Relationship registration and stat decs

Hi there!

I am planning to get the relationship registered in Melbourne next month. My partner and I can provide all the papers they want as I got my drivers licence to go with my overseas passport.
As in the form they only ask for ticks and dates and no written statements I was wondering if it is really easy to get the certification when providing everything. Or is there a catch somewhere?

And as for the de facto visa I keep reading to make a stat dec for an evidence. Which form do you use for that? The same as for a witness? Because here I read the first time about it.

I hope I'm not pushing my luck if I want to apply for my partnervisa in October as it was end of October last year that we met and spend every day together and lived together at her parents place since December...
Also we will need to provide an AoS as my partner can't support me financially but I think we can provide a good person for that.

I like this forum! Hope to get and find lots of help here!

Cheers,Cori

Relationship registration has been introduced by the various states/territory to provide something similar to a marriage certificate for couples.
As such, it is not designed to have traps or pitfalls for couples with a genuine relationship and who have the evidence to show that.
There is an out clause re
[QUOTE]Registration
The Registrar will not register a relationship until the later of:
(a) 28 days from the date of lodgement of the application; or
(b) when the Registrar is satisfied the application is valid and complete.[/QUOTE]
and whereas [b] is more likely a documentation examination exercise, I'd not doubt that if relationships of convenience become a popular trend involving a non PR/Citizen and especially following shorter periods, then something more to verify validity may start to occur.

Statutory declarations can be made on the Immi form 888 or by using a standard statutory declaration form, there being online sites you can print off from or pick one up at a PO for a small charge.

As for pushing your luck, no visa application is ever guaranteed of success but if you follow all the Immi info re eligibility requirements and using Checklist for applying, you ought to be in with a good show.
In particular because you are living with parents, it will probably be a good thing to show as much of what you're doing aside from that and even with your partner's limited finances to show as much as possible of expenses that would considered normal for a couple from either's finances.
