I am a Permanent Resident - applied for spouse visa in

Customer Question
I am a Permanent...

I am a Permanent Resident - applied for spouse visa in Australia. Married for 8 years and now just separated from my husband. i am applying for a tourist visa to travel overseas. Will the separation affect my PR status? I assume I need to inform Immigration of the separation? Thank you.

Lawyer's Assistant: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?

Permanent Resident in Australia. Not sure what USCIS is but no pending applications anywhere

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Not about the visa

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, just want to know if there is a fee for this service?

I have a friend who is currently going through the process
I have a friend who is currently going through the process of applying for PR. She is now within the bracket of eligibility after being on a Partner visa for the past few years. She is currently in second stages. Her relationship has been struggling for the past couple of years as her partner has become violent (socially, emotionally and now physically) and she is wanting to separate from him for now. She is wondering if separating from her partner and reporting it to immigration will affect her Permanent Residency? She has previously gone to the police and reported her husband and they have responded with warnings. Recently he physically attacked her and has left physical bruises and cuts on her (which she has reported to her GP). She was wondering if there is a special provision which will allow her to be granted PR even though she will be separated from her partner? … read more
