Australia family immigration - partner visas: why use help?
Applying for any type of visa, whether immigrant or non-immigrant, entails much more than simply filling out routine immigration forms. Most questions on the application forms are designed to reflect certain aspects of immigration law. Even those that may seem straightforward are actually designed to elicit information that may relate to complex laws and regulations. Incorrect or inconsistent answers to any of these questions could easily hurt chances of obtaining a visa for your loved one to immigrate to your country.
The process of obtaining a prospective marriage visa or spousal visa can turn into a very unpleasant experience for you and your loved one. Certain legal implications may arise from the documents you present to the immigration department as part of your application. Likewise, statements made during a marriage or fiancee visa interview or other information included with your application, while seemingly inconsequential, may result in a delay or denial of your application.
Many other factors, such as inaccurately completed application forms or lack of evidence, can cause long delays in processing times. Some cases are returned to the applicant due to an error or omission in the immigration forms or supporting documents. You may not know if you have made a mistake, even a critical one, until weeks or months later, when your fiancee or spouse gets her visa application rejected during the interview stage. Having to start the visa process over again, you will have wasted not only time but also money, because the visa application filing (processing) fee is non-refundable, regardless of the outcome of your application. From our experience helping clients whose previous self-prepared applications have been rejected, we know the emotional toll a rejection can take on you and your fiancee or spouse. Such a negative experience could be particularly devastating for your loved one, and she may conclude that any future attempts to obtain a visa would lead to a similar outcome.
It is critical that your fiancee or spouse completely understands what to expect during the visa application process and, most importantly, during the personal visa interview with a migration officer at the Embassy. Many people who try to go through the immigration process alone face serious problems at this stage. A very large percentage of fiancee and marriage visas are either denied or delayed because there is a request for additional documentation. Most problems during this stage in the immigration process occur because the visa applicant is not adequately prepared for the interview.
If the adjudicating Embassy official, who interviews your fiancee or spouse, finds any discrepancies between their responses to the many visa interview questions and the supporting documents they present, the case may be forwarded to the fraud prevention unit for further investigation. This is more likely if your partner does not know what to expect during the initial interview and becomes unreasonably nervous. If your loved one answers one or more of the interview questions incorrectly, this can lead to a long delay in the processing of your case or, even worse, a visa denial.
