It is no secret that wedding as a platform is widely being utilized to gain residence position by individuals from outside Down Under. Some new cases reportedly show that several people have lost the validity of their permits since the relationships that they might have shown before to gain a visa have been found to bogus and wrong.
The figure of permits made available since 1990 has headed north by 100% even while the figure during 2012-13 is close-to 50,000. Existing numbers show that unlawful migrants may reach a rough figure of 60,000 overseas citizens. Of course, despite the fact that the calculated guess accounting for fake, via marriage/cohabitation, has not been proffered, even in case 50% of the given number is taken into consideration, then it may be more than adequate to colonize a little township.
It is crucial to realize the rightful choices of moving to the Kangaroo Land, prior to embarking on doubtful manners only to find oneself in deep trouble later on. Canberra has come down hard on prohibited aliens, who gained entry via the spousal path.
As per available information, partner movement to the foreign destination may be gained through these groups, namely, Spouse, Defacto, Prospective spouse (fiancé), and Interdependent (same sex associations). The said categories could be given temporary residence rights for a period of two years, as trial time. At the conclusion of the time-frame–and on the production of proof of the continuing co-habitation–permanent residence status may be offered.
Defacto makes clear the association when the male and female stay together in spousal association, minus tying the knot. The national laws of Australia states that defacto association denotes one year of living together as a lawfully wedded husband and wife. As in such situations wedding has not been duly performed, proof as to co-habitation or living jointly has to be provided.
Potential spouse denotes a fiancé and sponsorship for her with the clause that matrimony has to occur inside nine months of arrival–and if the said does not happen–the fiancé has to depart from the nation. Interdependent makes easy sponsoring of the same sex mates to shift to the country. Detailed proof of such association and co-habitation has to be duly furnished.
A provision for illegitimate spouse waiver is also there. Individuals–who have overstayed–do not have a right to file a petition for a legal permit. But, such irregularity in spousal relationship may be duly managed, in case robust proof may be furnished that co-habitation has been for not less than two years, and/or the parties have kids who have become the nationals of Down Under by birth. The same would also denote that no prior permit petition has been dismissed for any additional cause.
