Question From PMV to partner visa

Hello,
I've found the forums really helpful but i need some specific help please. My fiancee moved from Malawi, Africa to Aus on a PMV visa, we are getting married in Oct 2010 and are applying for a spouse visa.

Since he moved here we are living together in my parents house while we save for our own home. We have a joint debit and a joint savings account but as we live with my parents we have no joint bills etc. We do pay my mum rent which comes out of our joint account. However, I am worried that we do not have enough joint financial commitments.

Does anyone have any suggestions of what we can do to further support our application? Any clubs you can think of which we can jointly register for???

Thanks

Hey lou lou,

Don't worry about not having bills in joint names. You can find other ways to prove joint finances. Look at your and your partner's bank statements and find any transfers to or from joint accounts. Also, keep any proof that you travelled together, saw moives, paid for nights out etc. You can also get your mum to write in her stat. dec. why you are living with her and what you two contribute to the household (like helping her with board, food etc).

If you need good advice about how to dig up proof, look for elkitten in this forum. She has a sticky too with loads or great advice. She got her visa successfully, so what she did worked

Hi,

I did some looking around but couldn't find anything concrete. But, for people who are applying for the 2nd stage of a partner visa (i.e. getting a permanent visa after 2 years in Australia), it seems they don't have to do medicals again unless their health has changed and they have developed a serious condition since arriving in Oz. So, possibly your partner may not need to do them again?

I would call the immigration hotline or go in and talk to someone and find out for sure. The hotline number for calllers in Aust. is 131880.

Thanks for your help again! I will give them a call. Last time i went into the Perth office and the lady was no help at all.....i had to wait 45mins then when i asked her my questions she said she didn't know and just gave me a checklist and sent me on my way. Every dealing i have with them is useless!!! They def don't make it easy!
