    Hey all thanks so much for the help. I think I may just take up that idea and pay for the check over or even just the whole hog and hiring an agent. The thought of getting rejected is literally making me feel physically ill so even though it’ll mean being worse off in terms of money the piece of mind/approval is very much worth it

    Hey folks In the process of applying for the 309 visa for/with my partner and v overwhelmed by the whole process and hoping to get some advice clarification on a few points... Do the documents I submit need to be certified? Confused about this one bc on a few blogs I've seen people specifying they had documents certified. However I can't find anywhere on the Home Affairs info page specifying documents need to be certified. When I applied for my son's (Aussie) citizenship by descent it was explicitly stated that the documents I submitted needed to be certified. Most of our supporting witnesses will be British (currently live in the U.K.). I'm concerned having majority non-Australians as our supporting witnesses will "hurt" our case. Any insight on this from folks who've been in a similar position? Being his sponsor what actually do I need to do to support my partner’s application? Do I need to lodge an entirely separate sponsor application? Or attach a form to his application? Quite confused. We applied for a travel exemption for my partner to enter Australia during the covid restrictions. We ofc had to show evidence that we were in a realtionship. His exemption was approved. I'm thinking of including this to strengthen our case...my logic is home affairs has previously "acknowledged" our relationship and travelling abroad in a pandemic demonstrates our commitment to each other and our families? My partner thinks it'd be irrelevant so just wondering what others' thoughts are. Form 888 which is filled in by supporting witnesses…anyone applied from the uk? V confused about what to do bc the form won’t be considered a stat dec unless it’s filled in by an Australian (or permanent resident) in Australia? Any general advice/need-to-know information from anyone whose done it for those applying without an immigration specialist? I'm terrified that our application will be rejected and we were initially going to use an agent/lawyer but unfortunately our financial situation has changed and it's something that we can no longer afford. A massive thank you to anyone who chooses to comment/offer their wisdom :-) I’m stressing so much over this application (I hate paperwork and when I moved to the uk I used immigration agents for my entire visa/residency process) so really appreciate any/all help
