Her current visa expires this month and with no restrictions we did not think there would be an issue to apply for an extension whilst we are in the queue for the permanent visa. There are exceptional circumstances to her case but this was not stated on the application made by our agent so we are now left in two minds as to what to do....appeal and go to tribunal or resubmit application ourselves? The agent applied under tourist class (600 tourist) but should we resubmit under 600 Family Assisted?? How many times can you apply and if you go to tribunal can you remain in Australia whilst it is waiting to be reassessed?? So many questions sorry!
I can't comment really without seeing the refusal letter. Feel free to drop me a line.
