de facto relationship proof

Hi Can you please help?? I am from Hawaii and living in Australia with my girlfriend. We have been together for 7 months. We live together, share living costs, have registered our relationship, have phone bills, photos, lots of evidence, everything is legitimate except we have been together less than 12 months. We have filled out the de facto application but are wondering if we should submit it as its been less then 12 months will we be automatically denied?? If we submit and pay and it gets denied do we forfeit the fees?? We don't know what to do and are getting extremely confused. Any help you can give is very much appreciated. Do we submit if our relationship is less then 12 months??

Firstly, you should not have the "No Further stay" condition on your current visa. Further, if you have registered your relationship with an Australian authority such as a registry of births, deaths and marriages, the 12 months de-facto relationship requirement may not apply. According to the DHA site these are the basic requirements:

you are not married to each other
you are committed to a shared life to the exclusion of all others
your relationship is genuine and continuing
you live together or do not live separately and apart on a permanent basis
you are not related by family

Yes!

May I suggest that, before you proceed, you consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for an assessment of your case?

If that is the case, donít you think it is a good idea to get some professional advice rather than risking a refusal and losing close to 8k?

Hello everyone,

I will apply for 820 with my Australian boyfriend. We registered our relationship here not too long ago. We are living together however I am only an 'occupant' on the lease, not the tenant. Is this enough proof to show that we have been living together? We will also get a joint bank account soon that will be mailed to our shared address. I am wondering if these two piesces of evidence are enough. Thank you very much in advance.

Wrussell 'not a chance' is surely not the most helpful advice. You could at least explain your point.

You posed a question and I replied.

I have almost given up trying to explain the ins and outs of migration law, a mostly pointless exercise that wastes my time and does little to improve a prospective applicant's chances. Nowadays I simply tell people and they can believe me, or not.
