Anyone else in the same situation?

    Hi all,

     

    Just wondering if anyone else is in or has been in the same situation. Me and Pete (Django) have lived toether for 9 years in what the visa calls a defacto relationship. Pete has never got a divorce from his exwife, mainly due to the cost.

     

    I have just been filling in the visa papers and they ask what his marital status is, does he put married, or in defacto relationship. Does it matter that he is not divorced or does he need to get divorced first. If he does have to get divorced first it will add even more time onto our leaving this place. I have emailed the immi.gov.au web site but not had a reply as yet.

     

    Hope someone can help

     

    Thanks

    Tracey

    Hello

     

    We are using four corners agency and i was in the same position they said for me to get a devorce as soon as poss as the Aus Gov dont like it and it would complicated things as i have been with my partner 10 years and they will want to know why we never married, Hope this helps.

    Hi Tracey

    That is a tricky one. Can't offer any advice but hope it doesn't hold up the process too much for you.

    Hi tracy, tell Pete to nip down to the soliciters and dig deep into those deep deep pockets and get a legal separation letter, then start a divorse procedure, will help if the other half wants it too...!!!! Stu
