This may seem like a stupid question, however, I would like advice from someone who has possibly been through this before and maybe even had an answer on this from an 'official' source...
I am finalising my 820 application and making sure all sections are complete and accurate. I have been with the o/h for nearly 6 years, and we recently got engaged here in Oz. The engagement wasn't to start planning a wedding, heck, we don't know whether it will be one, three or five years down the track!?! So, on form 40SP do we still stick with 'Defacto', as the application originally was, or can we put engaged with 'N/A' or 'Unknown' on the Date of Intended Marriage?
Like I said I know this may sound almost stupid, but I just want to make sure this is right. It may seem obvious that "of course its engaged", but I wouldn't want it to work against us if we put 'Engaged' without knowing a date and this then looking like we've just got engaged to enhance the visa application without any thought of marriage, when truth is, engagement was just the next step and something I had wanted to do for a long time, but never had the money or opportunity to in the UK, but have while in Oz.
I'm thinking the truth (as always) would be best, but I just wanted to check if it's actually acceptable to put 'Unknown' on Date of Intended Marriage?
Whilst we are on the topic, 820 is the 'Onshore Temporary Partner Visa', but I am hoping that due to the length of the relationship I can get assessed for PR (801) straight away, so do I file Form 80 (Personal Particulars) as an application for a 'Further Temporary Stay' or an application for PR? Or do I attach 2x Form 80's, one for 820 (indicating Temp) and one for 801 (indicating PR)?
Thanks in advance for any help you are able to give.
