Hey guys (honestly don't know what id do without this forum right now) just up to setting out my joint bank statements and was just wondering have people printed them of, highlighted them, then scanned them back in? Or is there a way I can just download them on to my computer and highlight them using Microsoft word or something?

Also, how have people set them out? Just added each statement into a word document? Should i fit around 4 or 5 on the same page or am I best doing 1 statement to a page?

and ALSO, 1 separate PDF for our Joint statements, MY personal statements, and my PARTNERS personal statements or just 1 PDF for all these put together?
Hopefully I'm on the right track!

Some people print off and highlight and note by hand. Some people do it digitally. Doesn't matter either way as long as it's clear and legible.

This doesn't matter either but I always choose for the way that would be easiest for a CO to read it.

These should all be separate. I'm sure you're aware that you do not need to upload a joint statement but you've chosen to. They all need to be their own pdf and labeled appropriately ("sponsor_personal_relationship_statement", "applicant_personal_relationship_statement", or whatever you want to call it so that it is obvious what it is).

I thought it was required to upload joint bank account statements for the past 12 months???

Also when your labeling it doesn't have to have '_' right? E.g. "applicant_relationship_statement" I don't not understand that? Can't i just say "application relationship statement"

Sorry Sky I think there was a mis understanding! I'm talking about my actual 'Joint bank account transfer statements' From the day we opened up our joint account until now. Not our personal written statements

No idea why you shouldn't use spaces but it asks you not to use spaces in file labeling for files uploaded to immi. Hence the underscores. I don't think it really matters personally but they must have a reason for saying it.

And yes, I see where I misunderstood. Joint bank statements are not necessarily a requirement to apply for de facto, but it can be good evidence and many people choose to show it to cover the financial side of things. There's really no specific way to do it but most people highlight major purchases like household items, holidays, bills, etc and note what each is so it's easy for the CO to skim through. Obviously it would be a good idea to choose a few statements over the course of your relationship but you don't need to upload every statement since you've been de facto. You just want to give them an idea that you have a joint account and what you do with it.

Same sort of thing with messages. You don't give them a copy of the tens of thousands of faceboo k messenger messages or text messages you've sent, just a few snippets of it here and there to show you've been in contact during time apart (more relevant in long distance relationships I suppose).

Keep in mind that they only have so much time to look over your app. Keep it simple and easy to read. You don't have to overwhelm them with everything you have. It's better IMO to show important things over time rather than every insignificant thing.
