Hi. I applied from overseas and I've been out of the country for well over a year - but I've lived in Australia previously for seven years and am married to an Australian citizen and the father of another one...

Hi Shisa,

I am preparing the statement to claim discretion 5.

I have Australian husband (married for 10 years) , Australian kids studying in year 3 and 5, but no property in Australia (renting house), lodge tax return for minor saving interest, no Australian employment record , attend kids' school events...

I am not sure if I have strong association with Australia ..so may need to consult you...

Based on Citizenship Policy Document, if applicants stay in Australia for at least 365 days during the 4 year period, more weight should be given to indicated supporting factors.

Providing you stayed in Australia less than 365 days during your 4 year period, may I know your stronger point to claim close and continuous association with Australia while ur overseas ? your advice would be highly appreciated.

Hi whtzau,

My husband and I have a small business in Australia so I gave them documents to show that the business is up and running although I wasn't in Australia. Also, I gave them tax documents showing that I paid my taxes. I wrote a statement explaining the reasons why I was not in Australia.

What did you use as close ties with Australia if you don't mind me asking?

Too much to write here But if you work through their list of typical items, it's reasonably obvious. Like they talk about property - so you have either a lease or a mortgage/title deed. Or for children, you would have their birth certificates and passports. Maybe you have a business...company tax returns etc.
