Hello Members of forum.
Instead of starting a new thread I hope it would be okay for us to just keep this thread update with new questions throughout the time…
Anyway there are few questions I would like to ask.

Question 1.
With every day purchases such as
-Groceries
-Weekly Fuel
-Breakfast / lunch / Dinner / social activities such as coffee shops etc.
Should we compile any receipts along with statement as proof for each purchases through with our debit card? Or would the statement from our debit card we provided showing what the purchases are and we outlining them and placed them all in categories such as (Food / Groceries / Fuel / Activites etc) on a separate A4 sheet indicating what there are with small description is enough???

Note: …correct me if im wrong…. honestly to scan all the receipts each week what we buy and collected, printed them out when statement show exactly the information already…just seems pointless like I don’t want to provide repeated information just want it simple and clear that’s all.
However if CO do want them we have them with us, it just some are starting to faded since its been a very long time, and I cant imagine photocopy and printing them all out in categories would be stack of Woollies / Coles receipts / stacks of Caltex / Shell / BP fuel receipt and so on… haha

Question 2.
My partners student visa supposedly expire 15th march 2015, however due to postpone of her degree, her education allow her to extend her visa till end of the course which would be somewhere end of 2015/early 2016 when she handed in her new COE however since we applying for partner visa this won’t be happening yet so technically her student visa would still be consider expiring at the end of 15th march 2015. So just want to make sure 3 months before 15th of March 2015 won’t be consider late to submit our partner visa application?

Thanks in advance

Q1: They don't want to see ALL the receipts. You can pick a few important receipts, such as an expensive gift you bought, air tickets that you paid etc. Otherwise, bank statements should be sufficient.

Q2: 3 months prior to current visa expiry is not late.

Q 1 - we printed out all of our bank statements and used different colour highlighters to highlight different transactions. i.e. green was all of our shared household expenses, things like groceries at Coles, petrol; blue was shared social expenses like dinners/lunches out, movies that we both paid for at different times; yellow were gifts for one another; pink were large joint expenses i.e. our couch, plane tickets, etc. We explained in our 'explanation of evidence' document what each colour represented. We didn't include any receipts in our application.

Q2 - 3 months before the expiration of the visa should be fine. My partner's student visa expired on 15 March 2014, and we applied 2 March 2014 with no issues I would make sure to leave at least 2 weeks though, to sort out any issues that may arise with the lodging of the application, receipt of the bridging visa etc.

You guys are scaring me with all your multi-colored highlighting and receipts. I'm beginning to wonder if my evidence isn't detailed enough. :/

Don't forget that there are different ways to satisfy the four categories! We went into the level of detail we did with our bank statements because we didn't have a joint bank account. If you have other ways of showing that you share finances and expenses, then that is totally fine.

We have two joint bank accounts (general and super saver) through which we manage the household bills. We also have both our names on the lease for the apartment, and the usual legal back-up (marriage certificate, wedding receipts, ring receipts, etc.), but in the text part I just said that all costs are mutually shared through the account and that my husband was minding the Australian affairs while I was sorting out the wedding party stuff back in the states (his name is on utilities, mine is on all the party receipts, etc.). I'm hoping that's not too vague for them...?

Ah thank you members!

real appreciated with the tips~ yeh kinda does sound scary ay when multi colouring all these documents, however i do find this quite fun for myself since i enjoy putting everything all neat and organized and making them look as simple yet not too fancy since im aware the CO are not looking for best presentation or whoever submit the fanciest report honestly compiling evidence is very simple when when you live together and have mutual commitment and future plans etc which also includes every daily expense to weekly to monthly just piles up before you know it.

liked our agent said to us, if your real there is nothing to worry, its just unfortunate there are others out their exploited this, making genuine people like us a drama and have to compile a whole bunch of evidence just to prove what we have and our life together is real and continuing... its like i cant imagine started and build a life and family together, and one day get told " No your wife must leave you and must leave the country you guys are not real etc" everything we have build together with our hands are lost because of bad people who seriously have nothing else better to do to file in fake things making it harder for genuine couples seriously..sigh~
