Evidence of Communication during separation

Hello again everyone,

I've been combing this forum for some information on how to properly provide evidence of communication during times of separation. Just to clarify we've only been apart three times in since 2012 - once when my partner initially flew home back to Oz, with me following a couple months later, and on two occasions where I flew home for friends' weddings (1 month trips). I was on the phone today with immigration to ask a few questions (including the communication stuff) and they told me to not give skype/facebook/text records, but rather to write a statement about how we kept in contact. So now I'm a little confused as to whether or not I should go about taking screenshots of these to prove our communication. I feel that just writing a statement doesn't really prove anything and I should provide more, but at the same time they don't want the records? I'm confused. Does anyone have any insight to offer?

Thanks so much!

One piece of advice ... don't listen to what the call centre staff. They are call centre staff they are not trained in partner visa processing.

What you can provide is call logs ie. Skype, Viber, Mobile etc.

Then with any chat history ie. Facebook, Viber, Whatsapp etc, don't provide the entire call log but an extract of some things you have talked about.

They just want to see that you have been in communication.

Thanks Mish, it's tough when you try to make calls, but they end up confusing you more! I feel a lot better about it now though

Yeah, don't call IMMI for advise or suggestions. Best to ask on here or speak to a MARA agent!

They provide incorrect advice all the time and won't be held responsible for it.
