De Facto Visa - lack of finance evidence


I am in the process for applying for a de facto visa. Me and my partner met 4 years ago and have been in a relationship for 2 years. My partner moved to London to be with me but we did not live together. We have now been living together for 3 months but only at his moms house. We do not have any bills or rent together.

We have enough social evidence and transfer of money between us but I'm just worried this won't be enough

has anyone been in a similar situation and have any useful tips?

We are under pressure to submit the application but i don't want to rush it and end up getting refused.

Thanks in advance

Unless you only deal in cash, you will have more evidence than you think.

Check things like ebay and paypal even supermarket receipts for male/female items.

Hi Melissa

Have you been on any holidays together? You could submit flight/hotel booking receipts featuring both of your names and paid for using the one credit card.

In your statutory declarations you should explain how you share expenses (eg, does one person pay for groceries and the other pays for bills?) You should then back this up by providing evidence of these transactions in your bank statements.

Kind regards

No I paid everything but she had a small income working full time.

I spent more on smokes a month than she made a month in fact it was close to twice the amount she made.

Lucky I gave up that $60 a day habit. Sadly I smoked more on weekends (= 1 pack extra a day)

Instant stop - Peter Zapfella will be 3 years this May, never missed them and was instant.
