This petition had 19,873 supporters

My name is Zoey Madden and Im writing out of pure frustration, anxiety and sadness that my own government has separated me from my partner whilst I am 22 weeks pregnant.  Im an Australian Citizen and my partner is from the UK, however has resided in Australia for the last 7 years.  Im a Registered Nurse and Alex owns and operates a business here in Australia.  He has followed Immigration process which has resulted in an offshore visa application.  He is currently sitting in the UK and has been refused a temporary visa on grounds that do not make any sense and now he won't be able to see the birth of his own child. This has been a very costly and stressful process totalling $50,000AUS since his arrival in 2010. I am now left on my own and will be leaning on Centrelink for welfare payments as my partner is no longer in the country.  We want action for our partner visa to be processed ASAP however we have been informed by the immigration department that this can take up to 18 months to process.  Please help me bring my partner back to Australia to help me raise our child.
