Hello,

I am on the same boat, we will also include:

medicals ( I have from the maternity letters, hospital appointments etc for all of us )
school ( nursery included- applications or letters, emails, pictures etc)
poling cards
bank statements
tenancy agreements

and I do have included purchases during our last 6 years together (having more online accounts like Amazon, Ebay etc, so I can go back in time and prove most my purchases-shoes, furniture, kids clothes and also do have groceries accounts).

Vicky

Hi Vicky,

Good to have you on boat for this. For us, we split the photos into different files that cover different periods of our life since dating to now. We actually have planty of photos, with only us or with many friends, so I think this is not an issue.
Medical: we have private health insurance or ambulance insurance together when we lived together in Australia.
We have some online accounts together too: flybuys, also her name appears in my centrelink account, my super etc..
Cheers,

Question

Hello Danny,

We have done this application in 2016, never sent it off, so I was pilling documents since that days, plus I always keeping all sorts of stuff , documents, old emails, pictures, receipts just in case I will need them in future. So I just have found these 2016 files for our 309 visa and now just redo some of them or most of them.

We have 2 kids, they are now only British, but we will apply for their Australian citizenship after we apply for 309 visa as we need to solve my partner Australian passport renewal first.

So what we are planning is just to make a note about it in our statements and when we receive their citizenship status and also their Australian passports we will upload them later on while we wait for my visa.

The citizenship application is online I may be able to include some sort of confirmation already now when I apply for 309 - I hope so


I try to keep the files some sort of together, not so many pictures and we will not upload anything like Facebook or messages or phone conversation.


I do not want to go crazy with all of it, I am just trying to make it easy to follow and easy to find evidence for what I am saying in my statement. ( I hope this make some sense).

Sorry, I am not good writer, but I think I have same evidence as you, I may be just working on names for the files, as the files may be rejected if I use spaces etc. Not always, some people had problems some not. So I just naming them without the spaces and special signs etc. Our last task will be only the relationship statements, so I believe we are almost done, just polishing, highlighting

Vicky

PS: I usually put year next to it, so for ex. Medicals2014-2018 or similar so its easy to track or read. Some of them I leave itself as file some of them I merge together.

Your situation and mine are very similar, we have been in a long-term relationship but due to some persomal reason, we only can (will) lodge the application at the end of this month. We used to live together 4 years in Melbourne and have quite a lot of 'mutual' information together, so I am not worried too much. However, it is always good to check with you guys in case I am missing something.
But all good, I will finalize things and submit the application by the end of this month.
Cheers,
Phuong

Hello,

Our immigration lawyer also recommended we supply chat transcripts, cards to/from each other and from others to us as a couple, and even plane tickets to and from places if both of our names were on a single booking. Any further evidence that you do things together I think is helpful, as long as it's significant/relevant!

I include 2000 pages of facebook chat history. Hope they have time to read them all (the file <5 Mb anyway, so I just leave them like that)

If they read that lot, it might extend your processing time...
