Hi Australi,

It does not matter if your partner wants to apply for centrelink as there are many ppl here that have sponsored their partner while they were receiving centrelink. Yes government departments do cross reference information so best is to be honest in your application. When applying for centrelink your partner needs to declare that he is in a defacto relationship with you and they will take your salary into consideration and he would probably get a lower amount. All government welfare benefits are means tested i believe.

Anyway once your partner applies for centrelink and declares that you guys are in a defacto you can gt a letter from centrelink stating they were notified about your defacto relationship and that is good evidence to add to your partner visa application.

Thank you for your reply lildevil.

I'm just worried because it seems contradictory that he is applying to sponsor me financially at the same time he is applying for benefits. I just don't want to jeopardize my visa!

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks!
When we applied my partner (sponsor) had been on centrelink for about 4 months around 6 months before we applied, but he was in employment at the time we applied

You have to send bank statements with your application so the person assessing your application will be able to see that your partner has centrelink payments being made to him.

I don't think this should be an issue though, especially if you explain when he worked up until and what his plans are regarding work in the future, and how you intent to support yourselves. The fact that you are in work and he has been in work should be fine - i think - does anyone else have advice on this?

Thanks

I totally understand. Previously they require applicants to fill out an assurance of support form which requires a statement from a family member i believe declaring that he/she would financially support the couple if they ever face financial difficulties during the application process however they have removed that.

Technically your partner is sponsoring you a visa so that you are able to live here lawfully together with him so it doesn't necessarily mean he is supposed to support you financially. Don't worry it should be fine as long as centrelink is notified too and don't forget to include your recent payslips and perhaps a statement from your employer stating you have been working there etc.. this will show immigration that you can financially support yourself as they are more worried about applicant's that end up needing welfare benefits in the future as they cannot financially support themselves.

Good luck and hopefully you'll get approved soon.

We actually put in a stat dec from my sponsor's parents saying that although we were financially independant and they had never had to help us, they would be willing to do so in the situation that we might need it.

Ours was approved in May so the Centrelink thing obviously wasnt a problem

That is correct!!
From what I know, financial and work stability comes in handy and adds points to one's file but it definitely is not a deciding factor of the visa application. The most important factor is to prove the genuinity of your relationship with your partner.

Hope this helps. Good Luck

Kind Regards,
Becky
