I hope this quick process gives everyone hope! And good luck to everyone!

I am not sure if anyone remembers me. I applied in 2014 for my PMV, it was granted in 2015 after roughly 11 months of processing. My partner got married in March 2016. We applied for my 820 visa 31-May-2016 and it was approved within a few days. 31-May-2018 marks two years since our 820 application. I look forward to posting here again while gathering the required documents to apply for my 801 visa.

I can't help but feel disheartened when I see the waiting times are now ~20 months. It's so long to put our lives on stasis and not even know at the end if it will get approved or not. I know people say that if your relationship is valid then you don't have anything to worry about. But the fear that it will be rejected is always there.

My husband and I don't own property together, I didn't change my name, our car is registered in my name, all of our bills are in my name (I get them paid through salary sacrifice). Seriously, when I registered for all these bills, there was no option to list a second payee. I worry all these things will work against us.

I'm just throwing out there suggestions and hope someone with more knowledge can chime in.

How about putting some bills under his name this way you show that some bills are your obligation and some are his?

joint bank account is big in my opinion. Maybe open one up with both names on it. this is another proof you have to show.

How about naming him on your super? that is another form of proof.

not changing the name is ok. but you will need to provide proof that financially you two are in this together....but this is my opinion.

hope this helps

A lot of couples split things that way. Everything we have in is my husband's name but we're both on the lease. The vehicle is in my husband's name as well but we're both on the insurance. There are other ways to prove you live together or share finances. Government documents sent to your address (Medicare, centrelink, etc), shared insurance (vehicle, health, life, etc), forms that show each other as emergency contacts (work, schools, etc), stat decs from neighbors or a realtor of you rent, beneficiaries (super, wills, life insurance, etc), if you don't share bank accounts (not everyone does or believes in that... my partner and I have separate accounts but share a credit card and savings) then you can show purchases made in the relationship from your own accts (bills, household furniture, gifts for each other on special occasions, birthdays, holidays, etc) or transfers made to each other, and so on.

If the relationship is genuine, there will be plenty of evidence. It may not be the same kind of evidence as other people, but you should be able to find something if you look hard enough.

Name change isn't a big deal either. Many people choose not to bother until the Partner visa process is over and that has been recommended by RMAs before. I have plenty of friends even in the US that married and never changed names, so that's more of a personal or cultural choice. My passport is still in my maiden name because my son from a previous relationship still has my maiden name on his and it's just easier for us since we travel internationally a lot.

Hi both, thanks for taking the time to respond.

My husband and I lease an apartment and both of our names are on the lease as well as having correspondence from the real estate agents to our names. We also have joint bank accounts that everything comes out of.

Since we rent, we only really have four bills (netflix, electricity, internet, water). Water is in our landlord's name. The real estate agent we had for most of the time we live here was so incompetent that all of our water bill letters were addressed to "husband first name, my last name". Netflix is in my name but we have two accounts, one for each of us. I have electricity and internet in my name because of salary sacrifice (I work in a NFP and salary sacrifice is mandatory) but I have him listed as an authorized contact.

We bought our car outright together so no bills. My husband can't drive so we bought it in my name only and he's not on the insurance because he can't drive.

We don't have credit cards or phone bills because we have plans we just pay for our phone plan outright. We also don't have kids because we're still pretty young.

I didn't change my name because it was too much effort but I do have it listed as changed on Facebook and other informal places.

That wasn't an all inclusive list. Just an idea of some things (honestly there are probably a whole more) and that there are a lot of ways to find evidence if you really take a look at your day to day lives together.

High risk (vietnam)

Basically we had what everyone typically has (joint bills, bank statement etc.) and made sure we ticked all the boxes of the requirement. We did however travelled quite a lot to different countries every 6 - 9 months. Although I doubt having an extensive travel history would contribute to a fast application. I think it's really a draw out of the hat (definitely grateful we were lucky for this quick process) and that you have all info they need when they flip through an application.

And also we had an agent to help us out through this process (agents definitely doesn't speed things up! they only make sure your application is perfect when they submit it for you). Think we were also paper application since paper application is no longer available since last year, it is possible they;re clearing the backlogs of paper apps.

P.S I'm not 100% certain with how immi works, but that's just my thoughts of it. Hope it helped and good luck!

Do you have joint insurance like house insurance & health insurance?

You can include the page from both your tax returns that show your spouse.

Have you listed each other as beneficiaries on super?

You can list each other as authorized contacts on your ATO accounts and include that (you can do it online through mygov).

Do you travel? You can include boarding passes and joint travel bookings.

Have you made any joint purchases? You can include that.

Joint bank accounts is a huge plus - remember that.

There is also loyalty cards you can use. So for example you both have Woolworth reward cards and they are linked together so you show pictures of the cards & a screenshot of the accounts showing they are linked.

We showed both of our cards for the airline loyalty programs too.

Not sure if this means anything, but just logged into my immi to check out my 801, and my partner's name (and birth date) are now longer listed under "Applicants" on my "Application Home" page.

There was a system update planned for yesterday night so not sure if that was part of it; my application still lists as it being last updated on 17 Nov 17.

Anyone else note this change?

Same here, sponsor's name has been removed. But after the big update a little while ago, i thought it was strange that both our names appeared under "applicants", because I am the applicant and he is the sponsor, right? I can't remember seeing both names listed before the big update. So to me, it makes sense that they have removed it. When i click on "attach documents" both our names are still listed.
