But I suggest go to a JP/Solicitor and have it witness. No need to explain it to them. They already knew bout it.
Some solicitor are for free. I had my stat Dec signed by a JP/ Solicitor for free.

I thought only stat decs by friends family etc have to be witnessed...the statements by yourself and partner can even be just on plain paper...no need to witness...isn't it???
were do you have that info from IMkddj?

Cheers

You're right, the signature on the statement does not have to be witnessed. I checked on that before submitting my application. I guess it wouldn't hurt to have it done, but it's not required.

Hiya dingo,,
Me and my partner call our statement, Statutory Declaration.
And this is the info I saw before on Australia's Stat Dec information.

" A statutory declaration is a written statement which a person swears, affirms or declares to be true inthe presence of an authorised witness – usually a JP, a lawyer or a notary public."

So we decided to have it witnessed by someone, a JP.
It's always depends on what the applicant wants to do.
I always say that my advice is based on my experience, based on what I have read from other applicants experience and from what Immi told me.

Regards,
IMkddj

Thx guys for yours informations..

Currently we are working on writing our history relationship and we are writing them on blank papers. Its not a stat decs forms tho.. Do u think we still need a JP to sign them off?

About form 888 yes we do ask a friend n family to get a JP to sign them off.. Cos it clear on the form we do need someone to sign n witness them. But history relationship we couldnt find any stat decs forms, so we just write on blank papers n type them on computer.

NO you do not have to get your statement or your partners statement witnessed/signed by a JP. Just sign off stating that the above information is true and sign it. Typed on blank paper is fine. Just sign and date it at the end.

Form 888, that is used by other persons to validate your relationship, then YES, an official third party signatory is required.

Additional info

As stated on immigrations website relationship history letters can be written on plane paper & do not need to be witnessed or signed by a JP or anyone except yourself. If however you choose to write your letter on a blank Stat Dec form then yes you will need witness signatures.

Hi, I just started to write on my history of the relationship statement and I feel lost!

I don't know how much I should detail our story,.... or if it is more important to detail more from the begining of the defacto relationship...or if I should explain the different aspects of it (finaancial, social..).?

Anyone knows what they really are interested in about these declarations?
