Nickname in AFP

Hi guys! Iíve got a request today for my 801 application to provide AFP under my nickname as the one provided was under my legal name. Iíve responded to the email explaining that all legal docs and govt records have the legal name and that the nickname is only used by my friends, families and colleagues. Iíve also told them Iíve had to provide this nickname in the application because a lot of supportings like screenshots from fb, msgs, letters etc are addressed under my nickname. Anybody had this issue with their application? Please note Iíve had no issues providing my nickname in previous applications (PMV and 820).

This is normal. The case officer would ask you to do the AFP with the names (including nickname) appeared in your application to make sure you have a clear record. You need to put all the names required when you submit the AFP application.

Coz I was just wondering on what scenario would a govt body and Police records show my nickname when it doesnít form part of any legal documents.

Anyway Iíll just pay another $43 and get a new one.

Lucky I donít have a funny nickname like Big Dog!

If someone you know, or knows you only online, and only knows you by that nickname, and they had a legal issue with you, the police, etc. would only have that name on the records.

I wonder how many people are wondering what the nickname is..
