Its so intense working out what you have and labelling it all up trying to satisfy their needs.

Thanks for all your assistance guys.

Time to tread very carefully

I seldom attach more than 30 to 40 files. That’s easily achievable by combining multiple documents into a single PDF . Mind you, I have seen plenty of cases where applicants ( or amateur “agents”) have attached 30 separate photographs and even forms 888 are uploaded as 5 separate files.

Thanks Nick, i guess we got sucked in to providing as much as possible to satisfy their needs and then as you work your way down its very easy to find yourself hitting the 60 limit, IF things haven't been combined into one document....
I can supply docs as part of my 40SP form i suppose, but much of what was asked for in the applicants list is not listed in mine.

Could i include things that they asked my partner to supply, such as divorce certificate etc?

Cheers

What you need to do is to submit an application that is very well presented and easy for the Case Officer to process. Opening up +60 files of much the same takes lots of time, one well organized file of like evidences and well explained if required takes much less time to process.

Even the fact that your process fee is $7,000 your Case Officer is not allocated very much time to process it - it is around the 5 hour mark, so make it easy for them.

Obviously they will be able to go beyond the allocated process time, but I expect they need to justify it to the supervisors or refuse it on so flimsy but allowable grounds.

No you are not the first to hit 60 then panic - one couple hit 60 and his wife used most of them to upload photos.

Just add the remaining documents under the sponsor. Just make sure you label the documents clearly, so they can be easily identified. If the divorce certificate consists of multiple pages, make sure it is saved as a single pdf file. Do not upload it as seperate pages.

There is no way you would need another 60 uploads, if you properly organise your documents.

If in doubt about the various categories, just upload them under "other".

Hey everyone,

Is there a total application file size limit or is it per an uploaded slot? If so, what was the file size limit? I'm in the process of saving all my docs for upload and want to ensure they meet the size requirements.

Thanks in advance.

Probably a good idea to read this and this about attaching documents to online apps before starting or continuing.

This link here has some pretty good info too.

In relation to uploading documents - would it possible to group them under headings as follows:

FINANCIAL_JointBankAccount
FINANCIAL_LeaseDocuments
FINANCIAL_Joint Expenses

NATUREOFHOUSEHOLD_PhotosOfHousehold
NATUREOFHOUSEHOLD_ShareExpenses
NATUREOFHOUSEHOLD_ElectricityBills

...continue in this format for each other category.

In addition, would it suffice that bills, documents were screenshot and put into word, converted to a PDF and uploaded that way? (most of my utilities and statements are all emailed so don't require scanning).

For statements, would it be OK for each partner to write the following:
1. History of Relationship Statement
2. Evidence of relationship statement - pertaining to each of the four boxes on the application (financial aspects, nature of household, social context, commitment to each other).

Then instead of filling in each box just put a statement saying "Please refer to applicant statement titled 'XYZ', subsection 1.2 Financial Aspects of Relationship"

Would it be ok to upload these as one complete PDF statement each with subheadings for each component?

Thanks!

There are many different ways of doing this. Multiple JPG files can be copied into a word doc, which can then be saved as a PDF.

Emailed invoices (if in pdf format) can be joined into the one file.

I suggest not combining important documents like personal statements with other documents, but present them by themselves.

On the other hand, relationship evidence can be joined and presented under different categories: hotel bills, plane tickets and other evidence of joint travel into one file, joint memberships, invitations and other social activities in another file and so on..

The main thing is to limit the number of files and make it easily accessible to a total stranger who is going to assess your application.

Also take care that the various documents can be easily read, are in the correct order and lay-out. There is nothing worse to wade through someone's stuff when documents are saved sideways, upside down or in random order.
