Partner Visa - US.

Hello,

My partner and I are applying for a partner visa in the end of July. I am Australian, and my partner is American.

We met in September and Start dating on the 31st of August. We started living with each other (sharing rent) in January and our relationship has been registered with the QLD Government since the 5th of April. We are also now living at my parents house and are approved tenants on the lease as of the end of April, and we also have had a joint bank account for the past few months - so all of our finances are shared.

I'm just looking for advice on what extra stuff that we can do before submitting this application so that we have a higher chance of being approved as the only thing really I can see standing in our way is that we haven't been together for a total of 12 months before applying.

Any advice is helpful!

Car Insurance with both people named as drivers
Things showing each other as beneficiaries (superannuation, wills)
Private health cover with both people listed
Tickets and invitations with both names listed
Joint fly by's/Everyday rewards etc
Pictures
Stat decs from friends/family
Receipts from dinner/nights out that match the card statement
Flights/Itineraries for joint travel

I provided our pet insurance for our dog which listed both of as policy holders

I'm sure there's more!

I can't do car insurance because that's actually all under my parents name as it is there spare care.
But we do have each other as beneficiary for superannuation! We just got private health insurance together about 2 months ago and we also have joint fly bys together.
Plenty of pictures, separate and family events. Also pictures of myself and him skyping his mum and friends back home!
I'll definitely start getting dinner receipts though, and we've so far gone on one little holiday together - but it was a surprise so it was all in my partners name but we have plenty of pictures from it; does that count?
Travel is a bit hard for us due to money and saving for the visa at the moment haha.
We are also on an electricity bill together and contents insurance but due to us moving to my parents theres only about two months worth of the insurance and there is 3 months of the electricity.

Pictures are good but they only hold so much weight, we submitted 15 with our application, try and pick ones where you look different or older etc to show the time frame. Even if the holiday was in your partners name highlight things on the card statement where you spent money away from home, that's what I did.
Limited insurance is fine, it's all adds weight.

Have you read the partner migration booklet? That has some useful ideas!
