Just for the record - I don't know you, your partner, or your relationship together - but what the others are saying is that Immigration/DIAC sees a difference between a "dating phase" and a "commitment phase".

There are not really black-on-white definitions of this difference, but things such as the difference between "boyfriend" and "partner", and the difference of intensity between regular communication and joint finances of some kind - they do matter.

So even though your Skype, chat and whatnot history is very helpful, it might not be sufficient. If you'd have only that - and I don't know if you do - you'd probably end up falling into the "dating" category.

"Committed" couples fully share their lives and all intentions for their individual and joint futures. Although DIAC recognizes not everyone has the option of living together (especially international couples), they are still interested in some form of shared finances. Supporting each other financially, gifts, maybe saving money together, receipts of joint purchases of some kind.

I'm only saying this because your original question was "how to prove a long distance de facto relationship", and from your posts I wasn't 100% sure if you understood fully what people were implying here - which is that you might be in trouble evidence-wise, and we can help you figure that out fully if you're willing to elaborate so we can help you estimate how good your evidence is.

I still suggest talking to a migration agent. I have gotten the impression that DIAC is a lot less strict with the evidence for partners who are included on applications in migration streams other than family.


I am not a migration agent, just a fellow victim of the system.
