Will a jail conviction lead to a refused Australian partner visa?

Will a jail conviction for a serious crime prevent an Australian man from sponsoring his lady from the Philippines for an Australian partner visa, spouse visa or fiancee visa? What sort of crimes, and how much time in jail? Will we lose the visa application charge if the visa is refused?

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has protection in place for vulnerable ladies migrating to Australia when a man has a history of violence and/or sexual offenses. This is to protect women and children from family violence. What should you do if you have a conviction?
