Aus and my gorgeous aussie boyfriend calling!

Hello all, just to introduce myself. I'm Anna and will be starting my de facto application process in July. With a view to make the move October '13 if everything goes to plan and de facto accepted. Plan to settle with my Aussie boyfriend in southern Queensland. Hope I can call on your experiences in due course. :-)

Oh cool. I already have an envelope in which I'm collecting our relationship 'evidence' with house insurance bills and photos etc ready for my application in July ( a year after my first dated document.)

So weird having to document our relationship!

What stage are you at?

i know it is strange to document your relationship, like just doing the grocery shopping together, and being like "Oh hey! we should definantly keep these receipts!" haha
but yeah so good to start early and keep anything you think will help the application!
if you look at my posts, ive recently done one basically listing a large majority of the things we're including in our app, still a couple weeks til we are handing it in though, so still some time to add extra things!
where bouts you applying from?

I'm applying from UK. Can I ask, did you look into applying for the de facto from within aus on a less temporary visa? I'm wondering about doing that instead. Like go out there on a working holiday visa and apply for de facto after a couple of months ( and delay the 1.5 k GBP... Ouch) I'd heard it can be more expensive that way though. Where you applying from? X

Hey, just had a look at your list of de facto evidence. It's a great help! Loads of stuff I wouldn't have thought of!

I met my partner in australia in 2010, then his australian working holiday visa ran out at the end of 2011, so i applied for a UK visa, and the 2 of us moved here to live for 12 months to meet the 12 month living together requirement, gather loads of evidence, spend a year here with his family etc - and then apply. So yeah we'll be applying here in the UK.

Yeah if you can go out there on a working holiday visa, and then apply then why not?! if you get your relationship registered in either NSW and maybe VIC as well i think, then that MAY waiver the 12 month living together requirement down to 6 months, maybe look into that if you decide to go out there. and if you do the 3 months farm work, then that will add an extra year to your working visa, so you'll have more time to sort the defacto.

we never really looked to deeply into applying onshore because we new dans australian visa was coming to an end. but i think it is more expensive, plus adding the costs of the other visas (working hol) you will be applying for beforehand.

hope i answered your q's?! haha

whole process is starting to send me a little crazy, but know it will be worth it! & i've had a fab year living here in the UK for the past year!

If its any comfort, your list of evidence looks great! I am certain you'll be fine. And I TOTALLY empathise with it sending you mental! Beurocratic form filling is the devils work!! But looks like you have worked really hard on it and I cannot feasibly see how they could say there isn't enough evidence!!

Brody and I met in India, I'm going out there to Aus: Lismore NSW for Xmas (so will have time to do more 'onshore application' research) and then Brody is moving here for 6-8 months on working holiday visa so we have all that time to compile evidence too. He's already 'lived' here for two months on his tourist visa so I have some evidence like joint contents insurance, car insurance and gas and electric bills, but not that much more.

I think ideally I'd like to do what you're doing and get my de facto before leaving then once im there i have no immigration eorries to deal with so can concentrate on settling in a new country, but maybe ill continue with my little file of evidence and then make a decision come July when I can officially apply.
