Just applied for partner visa!!! Help!

Good afternoon everyone,

the time has come and me and my boyfriend finally got everything and applied for a partner visa, last Monday on the 13th of December. We're currently residing in south-west Perth, Western Australia. I'm aussie, he's french.

Sorry if this is a bit everywhere, I AM SO NERVOUS and i just hope that we get accepted. We've got a year and a half worth of rent reciepts, we have everything on the list so far...my only concern is we don't have an electricity bill with both our names on it - but if they ring up Synergy, i'm the second person in the house - will that be enough do you think?
We've got my family letters, i've got 2 letters from my past employes about my work and both tax forms...he's had both his medicals, we seem to have had everything...even if they want more we're prepared...

The thing is, his current visa ends January 15th(working holiday visa)...so do we have to apply for a bridging visa, or will they allow him to stay until we get some sort of confirmation for the partner visa? Anyone have any information on this it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm stressing out because I just read it could be up to 3 months before they even check our visa or we get some sort of response...?

ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATE

THANKS ALL

Well don't stress out as if you have followed the Checklist to develop a good clear application and it sounds like you have plenty of time together, it'll just be more patience you need.
Processing times for all visas can take many months to be processed though the better an application you have, the more chance there is of a quicker processing time but you could wait several months before hearing anything, especially with the Xmas break.
The electricity bill is just one bit of evidence and you'll likely have much more to support the application.
It is normal for a bridging visa to be granted automatically and if you've not received any advice on that by a week before the WHV expires you could ring them to check.

Thankyou so much for your response! :-) Your definitely right, we spoke to the department a week ago and they've got our application...we just have to wait now. I am just very nervous...

Don't mind me asking, do you think our age can be a barrier? As i'm only 20 and he's 23...

We do have so much proof (our families all went on a holiday to Mauritius in November), so theres photograph proof and our bank statements show we split finance - I'm just worried it might not be enough...?

We also privately rent a house, our landlord has written a statement for us and she gives us reciepts every week, do you have any idea that they would prefer non-private rents? (A plus is she lives just down the road so if they ever checked it's all real hehe...)

Sorry for the forward questions, I really have no idea about all this...

Thanks for your time! It's greatly appreciated!

I'd reckon your ages will not be an issue and the rental situation sounds fine.
The only thing that could come up would be depending on what your employment/earnings situation is and whether they will request an Assurance of Support and by sounds of things your family should be able to help out there if it comes up.
Just relax and have a read of the sticky re interview questions to get a feel of how straightforward that'll be and all ought to be fine.
