I suggest you do a search on Rebtel and start using this if you can so that you get (1) Cheap calls to her and (2)Phone call statements that you can use.

That would help if you had held it for some time, not 2 weeks prior to the application being lodged.

Any joint assets in the Philipines?

Photos are going to be very valuable to you, along with very good relationship statements and stat decs (or the equivalent from the Philipines if there is such a thing).

Has she ever been here? If not maybe try for a tourist visa for her first to build up some of the stuff you are going to need to support the application.

Don't do the medicals until asked to do so. It is DIAC policy, don't annoy them. They could even tell you to re do them. Besides it will not hold up the appliaction, 10 months remember.

thanks turboadam,.. I think I will get a phone plan ther in phillipines to get a call records from there to here in australia.

is it okay if the the joint account is 1 month old before lodging the for the application?? or how old should it be for the proofs??

She never been here and she cant go here due to insufficient money because she is unemployed and she is still depending on her parents...

No certainly no problem in having done them, just be prepared to do them again if they expire before you get an answer. I have spoken with case officers on the phone and had it explained to me by both immi in Australia and the Aust embassy in Turkey (where we are applying offshore from) and were told to avoid at all costs not sending in key documents needed to prove you have a legal relationship. If you do as the other poster suggested and send them later then you are risking it because you won't have a case officer or a case number to record on the document to so it will end up possibly lost in the system somewhere.

We had this happen they lost our documents, but I at least had a case officer and a case number and luckily they found ours. For the sake of waiting 2-3 weeks to get your legal marriage certificate is not going to make any difference to your application, if anything it will expedite it because then it is in the ready to be processed pile and not in the incomplete/missing pile. I am guessing that you aren't even ready to lodge yet, you have so many documents, statutory declarations and proof to gather and it takes weeks even for a highly organised person with heaps of proof at their fingertips.

The embassy is under no obligation to remind you to put documents in and they can - and will - make decisions based on the information they have given to them. It is great you are reading the booklet and the forms they will be a big help for you.

There's no problem for the sponsor to travel while the visa is being processed. You just have to be sure you give DIAC a reliable address for mail correspondence, and also let them know your e-mail address in case they need to contact you.

If the applicant wants to travel, it's OK too. But they can't be in Australia to get the visa grant. They will also have to provide contact details to DIAC.
