Your fiancee must act as your sponsor. As part of this responsibility, she will have to show she can support you for at least the first 2 years before you get PR. DIAC will look at her occupation and how much she has earnt in the past 2 years, and they will also look at your occupation.

If they think this is not sufficient, then they will ask for an AoS. But, up to 3 people can do a joint one, and she doesn' t have to be one of the people that offers to do it. You can't give yourself an AoS. The total amount Centrelink needs for the AoS to be granted is around $26 000, based on the yearly amount of Newstart allowance.

If you want, you can also include tax assessements or a letter from your past employer to show your earnings for the last 2 years, but this is not a requirement.

As I understand it your girlfriend is your sponsor so she must show some way that she would support you if you were unable to self support for whatever reason eg: illness. If she herself can't show how she would support you then a third party can write a statement eg: her parents could say that you can both stay with them and that they'll pay your living expenses until you are able to do so for yourself. You could also include a statement or include documents explaining why it is that you think you'll be alright anyway such as bank statement showing you're absolutely loaded or whatever.
