I don't think you necessarily need joint utility bills (just my opinion). You need evidence of shared household/address (you have that in spades) and evidence of shared finances (you seem to have that in spades, too). Joint utilities aren't a mandatory thing. It certainly won't hurt if you CAN do something like that (good evidence) but if you can't do it, don't stress.

I don't think a joint electricity bill shows a genuin partnership.
But if there is one to show, it's always good .
All evidence of a joint household shows commitment.
But in my case I couldn't show anything like that. I had to with many other things prove that we are a genuin couple.
The question one have to ask is :
What is there I have that can prove that we are a genuine couple and take it from there..
At least that was the way we looked at it...
( just my experience)

And it stresses one out a lot when is says somewhere that one should supply all necessary info. because THEY might not ask for more ...
So we hit them with all we could think about..

Joint bills help provide that you live at the same address which is useful if you don't get any mail apart from bills at your address.

In our case we don't get any mail at the same address unless it is statements and bills ... oh and our tax return.

It all depends on the circumstances really and every relationship is different.

It is the same as that not everyone has a joint bank account but it is easier if you do.

We didn't supply a single joint bill.

The only thing we has to confirm we lived together was bank statements, ATO letters, and some other slightly official documentation with our address on it.

As Mish says it's just like joint finances. Joint accounts are great but not everyone needs ones to apply for a partner visa.

Hi,

First congratulations to the visa. I do not have that many photos, some from when we been visiting my partners family or my family been her, parties etc.

But there is maybe total of 25-30 photos. I do not like to many photos, never thought about collecting proof for this.

I was suppose to apply for a skilled working visa, but time ran out.

We also have invitations from Facebook of parties we went to, not the best but we do have them. Cards from parents etc.

I am just freaking out soooo much money and I do not want to leave my partner.

Everybody works with what they got..
we only try to give hints and share our experience. .
I'm pretty sure that you will put together the very best application you can do.
As you can see ( if you read about others here) all applications are unique, in the way couples meet, share things and proof of the things they have in common, and also how much they have to show, in order to explain how serious their partnership is..
It sounds like you have enough to show, so calm down and do whats needed and you'll be right..
Best of luck ( Y)

Just remember that photos are not everything it is just a small part of the evidence and application.

You will also have some couples that don't go out much so only have a few pictures.

As has been said all applications are different.

We just pass on comments based on our experience. However each embassy is different on what they expect ie. A high risk country needs more evidence than a low risk country especially offshore applications.

Relax
