Should a write a relationship statement too??

Hello everyone.

I recently applied for PMV. I provided with my application a completed relationship pro-forma I downloaded from the Berlin office and a written and signed statement from my fiance, which is a walk-through of our relationship. I was wondering if I should write such a statement as well?

Thanks !!

Hi, I applied for the same a couple of years ago in berlin, too...and realised that I may not have needed to write a story 'too late" - they were written, so we attached anyway. And the start of our relationship was quite complicated anyway... They did not complain about it, so guess writing it anyway does not do any harm

Hi there,

If you have read the partner booklet, it clearly says you need to supply as evidence"

written statements from both you and your fiance detailing the history of your
fiance relationship (for example, when and how you met, when you became
engaged, joint activities, significant events in the relationship) and your future plans
as husband and wife

If you haven't done one, your CO will probably request one, so I would get one together now and hand it in. Otherwise, you have an imcomplete application as it is with only one statement from the applicant.

Hi Aussiegirl,

yes, it does. However, the site of the Berlin office has its "very own" checklist, which does not mention a relationship statement - however, they require a "relationship pro forma" which other embassies don't have...! The odd thing was, their lists of requirements does not even match 100% when reading their site in the different language settings (or at least not 2 and a half years ago when I checked them last...but I read them in English, German and Hungarian...). They used to process things very fast in those times, and they used to have for Germans a same-day-processing service (not anymore, as I saw on a German forum ) Their pro-forma thing is like a stat dec, asking the usual "interview questions" about the relationship, and guess they wanted to make the processing by that faster. It covers the most important things, but I did not feel it to be suitable to explain "more unusual" cases.

When I was applying for my PMV early 2008, I checked out several forums and also the individual websites of some embassies. It seemed they indeed can have some "specialties", slight differences what else they may require. And when I made myself upset enough about all the horror stories I could find, I just did my best to sell them eeeverything I could see they may need. Just do make it sure

I read the booklet so many times that I can actually quote the best part of it. But like Marisch says the Berlin embassy has its own checklist. While we were still gathering all the papers I emailed them asking about the statutory declarations and which of the 2 checklists we need to follow cause after some point it became pretty frustrating. Their email said and I quote :
"Please provide Statutory Declarations only upon request of the case officer. For the list of additional documents, please ONLY refer to our local website."

I kept all the email I exchanged with the embassy prior to lodging the application so if there is any misunderstanding I can refer to them again.

Thanks Luthien and Marisch,

It certainly seems that DIAC posts are given some room to vary their own particular requirements somewhat. I would have thought that this particular one would be enforced across the board, but seems not.

Thanks for giving your valuable input to this forum
