From DIY Disaster to Partner Visa Success:
A Journey with Migration Australia
Sarah and Michael
Embarking on the decision to apply for a Partner Visa in Australia can be both exciting and daunting.
Many people attempt the DIY (Do-It-Yourself) approach, hoping to save time and money. Often thinking an agent is a waste of money, or that they can't afford it.
Unfortunately, not every DIY story ends in success.
Today, we'd like to share the real-life experience of one of our clients who initially took the DIY route but ultimately turned to Migration Australia for help, resulting in a successful Partner Visa application through the Tribunal.
Meet Sarah (not her real name), a young woman deeply in love with her Australian partner, Michael. They decided to take the leap and apply for a Partner Visa, hoping to build their life together in Australia. With high hopes and a DIY guide in hand, Sarah and Michael ventured into the complex and convoluted world of Australian immigration law.
The Visa Refusal:
