do our statements on our relationship need to be signed by a JP if they are on normal writing paper?

I believe the short answer is no, they do not to be signed by a JP. It just has to be signed and dated by the person making the statement (i.e. you and/or your partner)

My understanding is that for personal statements, you can either make a statutory declaration (which needs to be witnessed by a JP or other authorised witness) or just a statement on plain paper signed and dated by the person making the statement. Only statutory declarations need to be signed by a JP.

I think the reason why it's not compulsory for these personal statements to be in statutory declaration form is because when you and your partner sign your form 40SP and 47SP respectively you already declare that everything you include with your application is true and correct.

(But I'm no immigration expert!)

Applied for 820: 23 July 2013 (Onshore in Sydney, low risk country, decision-ready, with medicals and police checks)
820 granted: 11 September 2014
