12 month rule?

Hello.

I am Australian and I will be living with my italian boyfriend for 11 months in Australia.

After his working holiday visa has expired, i will follow him back to italy and live there until we have obtained 12 months living together in order to apply for the defacto visa.

We have a bank account, joint lease, etc here in Australia, but back in italy we will be living with his parents. how can i prove to the government I “live” with him under the same roof?

If anyone has some good ideas please let me know we won’t have a joint lease in italy so it’s harder to show our living situation.

you will need to apply for a carta d'identita' using his address as residency, and then make sure that you are added to their "stato di famiglia" which is a certificate that shows that you all live together at that address.

You can have the address of any bank statements or mail in Australia redirected to Italy - that will show you are living at the same address.

Also statements from his parents etc will help.

Do you by any chance live in a state in Australia where you can register the relationship?

This is not a legal criterion.
