That seems such a silly rule if that's the case. The relationship is ongoing so how can evidence not count after the magic application date? Evidence is evidence. Not fair that they could ignore stuff that shows the genuine nature of the relationship......

It is possible for paper applications it is just the time of lodgement requirements you need to meet ie. intention to marry for the pmv, 12 months for de facto etc.

We submitted a paper application and was able to email additional evidence which we did. I believe in our case it made a huge difference! We are applied from a high risk country and just flooded them with evidence, as in when I came back from visiting we would email more evidence.

In regards to your question, it all depends on how much you have submitted and in particular the variety of the evidence. Coming from a low risk country you would not need to supply as much as a high risk country.

When we submitted our application, paper was the only option. We submitted over 7 pounds of forms and evidence. We went over the top but didn't submit anything other than the medical and a passport name change after that. What we did do is bother them at every opportunity, by calling and email.

I think if we had the option to put in more evidence then we would have, I don't think I would have been able to help myself. That said I don't think it will make a difference in a case that was already well prepared and had a sound foundation for the relationship. Other than to remind them that you do exist and maybe frighten them with the speed of your file's growth and that you might not stop .

I have an issue with collecting evidence as well. So much so that my boyfriend calls me the evidence monster. I realised I had gone to far when we received an invitation for my sisters wedding and I was upset and stressed that it hadn't been date stamped by the post office. Crazy town.

My partner is from a high risk country where everything is quite disorganised. We have stuff with our names spelt incorrectly (especially my foreign name), it took me three times to get the bank to change our address, and we can't put bills in our names as they have to stay in the name of the landlord. Anyway, I am trying to relax and see the funny side instead of the stressful side.

Thank you everyone! I feel so much better having read your responses!

I love hearing everyone's diverse experiences and it certainly helps me put things into perspective when it comes to the strength of our application.

Thanks again! Good luck to everyone still awaiting their visa grant and congratulations to everyone who has received theirs already xxxx

I'm the Australian wife, in love with the American dream!

820 partner visa, applied onshore January 3, 2014. Approved September 8, 2014.

Sending love and light and my best wishes to all the lovebirds just trying to make their dreams come true xxxx
