It's perfectly okay to write your statement about the history of your relationship on plain paper. We did get ours certified, but there's some debate here as to whether even that is necessary. We did it just to be on the safe side.

I believe a Commonwealth of Australia Statutory Declaration is what you would need to use for your historical statement, which appears on this link:
http://www.ag.gov.au/Publications/Do...rationform.pdf

However, while I was researching for information about your query, I stumbled on 2 Statutory Declaration forms I had never encountered before:

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

One is for the applicant while the other is for the sponsor. 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).

Now I have a question -- does anyone know when these versions of Stat Dec forms for a partner visa application need to be used? I didn't even know these forms existed! Are these the stat dec forms that even chrisj should use? HELP!
those forms are just another option. You can write your own stat dec.

Hey all, just got the checklist for the partner migration visa sent to us from the Australian Embassy in Vientiane Laos and this is what it says about the Statement.

- A written statement signed by you and your sponsor detailing the history of your relationship.

Where a Joint statement is not possible we will accept separate statements.

is this correct? it goes against all the advice given in the post so far. should we just stick to making separate statements anyways?

That is bizarre. DIAC says specifically that you have to include separate statements and that if they suspect each person didn't write it themselves they will ask you to redo them. Maybe contact the embassy for clarification. Each embassy has their own requirements, but they're usually in addition to DIAC's, not contradicting them.
