Rose and Emily’s Journey – Australian Partner Visa

At Ten Heads Immigration, we take immense pride in the success stories of our clients. Today, we are thrilled to share the journey of Rose and Emily*, a same-sex couple who overcame significant challenges to secure their Australian Partner Visa.

Initial Challenges and Seeking the Right Support

Rose and Emily’s journey began with a less-than-encouraging consultation with a different lawyer. They were informed that obtaining a Partner Visa would be incredibly difficult due to their circumstances. The lawyer also hinted that being in a same-sex relationship would be an issue. However, Rose and Emily decided to seek a second opinion and came to us at Ten Heads Immigration.

Strategic Approach and Detailed Preparation

After listening carefully to Rose and Emily’s situation, we identified the key obstacle: their de facto relationship was less than the 12-month old as is the basic requirement to apply for Partner Visa. However, we knew that registering their relationship with a state government could make Rose eligible for an on-shore Partner Visa application. We also explained that same-sex relationships are accepted in Australia, and they would not face problems with the Partner Visa application as long as the other criteria were met.

Next, we focused on gathering comprehensive evidence to demonstrate the authenticity of their relationship. We collected and organized documents from both Rose and Emily, ensuring every piece of evidence—from joint financial accounts to social proof—was included. Our aim was to leave no stone unturned in proving their genuine relationship.

Application Submission and Outcome

In January 2022, we lodged Rose and Emily’s Partner Visa application with confidence, knowing that we had prepared a robust and compelling case. Throughout the process, we maintained constant communication with Rose and Emily, providing updates and addressing any concerns they had.

We were delighted when, in June 2022, the Immigration Department granted the Partner Visa—less than six months after the initial application. This swift approval was a testament to our thorough preparation and strategic approach.
