We could get bank statements saying we paid our rent together. We do not have any joint bank account though. Bills were under the landlords name but we have receipts from paying our shares. We have photos proving my mum and my best friend have visited and met his family. We have postcards my best friend has sent us and we have an envelope sent to us with photos and our address on it from my best friend. Still an agent told me I don't have enough evidence! I was really stressed until I read this. I still don't know which one to go for though!
You need to be clear which visa are you applying. Is it a PMV or a partner visa?

I think you need to understand the process yourself, and not just listen to the migration agent (as he/she might make mistake or give out incorrect advice).

On this note, what happens if the initial contact was from email, then switched to an IM app on the phone where printing of the chat history is not possible?

How do you go about showing them evidence on paper that you have been in constant contact?

Hi Guys.

While we all want quick easy options to have our partners with us, there simply is none.

They are all long, painful and expensive - much to the disgust of us genuine applicants.

I spoke to a agent on Friday about several options ($570 for phone consultation)

The PMV option came in as a high POSSIBILITY approval at 6-12 month wait current is 9 months - this varies at embassies.
A estimate of $7,500 - $10,000 was given - I assume this included visa application costs but not sure - certainly not including airfares, medicals and other costs.

Sorry but you need this information too.
