  1. Visas and immigration
    Hello! My Sponsor and I have submitted our applications. Unfortunately we don't have a lot of evidence of cohabitation. We live in company housing, rent comes out of his pay, and we don't pay energy or water (the meter is broken). I mean, this is great news for our bank account but bad news...

    Hello everyone! This forum has been very helpful in figuring out all the information I need for the partner visa but I am unsure about if I should wait until I have more evidence specifically renting a place together instead of living in his parents house. I was planning to apply for the visa...

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me with my situation. Im organizing my docs to apply for the 820 Defacto Visa, and one of the requirement is to be in a genuine relationship (Defacto) for 12 mo. By the time I lodge my application it would be 14 mo we've been together in a mutual...

    Hello everyone, I am currently on a 820 visa, and applied for 801 since July, 2017, and we are living together on a daily basis. However, there is a very good job opportunity in another town, which is 4 hours away (driving) from my current home. My guess is: if I get this job, then I have to...

    Hi, wondering if I could get some advice for the proof of 12 months of living together for a partner visa. While my partner and I have been living together for 12 months, the first 5 were at his family's home (so no lease agreements, bills etc) and all subsequent months we have been travelling...

    Hi all, Not sure if this has been asked before but can't seem to find it. I've basically heard some conflicting information from Border.gov.au calls about the living together requirement for a de facto visa for me and my same-sex partner. Once, she phoned them and asked if it was a...

    Hi everyone, My Australian partner and I are applying for a de facto visa so I can stay in Australia before my visa runs out in mid-November. We've been together for almost 2 years but we have lived separately. Last year he had to move to Brisbane because of lack of work in Melbourne, we always...

    Hi everyone! My girlfriend and future spouse is looking at applying for an onshore partner visa in the next couple of months when she comes over to Australia to visit. We've been dating for about a year, and are looking at getting married sometime in 2016 (we dated for 10 months before she had...

    The first question is kind of a dumb question: The de facto conditions state that you must be living with your partner for 12 months prior to submitting the application. Can we live separately after submitting the application while we wait for it to be processed? (He goes back to Australia...

    My partner and I applied for de facto in February and are expecting the visa to be granted anytime soon. She currently studies in Adelaide, I will take a job in Sydney once the visa is granted. Because of her studies, she cannot live in Sydney with me straight away but will move to Sydney to...

    Hi All, Could anyone please help and check if i got enough of 'evidence ' to prove that me and my partner Alex are living together for at least a year? So that I can add my partner as my dependent and Defacto partner in my application for visa under the general skilled migration scheme. The...

    Hi All, i need to gather evidence to add my partner as de facto partner in my visa application and prove that we live together for at least a yr. Can someone please explain to me what it means : 12month living together may be waived if "cohabitation was not permissible under the law of the...
