Have you highlighted/made notes on the bank statements for important purchases? I doubt it's necessary, but I figured - anything I could do to make the process faster...

So for example, where we bought something big together, paid for rent/bills, gifts for one another, travel together etc.

Hi, just a very quick question. I've seen all over this forum people saying that they wrote "joint statutory declarations". How do you write a joint stat dec? Is there a special form? Or is it just a normal stat dec for with two names written in the name section?

Thanks a lot.

I had been thinking about this joint stat dec as well, until I saw these forms from the Immi site, one for the applicant and another for the sponsor:

http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/form..._applicant.pdf
http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/form...ec_sponsor.pdf

It is very specific and addresses the 4 categories of evidence an applicant and the sponsor need to provide (financial, nature of the household, social context of the relationship, nature of commitment to each other) for a partner visa application in 1 stat dec form, instead of having 4 separate forms per category or evidence.

Has anyone used these forms for an 820 application?

I couldn't open your link but I think I know which form you are talking about. That's the form for applying 2nd stage permanent partner visa. I don't know if you could use that for 820. If you wanna make a proper stat dec, there is a commonwealth stat dec form and I am pretty sure you can find a state version as well depending on the state you are in. When I applied for my 820, my hubby and I just typed and printed it out, and signed on it with no JP signature. I don't know how I got through that so don't do the same

I couldn't open the link either but just like ccpro we just typed, printed and signed it. I think that was ok because we were not asked for anything else.

Nobody has any idea about writing a joint stat dec? It comes up a lot on this forum, people saying "we wrote a joint stat dec explaining the *such and such*" within one of the 4 evidence sections.

I have actually never noticed people on this forum writing about joint stat decs. I think most people write individual declarations about their relationship. Is there a reason you want to write joint stat decs and/or don't want to write individual ones?

I think amjp is just talking about the stat decs some people choose to include in the front of each section of their application, talking about what is contained in that section. And yes, in that case, I believe people are just writing it out on plain paper and then both signing it.

Oh ok, blank paper and signed, thanks very much.
That was what I meant CollegeGirl, apart from the individual 'history of relationship' stat decs that we have written, just need to write a couple more at the front of the different sections to explain stuff that the evidence itself doesn't fully explain.

Sorry the link didn't work.

Thank you, ccpro. So I was jumping the gun... (I already prepared a Commonwealth stat dec.)

No, I don't think I want to do that (not have our statement certified). Your CO must've been all stat dec'd out -- good on you. Thanks again.

Thanks for all your responses.

P.S. This second time around (after PMV300, it's on to 820), I'm still not over the paranoia of the proper way to prepare a visa application!
