im 23 my boyfriend of 2 years is 33 his irish im australian and we have a beautiful 3 month old baby girl. he has overstayed his visa and has been living here in australia illegally for a little over 3 years now. before bubs arrived we were travelling and we would stay in one place for 6 months then move on as the visa he was on only allowed for 6 months in one job, this was ok, we would stay in staff accommodation. just before bubs arrived we settled down in a small costal town and started renting a house. now he has only 4 months left on his job and im scared as to whats going to happen next! I hate this so much, i really dont want to move from place to place i just want to be in one spot in my own house. i want a stable home and upbringing for my baby. i know my boyfriend doesn't really want to go back to ireland because work is so terrible there and he may not be able to come back to australia. i just have no idea what to do!! i don't want to force the matter on him as i know his freaking out too. does any one have any advice? i have heard of the spouse visa and i know that they cost something like $6500 i also know that immigration can just say no and he will be given 28 days to leave, on the wages his on we couldn't save that much in a few months and save for plane tickets and get passports for myself and bub if they turn around and say no... im so scared and dont know what we should do! are there any more options out there for us? has anyone been in a similar situation or know of a similar situation and can give any advice?
