How to get Australian Spouse Visas?
This was a radio interview I had a few years ago, but the information is still current except for the planned changes. The changes were never implemented. As it stands today, it is still necessary to lodge the visa application first and then the sponsorship application.
The discussion focuses on threshold requirements to lodge a Partner Visa application, that the process is a two stage application process; Provisional Visa and after two years of lodging application, Permanent Visa, what happens if the relationship breaks down before the permanent visa has been granted. This also discusses the consequences of family violence.
