Hello everyone!

I read the partner migration booklet and both section (ie. Financial aspects and Nature of the Household) required evidences for shared financial responsibilities. It seems that some evidence will overlap.

I intend to use our joint bank statement to prove that we have been sharing household bills and expenses under the ‘financial aspects’ category. However, it is also suitable to prove under “the nature of the household” category where one of the requirement is to have joint responsibilities for bills and day-to-day living expenses.

Can anyone kindly explain or recommend the best way to differentiate the evidence in proving shared financial responsibilities between these two categories ?

Many thanks!:)

The DIBP website says if evidence can go under multiple categories, just upload it once under one category. This is where the narrative box comes in... you explain those situations then they'll know what the evidence is for.

What we did it have the joint bank statements under fiancial and then the joint bills under household. From memory we just had AGL, Telstra and Foxtel in joint names.

Thank you for answering my questions!

Other questions (if you don't mind)

- Would it be advisable to apply for partner visa 820 onshore, if we only lived together 5 months after marriage? Prior to that, we have had a long distance relationship for +5 years and most of our evidences are concentrated on joint travels & visits during separation. Should I accumulate more evidences and submit at least 6 months or more? I.e Joint Bank Statements, household bills, social activities.

- In the financial aspects, we need to demonstrate ‘sharing of finance’? I’m assuming this requirement is to demonstrate other expenses we have shared together apart from day-to-day living expenses. Can I include joint travel expenses, wedding expenses and furnishing apartment?

Many thanks!

Most recommend at least 4 months after marriage as it gives time to get some joint bills etc.

You can include more evidence as you go along but they do not need to take it into consideration.

If you are coming on a tourist visa then there is no difference for work rights if you apply as soon as you arrive vs near the end of the tourist visa, so I would apply near the end to give you more time to gather the evidence.

You can include all expenses. We just included all of our joint bank account statements that had all of our daily expenses and income.
