Smile Defacto Visa evidence 801/820

Hi everyone

My partner and I are applying for de-facto visa subclass 801. My partner is 18 and I'm 21 and we are both of Indian origin. We are struggling to gather evidence for the financial aspect and nature of the household.

We have been in a defacto relationship since Nov 2011 and stayed at various shared accomodations prior to getting a house on rent for ourselves in Sep 2013. Therefore, we did not have any electricity, water or gas bills under our name and no formal rent receipts. Apart from statutory declarations from previous owners and a few correspondence mails (phone bills, bank statements, letters from uni, etc) to both of us at all the addresses we have stayed at, we don't have much evidence.

The only evidences I have at the moment are plenty bank statements showing detailed joint expenditure, phone records, emails, photos, messages, travel itineraries, statutory declarations (x6), joint electricity, gas and water bills starting sep 2013, joint lease agreement starting sep 2013 and furniture bought under our names delivered to the same address. We have also declared our relationship to Centrelink since we moved out.

Also my partner is a full time uni student who gets Centrelink and is on scholarship and is not working. Would it affect her eligibility to sponsor me? Our parents usually support us with finances and we have been going well till yet.

Can someone please guide us as to what other types of evidence I can add to my application.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

That could be a problem, if you are in NSW you could try registering your relationship, other states need proof of 12 months cohabitation

You really need to prove to immigration that you have been living together effectively as a married couple for over 12 months or they will deny your application.

Hi Ktty Kat

Thanks for the help. I will add the relationship registration certificate to my application. And yes I meant visa subclass 820.

We have been living together for over 2 years now and I'm quite confident that I can establish our commitment to each other in the past and for the future.

Just wanted some assistance with the evidence. Not sure what other documents I should include that would add weight to my application.

Statements from people who you shared accommodation with or from.
Statements of financial support from family.

She was only 16 when you started living together. I wonder whether that would be a problem.

At a minimum, you'd want to make sure that there's no indication in your application that you had a sexual relationship prior to her turning 16.
