Bank account enquiry

My partner and I are about to apply for a de facto visa beginning of March we have been together since 2006. He is currently on a student visa which expires in March. Our problem is that we are 2 months short of the 12 month requirement for having a joint bank account. When we first came back to Australia (I lived in his country for 2 years with him) we thought he could apply for a skilled migrant visa but the immi changed the requirement and he was short of points so we decided to go down the de facto route. We live together (since January 2009) in the house I bought and have some bills in both our names plus some other documents and stat decs from family and friend.
I'm worried whether this would affect our situation? Should I be worried?
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

The joint bank account is not the sole indicator nor deciding factor as to whether a relationship exists and it would also be ideal if you had some documentation of earlier time together.

Have a good read of the eligibility section including links and Booklet #1 to get an idea of the range of what type of information is required/useful and even reading some earlier threads on this page will give you some ideas.
There's a Sticky thread by elkitten and what she did for success, she having also had a long term relationship spread across two continents.
