Assurance of support confusion

My boyfriend and I are applying for a defacto visa and he is my sponsor. I have been trying to read up on this assurance of support business and am finding it a bit confusing. He has a full time job which pays a good salary but doesn't have loads of savings and I have just finished a degree and don't have a job right now. Would he be ok as my AoS? Nowhere really says how much you need to have in order to support someone.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi. We just had to do this also. You need to earn the minimum Centrelink annual amount for the Newstart Allowance - $13,000 - per person. So providing your partner earns more than $26,000 gross/before tax it will be fine

The AoS is only something optional that Immi may apply, usually in situations where they feel a sponsors/applicants position may warrant it.
If your partner/sponsor has a goo employment history and it is considered from his and your qualifications that gaining employment in Australia is not going to be too difficult then AoS may not be asked for.
It still helps though to have sizable funds available for emigration as costs can quickly mount and there's only so many park benches to go around.
