Smile Defacto Subclass 820

Hello guys! I知 so glad I found this website 😊 Anyways, I知 22 years old from the Philippines and my partner, Australian, is 23. We just lodged our application (Defacto onshore) this month and already have a bridging visa but will be effective on Feb 2018 since I知 still on tourist visa at the moment which will expire on Feb. We are currently living with his parents in their own house and we have been de facto for 8 months now. We already registered our relationship for us to apply for this visa. My concern is, I知 afraid we are not going to prove that we are in a defacto because we don稚 have bills that are named after us because again, we池e still living with his parents and they support our needs too, e.g. paying house bills. How can we prove that we are in a defacto relationship? Thank you so much to everyone who will help us. Godbless!

Have you paid the fee and began to upload the necessary documentation required for your application? If you are afraid you can't prove you're de facto why would you submit the application on that basis? That's a lot of money to waste if you can't prove you're in a de facto relationship. Do you and your partner have any joint activities? Joint bank accounts/credit cards/loans? Mail that is addressed to either of you or both of you at his parents home? Birthday cards addressed to both of you, pictures, social media activity with friends and family? There is a lot that goes into applying for this (or any) visa and isn't something you should apply for on a whim and hope for the best. There is a lot of work that goes into it, many hours in fact.

How long have you been a couple? Have you only been together 8 months, or living with his parents in a de facto relationship for 8 months?

Did either of you read the partner migration handbook? If not, I would suggest doing that as well.

Honestly, there isn't a lot to go on here, your best bet and probably safest one too, is to contact a RMA in Australia and seek help with this before it's too late.

These message boards have been a life saver for my partner and I. The amount of times we have revised our application on the advice of the people on here has saved our asses. You're in the right place, but without more information, it's hard to figure out where you are and what you need to this point.

We decided to get the defacto because that's the best option we have. We're not engaged yet, nor married. We don't have mails that are named after us but we have wedding and birthday invites. We have a lot of photos too thanks so much for responding.

How long ago did you pay the fee? Or did you?

Registration of the relationship waivers the requirement of having to be in a de facto relationship for more than 12 months. Lucky you have done that or it would have had to have been refused.

However it does not waiver any of the evidence required in the 5 categories of relationship evidence you require. To be honest to gather that in 8 months is a challenge.

How long have you known your partner and when did you first meet?

Evidence you don't have is irrelevant. Can you supply what evidence you have from being in a de facto relationship?

Thanks for commenting! Anyway, we have been in a relationship for 20 months now and we first met last June 17, 2016. After that, our second meeting was September 2, 2016. The last visit was January 23, 2017 then we flew together here in Australia last January 30, 2017. For now, we can only supply the invitations (wedding and birthday), photos, drivers licence which states that we both have the same address, and joint bank account which we only made today.

I definitely think you will need more evidence as a defacto relationship. You should not have paid for it until you have more forms of evidence to submit, but now that you've paid I would just gather us much things as I possibly can. Do you have any more mail addressed to your house? Include all photos wit friends and family, do you have statutory declarations by support witness? You need these from Australian citizens.

Read the information on the immi website to gain more knowledge of the requirements

Hi! Photos and statutory declarations are not a problem because everyone in his family is willing to do it

we have been in a relationship for 20 months now.

* 20 months is much better than 8 months to gain evidence.

we first met last June 17, 2016.

* How long was this for and who knew about it and how?

After that, our second meeting was September 2, 2016.

* Again how long was this for and who out of family and friends knew about it and how?

The last visit was January 23, 2017 then we flew together here in Australia last January 30, 2017.

* What was put on DIBP departure and arrival forms for both of you for marital status and addresses while abroad?

For now, we can only supply the invitations (wedding and birthday),

* Joint invitations are good with a few photos to support.

photos,

* Don't over do photos - look up how best to do this as multiple per page in one file.

drivers licence which states that we both have the same address,

* You need more than this - any online shopping? mobile phone??

and joint bank account which we only made today.

* A few months ago gives this more weight, how were you both dealing with money? in particular payments for things?
