  1. Hi, After reading lots of different posts i'm a bit confused as to what does and doesn't need to be witnessed and signed by a solicitor. We're applying for a GSM 175 and I will be a dependent de facto partner. We have asked friends and family (UK) to provide statements but i thought these DID need to be signed and witnessed by a solicitor but our statement doesn't? Is that right? Also i was under the impression for documents like education certificates and any documents supporting our relationship DID NOT need to be signed by a solicitor if they are scanned in, in colour?? I might have it completely wrong! All advice gratefully received!

  3. Hi Guys My partner and I are moving out of a shared house this weekend (4th Dec) as we need a car parking space desperately. We are searching for a couple or single who needs short term rental accommodation in the CBD. The room is a large double in a HOUSE, not apartment, with large walk in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom, sharing with 1 guy and 1 girl. Just off La Trobe street, in between Russell Street and Exhibition Street, it is perfect for trams and trains. 2 minutes from the QV centre and 5 from Melbourne central station. Rent is $300 pw with a reduced bond of $1000. If you are looking for temporary accommodation in the CBD, or if you know of anyone who is, please let me know and we will arrange a viewing. Cheers Melbsbabes

    Stat Dec Hierarchy

    Hi Im in the process of organising my Defacto visa and have a little question re stat decs. Does stat decs from my OH (Aus) family look better than say stat decs from friends. The reason being is I dont have a very good relationship with my OH parents and would be pretty hard to approach them if I needed stat decs from parents. Could anyone give me advice if IMMI would ask questions why we dont have stat decs from her parents????? Thanks :swoon:
  12. The stat dec form (888) for supporting evidence has a list of people who can sign but for certifying documents in Australia, is it the same list? Can a pharmacist or accountant certify documents for visa purposes in australia? we really need a seperate forum on certifying and signing stat decs.!!

    Stat Dec's info

    Hi, Can anyone advise if I should get Stat Dec to send in as history of my previous self employment? Diac havn't asked for one as yet just bank and tax docs for that period, was also thinking of getting my accountant to write me a letter also but just figured it may save time? Please advise? I'm currently working full time as an employee so may also get my boss to write a letter on my behalf just in case.... Thanks a mill :wubclub:
  14. Hi there, just putting the finishing touches to months of draining hard work (820 de facto visa onshore) and I just have one final question: is it ok for my partner and I to submit our (certified) statutory declarations typed or is handwritten favoured more? My fella has truly shocking handwriting, but I've worked so hard on this, I just want to make sure that everything is right! Getting them certified tomorrow, so I'm afraid it is an urgent one...! thanks, emma

  16. First Home owners scheme to continue Updated: 19:49, Tuesday May 12, 2009 First home buyers have another six months to locate their dream dwelling and still benefit from the boost to the first home owners grant scheme. As part of last year's 10.4 billion dollar stimulus package the grant was lifted from seven thousand dollars to 14-thousand dollars for existing dwellings and to 21-thousand for new homes. Set to expire on June 30 it's been extended as is for another three months before being phased out after December 31. It'll be halved between October 1 and December 31 meaning first home buyers will receive a total of 10-thousand-500 dollars for established homes and 14-thousand for new homes. Treasurer Wayne Swan says the boost has already helped 59-thousand people achieve the great Australian dream. Data released this week shows first home buyers accounted for 27.3 per cent of all home loans approved in March.

    Stat Dec's and Evidence.

    :wacko:Hi, am hoping to emigrate over to my sister on a remaining relative visa, and after posting visa and payment have received email requiring 2 stat decs one is evidence of my sister and myself's relationship this last 3 yrs and one is evidence that i am not in a defacto relationship (am single). My problem is that i paid my solicitor £250 for a stat dec from my sons father last yr and cant really afford another £500, is there a cheaper way to do this? also need evidence of my goods/assets what does this ntail? as i dont own my own home, i own a car and was just hoping to save up as much as i can before i go. hope someone can help. thankyou.
  18. Finally got the pre grant letter today - we had no warning - CO allocated 18/06 - our status didn't change until today! Good luck to all
  19. Hey everyone! Got a few questions for you all. NUMBER ONE I have been informed that it would be a good idea to get a stat. dec. from my partners GP, since he has met me and knows the nature of our relationship. How does this work? Do I have to bring a stat. dec. form to him, or just ask him to do one? Do me and my spouse have to sign it, or write anything on it? Also. We are going to apply for 'special consideration' and for this it is suggested we get a 'report' from a medical professional - should this be encompassed in the stat. dec or would we need a seperate document/form? if so, what document is that, and do we need to provide it to him? Also, are there any fees involved in this, does anybody know? Note: The stat dec is really to state that he knows of me, and that he is aware of my being in the picture for the last year as my spouses partner. The 'report' is to state that my spouse needs me here, due to health issues. _______________________________________________________________________ NUMBER TWO Again, for the 'special consideration' thing it is suggested I write a stat. dec. - Where do I get this stat dec form from? Is this the same form the doctor needs to fill out? I have only ever had dealings with the 'FORM 888 - Statutory declaration by a supporting witness relating to a partner visa application' and have no idea how to fill any other kind of statutory declaration. _______________________________________________________________________ Also, can anybody suggest any supporting documents for the 'Special Consideration' application? What do they need to support? Is there anybody here who is an 'expert' whom I could PM regarding Me and my Spouses particular situation and suggest evidence/documents etc relating specifically to me and my partner?? Thanks everyone! LL

    Dec. 08 175 case officer

    For all that are keeping an eye on 175 timelines, status page went to 'Application being processed further' on 20th May and agent rang this morning to say I have a case officer looking at my file. Nurse - lodged 16/12/08 - CO 20/5/09
  22. Hi, I'm new on here and wondered if anyone would be able to help me with some advice. I am getting married on 4th Sept in UK to my future husband who is an Australian Citizen. I met him in UK but he went back to Oz in October (after we got engaged) to take his son back who was in UK on a long holiday. He was in UK for 18 months and decided he wanted to be there for his son while he was still growing up. He managed to get his old job back too. We have only spent a few months living together before he left to go back to Oz. My daughter (from a previous relationship) and I have just got back from a 5 week trip to see what the area and the country were like as we'd never been to Oz before. As my fiance is renting a room in a house at the moment we are unable to apply for a spouse visa before I leave the UK as we don't intend on renting a house until we are all there, due to him being our sponsor. Can anyone tell me what I will need to take with me when I leave the UK to help with the visa application onshore? I know that I will need a signed Stat Dec from my daughter's father (does anyone have a template I could use). What is the situation with the medical and police check - do I go ahead and do these before I leave or wait til we are in Oz? My head is so mashed from trying to sort out our wedding and sorting out what I want to keep and what I need to sell in my house (as I'm going to rent it out) as well as getting a removal company in to ship the rest. I just don't know what to do first. We are planning on returning together after we are married and as he has already bought his return ticket the date is set for 28th September so I don't have much time. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated. :wacko:

    Stat Dec

    This site has been so helpful in putting together our defacto application. I can't seem to find an answer to the following... When a statutory declaration is being witnessed, does the person who wrote the declaration (ie friend etc) have to be there as it is being witnessed? So, do we need to bring all our witnesses into the solicitor's office or magistrate's court? Thank you very much to anyone who can help!
