When I did Stage 1 and 2 for 820/801, I kept the application under my maiden name because that's what it is on my passport, to which the visa is tied to. I just listed my married name under other names I'm known by.
Oh yes, good idea in listing it under other names. I think that will be my plan also, to keep my maiden name on immi and my passport but I'll begin to switch things over and upload them into evidence as I would otherwise. Thanks
