It’s going to be a problem for those who lie on their EOI

It is not a lie if you are in Australia and your partner to be is overseas - you are not legally married and you are not in a defacto spouse relationship - award 10 points.

day after getting PR, you can fly out ant marry your truelove and lodge partner visa - there is zero risk with this as long as not married/defacto before 189 was granted

Regards

Defacto means you have been in an exclusive relationship for at least 1 year, does not mean you have to live together, otherwise no one would get partner visa. It's hard to believe (while still possible) that you get in a new relationship and marry in between invite and grant.

That’s exactly what I am trying to say. If someone indeed meets a soulmate (if you want to call it that) after invitation or during application process, and if that person wishes to have that partner migrate, that person will have to prove that the relationship is genuine. And if the time passed between invitation / application is not substantial, it is going to be difficult to prove that the person is in genuine relationship. I have had my partner visa refused due to not meeting the 1 year relationship requirement.

You are not getting this.

You may have had a long-term girlfriend/boyfriend and you decide to delay your marriage until after you get your 189 visa to make sure you score the 10 points - no problem. It could be an arranged marriage and you wait until you have your 189 before immediately getting married.

You can be disqualified for having a de-facto partner even if you have lived together less than 1 month - 1 year co-habitation does not define a de facto spouse relationship. For some visas you are required to be in a de facto spouse relationship for at least 12 months 9or have a registered relationship.

Regards

Tony

I don’t think you are getting it. I am purely talking about people who lie on their application. The scenarios you mention is not lying.

I'm somewhat in a similar scenario...and I had also posted a query in the forum regarding this. These doubts are due to the point system changes post 16th Nov. Earlier it wasn't so as you didn't get extra points for being single.

I think it may be best to declare the relationship as engaged in case you know that you will most likely get married...or probably get court married first and apply with the spouse.

What do you guys think?

I am currently 'single' and as a corollary to this topic, if in case

I submit EOI as single, get an invite, and before getting Visa grant , I get married, I change the EOI and get 10 spouse points ( assuming skilled n competent partner so EOI points won't change), will the assessing officer at the time of Grant take into consideration, the date of effect as I have changed the underlying information in EOI? or as the points won't change, I still get Grant?

Any inputs will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi

You can only get 10 points for your spouse (who has required English and required skills assessment) if that spouse is included in your EOI and makes a combined application with you. Due to the regulations, it is impossible to score these points if a partner is added later
