Will relationship registration help 820 visa

Dear everyone,
This forum is amazing and I have got heaps of valuable imformation from you guys! Here is an enquiry regarding on the relationship registration, hope you can share your experience.

I'm going to lodge my partner visa asap sponsored by my bf- an australian citizen. We meet nearlly all the requirements so far except we dont have joint bank account and joint bills. My boyfriend has been dealing with all the bills by himself in the past 12 months and didnt ask for any of my contributions since Im currently have no income as a full-time studuent here.

I heard from others that in this case, if we register our relationship, it will help the visa application. Is this the case? thanks for sharing in advance.

Catherine

Joint bank accounts and both names on bills is just one way of showing residence at a common address and without that you can still use other correspondence in your name to the address, be it regarding your studies or any clubs, libraries or whatever you may be signed up to.
The relationship registration will also require evidence of a common address and for your visa application a registration allows waiving of the full 12 months rekationship requirement, as if you were married but you still need to show evidence of a relationship, including residing together.
Married couples also need to do that, and nominally six months together is something of a yardstick though less than that will not alone be reason to reject a visa application.

So by all means look at applying for a relationship registration as it'll not adversely affect your visa application and it will in some ways be a dry run and get you looking at your evidence.

Thanks very much for your response. I guess here is how to prove 'residing together' i quoted from relationship registration in NSW.
"If your 3froms of primary ID(including passport, birth certificate, driving license, passport,Tertiary Education Institution ID Card, ect. )do not show your current NSW residential address, provide a current bank statement or utility bill (water, electricity, gas, telephone, etc), rates notices or lease agreement in addition to 3 forms of primary ID. "
Seems its much simplier and easier than the supporting ducuments we should provide for 820visa.
I'm still wondering if this relationship registration really worth that 189 bucks, or is it just something that not neccessary for us at the moment. Any one had the experience of getting the 820 visa approved or approved faster with the help of relationship registration?
Thanks/Catherine

If you meet the relationship registration it could have a benefit if Samantha's experience is repeated.
Last page of Timeline Sticky Thread - Samantha 09
Quote:
Date of application : 26 August
Visa category: 2 Stage - temp then permanent
Applied from: Pretoria, South Africa - I'm Australian but de facto from Botswana
Medical report: submitted mid Sept
Police Clearance: submitted all with application
CO assigned: assume that was the person that emailed us on the 30 August although every email we received was from a different person.
Visa status: approved as of 30 oct 2010

Think registering as defacto in nsw really helped us get it so quickly. Didn't even have an interview.
