Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Partner Visa Case Study : Partner Sent To Jail, Can I Still Apply?

Partner Visa Case Study : Partner Sent To Jail, Can I Still Apply?

Partner Visa Case Study : My Partner Is In Jail, Is It Possible to Apply Partner Visa?

In this Partner Visa Casae Study we will give you a detailed explanation about one of rare occassion of Partner Visa cases.

So you’re ready to apply for your partner visa and unfortunately your partner is sent to jail. What happens now? Can you still apply?

Depending on the severity of the offence committed and the length of Jail time you may still be able to apply for your Partner visa, whilst your partner, the sponsor is in jail.

However, if your Partner has been convicted of a crime that is considered a relative offence they may no longer be eligible to be a sponsor, meaning that your Partner visa application would be invalid and refused.

For those whose Partners have already served Prison time, there is also the chance that your visa application may be denied, again depending on the severity of the crime, and the amount of jail time served.

This is also the case for those who have been sentenced to the following:

  • Death
  • Imprisonment for life
  • A term of imprisonment of 12 months or more
  • 2 or more terms of imprisonment, where the total of those terms is 12 months or more.

The department of Home Affairs (formerly known as the Department of immigration and Border Protection) takes this matter very seriously and has a number of rules in place for sponsors when applying for an Australian Partner Visa.

These rules are put in place to protect the visa applicants as well as the Australian community.

These rules require all sponsors of partner visa applications and prospective marriage visa applications to provide Australian or foreign police checks to the department when requested, and they must consent to the department disclosing their convictions for relevant offences to the visa applicant.

A relevant offence is an offence against a law, either in Australia or overseas, involving:

  • Violence, including murder, assault, sexual assault and the threat of violence
  • Harassment, molestation, intimidation or stalking
  • The breach of an apprehended violence order, or a similar order
  • Firearms or other dangerous weapons
  • People smuggling
  • Human trafficking, slavery-like practices (including forced marriage), kidnapping or unlawful confinement
  • Attempting to commit and/or aiding and abetting any of these offences

If a sponsor has convictions for any of the above offences and is considered to have a significant criminal record, the department will refuse the visa unless there are compelling reasons not to.

The following factors will be considered by the department of Home Affairs when reviewing the application:

  • The length of time since the sponsor completed the sentence for the relevant offence
  • The best interest of any children of the sponsor or primary visa applicant
  • The length of the relationship between the sponsor and primary visa applicant.

In short, the Australian Department of Home Affairs has implemented these rules to ensure the safety of its visa applicants, dependent children and the wider Australian community.
