Your son is a citizen born in Australia, right? If so, yes, a certified copy of his full birth certificate will work just fine.

Is it mandatory that a birth certificate or a citizenship paper be provided with the witness statements?

You need to prove that the writer of the stat dec is the person he said he is. So, either a certified true copy of passport or other form of identification doc need to be attached.

And for applying partner visa, you need at least two form 888. You can give more if possible, it only make your case stronger.

If a person I know can not locate these documents, is there any point in asking them to write a statement?

My wife's father wrote a statement but isn't an Australian citizen, not even in Australia. Should I still submit this statement by him?

It is mandatory for statements written by Australian citizens or permanent residents. It is optional for everyone else. I would still include it, with some other type of Government-issued ID (like a driver's license) since you indicated he was not an Australian PR or citizen.

You can make it a stat dec by following the stat dec format of your country. I think it is not meaningful for a person that is not a Aus citizen or PR to fill in the form 888.

Sorry just looking for a quick clarification: (for 820 visa)

I know we need at least 2 Form 888's from Aus citizens/PR with certified copy of birth cert/passport attached.

We are also planning on getting extra stat decs from family/friends, a mixture of Aus and Danish citizens. Do we need to provide proof of identity docs along with these supplementary, extra stat decs?
