801 Visa documents help

Hello everyone,

I would appreciate some advice as my husband and I are will be applying for an 801 partner visa from the 820 visa in early August.

We will have plenty of evidence that we are a happily married couple living together such as stat decs and support letters from numerous family and friends, a stat dec statements from my parents about the nature of our household and our contributions (we happily live with them) our relationship statements, photos, marriage certificates and general ID documents. We are of course prepared to give any police clearances, etc as they are asked for.

We have a joint bank account. However, we as yet do not own any “major assets” together as yet. Finding a steady job hasn’t come easy to my husband since moving here and he studied for some time and just as he was starting to look for work with his new qualifications, the COVID 19 hit. There were next to no positions advertised and he also lost his casual position occasionally working for a family friend. Thankfully, positions are now starting to come up here and there and he is applying hard. We do have a car but it is in my father’s name and at the moment, we can’t afford the stamp duty to transfer it into our name. Our mobile phones are also prepaid accounts in our seperate names as we find this the most economical way to do it at this time. Currently, we don’t have life insurance or anything like that as we simply cannot afford the premiums at this time. Our parents have us written as executors to their estate in the will. We also have joint ambulance cover.

While our relationship evidence is strong, the latter paragraph worries me.

Is our lack of “joint ownership” of things something for us to worry about with the 801 visa?

This is a big concern for us as we suffered long and hard (with waiting) for our PMV and despite the hiccup with jobs, we are happily settled here.

If anyone could give advice about documents or evidence, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reading and I hope everyone is safe and sound

Sarah.

We had no joint major assets, when we did the 801. Nor any joint super etc. We do have joint Flybys, consecutive card numbers, that we supplied a photo of.

We did have some photos together in furniture shops, looking at new sofa etc.

My wife was also not working. We had some envelopes addressed to her, and myself showing us at the same address.

Proof of relationship is important, but you seem to have covered that. Don't over worry..

Do you have reciprocal wills?

Don't over worry! You seem to have plenty of evidence to support your application.

You've already got the 820, so I think that's the major step.

Have a great future together!

We didn't have wills either.

However, depending on your personal situation, you might want to have them anyway, in which case it is a good push to do them.

Having joint wills is another proof of relationship, financial aspects. Maybe not essential, but possibly handy. Some people definitely recommend them for a visa application.

For personal reasons, having a will might also be recommended.

I would google for a free will kit, maybe find some examples, and copy one.

It depends how simple or complex your situation is.

I haven't checked this one, but it could be interesting.
