Living with the parents, how to prove it?

Hi guys, just a quick one. If someone is in a de-facto relationship but living with their girlfriends parents then what is the best way to prove this as their is no lease, joint bills etc. Also if travelling overseas together does this count as living together?

Hi coyle,

If you haven't done so, you should read the DIAC website so that you understand all of the criteria for the de facto visa, especially what kindof evidence is needed. Are you onshore or offshore? This is important because the steps and requirements are slightly different depending on whether the applicant is in Australia or offshore.

Partner Migration Booklet

This will give you very detailed information and examples of what evidence you two need and the steps involved in the application. Make sure you use the checklist of documents so that you can tick off what you have and have a record of what you still need.

It doesn't matter if you don't have joint bills or accounts, or even a joint lease. The improtant thing to show is that the finances for these payments came from both of you. Print out your bank statements and highlight payments to eachother and any other external body related to living expenses.

As for living with your parents, again, it's no biggie. Your parents will have to right in their stat. dec that you both contribute to the household and that you were living in a comitted relationship under their roof. Any payments to your parents' accounts should also be highlighted in your statements.

Take a look at elkitten's sticky at the top of this forum to get more ideas about how to gather evidence for you de facto visa. She used bank statements to prove joint finances to great success - she got her de facto visa

Joint travel shows joint comittment, so again, if you have the ticket stubs, any record of it on a credit card/ bank card statement, pictures of the trip, these can all help prove the genuineness of your relationship.

If you need any more help, let us know
