Customer Question
Hello, My partner 28 (US...
Hello, My partner 28 (US citizen) and myself 33 (AU citizen) started dating in March 2017. He travels to Australia sometimes for business and I have been to the US twice to visit him on a tourist visa. We want to move in together and would like to know what options are available for him to migrate to Australia? I would also like to know what the options would be if I fell pregnant while he was here on a business trip?

I have looked briefly, but it said we have to have been in a de facto relationship for 12 months?
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

then the next option is to consider a tourist visa or educational visa

have you considered either of these options ?
