820/801 Statement

Hi Guys,

Ill more than likely post a few threads in the coming days as mine and my partners application date is approaching ha!

I was wondering if someone wouldn't mind reading my person statement and just letting me know if they think I should expand on anything or include anything more, I know personal statements are your own way of discussing your relationship but to get some advice on mine from someone who doesn't know about my relationship would be great.

Also if anyone could add any advice on the statement process that would be awesome!

Not a wise action. Someone might copycat your statement and submit it as theirs. Then it will raise a question of genuineness of your statement.

You can approach a registered migration agent that do a check on your application before you lodge for a small fee.

Oh thanks for the advice.

I won't be using a migration agent. I will just accept that statements are written differently by everybody.

I suppose i really wanted to know if the flow of my statement is ok, for example instead of putting headings for certain things i have just written my in a way that answers all 'questions'. Somewhat essay form, but with emotion, whereas my partner has written his as somewhat factual and dull haha

I've read another forum member describing her partner's statement as cut & dry/factual as opposed to the member's lovey-dovey and detailed statement. Mine started out as essay-style like yours, but I've rearranged it a bit with headers in the event they need to refer to it later for quick information/confirmation of info provided. My partner's is the lovey-dovey one, and I think it's fine to leave it that way. It seems that as long as you provide the requested information, and the facts in the two statements are aligned with each other and the supporting evidence you provide, then it will be fine.

There is no right or wrong way to do it. One thing I would suggest is to make sure the dates in both statements match.

I also think it is good when both statements cover something different in them. I know with mine and my husband's there were some things I skimmed over where he went into detail and vice versa.

yeah, I've written mine mostly in a dry and factual way but also included bits related to love and commitment. I'm just wondering about one thing. I was going to mention how I supported my wife during a few brief periods of a) hospitalization (for minor surgery) and b) unemployment.

Is it a positive or negative to include such information in my statement?

Edit2403, I think those would be positive to include. My partner, the sponsor, has had significant health issues and I was the bread winner throughout that time. It speaks to the nature of commitment aspect they want to know about - you are supporting each other through difficult times and not abandoning each other. If you can describe times when you've both done that for each other, I think that is even better. But, as has already been said, there is no right or wrong way, as long as your statement hits on the points about which they inquire.
