And FYI - third party police clearances aren't acceptable I'm pretty sure. Get them straight from the AFP. It takes a little longer, sure, but you know it's correct.
My mistake, i thought police checks were all the same no matter if it was third party or not. Ive used this place multiple times for various government related applications with no problems. Can anyone verify that it actually has to be from the AFP?

I can now confirm that third party checks CAN NOT be used, i just rang the place i normally use. They can be used for pretty much everything else EXCEPT visa or migration purposes where a AFP check is specifically asked for.

I'm sure I've read something like what I've said before, but I can't find anything on the DIBP website. You definitely need to have an AFP check though, and not a general state police background/check.

Edit: excellent. I'm glad you confirmed.

Anyone? any ideas?

After checking the requirements for sponsor i have 3 questions and hopefully someone can answer them . First of all, my partners passport is expired, will certfied birth certificate do as evidence that she's Australian citizen (or they need passport on top of that?) Also, what evidence people have provided regards that the sponsor usually resides in Autralia? 3rd question is bit tricky as my partner is stay home mum for last 3 years, so she won't be able to show her employment for last 2 years, i assume statement from her about the case will be needed? She gets some centerlink family tax benefit payments, so might include them as a evidence?! Thank you in advance

(1) birth certificate should be fine
(2) given that she is a citizen, you don't need evidence that she is normally resident in Australia. If I'm wrong, something like bank statements/utility bills with an address.
(3) Definitely include a statement, with the evidence that you can provide about Centrelink benefits. People have successfully sponsored on Centrelink before, but just make it clear to the department where she gets her income from.

Hello again,

I have a question about the presentation of evidence for the online application process. Lets use the financial section for example, my wife and i have a few joint bank accounts mainly for saving purposes which we've had for about a year. I have all the statements for these accounts, when i upload them do i need to give any kind of explanation about transfers etc or is the statements showing regular transaction history etc sufficient enough? basically just wanting to know if i can just upload them as is or are explanations required?

I am however the sole provider at the moment so i pay for things like doctor visits, i plan on highlighting these particular transactions and matching them with the invoices. (mainly to show i am the sole provider)

My husband is sole provider too (for the moment... fingers crossed I find a job soon). We did choose to include explanations. For each account we had an intro page that explained what we use the account for, how we share it, and then gave an explanation of what the various color highlight,s on the statement mean (for example, orange was for hubby's deposits into the account, yellow was my expenditures, green was his, etc.). We put that intro page on top of the stack of that account's statements and scanned them all together into one document, then compressed that file so it'd fit the 5 MB size requirement.

But it's all in what works for you - do whatever makes the most sense to you.

I am sole provider at the moment and we just scanned the joint statement and labelled it joint statement and that was it. However it briefly mentioned in our statement how I am the sole provider and that was it.

OK guys and gals, my head is spinning again.

On my half of the application, it is stating that a 40sp is needed/recommended and isn't attached.

But isn't that the initial sponsorship form, which is pretty much word perfect to my wife's application?

That is the first and only form I filled in after I finished submitting hers and then clicking "new application".

Excuse my ummm....confusion*.
