Domestic/family Abuse: wife finds happiness in Australia after AR LAW Services wins her appeal

A woman retained AR LAW Services after her Australian partner and sponsor withdrew his sponsorship. The withdrawal meant she basically had to depart Australia.

But the withdrawal was only the last act of a long history of emotional and physical abuse.

As is often the way in these matters the visa holder – a stranger in a strange land – has limited or no support. They are often isolated by their abusers and have no way to protect themselves or get help.

This client came to AR LAW Services while at a women’s shelter. (She was lucky to have a friend who knew of our work)

Given she had never gone to the police nor any hospital she had very little evidence.

Hence it was a long and difficult case, even-though it was clearly a meritorious case.

Following the many legal and other reports and submission we got our day in court and based upon AR LAW Services legal advocacy the client won her appeal, and therefore her right to stay.

So if you or anyone you know is in a failing or failed relationship and currently has applied for a partner visa talk to us
