Final Checklist for Initial Partner Visa Application

Hi there! So yesterday afternoon I finally submitted my application and paid with BPAY, which gives me a couple of days to make sure I have everything I need in terms of evidence before the payment is received. Just to put my mind at ease, would anyone care to tell me if I'm missing anything from my checklist?

Just a bit of background info first: partner and I met online in Feb 2013, he came to Ireland to meet me in Sept 2013, returned to Aus Dec 2013, there was back and forth visits to both countries until July 2015 when I moved over here on a WHV. And that brings us to now - applying for our defacto!

So, what I have is as follows:

- Certified written statements from both my partner and I
- x4 stat decs from partners mother, his sister, his bestfriend, and best friends girlfriend
- Written letter from my parents in Ireland - maybe superfluous but I reckoned I should include it
- Certified copies of both of our birth certs & passports
- Certified copy of our NSW Relationship Registration Certificate
- Australian Police Check letter (I realise this may expire after 1 year...I don't mind paying for it again!)
- Irish Police Check letter (lovely Irish policemen do it for free!)
- Scanned copies of our bond and our lease with both of our names on it (moved into own apartment January this year, were living with partners mother before that)
- Bank statements and other correspondence that showed we lived at same address when we lived with his mother
- Screenshots of bank statements showing I paid $200 a fortnight in rent to his mum
- Scanned copies of electricity and Internet bills with both names on it
- About 6 or so scanned Coles receipts from various months showing our grocery shop and it being paid via split payment from both of our cards
- Couple of bank statements from our joint Current & Savings Account - the current a/c is where our rent is deposited into and taken from, savings is pretty much where we saved to pay for this!
- Copies of flight itineraries, receipts etc from the times either of us travelled to Ireland/Aus to visit between 2013/2015
- Screenshots of various dated Skype calls between 2013 and 2015 until I moved over here. Also I managed to use this software which shows your Skype statistics (shows how many hours worth of calls we made to eachother), so I included that
- Screenshots of a number of Facebook photos showing dates & comments from friends and family members - not a huge amount of photos, about 10 or so, but they span over the course of 3 years, with our two friends who wrote the stat decs being in many as well as my partners family
- Screenshots of Facebook statuses etc showing times when both of us travelled to the other

.....aaaaand that should be it I think! If there's anything missing please let me know, I have that usual panic of not having enough evidence!

Thanks in advance
