Need quick advice

Hi all,

We are in a bit of a situation and I haven't been able to read through all these pages.

The short version is I am Australian and 10 months ago I took a year off to go sailing around the South Pacific. I met my current girlfriend as I was leaving and she decided to come with me. We have been living on the boat in Australia cruising up and down the west coast for the whole time except about 3. Months in Perth where we refitted the boat.

However we have just found out she is pregnant and due in Feb. We were planning on sailing Indonesia in a rally so we have evidence of continuing our relationship etc, but the hard part is proving our past relationship. Is the 820 visa the way to go? She is from Finland and is on her second year working visa which expires in September.

I can show that I have plenty of money to take care of ourselves and have lots of photos of a trip to Finland we did in feb to meet her family and that she worked on redoing the boat 12 hrs a day for about 2 months straight but will this be enough? Or do we leave the country and have the baby somewhere like NZ and build a better case over the next few years? I can get work there pretty easy too but I really want us to set ourselves up and have the baby here.

Opinions appreciated

What it boils down to is that you need:

1) Evidence your relationship is genuine, that you're socially accepted as a couple, etc. (sounds like you may have at least some of that).
2) Evidence you share finances (shared bank account(s), both of you paying various bills, sharing credit card accounts, etc.)
3) Evidence you have lived together for the past 12 months (correspondence addressed to both of you at the same address, a shared lease, etc.)

Now, if you have SOME evidence of #3, but not 12 months' worth, you can waive the need for it to be 12 months worth by doing one of three things: 1) getting married, 2) registering your relationship in a state that allows it, 3) waiting until after the baby is born to apply.

So - if you have all the evidence you need but just enough time living together, you can just wait until the baby is born and apply then. If you think your evidence is really weak in general (and honestly, I can see how it would be if you were traveling together and not living in one spot) then you can wait even longer and collect stronger evidence before applying.

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.
Thanks CG and Mish.

Thanks College girl. Problem is the baby is due after her visa expires so we need to find another country to have the baby in. Finland isn't really an option as I am 36 so it would be harder for me to get a visa there. Decisions decisions !!!

New member just about to get married.
My wife is in Oz on a multiple entry TV, and her visa has no conditions.
We will apply for a 820 visa after the marriage and then she will return to the Philippines for 3 weeks.
A couple of questions:
1. Her 2 children are not in Australia and we want to include in the application, will immi send a Hap id for the children to have there medicals in the Philippines, my future wife will have her medical done in Australia.
2.The father of the children will allow the children to come to Australia, what form should be used for the father to sign? He lives in the Philippines.

Hi Farmer
The situation may not be as simple as you think.The fact that the children are outside Australia probably means they can't be included in an 820 application as that is an onshore visa.
Is there a compelling reason to get married in Australia now? A PMV visa would easily allow for the children to be included and does not require the same extensive proof of a genuine relationship as a 802 application, unfortunately just being married doesn't really add much weight to your evidence.
Just a thought but I would asking one of the very reputable agents on this forum for advice before you commit yourself to a course of action that may result in a long delay before your partners children can come here.
Good luck

Thanks aussiesteve,
Good advise, i'll post the question on ask mark.
Evidence should not be a problem as we have been together on and off for 3 years, both in Australia and the Philippines.

I've got a question regarding the partners' stat decs. When writing them, what is the best method? I have checked the Attorney General's forms, but they are too short in length for the long, quality declarations that me and my partner need to make. What did you guys use for your applications? Maybe just a blank sheet? If yes, do I just take it to a JP and sign it in front of them, or is there any other requirements and then scan and upload it? Is there maybe an online form that is of good size (page wise) that we can use?
