please help

Hi guys,

I applied for onshore partner visa in december 2010 and they called me and my partner for interview on 9th of april 2012. we both were interview seprately. My partner is 17 years older than me. I dont know whether it is a big problem for us. I am 36 and my partner is 53.
Anyway we were interviewed by two ladies My CO and one other lady. I was wondering my CO did not even ask us any single question as i guess she was not able to speak good english, all the quetions were asked by the other lady.
They asked for my parents phone no and address in india. for what..?
and the other lady she asked for more paperwork which seems very irrelavent to me. She asked for car rental receipt as we hired the car on this easter to make a sydney trip. and she asked for the flea spray receipt as we had fleas in our property this year in january, bank statement ( individual and joint for past two years). i am just wondering why they asked for the address and phone no of my parents...
could anyone help please.
would really appreciate,
thanks

They will probably ring your parents to confirm that your relationship is genuine. It's a normal procedure and I wouldn't worry about it.

Requesting receipts is very relevant, as CO uses them in your favor when arguing your case. I would be very worried if CO didn't ask for additional documents.

This is not an immigration advice

I don't know how they knew you sprayed for fleas but what a strange request to ask for the flea spray reciept. Unless you both seperately said it in the interview as a shared experience (all be it an unpleasent one). Don't worry about them calling your parents if they are okay about you and your partner

thanks guys.. they can contact my parents but the problem is like my mom never been to school & she lived all her life in a very small village.& she cant speak english at all ...moreover she is not very comfortable with phones n all..she gets nervous on phone although she knows everything..for example she wouldn,t be able to remember the important dates like when did we get married or my date of birth as she doesnt know much about english calender coz in india few ppl use old traditional calender which is different than english calender and DIAC can take it against us.
& Aussieboy yes we did mention the flea thing in our interviews..

When providing the phone number of your mother, request for a translator who understands not only her language but the calender differences and explain that she uses a different calender. All Australian agencies have to provide a translator when requested. Hope this helps

Email or call the embassy back and request a translator, if you do not do this you may disadvantage yourself
