@ allansarh
sound like you have everything prepared and gave it all a lot of thought...
I wouldn't use an agent...from all I read here and heard from others it's just a rip off and if you thoughtfully prepare everything and stick to the booklet, forms and advice you get here in the forum you should be fine without an agent...

@Miss Swan:
yeah of course you don't have pictures from inside the circus...I just thought maybe on your way there or outside the tent or something like that....all just suggestions...I would put in all the tickets anyways ans just write an explanation with it just make sure it's not your only evidence you use

I wish you two all the best!

Thanks miss Swan,
i appreciate it a lot,we dont have a criminal records anyway our purpose to use an agent is get out from the presure worrying it.i'll just let my girl talk to them every other day to follow up.i know its a lot money if we use an agent but we know that agent have too many experience on processing like this application,they are an expert already.

allansarh, I'm from Singapore. My partner's an Aussie citizen from Brisbane. I'm organising the paperwork on my end now, doing bit by bit each time. We have been together for 4.5 years and this is a long distance relationship so you can imagine there's tons of things to organise! I started 2 months ago, printing out all my emails and flight itineraries, as well as photos. Just last week I started copying my mobile bills and bank statements of money transfers. Making my final touches to my relationship statement (at the moment it's running at 8 pages, and must be my 10th draft!). I've contacted 2 friends to prepare writing the statutory declarations.

Next up will be updating my partner of what he needs to do. I'm not in any way stereotyping Aussie men, but my partner belongs to the category of laid-back and take-it-easy Oz men :P So the my real stress will come from getting him to get his paperwork ready! *fingers crossed*

P.S. the more forums you go to and start reading, the more expert you'll feel! I was very tempted to get an agent too because of some factors in my relationship but I've received so much help from the forums that I feel i can do it on my own. btw this is the 4th forum I've found that's given me extremely helpful information.

That we were doing also for the past 6 months we collect all our paper works but still we're not confident that we are doing the right thing for our visa thats why we decided to use an agent coz we dont wish that to do the wrong move for this coz its a lot money too and once it refuse u cannot refund your money...
Miss Swan the purpose me and my partner wish to use an agent it b'coz in that way it will not have a presured on us worrying if we do the right thing..we dont have any criminal case at all...This is my first form i join discussing about visa..can u give some forum u have join maybe could help me too..Thanks in advance...
