Smile Help form 47sp - Past Defacto relationship...

Hi all,

quick question about question 62 on form 47sp... my partner (english) use to live with his ex girlfriend (also english) (4 year relationship which ended 4 years ago), do we need to answer yes for Q62 and give her name and relationship start and end date? They just lived together, never had any loans, joint accounts etc in both their names, only utility bills.

Any advice would greatly be appreciated

Thanks

Andie x

That sounds like a de facto relationship so you should probably include it. What's your reason for questioning if you should?

In my 820 application I included details of my partner's ex. It's still being processed so I'm not sure if they'll want to know more. But I doubt they will.

Hi Andie,

Sounds like a de facto (conjugal) relationship by your description, so Q62 will need to be completed with all the relevant details.

Thanks for your advice. The reason I ask is because my partner cant remember exact beginning and ending dates of their relationship, he knows the month roughly. He also can't remember her middle name (no its not on facebook). He does not really want to contact her to ask, i've told him just to bite the bullet it do it. We are applying for an offshore 309 visa x

Hi andie87
Its so important you write the details down to the DIAC, they dont contact the x partners but they do like to know about our past lives and relationships lol, talk about big brother but hey the best thing to do is write down from what year it started to what year ended, it will be classed as a defacto relationship. In the uk we call it a common law partner.

good luck

My partner couldn't remember the exact dates either, only years. So I actually wrote the first of January as start and end dates and included a note saying he was only really sure about the year (it was 13 years ago). I don't think they'll care that he doesn't remember her middle name. It makes sense that someone would forget a detail like that. I was lucky tracking down full name and birthday for the ex was painless because it was all on his son's birth certificate!

Yes, you do need to include it. Put in as much information as you know. What they are looking for is if your partner has ever sponsored anyone else for a partner visa. The fact that he had a long term girlfriend before isn't going to result in your application being rejected. I bet most people can't remember the start and end dates of their relationships, so an approximation is probably good enough.

I found it amazing how much information I still have in old emails and on facebook. For example, I was able to quite accurately give travel dates for the last 10 years because the "Travel" folder on my email still has confirmation of flight detail emails dating back that far. It's actually shocking how much of myself is stored online and on computers! I'm 26 so my adult life is pretty well documented, probably in part because I don't delete email, I file it.

Same! Though I pulled my travel dates from my passport stamps, I couldn't for the life of me remember every address I've lived at for the last ten years. Fortunately, Amazon has kindly saved every shipping address I've ever used, so I was able to reference that!
