Sally,
As I have said earlier, once the application is lodged you get to stay in Au as long as it takes to make a decision. You don't have to have a decision before your visa expires. Three months should be plenty of time, but then again, sometimes decisions are made on the spot and sometimes they do take six months. A lot depends on the workload of a particular officer and whether your matter is 'decision ready' when lodged.
Hope it helps.
Dorota

The main thing Sally is for the application presentation to be concise and clear, the easier it is for a CO to see that you comply with requirements the faster any processing will be.
It could be depending on your employment situation/history that an Assurance of Support is required, so have a look at the immi information/form and it may be advisable to discuss that with your parents just in case you may want them to be Assurers.

Hey everyone... Me again

Have another question. Have talked to my parents and arranged the following....

-BF has gotten his south australian licence done
-We have opened our joint bank account. From next week we will be paying out rent from that account as a direct debit to my mum, change car insurance into both names also come from that account.
-Did up a leave agreement with parents.

Questions-
- Parents dont want to change utility bills into our name. Would this be ok??
- We downloaded a rental agreement for free off internet. Would this be ok to use??

Thanks again

Hi,

It says 6 months, but I think that is the longest amount of time it could take. Of course, it depends on many things: where you are (some countries may be 'high risk' so COs need to assess cases thoroughly), if they need to do character checks, if your application is totally complete when you submit it, if you need to do medicals or police checks after you apply etc.

Some people have gotten it on the spot, but I guess they were in a simple situation and didn't have any other compicated issues that had to be dealt with. All you can do is submit it and wait to see what time frame your CO gives you.

Good luck

Hi again,

You said that you are going to pay the bills from the joint account, so don't worry if your parents don't want the bills in both your names. Just show the statements from you joint account as proof that you're paying the bills together. I have read advice from Migration Agents that say not to get caught up on having your names on all bills and accounts, leases etc, as long as you can show that you both contrubuted to paying them in some way.

Ok. thanks for that. We pay $150 a week and that includes the bills. And my parents dont want to change names on the bills because they have a good deal with most of them for being long term. But yeah.. on the lease i will just get my mum to note on it that we contibute to the bills everyone 3 months Thanks

All sounds good Sally and especially if utilities gets a mention as being included in the rental.
