Electronic Doucments : De Facto Visa

My question is in regards to the de facto visa and the kind of evidence that you can submit. In this day and age much of our communication is captured via e-mail, text message, facebook etc

Given that is is fairly easy to 'manipulate' these kinds of documents, are they low on the scale in terms of 'solid evidence'?

I have a stream of e-mails, text messages, facebook message, electronic bills that would be perfect to included in our application, however I am concerend they won't be highly regarded. Is this the case?

I was also consdiering including the memeory chips to our mobile phones as evidence - has anyone heard of any other applicants doing this before?

Emails and other such information may be of use as background information in support of an application but they are really showing that you were not residing together so they are really of limited value and I'd not bother with the phone memories.

Just to add, DIAC won't review anything that can't easily be scanned onto their computer - so they wouldn't even bother to look at the memory chips. Same goes for wedding DVDs etc.

thats why stat dec's are also so important.

But i agree with above, you need things like photos, and that, but it doesnt hurt to put in emails etc as well

No Katt, stuff like photos and emails are not so important as hard proof of documents that people have actually had a residence in common, stuff like bills and other correspondence to an actual street address.
Statutory declarations are supplementary to showing proof of residing together for a defacto visa.
