visa 885 with de facto

Hi all

I am applying for a 885 visa and would like to add my gf as a secondary applicant. We were together since mid 2008 and we have been living together for 2 years. After reading el kitten's thread, here are the evidence that I have gathered.

1. Bank accounts showing transfers for sharing of household expenses (rent, internet, groceries)
2. Joint bank account from September 2010 - Is it ok if it is less than a year?
3. No joint assets or liabilities as we are just students.

Nature of household
1. Joint rental of residence
- in 2009, we shared a house with another housemate (all three names were on the lease agreement)
- in 2010, the two of us moved out to stay together
- in 2011, we moved to a share house without any rental agreement. Is this alright? We can provide letters to us which show our new address.

2. No joint names on bills etc
3. Correspondence to same address
4. Sharing of household duties

1. Joint Travel
2. 2 Stat decs
3. Around 20 pictures

1. We have met each other's parents and family
2. Phone records
3. Future plans

I would really appreciate your opinions on this and whether it is enough especially for the financial and commitment part. Thank you

And does anyone know whether I can lodge my application first and upload all these evidence at a later date. If so, is there a time limit for doing so?

You seem to have the basics of a relationship and as long as you present your information in a clear and complete way, using a timeline as the basis of the detail of time together you should stand a good chance.
I'd just see about getting something of an agreement on rental details drawn up about where you are now to complement what you already have and hopefully you have documentation on where you were in 2010.

Thanks for your reply Wanderer. That's a relief! Yes I do have documentation for 2010, and I'll talk to the agent about getting one for this year.

As I'm lodging my application online, would I have to provide all these at the time of application, or can I upload them at a later date?

Thanks again for your help

The process for online applications is that you actually make the application and pay your fee via credit card entry and then you will be allocated a TRN number and you use that to upload any documents and you may want to check with Immi on their pre lodgement enquiry service but I think it is nominally 28 days that you have to upload documents.
