.

Doubt it. Though it might sound harsh, at present all he has is a pregnant girlfriend.

Thanks again Nemesis 

His partner is an Australian citizen and so the baby will be too.

Would you think his compelling circumstances changes once the baby is born ?

Nope, same rationale as before. Otherwise people would be having Australian babies left right and centre just to stay in the country. Doesn’t work like that.

I would recommend that your son obtain professional advice on planning a viable visa pathway forward, based on his specific circumstances.

Second hand advice from his father, based on second hand advice from a public forum, based on very scant details, is probably not ideal.

You say he has "been with' his partner for 12 months.  To qualify for a partner visa, they must have been in a de facto relationship for over 12 months.   De facto means the equivalent of marriage.   They have to prove things like living together, sharing living expenses, shared finances and also prove the date their relationship became de facto.  The period when they were dating does not count for anything, and the baby makes no difference.

I agree with Raul. It's time to pay for proper advice.

Thank you all for your swift advice.

They are seeking guidance from a migration agency and have recently registered their relationship with the appropriate authority to start this process.
