  1. I haven't applied for that visa, but to be honest after a month for me it's still classed as dating even though you both decided not seeing anyone else. When did you make the commitment to it being living together rather than staying over? Eg. My daughter has been seeing her boyfriend almost a year, they go away together, she stays over at his place, they're exclusive and have plans for holidays in a years time - but they don't class themselves as defacto but still boyfriend and girlfriend because they haven't made that commitment to living together full time.
  2. Then word it as living together at separate addresses and all that entailed rather than spending the night
  3. I don't think it's necessary to tell them when you started spending the night together - you will still 'dating' at that stage I assume. When did you make the decision that your relationship was exclusive and committed to long term and living together/sharing bills etc .. rather than having sleepovers.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    I don't visit this thread unless there's been a report - seems the last few pages have been about UK V Aus rather than leaving Europe. Do try to keep on track, there are far too many pages to clean up the thread would end up being closed instead, which is a shame for the ones who are actually debating the topic

    Google slider shoes .. it's what sports people wear - just slip them on - no tough bit between your toes

    Positive Emigrating To Australia True Life Stories

    We've just celebrated our 12th year in Aus - we still enjoy it, find plenty to do (as do our young adults) .. there'll be ups and downs because that's life, nothing and nowhere is perfect. We remain happy here, aren't bored, don't feel isolated and have more savings than we've ever had before which allows us to travel to see other parts of Aus and overseas. People on the forum often say to ask yourself if you can see yourself retiring here … my answer is yes I can and can't wait lol. I have lovely memories of growing up in the UK, but I don't have any anchor to it and miss very little

    de facto ?

    Provide evidence of the circumstances that made her return and also evidence that your relationship has continued. You could also run it by a RMA

    Am a bit tired of questions about RRV

    Just commenting that asking a question often is a way of jumping into the PIO pool, and not everyone is familiar with the search function or know how to navigate forums... we'll all have done it at some time. Some RRV's aren't straight forward (even though they seem to be at first glance). Not a big deal at all.

    Am a bit tired of questions about RRV

    I agree with Cal - questions are what keep the forum going. Agents are kind enough to offer some advice, but at the end of the day, it is their jobs and if they posted everything for free, they'd be out of business.
