Hi Wanderer

I have (in all honesty) no doubt you're correct I'm as I admit a 'stupid POM'..no really.LOL

I've several friends who have moved to Australia via partners...Funny they're friends of my partners and friends of mine..please accept my apologies

we're actually the last ones left behind!!

It's just, the way the question is worded, it appears 'leading' to me. And kinda says a lot about how you work together as a partnership!...If we were as I say some distance apart when we decided to live together and I'd have to sell a property, move country,etc that's fine

But if we lived near each other and both had accommodation which was suitable for two..Even I'd be wondering why it took so long between agreeing the move, and making the move?

Perhaps I read too much into it? We didn't we decided to do it and it was done within a week or two..We remember the day we first lived together as it's now become our anniversary date! even our family's know this date as they send cards!!

As to the date we agreed it best to live together..not a clue, but we know it was within two weeks of moving in as we'd just returned from holiday, and recall talking about it very shortly after returning, certainly on the first week back, and being as two weeks passed between the two events it was somewhere during that....

I've probably passed through the acceptable amount you need to know! and am boring the pants off you..boring myself here!!

Anyway that's how we've explained it, as that is how it is!

Yep Wanderer I would like your 'valued' opinion!...Am I just being over cautious and stupid?

Well you're not being stupid Seppo nor are I suspect and sloppy was probably a bit rich but at least you've now thought through the process yourself a bit, and you are kind of getting near the point with

It is indeed leading and not just a single question and the way people answer the questions asked will reveal something of a relationship including the one on when you first met.
Sure there can be geographical reasons which can have an impact on residing together but more so Immi is looking to ascertain that relationships are not relationships of convenience for someone to get a visa and hence wanting to know background .
Good fabricators can fabricate but they can also be caught out.

If you think about what you posted and it may mean doing a bit more thinking, your clue is the date of your holidays and when you returned and your closeness between dates is somewhat connected to closeness of existing separate residences and need if so to terminate one but you may have been cohabitating alternately in either residence for some time and that will be different to a couple who have only just met and then quick as a flash are residing together and 12 months later are putting a visa in and so you can have whirlwind romances, someone a good planner, or someone just setting up for their visa and all the 12+ months is intended for is to hopefully limit the latter.
That's my view of it anyway.

Thanks Wanderer...I do value your replies..and I get it..And I am over thinking here..probably something to do with the butterflies in my stomach!! God time flies when something extreme nears!!

Firstly I think I need to stop coming up with scenarios which have nothing to do with my situation, just to engage in conversation...however interesting!!

And just get on with my application and leave folk who know what they are talking about give advice!!! done!

This is a question!...Are you saying I should take another look at those questions and answer them differently in some way?

I'll outline our situation etc..this is just us, and how it came to be!!

We'd known each other about 7 months, Started a relationship in Dec..had a short holiday in Jan abroad ..lived apart ..had another holiday with friends in Feb came back lived together Feb 24th. I gave up the lease on my flat on the Feb 21st to end Feb 23rd have signed docs. Moved into partners on the 24th..The flat was owed by my partners employers, and we couldn't get a lease..they don't give you leases for job tied accommodation in case your fired and they get stuck with an unwelcome tenant, but i was put on the company residence insurance..have copy of docs.

I can't fit that one in...I'm flogging this issue to death!! just getting confused as to how to explain this?

The thing I usually stress with the partner applications is to have a clear chronological outline and then flesh it out from that and in the absence of a lease with your partners flat, if you have some employer documentation/statement, that'll be as good and then as for evidence it is all the other things like personal accounts etc. that you can use to show a common address, the sticky by el kitten possibly having some ideas for you, her application based on many of her own questions and discussion on the forum.

So with your case, you will have a good background to length of relationship and it'd seem you should be able to come up with spome reasonably accurate dates for first meeting, deciding to cohabitat and doing it etc. , and yes, whilst keeping an application as accurate as it can be, completeness and clarity will be aided by keeping it simple.

Thanks Wanderer

I'll take that onboard and leave you to others who need urgent advice!

Interestingly though, My partner and I sometime back sat and wrote out separately, our past recollections ..made interesting reading..the amount we forgot..!
