You want the one that says "Stage 1." It's the very same application for all types of partner visas & PMV. Stage 2 is what you'll use after you've held your 820 for 2 years and are ready for your permanent residency. "Sponsorship for a Partner" is what your sponsor needs to use for your 820.820 Temporary Onshore - Waiting Room!-screen-shot-2016-04-16-5.36.10-pm.jpg

There will be a question when you go through the application that will ask if you're currently holding a prospective marriage visa. Obviously you'll need to say yes to that.

Thanks! I hope that works. I'm just so stressed right now everything is not going as planned (regarding collating all updated information). I tried to be on top of keeping information up to date on my computer so I would only need to print everything out but I got caught up in all my assessments with my studies I fell behind

Applied for 820 in June 2015 online.

Being together with my partner since 2009, we registered de facto relationship in 2011. I've lived in Australia for 10 years. I am from a low risk country. Currently in grad school (had student visa the whole time).

What we uploaded other than minimum requirements:

De facto Victorian certificate

Copy of joint bank account (we had it just for the sake of having it but we generally used individual bank accounts).

Record of daily expenses to show that we have been halving bills, groceries etc though.

Screenshot showing that we are preferred beneficiaries (not legally binding) of each others super.

Summary of Facebook timeline showing development of our relationship since 2009 - emphasised that we know each other's family, friends etc.

5 witness statements; one from our mutual friend, one from my partner's sister, one from my partner's cousin, one from my partner's father, one from my brother (even though he is not Australian permanent resident)

I did all medical examination and police check right at the start.

I thought June was best time to apply since it is the final month of financial year.

Got told in Jan or Feb that I progressed in queue, then reminded to upload everything by 10th April in March for a chance to be approved by June. Got two emails on 11th, one for 820 and one for 801.
Just a quick question, in regards of the record of daily expenses etc, how did you show this? me and my partner have a joint account where we put money into it monthly (for him as he gets paid monthly) and weekly (for me) to cover rent, bills, insurance, car registration etc etc. but we generally use our own accounts for day to day spending. We don't exactly keep a full track of who should pay who back etc as it's become rather seamless now where i buy groceries and maybe he'd pay for dinner on a night out etc. Not sure how i could show all of this without sending in half a million copies of bank statements.

Our situation is similar and we showed statements from all of our accounts. I believe we didn't give every single statement, but made a selection over time from every account to show how many joint accounts we have, how long the joint accounts were open, as well as expenses that clearly supported the both of us from our individual accounts going back to early in our relationship. We provided a separate financial aspects statement to explain all this briefly and tie the various sets of evidence together because we've lived in different countries, and supported each other while one was only studying and the other working.

This makes me a bit worried. We have applied the other day for onshore partner 820 and only included out joint account bank statements, not personal ones. However, we only used that as a savings account for travel, wedding etc. It clearly shows the interaction of the joint account with both our personal accounts with money going in and out. BUT it doesn't have stuff like grocery shopping, meals out, etc. We lived in the UK before coming to Australia 2 months ago and one of us would get groceries for the evening on the way from work pretty much every day without keeping track who bought what. It would be a nightmare to highlight those...Plus my husband prefers to pay cash rather than on card so wouldn't be bale to prove those purchases.

Do you think the joint statement that we have had for 2.5 years now with monthly activity on it is enough?

Please try not to worry! Firstly, if you recently applied you still have time to upload more supporting documents. Secondly, each applicant's situation is different, hence so too will be the components of their applications. Two and a half years of joint statements sounds very solid - you both contribute to the account and pay for major shared purchases from it. In my case, we wanted to establish the length of our relationship in order to go straight to 801, and this in part required explanation of our unusual finances early in the relationship with one person having no income while studying and the other supporting. Again, even then, we only provided a sampling of bank statements. For example, for one joint savings account we provided only three statements selected from a four year period. They showed some significant deposits and withdrawals for key purchases. Thirdly, these are only some of the financial documents you can share. Bills, joint tax returns, beneficiary statements and major purchases also contribute. I hope that helps.

Thanks GadoGadoGal, that helps a lot. I think we have a strong set of evidence but at the same time it's natural for us to compare our application with what others have included in theirs and think of what we may have missed. But you're right, everyone's situation is different, it's just such a stressful process for everyone involved!

Another question for you guys, did any of you certify all your copies of villa, bank statements etc (obviously we should certify stay decs and photocopies of ID etc but was wondering about the other stuff)

I did this for the application at the start not knowing what I should do. But now that I'm updating documents, was wondering if it was worth hassling the police again. Haha
