Nobody would want to spend over $7, 000 dollars for a partner visa only to be rejected for a few simple reasons—inconsistencies, mistakes, and wrong credentials. With the Australian Department of Home Affairs being rigid in terms of those who will be approved, you should be mindful that you will be throwing away quite a lot of money just by committing a mistake in your application.
If you are in a relationship applying for such, your relationship must be proven reliable and valid. With this, it is a very crucial task that the both of you must be able to provide only the most appropriate requirements they will need for your application.
Let us take a look at the common mistakes every couple applying for a partner is able to do which led them to be rejected—something that we cannot afford to do because primarily speaking, it is expensive. Make your every penny count.

The immigration personnel may interpret it the other way around as if you and your partner have separated already. So it is a must to update such to your immigration officer so they would understand that you just moved into another residence but that does not mean that you have terminated your relationship. Evidence of your relationship should not have conflict with one another or else, expect that you will not get that visa you are aiming for.
