AoS--i don't get it!

So i have looked up on the immi and centerlink website but i dont quite understand who would need one.

Im confused because, in my case, my assests are not subtantial, but my BF's are very much so and he gets a very good salary at work. So, if we are recognized as defacto partners, hence sharing a life/finances together, why would the person who doesnt have substantial assests need one when their partner can obviously support them if needs be?

Do they look at qualifications too in order to assess if the person will be able to find work? Is combined or individual income they look at? If you end up needing an AoS, is it a hard/long process? It can't be the person sponsoring you/your partner or can it? Sorry i know its on the website but i just got confused...can anybody spell it out for me in plain english?heehee

thanks everybody!

I can only comment elkitten re what's mentioned about it on the application form [maybe more in the booklet too] - .

But to some extent I'd think immigration may be just having a clause in there as a cover for those as they say have high potential to be a user of social security benefits - for instance if someone was a long termed unemployed person and their partner was likewise.

It does say that the information on application forms can be used in assessment and yes I'd think that would also then mean looking at a sponsor's situation but simultaneously looking at the possibility of a successful applicant being a high user even if sponsor had a sound record/assets.

For it also doesn't discount a sponsor also being eligible to offer the A of S.

I would not be at all surprised to find it is something that does not often get invoked.

makes sense, makes sense. See i thought it was a common thing to happen so i was just trying to figure out the criteria so i could anticipate.

I doubt they will ask me for one though honestly...hmmmmm, we'll see, ill report back on it anyways.

Thanks for the explanation!
