Unhappy Needs Help!

I have read things in this forum and i get inspired in some way believe some day i will have sweet story to tell.
I am a Filipina and have Australian bf,we have been in relationship for 3 years and this time when he visits will be his second time visiting Philippines.
He has petitioned me 3 times #1 visit visa (denied for lack of proof of our relationship) #2 Fiancée visa 2times both denied for "lack of proof of our relationship".
I would like guys in this group to advice me on the next step because in the next few days he will be back to Philippines and we plan to get married on his second day here.
the question is: is it possible for us to file our 3rd application by ourselves? as our previous Consultant didn’t do much to help us rather he complicated things for us and he never stopped asking for his fees.
second: will our getting married be of any help get our case stronger?
I would appreciate if some1 will give me idea of what additional documents that will give back bones to our application.
So distressed!

HI there,

I'm sorry to hear that you have had such a difficult time showing your relationship is genuine. Maybe you should tell us first what kind of evidence you gave in the past so that we can give you other examples that you didn't think of before.

As for whether marriage will make your case stronger, it may help to show you serious about staying together. But, from a DIAC point of view, it's not enough to prove you are a real couple, since there are still a lot of cases of people faking marriages to get a visa to Australia. And unfortunately for you, from the things I have read from Filipinas, it is VERY hard for them to get a partner visa.

But, don't give up. We are here to help, so please let us know more about yor previoius applications

Thanks Aussie,
In the past we have submitted all my personal documents. Communications between us. Pictures taken whilst he was here,
Letters from his parents and friends where not included but that we can get this time.
I do not really know if we can do it on our own without a consultant.
Thanks all for your courage.

It does seem you are not too happy with the agent you have had and the first thing I'd suggest you do is put some time aside to have a close look at the eligibility and applying for this visa sections of the visas and read Booklet #2 as well for there is a lot of information available to help people doing applications themselves.
Family - Visas & Immigration
In the applying section there is a well laid out Checklist and that should help you too.
If you and your Bf can provide good solid evidence of he length of your relationship and it is presented clearly, I would expect that you should have a good chance and with getting married, you should be able to get a partner visa.

Hi Emilou!

Sorry to hear about your past refusals. Besides all these proofs mentioned above, it is also very important to include detailed evidence of how you stayed in contact while your fiance was in Australia. If you chatted on Skype or Yahoo, then print out all of that. Also any emails you have written to each other. Phone bills, cards addressed to each other. You say that you have already included these things previously. Just send all of that again with your new application. It's better to send too much stuff than too little.

Do you need to use an agent? Plenty of people successfully do their own application. Just check and double check everything. Read all of the booklets and instructions thoroughly. Get someone who speaks perfect English to re-check all your statements and forms before making the final copy.

Wish you good luck!
