Lightbulb Evidence to prove 1 year de facto for visa 820/801

Hi all,

a little background.
I am sponsoring my BF to apply for 820/801 and because my bf's temporary visa is about to expire in the mid of Oct and the Bridging visa C is going to take effect (he applied for PR and TR the same time 2 years ago), we are rushing to submit the application before TR expires.
We have lived together for about 1.5 year. However, because we rented a room from a family, we don't ahve any power bills / formal rental agreement. I am not quite sure the below envidence would be enough to apply on the De facto grounds.


I have checked Fact sheet 35 and these are what i have

IMMG - they have been living together or have not been living separately and apart on a permanent basis.

Can i provide a letter from the landlord to state when we moved in, and etc? use this as a rental agreement?
I also have the bank transfr record on my bank statement showing my BF transfers the rent to me, and i pay them together.
All our letters are sent to the same address as well for the past 1.5 year.

IMMG- financial aspects
We bought a car together, but the rego is under my name. My bf did all the negotiation with the car dealer and the tax invoice is under his name.
We also have a joint account from 06/2010, but we rarely use it for daily grocery shopping. it's mostly used to save some travel fund and we recently used it to buy airflight tickets to other countries.
the daily grocery shopping / meals could be paid by anyone at the time. Can I highlight these transactions on each person's bank statement?

IMMG- the social aspects
I can provide statutory dec from friends, and also photos of us travelling.

IMMG - the nature of the commitment
I have phone bills showing we call each other all the time, and e-mails.
Also my superannuation beneficiary is him as well from FY 2010.
We both have electronic receipts for buying presents for the birthdays/anniversary/special occasion.

We are also trying to register the NSW Relationship now I don't think we can make it at the time of submitting. Can I submit the relationship certificate after the application? At the moment, trying to get the application in before TR expires is the key for us!

Could you please kindly tell me anything else I need to prepare? would these be enough?

Thank you so much for all your help

Hi nanana,

I've just been granted my PR 6 days ago. Anyway with regards to your concerns i think:

1. Rental agreement and joint bank accounts are good evidences. It just shows that you both have shared financial obligations. Just submit as much proof as you can. Like declaration to government any entities that he is your husband, eg. ATO, Centrelink etc. Or if you have insurances a proof that he is your beneficiary. Bank transfer receipt or statements, phone bills, etc.

2. Social Aspects: Photos with both you & your husband with your with friends, attending or hosting parties, etc. Statutory declaration should be from people not related to any of you, but can attest that your relationship is real. Should be professional also like doctors, registered nurses, bank manager, public servants (gov't employees) lawyer, etc. My hubby is a gov't employee, which was a great help.

3. Nature of Commitment: statement on how you support each other, like personal family problem that he was there for you and you for him. It will also help if you outline your shared responsibility like who does the cooking, cleaning, shopping, taking care baby (if theres one). And you can also write about your future plans.

Did both of you wrote the history of relationship? I remember me & hubby sent this also.

I think you have more than enough & good to go, as to register with NSW relationship, its really up to you. I did not send
any of the same kind. I know the paper works and the waiting game are stressful, but in the end all these will all be just an experience. Good Luck to you!!

Hi Mayumi,

Congratulations!!
Thank you for your informative reply.

1. I don't have an officiall rental agreement but will arrange one signed by the landlord.
My super beneficiary is my BF and I have included in the evidence

2. Our friends have agreed to write stat dec so i guess we will be fine with this requirement. Unfortunately I don't know anyone in the government and etc.

3. Yes, we will write how me met, how the romance started and bla bla bla.I am trying to use the touching story to win some tears!

Thank you so much for your advice!
