Few questions re Partner Visa 309/100

Hi there. We're just finalising our application for the 309/100, for which we'll be applying for offshore, from Ireland. The applicant is Irish and the sponsor an Aussie citizen.

Reading this forum has been immensely informative to date, but we have a couple of final questions/anxieties that others may be able to help us with (please!).

Our personal statements regarding the history of the relationship (and our joint statements on the various aspects of the relationship) do not need to be statutory declarations, just signed and dated? We have the Stat Decs from Aussie citizens, but just reading the visa info it's not exactly clear that our own personal statements on the relationship do not need to be stat decs (i.e. witnessed by a public notary here in Ireland).

Did anyone find not having joint assets (e.g. house or car) or liabilities (loans) an issue? We don't have wills either, but do have evidence of our joint lease, bills and shared financial responsibilities. Just a tad worried our affairs aren't combined enough...

The statements from you both don't need to be certified. Just signed and dated. Some still choose to do a stat dec though, however I believe it isn't legally binding if one is not a resident of Australia so there isn't a point if you're not Australian

As for your finances, it would be completely ridiculous if they refused everyone who didn't own things together! Many of us would have no hope. As long as you explain your situation and have the evidence to back it up (we live with my husband's mum and she wrote a statement about it, however we have not got our visa yet). Plenty of people on this forum who have gotten visas without owned houses, joint liabilities, joint accounts, joint leases... you just have to explain why and show financial ties through other stuff. For us, joint accounts are illegal here, so everything comes from bank statements and receipts.

Thank you very much for that reply. Figured as much on the statements, but good to hear it.

Take your point on the financial evidence, we are working hard to ensure we set out everything we have as clearly as we can.

The messiness of real life doesn't lend itself to visa applications in many circumstances!
