Having documents certified was a wasted effort.

Do documents not require to be certified? I am following a excel spread sheet provided by a migration agent and was advised to certify everything? ( We are not using an agent, he said our case is straight forward as long as we follow instructions etc.)

Doesn't hurt that it has been done, anyways do you think we have covered all major items?

Thanks
Joss

We didn't get anything certified and had no issues. That's a hangover from paper applications that some people seem to hang onto or just follow old advise.

Glad to hear you had no issues, Thanks for this information.

Did you have to fill out forms 80SP and 40SP or because its processed online now it doesn't matter?

Getting a document that’s not in English translated and stamped by a qualified interpreter would also be referred to as getting a certified translation. But copies of supporting documents are generally not required to be certified except your 888 forms. That’s what my migration agent told me.

You do seem to have an exhaustive list of relationship evidence, but the overall quality, reasonability and consistency behind the documents also play an important part in a CO’s decision making. You basically need to knit a net using every piece of your evidence over the entire relationship span. It took us 6 weeks to gather and make that net with our migration agent, and we had at least 3 rounds of review for each and every statement just to make sure everything stays consistent as we had 10 years of evidence to sort through -.-|||

But every couple’s case is different, and not everyone need a migration agent. I’m sure your well organised documents and hard efforts will eventually pay off, best of luck~

Awesome, All documents are in English thankfully so that took a lot of hard work off our hands!

We have been gathering documents for some time now, having prior knowledge of what was needed thanks to the agents tips upon consultation helped.

10 Years! congratulations that absolutely amazing to hear We have been together for a year and married for 2 months now so the consistency was a lot easier to maintain as the information was still fresh in our minds.

Thanks for the information!

Yes approved both become PR. They asked for my police check overseas and my birth certificate.
