Thank you very much. In my case, my case officer only emailed me and my partner for requesting for more additional document.

thanks and actually I was aware of that as I sponsored my ex wife on a PMV in 2014 . . But the applicant from Thailand used the partner visa method and I wondered how
able to satisfy the joint finances test as presumably sponsor and partner were not in
same country . I assume the case officer tries to be reasonable and looks at the
circumstances and realises people can not do the IMPOSSIBLE .

Perhaps start your own thread rather than jumping on one that has nothing to do with either of your 2 options?

Domestic relationship cer
 
Hi guys,

I'm not sure if I need to do this certificate before applying for 820 and been confused about Visa Verification as one of requirements. Anyone here knows about this?

:confused: thanks

actually my questions had everything to do with what I asked as applicant from Thailand about as he or she
applied for a partner visa. It would be a waste of time to start another thread even if I knew how to and little chance the Thai applicant would see it !

Being an 820 visa, the sponsor and applicant would normally be in the same country, and might be expected to be able to prove more than an offshore visa such as 309 or 300 might.

thanks for comment and i guess you are mainly talking about a situation where an
aussie was working and living abroad for a while and married a person in country
in which that person was living . might still be a little tricky to satisfy the joint finances
test as the aussie probably has assets in OZ which would not be in joint names .
Difficult perhaps to convert a bank account from his name to a joint account to include foreign partner's name and I know ING where I have savings said it could not be done. Hopefully the Immigration official uses a little common sense in this
matter as nobody can do the impossible . thanks again

sorry as I got it completely wrong as of course the 820 visa is applied for ONSHORE in OZ and easier to arrange joint accounts maybe before submitting application. For 309 visa it is less easy as you say but possible to have joint accounts where sponsor living to include his or her partner ( visa applicant ) partner could be living with applicant
most of time using visitor visas to UK as in my case . I have reasons not to use the
PMV route because of what happened in 2015 !

The 820, being an onshore visa, is where they are both in Australia, with the applicant on a visitor, student, working holiday visa etc. Having been living together in Australia often for some time. Normally getting married in Australia too.
Joint bank accounts can be common, we did that with NAB, even before getting married.
