Post Defacto Visa

Hi I'm Krissy from the Philippines.

I arrived here in Australia last May and stayed for 6 months with my boyfriend who is an Australian citizen. We did a tourist visa (Sponsor Visa) for 6 months. I went back home for Christmas last month and now I'm back here in Sydney. My partner and I decided to apply for the partner visa which is the defacto visa. We've been together for almost a year now and have lived together for almost 7 months now.

We are planning to apply by next week and so confused when and how to start my application. So I am not allowed to work here in Australia and my boyfriend is still sponsoring me. As what I have read, some of the evidence needed are joint bank accounts or lease of the apartment together. I'm a bit worried about this, but we are confident because our relationship is so genuine and a lot of our mutual friends and family can testify our relationship.Any advice on what should we do first and any tips about my visa

Thank you so much

I am afraid that from what you have said so far you would have great difficulty in obtaining a defacto visa.
Before you waste $7000 I suggest you contact a Registered Migration Agent, who will be able to give you guidance in regard to which path you should follow towards obtaing a visa.
