I would like to find out how to renew visa subclass 461 visa after relationship breakdown with the NZ citizen. I called the immigration office and was told I CAN renew my visa, provided that: I have maintained Australian residency (which I had) I continue to meet health and character requirements (yes) I do not become member of a family of another person (no, me and my NZ husband are still married. However, he moved back to NZ 2 years ago and I started to see an Australian citizen 8 months ago). When I asked HOW to renew my 461 visa I was told I need to apply for new one, which I cannot do because me and my NZ husband had split up. Is there any other renewal path? I would greatly appreciate your help.
