Does anyone know if the marriage cert is absolutely necessary? Will a copy do? I don't see why proof of divorce can't also be proof of marriage! Please help.
Thanks in advance!
I've only attached proof of divorce and it must have been sufficient, as our partner visa was just granted (Sydney).

A quick question related to marriage and divorce certificates. Do these documents need to have anything like a 3 month validity or something of the like?
My partner doesn't have his original marriage and divorce certificates. He has certified copies that he ordered 4 months ago for other purposes, and we're hoping to apply for the Partner Visa in about 3 months. He's Spanish and in Spain they only consider those documents valid for 3 months after you receive them....Will the documents he already has on hand be considered valid by Australian immi?
