Did you have many big joint purchases on the bank statements? Our issue is we've had very little money so no big purchases besides flights, and money for groceries we always take out to budget better (with cash)... we're scared we're in trouble with that.
Hey there!

No we just paid rent, some hotel payments and also groceries from our joint account!

Thanks for the well wishes everyone and good luck

It makes you wonder what goes on in there really. I am wishing you luck that yours will be granted soon. If you're on BVA though can you not work fulltime anyway/find a new job?

unfortunately not. My visa is 4 year 457, but contract was only 6 months. Theres different rules, which is silly: if the visa expired, then I would stay on a bridging visa and be able to work, however as mine would be cancelled as my contract would finish before my visa, it also cancels my bridging visa. So either ive gotta get responsored before this happens (tough right now in my industry, most work is short term freelance) or go on a bridging visa E, which means I cant work or leave the country. Basically giving me the same rights as a refuge!

Anyways, dont want to rain on your parade, congrats again

How many stat declarations did you use? I have kept my application succinct as well in hopes of quick processing so I have only included two declarations, one from our housemate/landlord and one from my partner's mother. I figured a CO probably doesn't want to read a statement from everyone we know about how much we love each other.

Yes, I think this is correct. My application was not long.

We used 2 stat decs, from our 2 housemates.

Please don't be fooled into thinking that your CO doesnt want to read all this stuff...this is their job and this is a serious process you have entered. In the end it is our job and only our job to convince these people that we are worth this visa we have requested.

It is my opinion that CO's come to the analysis of all applications with that view...prove a lack of information due to wanting to not overload a CO might not prove to be advantageous for your plight in the long run.

Yes, I actually agree. There is definitely such a thing as overloading, like with 100+ Facebook screenshots or every receipt ever produced on top of bank statements. But I personally always understood that Statutory Declarations as evidence are being taken VERY seriously. I don't think it's easy to overload on vital evidence. You can always add a statement that more declarations can be requested.

I presume most people do fine with just two. But especially if any other area of your application feels slightly weaker to you (for instance we live with his parents so no bills in our names) why not add some more weight in the stat dec area of you easily can anyway.

We'd rather it takes them a year to approve a giant stack, than it taking them a few days to doubt us.
