Talking interdependency visa

hi...i was wondering if somebody could help me and my girlfriend coming to oz for a year on a working holiday visa from the uk and we know we have to live together for 12 months before we can apply for the interdependency visa but we where just wondering about the part that says you "must have a mutual commitment to a shared life to the exclusion of all others" does this mean we have to live in a house or unit of our own or can we live with my girlfriends mum at her house? were both just a little bit confuzzled about that part everything els we understand lol..hope somebody can help!

thanks holly and kels

I'm pretty sure "must have a mutual commitment to a shared life to the exclusion of all others" means that you are committed only to each other and will not date anyone else.

So it doesn't matter where you live or who you live with as long as you are in a lasting relationship with your partner

There's also the requirement re being in a continuing relationship and I suppose to some extent that doubles up with showing commitment etc.

Immi will be looking for a number of things that verify the relationship/commitment and with all partner cases it will include evidence of a couple having been together, having a common address, utility bills in common names and/or shared bank accounts etc., though no doubt there are many couples who may elect to keep separate bank accounts.
Living with the Gf's mother will also present difficulty in having utility bills as evidence too and in fact living together away from a parental home may be seen as a greater sign of commitment.

I also think that as you are coming on a WHV [intent to have a holiday with some work to help the funding thereof] you would want to have evidence of prior association/commitment too.

Yours is not necessarily going to be a clear cut case and if the Aussie is already back in Australia, a visit to immigration or at least a call on 131881 to have a chat about how it'll all be viewed and what immi will expect you to show would be well worth while in my view.

There's lots of good info in the archives on defacto relationships, which I suggest you have a look through.

One of the best forms of evidence for immigration is to have a property lease in both of your names. Getting utilities in both your names is also a good idea.

I would suggest getting a joint bank account even if you want to keep your previous bank accounts. Doing this really shows immigration your financial commitment to each other.
