Applying for a 309 Visa (any help appreciated)

Hi all!

My partner and I are currently in the process of our application for a 309 partner visa. we are going to be applying from outside Australia. We have been having some concerns as to whether we need more information to go along with it or if we have a strong enough case already. With the price tag so high, you can understand why a 2nd opinion would be handy!

to sort of quickly sum up-

I'm a 26 year old British Male and my partner is a 28 year old Australian female. We met just under 3 years ago while we were both on WHV's in Canada. we became in a De Facto relationship a month after that. We spent the 2 years in Canada together and then we flew over to Australia in August last year, where i was on a WHV. Throughout the time there we lived together, with her family and in our shared accommodations. We have just flown over to the UK a few weeks back for a friend of mines wedding, and with my Visa now expiring. As she has already had a working holiday visa for the UK, she is currently staying with me at my parents house and is just here for another few weeks before flying home. I have the full intention of going back over when if accepted.

Does being apart over seas hinder our chances at all?
We intend to attach a document explaining why we are currently living apart and that it isn't for long term.

-we have statements of a joint bank account we shared while over in Australia.
- joint flight information, photos, emails, phone calls, joint invitations etc.
- we have 3 888 forms all filled out by different member of her family (all who i have met and spent a considerable amount of time with)
- written evidence from my friends and family.

Just looking for some feedback on how our case looks mainly. Want to make sure we get everything all together and correct before applying.


Thank you in advance

I think u have a very good case, it will be stronger if u back it up with loads of relevant evidence to fulfill the four required pillars of relationship(financial, mutual commitment, social and nature of household).. u guys lived for two years in cananda, of which i believe u ave lots of evidence to back it, from utility bill to lease agreement etc., again u lived with her family , u can also.gather evidence from there, if one of ur form 888s could be a family member of hers who would state in the form that u lived with them for X duration of time, .. its all about sufficient evidence to back it all up.

Social trips together including the wedding u guys attended, pictures of it should be included in your application. I will suggest you create timeline of all your trips together in a single pdf file, in chronological order with table of contents , evidence including hotel accomodation or travel tickets. It makes it easier for a case officer to follow it and hence making it faster as well. You can create another file for all financial aspect of the relationship and with a table of contents and the same for social as well. You have very good case by the way. I wouldnt worry if i was you as long as you gather all your evidence. Your case seem like a straight forward one

Being apart doesnt hinder your chances at all, just explain why you guys were apart, they will understand. And include in your application, evidence of communication while apart. This part is very important
