No medicals are not required again for 801. The police check you will need an AFP and any international ones where you have lived more than 12 months since the grant of the 820.

The reason for alot of documents is due to the amount of fraud happening. DIBP are trying to crack down on this.

Personally, yes it is alot of evidence to keep as I am use to throwing things out but I don't mind doing it if DIBP finds even 5 fraudulent relationships.

Hi
I was asked by my case officer to send more evidence supporting my application for partner visa which i sent them yesterday....
Does anybody have an idea what amount of time does a CO normally takes after receiving the evidence to make a decision....
Its been like 20 months since i applied so just a bit curious of how much more time it will take...
Thanks..

Hi har3478,

From reading other people's posts it can be as little as 1 day. If something is a formality like a police check, then they already made the decision, but need the complete set of documents.

If they want a particular type of evidence, it still shouldn't take them too long. I suppose it depends...

Thanks la.vie
They asked for more supporting docs..and i sent them what they asked in each section..
Its just that its been long and i am getting over the waiting thing now...
Its just so frustrating...

Hey guys,

Hoping for a bit of help. Immi emailed me today out of the blue, near 15 months after I sent my application, asking for more evidence on the length of de facto relationship, and evidence of (my) relationship with (my) de facto partner.

Our initial application had clear evidence of things like shared finances, evidence we lived together for the 12 months beforehand (my only worry was that it was the 12 month mark on the day I applied, as I was on a WHV), receipts, photos, family/friend statements, and the suchlike. We didn't realise the benefits of registering our relationship until too late, so we unfortunately missed out on that.

Does anyone have any advice on what, further, we could send them? I mean, we have a mountain of receipts for shared transactions (food shopping, new TV and the like), as well as many more photos, facebook/phone logs, etc. But what we already gave surely counts for more?

Also, how likely is it that this would lead to a rejection? I mean, it seems daft, given that we can prove we've been together for the entire 14 months since I applied, nevermind the 12 before.

What state do you live in? If you haven't gotten married and live in a state where you can register the relationship you can do it now. You can register the relationship any time until a decision is made.

Edit: Saw you live in NSW ... excellent! Go register your relationship today to be on the safe side.

It also sounds like they are after more evidence since lodging. Send them joint bank statements etc since you lodged as well as register your relationship.

Yea, I'm in NSW. Would registering the relationship now help? I thought the evidence was meant to pertain to our relationship prior to the date I applied?

If not, we'll just register, that's no problem.

Because you are right on the 12 months I would register it. Registering waives the 12 months evidence. It almost sounds like you don't have physical evidence of 12 months? Did you have a lease etc. I would register it to be safe.

Mark has posted that with de facto relationship registration can occur anytime until a decision is made.

Of course you still need the evidence but by the sounds of it they are querying the 12 months living together.

What evidence did you supply?

We had a thick folder of physical evidence. Shared bank account, lease agreement, all the suchlike.

We lived with her parents for a couple of months, at first, though. I'm wondering if that's the issue. Her mother did state in her statement that we'd lived with them (there's not really a way to prove it besides that).

Anyway. It seems like registering is the best option, and we can do that tomorrow. Given that there's at least a 28 day wait, and that immi have told me I have 28 days to respond, would it be likely I'd get an extension to that from immi, if I told them what's going on?

Edit: For living together we supplied her mother's statement, our lease agreement, shared bank statements showing living costs (e.g. supermarket) which we also provided receipts for.

To be honest we had quite a bit in. I was a bit miffed that it's been questioned, given how much we put in. Lol.

Mish 02-18-2015 03:30 AM

You can ask for an extension and provide them with the receipt.

Did her mother just say that you lived together or lived together as a de facto couple? I have heard of that being an issue if you don't use the right terms.

Do you have any mail addressed to you at her mum's place?
