By Nicoleojaghloo.Hi, I am sponsoring my husband for the 309/100 spouse visa. We are living in Iran at present. We have all the documents needed. I met him in Australia when he was on bridging visa E. He was a refugee. He brought me to his country, Iran and I thought it was a better idea to apply offshore. He is yet to obtain his health and police check. He had been in Australia since 2012, and we have been together since January 2016. We married in Australia and here in Iran. My question is, do you think he has a better chance of being granted the visa due to the fact that he lived in Australia for 5 years already, and we both have documents showing the same address we lived at, proving our relationship.?. Also, with Iran in the news lately, do you think Australian immigration would be bias ?. Thanks in advance for any advice. Nicole.
By BIG SURHi there, just wondering if anyone has any knowledge on divorce or annulment in Australia please?
My friend married an Australian citizen in November 2016, she is here on a bridging visa, pending a decision being made for student visa.
They separated just after 6 months together, no spouse visa applications were submitted.
He says he can have marriage cancelled or arrange divorce and claims if he applies to have it cancelled she will not be allowed to visit Australia again.
Surely the only option is wait 12 months and apply for divorce?
If anyone can give any help it would be much appreciated.
