820 visa joint financial evidence

Hi,

I've been searching around the forums and reading up about the 820 onshore partner visa for a while now and I've written up the financial aspects of our relationship. I'm currently unsure about joint financial evidence.

I'm the sponsor and we are both on the apartment's tenant agreement, but as I am the single income earner, I basically pay for the daily expenses. Utilities were all set up in my name so they all come off my credit card. My partner is an additional card holder on my credit card, and she uses that for groceries and any day-to-day expenses she might have. I was wondering if this is enough evidence for the financial aspects? I basically share all my finances with her, but as she has no income, is that enough for evidence to show I support all our expenses?

Cheers

If you explain that well and show the evidence (receipts/statements) and have a reasonable amount of time together as a couple, that would be fine.

Often there is only 1 bread winner in a relationship for many reasons. Just explain and document it well.

I won't be using an agent for the 820 and my partner is from Japan. Good luck to you too with the application!

My partner and I will be applying for the same visa as well. What my partner did is he called all the utility companies he was getting services from, such as gas, electricity, water, internet, and he asked for my name to be added on the bills, so that when the utility bills come through mail/email, both names appear in there.

Good luck

Good idea, I know my gas company said they couldn't do it when I emailed them, but maybe I'll give them all a call to make sure

I dont see why they wouldn't be able to do it, I think it really depends on who your provider is. Our provider (which is the same for electricity and gas) had no problem doing it.Neither did the internet/home phone provider. I have worked for an electricity/gas company myself and the option of putting both partners' names on the bill was always available.

If you can't add both names to the bills, the try splitting them up. Have home internet in one name and electricity in the other. Then you can show both contribute to the bills at the same address, even if you can't both be on the same bill.

There is one provider that has been mentioned a few times on this forum that won't do joint bills.

A friend of mine her provider would not add her husband unless he provided a stat dec. It was too much drama for her to deal with.

If you have an online account you can add the other name on the first address line.
