looks like we will apply on our own in that case. marriage is on the cards but not for a while yet, i dont want to rush it on her for the sake of a faster visa when we were told we would be successful once we built up the 12 months.

quick question, we started living together on January 16 2014 when i arrived into Australia on the holiday visa. we registered our relationship, we got a household bill in both our names, i was added to her car insurance. our joint statement shows the financial transactions of our joint household. i wasnt on the lease as the lease was already set up in my partners name but will a copy of my visa and flight records along with the documents listed above, be enough to show the date we officially started living together ?

edit : but to stay in ireland, marriage is a possibility


why oh why do governments make it so hard for people

Because you registered your relationship, you no more need to satisfy the 12-month living together condition as it won't apply to you. You can definitely provide all the evidence that you have mentioned in your above post along with the new evidence you've collected since your application got rejected and you can apply again either on your own or hire a new migration lawyer, your call Whatever you're comfortable with

The only answer to your question is- so that only genuine people move to Australia, at least that what I think
Hope everything works out for you. Please do keep us updated. Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hey Becky - he actually didn't register his relationship in a state that recognizes it, so it won't be valid for the purpose of waiving the 12-month cohabitation requirement.

No, your visa won't prove when you started living together, just when you arrived in the country. You'll need bank statements or correspondence addressed to you or bills or something to prove it.

Sorry for the confusion OP Thank you for correcting me CG
You will need to provide evidence of cohabitation for a minimum of 12 months to be able to get your application approved in that case since your state doesn't recognize the registration since that was the reason why your first application was denied.

As CG said, bank statements, bills, rental lease, social context of the relationship can also be used as evidence.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

cheers ladies, yeah we're covered by all those. our bank statements whow increased activity after january 16th from my moving there, we got the broadband installed in the house in both our names. she got me added to her car insurance so i could drive etc
as CG said, WA does not recognise the registered relationships which is silly. i dont know why there isnt consistency across states.

I'm not sure what the deal is with WA, but I know in NSW that lawyers can only hold a lien over your documents if you haven't paid their legal fees. If you have paid your legal fees simply request the documents back.

I completely agree with gtcman, your lawyer should not get to keep them once you withdraw his representation from your case. In some cases even the immigration returns the evidence so you shouldn't let him keep important documents that you gave him to put together your file.

Hope you get your paperwork back and good luck with the second application. Please do let us know when we can help and don't forget to keep us udpated
Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

That's true. I'm not sure whether your lawyer holds any other documents relevant to your next application. Your judgment call as to whether you request them back, but you should be entitled to them that's all I'm saying

How long have you guys been living together so far? Maybe you can just complete the 12 months of living together.

What about registering your relationship? That will remove the 12-month living together requirement from your case. That could be the best option for you since the living together can be a catch-22 in your situation as you put it.
Your partner (I'm guessing is the sponsor) can register your relationship when she returns to Australia. One important thing though- relationships can't be registered in South Australia.

The medicals and PCC should be submitted by the applicant himself/herself.
Hope this helps. Please do ask if you have any more questions
Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

is there a way of registering your relationship in Victoria if one partner lives in victoria and the other lives overseas?
