An inquirer whose partner visa is a long way off decision and who phoned about his concerns has highlighted a common problem – what happens when the relationship turns sour before any decision is made by Immigration? There’s the obligation to tell Immigration of changes in circumstances. If the relationship is really at an end then only a couple of significant reasons such as the couple having a child together might save the sponsored person from having to depart the country.
And if the sponsored person is not eligible to apply for any other visa, then their situation in the Australian context is bleak. You can check out official info at https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/801-
Of course, a pragmatic approach is to always have an open mind about any other visas you might be eligible for if you are unfortunate enough that your relationship does not last and your partner visa possibility disappears.
