Applicant subjected to family violence after marriage

October 13, 2021 - Unreported Cases

In 2007 the applicant entered Australia on a Working Holiday Visa. After meeting an Australian citizen and forming a relationship, the applicant lodged an application for the 820 visa. After marrying his partner, the applicant was subjected to psychological family violence. The partner visa was not granted so ISL helped represent the applicant at MRT supporting the applicant’s family violence claim as well as the relevant statutory declarations by a competent person. There was a concern for the applicant’s emotional and psychological well-being.

The case was remitted back to DIBP for the grant of the visa.
