Partner visa 309- financial support?

My partner and I are currently living in the US. I have to return to aus in feb but we'll be applying for the 309 in a month. Looking through the checklist we seem to have a lot of evidence and things will hopefully be okay, however...

I was a full time student when we entered our defacto relationship in australia. I had a part time job and was also receiving centrelink payments for youth allowance. When I graduated I increased my work hours but was still part time. Once I moved to America I got a full time job and we share a lease on an apartment. I have a degree in teaching but am unable to use it in the US.
Just wondering whether anyone knows whether this will affect the component of "being able to financially support the applicant". He was supporting himself when in aus with me, and we lived rent free with my family. My family will allow us to do this again when we return until we have full time work. I'll be looking for a teaching job so would be able to support him financially, but I don't have any proof that I would have been able to do this in the past.

I also don't have my payslips/PAYG statements here in the US with me. Do you think highlighting my income on bank statements for the past 2 years is enough or should I contact the Australian tax office and get copies of my PAYG for the past two years?

Thank you! Sorry for the wall of text,

I wouldn't worry too much. They don't actually generally ask for evidence of income these days. They can always ask for it if you don't provide it, but they don't often (from what I've seen). If you're concerned you can go ahead and provide it, but what the only thing they care about is that you can support yourselves. Usually payslips or tax assessments from either/both of you showing you make enough for both of you to live on are fine. If you can't get payslips OR tax assessments, I wouldn't worry about it though - I'd probably just see if they request it, and if they do, you can take whatever steps you need to then.

Thumbs up

Hey ani89,

College Girl is correct! The financial/job stability definitely adds brownie points to your partner visa applications, it is not a deciding factor lack of which will hinder your partner visa application from getting approved.

You can definitely provide the documents/bank statements/income tax assessments/payslips you have.
Don't worry about it too much
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,

How does the passport sized photos work when doing the online application? Do I need to get precise passport sized digital photos done?

Get your parents to write a statement saying they will help u with accomodation and financial support until u and ur partner are able to find work. that is what we did for ours. and then in our statement we kinda said what kinda field of work both my husband and i are in. We never sent in pay slips or bank statements. excpet as evidence of address. And with the passport size photo. its very easy to get. the size should come up when u get them taken at most pharmacys. It would say australian passport size. and then yes just scan it in

Thank you!

That's our plan Brekza- my parents have said they will include in the 888 that we can live with them rent free till we find full time work. And good idea with including work field, I'll probably attach my degree as evidence
