normally 3 to 12 months. But it's not your choice. They will give you whatever they want. For Dependent Spouse it's normally 12 months but I've seen them give only 6 a number of times. If they give less than 12 it's a bit inconvenient, but it's their country so be thankful you get it at all. I've also seen them reject LTVP's for Spouses as well. Especially if the spouse is a PRC. :o

Hi,

Just to help numerous other people who show up on this forum, could you tell us a few things about yourselves?

1) What country are you originally from?
2) Your race?
3) Did you have any kind of declaration from your embassy(or elsewhere) to the status of your relationship?
4) Are you and your partner same or opposite sex?

Thanks, those details will help lots of people who come here and post asking how to do what you did.

Sure!

1) What country are you originally from?

Australia - my partner is an Australian citizen, but originally from France. I also hold Italian citizenship.

2) Your race?

Caucasian.

3) Did you have any kind of declaration from your embassy(or elsewhere) to the status of your relationship?

No, just a statutory declaration executed in accordance with Australian law (standard stat dec form, witnessed by a legal practitioner or justice of the peace). The ask from the migration agent was that the stat dec "confirms that you and your partner are currently in a de facto relationship. Please provide a background to your relationship, confirm that you are residing together, and provide details of your future plans."

It probably helped the "genuineness" aspect that we have a child together, travelling with us, who has a DP on my EP.

4) Are you and your partner same or opposite sex?

Opposite.

Hope that all helps.

midnightvisitor, you have been here a month now, and have not made on useful post yet. All your posts are for no other reason than to advertise your blogspot. Give me one good reason why we should continue to waste our precious bandwidth for your advertising purposes?

Seriously.
