Im on a 12 month visa. Im now married to my PR husband.
Hi Mark. Im currently on a 12 months visitor visa which expires on january 1st. My partner is a PR of Australia..for the last 47 years. We married 2 months ago..and I want to apply for my PR visa. Im currently living with my husband in Orange NSW. Where on earth do I start?!!!
Hi Linda :)
To avoid me reinventing the wheel, take a look at the appropriate page on the Australian migration website here. This includes a pretty good overview of the steps you would need to follow to qualify for a spouse/partner visa.
Once you have had a chance to digest, feel free to pop back with any questions and I'll be happy to help where I can.
All the best
Thanks Mark. Having read all the info you gave me... is it wiser to go through a lawyer... migration expert..or do it alone? I cant help thinking its going to be better with expert help. Do you do this???
Hi Linda, doing it by yourself is more than doable although it might take a little longer as you will need to take a little time to read the documents and guidelines etc. (For info, when I moved down under I did it myself so it is doable) ;)
Although I am more than happy to help where I can, I am not a registered agent So I can only give general advice (+ links to appropriate official resources).
