Hi! I am planning to lodge my Partner visa (subclasses 820 and 801) very soon. I am from the Philippines but I am now staying here in Australia, although I am still on Tourist Visa with my daughter. I am married to an Australian citizen got married here last year and I am also currently 33 weeks pregnant. I have few questions that I hope you can help me. First is regarding the question about PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIP. I have never been married nor been in a de facto relationship. I've been a single mother, her biological father is a Filipino. We have no communication with him at all. Legally he has no rights too. On my daughter's Birth Certificate on Father's Name it said UNKNOWN. He was my ex boyfriendx, but we never lived together and relationship lasted for less than 6 months. He never supported her financially at all. Although she met him before on few occasions when she was 1 year old and 3 years old. Since then, we have no contact with him. His name was also not part on any of my daughter or my records with any government or private entity. I also don't actually remember his birthday and when exactly our relationship started and ended. It was 11 to 12 years ago. Question, do I still have to click YES on that part where they asked if I had a previous relationship? Well obviously I had, but the way I understand it is it's asking for previous marriage or death facto relationship. However, I am just a little confused still cause I had a child with him, and my daughter is included in the application, if I say NO to that part will they question me why I answered that knowing I have a child? I am a little confused. Please help. Thanks in advance.

If you have never been married or de facto, you have no relationship to declare. I answered no for this and had a child of a previous relationship migrating with me.

Thank you for the response. That's very good to know. How's your visa is it already approved? They didn't ask any other questions thereafter? Is your child also under your sole custody? If yes, did you still attached a court order stating that the child is under your sole custody or a birth certificate was enough for this?

On my daughters Birth Certificate under Father's Name it says UNKNOWN. My question is, do I have to still follow this:
Attach a certified copy of the court order giving you the sole legal right to determine where the child shall live or the right to remove the child from the country

I never had a court order cause the father was never been in the picture at all. I have a solo parent card issued from Philippines before and my daughter's birthday certificate. Will that be enough? Thank you in advance!
