Partner Visa- evidence enquiry


My boyfriend is an Australian citizen and I am a penultimate year student from Malaysia. We have been together for almost 2 and a half years and I have been staying with him and his family for more than 12 months. He has just finished his degree and is currently working part time in search for a full time job. My boyfriend and his family have been supporting me financially. (Eg- taking care of my food and accommodation and other expenses)

We are now collecting evidence for our partner visa to prove that we have been staying together for more than 12 months and that our relationship is genuine and long lasting.

The problem is we do not have any joint bank account or any electric/water bills since we are living with his parents ( We do not have to pay rent or contribute to any household expenses). Will this lower our chance of getting a partner visa?

The evidence that we currently have includes statutory declarations from both of his parents, my uncle whom I used to live with before moving in together with my bf and his family, 2 more statutory declarations from our mutual friends(all together 5 statutory declarations), phone bill statements to prove that we have been in contact almost everyday the last time I went back to Malaysia for 2months for holidays, joint travels and photos that we took together. Are these evidence sufficient ?

I would get your parents to write in their stat. decs that they didn't require you to pay rent or other expenses while you lived in their house as a couple. I wouldn't worry about not having joint utilities, as there are many couples that don't. Other evidence of finances could be statements or receipts showing you bought eachother gifts, e-mails or letters you sent to eachother, or joint membership and participation in any clubs/ activities.
