Because a tourist visa is not designed to live with your partner. It is for tourism purposes only.

I'm using prepaid. With Foxtel and Internet its under his bundle plan with the phone network and its under his name. Never thought that I can open an account here. And also haven't given warning. It will be my fourth entry on November. So testimony from family and friends are not enough?

Just be prepared they may deny you entry this time. It may not happen but be prepared.

No testimony is not enough ... people can lie.

You can use your partners bank account to show him paying the expenses but the problem is prooving to DIBP that you have lived together for 12 months when you have no physical proof (PMV would be easier option but you don't want to get married).

I think you need to consult with a good registered migration agent.

You could have changed the phone etc into both your names - Telstra did that to include my husband's name.

Yep your partner just needs to ring up Telstra and say he wants to add you to the bill and they will do it.

Hi Mish. I have another question. What if Im just a tourist here. How can I help him with the expenses if I don't have income? How can I help him with the bills if I don't have the means since I can't work. Is it enough to provide all his documents that is his tax and payslip?

It is all about showing how you have combined things. When my husband first arrived he had no job but we opened a joint account that some of my pay went into. It shows that he has access to my pay too instead of having to rely on me to give him money.

Do you use his ATM card? That can help too. You have to show how you have combined things together.

His payslips won't help with much at all ... just shows he has a job.

They are determining thr genuineness of your relationship.

If you were married would not be as much of an issue because you don't need to show 12 months living together. De facto you have to be able to prove to DIBP that you have been living together. No mail in joint names or a lease makes it very hard to establish this. Most people in this case would register the relationship but unfortunately you can't.
