Smile 820, feedback on evidence :)

Hi everyone.. thanks for the great information on the forum. I've spent days and weeks (probably months) going through every corner of the site and submitted my application in yesterday. I was initially pleased when the person who took out application said "This is the most organized application I have seen in a very long time. Well done." BUTTTT now, I'm getting paranoid. Presentation isn't going to mean anything afterall.... so here I am second guessing what I have accumulated. I think it's from mixed advices like "Put in everything you can find. better give more than less" and "Don't go overboard, keep it simple and succinct." I went with the latter. Mistake? ARGGHHH.

Ooo well, here we go... haha

Forms 40sp and 47sp
My passport/national id/birth certificate stat dec certified copies
My SO passport/birth certificate copies
My SO letter of employment
2 passport photos each

Stat decs from each of us
Joint account opening letter from the bank
Transaction printout of monthly money transfer from me to my SO bank account for rent (is this too much? I have 13 months of such transactions)
Tenancy agreement from agent adding my name to lease. This is only dated beginning July as 2011 that was when the lease is renewed. (Will this be a problem?)
Copy of my first bank statement to our address since I moved in. I also highlighted transactions that indicate my payment for moving truck and groceries. This statement includes 2 months ending since the date I moved in. (Do I need more than this statement? Include all statements since the move? Arghhh)
Flight tickets to 3 destinations (first one from Feb 2011)
Accomodation booking confirmation
A copy of the valuation of the rings we gave one another for our one year anniversary (Aug 2011)
18 photos (6 on each page, 80% of photos are with his and my family)
5 tickets stubs for events and such
copy of 1 valentine's card for me to him
copy of 1 birthday card from me to him
copy of 1 christmas card from his grandmother
Facebook wall to wall posts showing him and I wishing one another happy birthday from 2010. (I wrote a side note saying that we both are not very active facebook users)

Form 888 x 5
His sister and her fiance
His mother and her current partner
Our housemate

Form 80 and security checks
Receipt from Medibank health solutions for my health check appointment (results not in yet grrr)

---

That's about it. I think I do not have enough evidence arghh! I read through the booklet again.. (I have been asking my SO to read to me while I do the paperwork cause he hates writing or anything to do with the computer). Trust a little bit misplaced. I overlooked the part "Nature of the Household. a statement outlining the basis on which responsibility for housework is distributed;" We did not mention anything about how we split up housework. Now I'm panicking like a headless chicken. To make it worse, I'm googling stories of visas being denied and it's making me go nuts. These stories have more evidence that I do (like their motto was submit everything, leave nothing behind). And they are even married.

Tell me honestly, am I over-reacting?

I think you are overreacting!!! Your evidence looks good an you have shown in your evidence that you have lived together for the required length of time. You have solid evidence so I wouldn't worry. If all other aspects are there they won't deny your visa because you didn't include nature of household in your statement. If they want that information they will ask for it.

Now don't stress too much over what you have supplied, it's done and it looks very good. Now it's a waiting game and it may take a few months. That's normal so don't stress that it has anything to do with the evidence you supplied.

Thanks whatnext! I think I went crazy when I read about team oyeniyi and her story. U might have read about it lol.

The feeling was.. I was running.. running.. running.. look at trees, nice scenery.. and *SMACK* hit a brick wall in front of me. I literally fell off my chair trying to grab the copy of the booklet and double check stuff.

Haha.

Bumpbump,
now you're making me worry... We're preparing our 820 application, we have similar evidence, and now I started worrying about what you said - about couples being denied 820.
The cases you googled, why were they denied?
Kind regards,
bma

Guys, try not to worry. Your evidence sounds more than adequate. Every case is different. The time you have been with your partner is also a factor. And if you are really concerned, you can always submit more supporting evidence after sending your application. If you do, write a cover letter explaining that you're sending more evidence of relationship and make sure you have your full name and date of birth on it.

Also, you don't have to send just what is on their lists. Send things that people aren't in a true relationship wouldn't normally have. I sent our daughter's baptism certificate as part of my evidence as well as photocopies of mine and my hubby's credit cards that show our names and the same numbers.

Honestly, though, I think we all go through the "it wasn't enough!" stage.
