Post De facto visa

Hi guys. First time to write here. Seeking advices with regard to de facto visa. Me and my partner started our relationship when I was in broome for holidays. Went back to Philippines and we still continue our relationship. November of last year we decided to live together. He processed my tourist visa and granted a multiple entry visa. And now we're planning to process a de facto visa. I understand that it should be a 12 month, is it cumulative? Because every 3mos I have to exit Australia. And about the financial requirement, how can we provide a proof of that one of I don't have an income. I need advise of what to do and thanks.

Hi
It isn't cumulative but consecutive, and it usually must be for the full 12 months unless you can register your relationship.(That is dependent on the state you are living in)
As far as the financials ,you will need proof such as joint banks accounts, both name on a lease, your name as a beneficiary on his superannuation and his will.
Have you thought of a Prospective Marriage Visa, the evidence required is much less.

Oh. The reason why we're looking after de facto it's because we both don't wanna get married now.

In that case you will need to explore the registration process and gather a substantial amount of evidence.

How long have you been exiting every 3 months for? Just that immigration are getting strict on it and people have been given warnings aftee the 2nd or 3rd time of doing it.

As long as the separation is only temporary that is fine and you have to show you maintained contact while apart.

In regards to financial. Why don't you have a joint bank account? They are easy enough to open .... my husband and I opened one as soon as he arrived even before he had a job where only a portion of my wage went in.

You should have some joint items to show you live at the same address .... letters, bills?

it is ok that you don't contribute financially because of no job but you need to show how you have combined your lives together and that includes finances.

Here in WA we can't register our relationship. Also have issues with the financial documents. No joint account. House, water and electric bill are paid by his company. Also no income since I can't work here. So he is the one who does the expenses. But we can provide his payslip, tax and bank statement. Will that be enough as a proof for the financial requirement?

Hi Mish. I don't have idea with the joint account. Can I open joint account here in Australia even thou I'm on a tourist visa? With letter yes my sister from USA sent me a letter before and our neighbours/ friends and family knows that we live together since last year. I went home last March for 2 weeks, then June we both went home to my country. And this month I'll be going home again for a month and coming back on November. Is that fine? Thanks

Go open a joint bank account! It is easy as.

If you can't register the relationship then you have a problem especially if immigration give you a warning about keep coming back. The 12 months is mandatory we have seen people rejected who were short 12 months by a few days.

Yes anyone can open a bank account as long as they are present in Australia to do POI.

The separation is fine but immigration could question you next time you come in.

The issue you have is that there is no solid proof you are living together except for neighbours.

What about your mobile phone bill (presuming you aren't on prepaid). What about internet for home or foxtel? Anything you can get joint. The problem is you don't have much to show you are living together. DIBP likes to see things in black and white.
