You will need to send us additional documents to show you are still married or in your de facto relationship.
We will contact you to ask for the documents about two months before you are eligible to be assessed for the permanent Partner visa (subclass 801). You are eligible to be assessed for the visa two years after you lodge your visa application.
Do not send the documents until we ask you to.
Note: It is important that you let us know if your contact details change.
