Smile Partner Visa Qs

Just a few questions about the partner visa!

1. Does the Letter of Employment for my partner need to be witnessed like a stat dec?

2. I cancelled a student visa application before the visa was issued. Does that count as having a visa cancelled? I am providing them the information as to why I made the decision and the forms I received when I cancelled it. But I was never cancelled a visa for illegal activity, breach of visa, or something to that affect.

3. I came in on a tourist visa because my partner and I wanted to build more evidence of our life together, get our relationship certified in VIC, and just not be apart. In turn, I haven't been employed due to my visa restrictions. I did put money into our joint account from refunds for school stuff (about $2000 or so) and I have cash deposits where I lent my parents some money and they have paid me back. We have bank transactions from when I was on work/holiday visa and contributed to our bills, dates, etc. Will the fact that I have not contributed financially the way he has the past six months affect this if we give our evidence and reasoning in our stat dec?

If he's been supporting you and you've been "sharing" money I imagine that will look fine. They can't expect both people in a relationship to contribute money because that's not always realistic if one person is sick/cares for someone or, like you, has working restrictions.

Why do you need the letter of employment?

He is my sponser and one of the requirements is that he be able to financially support me. One of the evidence types is pay stubs and a letter of employment. We have pay stubs and his employer is happy to do a letter. Just need to know if we need to take him and get it witnessed by someone qualified to do so. Kind if a pain, but he would do it for us.

You don't need a letter of employment. I have never provided anything in regards to my employment and have had no issues. There is no minimum amount the sponsor needs to earn.

If they really were concerned they could obtain the information from the ATO anyway.
