Ok so the process has started finally ive got off my butt and gathered all the info together below is a list of the things i have enclosed is this enough or would you say i need to add more info.


photos of how we first met
photos of holidays before marriage
photos of wedding NO INVITATIONS we had a quiet wedding
Job contract showing im in part time employment
All nursing certificates from Australia
Tax number
bank statements before and after marriage showing address the same as husbands, including his bank statements
Utility bills in my name and joint names
stat decs from all parties including mine and husbands
documentation showing i had container from Malta to Australia with all my belongings.
Documents showing passports and visa,s of cats being imported from Malta

form 47sp
form 40sp
stat decs 888 from friends and relatives x 5




certified copies
marriage certificate
divorces marriage certificate and nisi
documents of husbands approval of stay in Australia
naturals father birth certificate
natural fathers death certificate
my birth certificate showing my birth name
adoption papers for me showing change of name
marriage certificate of first marriage

do you think this is enough for the DIAC for the second stage or should i show more evidence. The problem is im not that photogenic and i hate photos, my husband is 57 and doesnt really socialize so pictures with friends are really non existent.
Please do you think i have enough evidence or do i need to worry lol.

thanks guys

What did you provide for your PMV? I would give them all of that plus marriage certificate, wedding photos and joint stuff and extra evidence between PMV and 820 like holidays etc.

I notice that you don't have anything like chat extracts etc for when you were apart, I would include those items.

Also I think don't think employment contract etc are necessary at all for the applicant. All it shows is that you are working, it doesn't show that the relationship is genuine. People come here all the time to work.

Also never give your TFN unless it is asked for by someone who needs it. DIAC do not need it so do not give to them. When I did my PMV I blacked out my TFN as I do not want anyone steeling it - I have worked with identity theft so am very conscious of these things.

Good-luck

U font have to go just join around 10$ each

Thanks never thought about the TFN and identity theft. I used this as it shows the address so i will black this out. we havent being on a Holiday abroad since we came over to Australia firstly because we have had so much to do and an expensive few months, and secondly ive being working most days. We have being away in Australia for a few days but we didnt take photos of both of us together. we can show credit card details of places we stayed in like hotels ect.
Thanks Louiseb

Now the subject of being part of a club is a good point for most people but my husband is 57 im 46 and we enjoy life at home and together, my husband is not one for socializing bless him he prefers a quiet life lol, he hates footy. I dont want to join clubs just to pretend that we go because we dont, dont get me wrong our lifestyle isnt boring but as far as my hubby is concerned he wants to live a quiet easy life relaxed at home playing his computer, Due to him having a massive heart attack in the UK when we went abroad he became reclusive to be honest i believe he scared of being away from home just in case.

What about the library or video store? Unless you watch or read everything online?? What about flybuys or everyday rewards cards??

IMO DIAC should not frown on people who do not go out, some people just aren't social people.

we have spotlight membership cards lol. As for dvd,s my husband must have the biggest collection of dvd,s i have ever seen to date he has about 4,000 dvd,s we have a cinema in the house yes a cinema with all the latest gadgets. My husband lived his life like a recluse taking care of his parents, now they have passed away he is still stuck in his ways bless him. He doesnt eat out much maybe once in a while and even thats a hungry jacks. He isnt a social person as he says he has everything he needs at home. He has never smoked or drank so bars and clubs are a big no no, he really is a quiet loving husband who wants nothing more than to cuddle up on the sofa with a good movie.

You're going to be fine, louise. They've already decided you're a genuine couple when you applied for the PMV, and 99% of PMV to 820 applicants are approved! So take a deep breath.

Here's what I'm planning to do when it's (hopefully!) my turn to do the same thing -

I'm going to separate my application into an "Identity Documents" section, and four other sections, one for each category of evidence: financial aspects, the nature of the household, social context of the relationship, and the nature of our commitment to each other. Each of these sections will have a brief statement on the front of it giving a summary/index of what's there and what it represents.

Then, each of those four categories will be split into two sections: "Evidence Provided for Original Subclass 300 Application" and "New Evidence."

My theory is that the person looking at this will pretty much be looking to rubber-stamp the old information we provided (just to make sure they agree with the previous CO at a glance) and then look a little more in-depth at our new evidence (wedding pics, marriage cert, new bank account together, etc.) to ensure we've really married, combined households, and combined finances.

I definitely agree that you need to provide basically all the same evidence you provided for your PMV (well, not old out-of-date stat decs, obviously). Include conversations you had about your future, cards you sent each other, etc. Make sure you pull all the best evidence from your PMV out for this. If you included a lot of chat logs to prove you'd stayed in touch, etc., I think you could be more selective with the ones you originally submitted with your PMV. Definitely include a selection to demonstrate you were still in touch while your application was being processed, up until the time you were together, though.

Thanks CG
to be honest both kevin and i were not apart at all, after my first visit and we decided to commit to each other when i left Australia ( because of the visa) he came back to Malta with me. whenever i had to leave he came with me until we finally decided to pack everything from Australia and move to Malta where i applied for the PMV visa, he was by my side all the time. since we met i believe i only had 1 week away from him. I have sent all the details to the DIAC in the original application showing them that we never left each others side.

Hopefully it will be ok fingers crossed lol.
Thanks for your advice
Louiseb
