Getting there...

Hi everyone.
I've been TRYING to get things together for my husband's partner visa, and I am actually starting to feel like I've got everything together - the only left to do if the health check, (see my other thread!!) and get everything certified. We've figured out that one of Graham's uncles is a JP, so we're hoping that he can help us out once we have everything in order!!!

I must say though, this is probably the most stressful thing I've EVER had to do! Beats getting married, getting pregnant, getting my UK citizenship!!! ArghhhhH!!!!!!!!

It is time consuming Suzannah and requires a good deal of commitment but use the Checklist and have your own hit list to attend to, and many steps will have you achieving a marathon.
Sounds like you're just about there.

Hi Everyone,
I am getting there too (well I hope so), i am currently on whv which expires on the 12th april (in 15 days), i am planning to send my de facto application by the end of this week , my medical appointment in this friday coming, I have been spending a few hours reading through this forum and I am starting to have a rush of stress coming out!

We travelled around Oz for about 5 months in a van so we do not have eletricty bills or anything like that and then we are living at his dad place(without his dad) and we do not pay rent or any bills except for the phone. Wr do have a join bank account and when I think about it now I could probably highlight the fuel cost in everyplace and still the grocery bills...well tell me if you think it would do any good.
Then back in Europe we did travelled a lot together and the only prove we have is lots of photos, and lucky I have kept record of train tickets, hostel booked together...but not so good of writing letter to each other I only have emails.

Then I would love to go back to my country (France) sometimes in September and I am a bit lost with this bridging visa thing, for me it looks like i am not going to be able to go back home until I get a reply from this de facto visa.

Thanks for your help and this website is really good I really wish I found it early...
Always at the last minute...

You should have a good read of the 12 months relationship requirement info linked @ Partner Visa: Onshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 820 and 801) if you have not already for there is a special reference to travelling together there and it will be a pity and loss of an application fee if you submit an application that does not quite measure up.
Many visa applications do get rejected because of insufficient support for claims.

As for the bridging visa, what happens is that if you have the partner application in before your WHV expires, when it does expire a BVA gets issued, no application required and then if you want to take a trip back to France, you can apply for a BVB, a reasonable family reason or whatever probably sufficient.

But first pay attention to all the info you can get together to show that sharing of a travelling relationship and it may be more required than just having travel tickets.
You probably should do some quick searching of both bank records and see if you can show payments for both of you from either's accounts prior to having a joint account and certainly have a very clear time line of events of when you initially met and all your time together.
