previous relationships question 62

'Have you ever been in a de facto relationship with a person other than your current sponsor'?
Have people written anyone they have lived with here. i.e. I have lived with an ex boyfriend so do I have to put his details down??????

This is a new version of this question introduced last November and has caused a lot of concern among applicants. Just living with a person does not necessarily make it a de facto relationship - it needs to be a genuine and committed relationship to the exclusion of all others, etc. So if you consider it was a de facto relationship, then you should include it on the form. If not, no need. I would think a relationship would need to rise to a pretty serious level to be considered a de facto relationship.

Hope this helps!

Best,

Mark Northam

Yes, that is exactly what we went by.

If it comes near the league of your current relationship in seriousness and commitment, it counts. Anyone you have genuinely made the same level of serious plans with previously.

What really bothers me about this particular question on the form is that you end up putting an ex's information into DIAC's computer system without their permission, and who knows where that data could be cross-referenced, etc in the future. If a party is related to an applicant via personal (family), employment, etc that's one thing, but it seems to me to be a long stretch to want data on now-completely unrelated people and relationships that may be decades old.

My thoughts exactly. I can't remember his date of birth anyway?!? Have no way of contacting him either. I was a lot younger then and maybe wouldn't say we were in a proper 'de facto' relationship ?!?!!

If you're not sure you were in a de facto relationship, better to leave off the form.
