We got married last March 2014 in Australia after 2 years in a relationship. He visited me here and i've been to Australia for a couple of times too. I've been reading threads applying onshore while on tourist visa as long as there is a "No Further Stay" in the visa. I don't have that condition now and in multiple entries. So we taught on doing it while i am there and will lodge before my 3 months stay expires. Is it right to do it on my 3rd month?

My concern is you not having enough evidence after living together less than 3 months. You need to fulfill the 4 categories with the main one being financial so things like joint account and joint bills.

Have you read the partner booklet? If not take a read of that.

You also need things like ... beneficiary of super, wills etc. Mail sent to you at the address.

Honestly less than 3 months is not ideal to apply for a 820 especially when majority of bills come every 3 months.

Yes we have read the booklet and i guess we have enough evidence. In time of separation we just need to prove that we are still continuing and supporting each other and will just right a stat dec or statement why we are separated in span of time. We've already opened a joint account too.

Thanks for the tips we will have a look at those things.

What evidence do you have?

From what you have said it appears like you don't have much considering you have not lived together (that is where majority of the evidence is able to be gathered).

Have you considered applying offshore?

Evidence also needs to be "strong enough" for them to approve the visa. It's like if you want to prove someone guilty, it has to be beyond reasonable doubt.

Online is better

Please make sure you have done you evidence research. Being married doesn't mean a lot these days and you are from a high risk country so the burden of proof you have to supply will need to be stronger. And it seems they are only getting tougher!

Make sure you have solid proof of:

Joint finances
Social evidence (easy category to fill)
Joint household
Joint commitments

Your time apart, even if you have all the evidence in the world of keeping in communication - as defined by IMMI means that you "do not live separately and apart on a permanent basis".

If you have been apart more than you have been together I would say that you DO live separately and apart on a permanent basis.

If you can live together for 5-6 months you would have a lot more time to build the evidence and prove to IMMI that your relationship is "defacto" and "genuine and continuing".

Thank you! We might do it online and we are starting to gather our evidence so it will be ready by March.

I've read your post and it will be a big help for someone like me who is preparing for the lodgement of my application. Thank you.
