    How many Stat Dec's? (888)

    My partner and I are about to apply for my Spouse Visa (309). We've read previous posts on here and have decided to 'Frontload' the application as that seems to move things along quicker. My question is how many Stat Dec’s (888) did people include? So far we have 2, one from my partner’s father and one from her cousin, both Australian citizens. Do you think 2 is enough? Thanks.

  5. Hello All Thanks to Chris I now know I need 2 Stat Decs and was wondering if anyone can help me with the wording. I have seen some old posts where members said they would provide copies or examples and was hopeful there was some kind member still about that can help. Basically I need 1. Stat dec to support a genuine relationship between myself and my hubby ... why I am not sure ... but I will send whatever they ask for! 2. Stat dec for children from a previous relationship where father has left country and cannot be traced. Many, Many Thanks Jen x :smile:

    Stat dec and solicitors

    Can anyone help, I have to get my statutory decleration signed by a solicitor. Can you please tell me roughly how much they change. Im assuming its not just a simple charge like for certification of a passport etc:jiggy:
  7. Just noticed that the 2 Australian people who fill in the 888's about your relationship need to have proof they are Australian...? One of the people doing it for us is the OH's mum... she's a bit of a stress puppy and just getting the form signed will be enough of a big deal. She doesn't even have a computer let alone a scanner or printer so god knows how she's going to get a copy of her passport (which she only got for the first time last year) or get it certified. Does anyone have any suggestions please? Many thanks, Lx

    stat dec help

    Hi just wondered if anyone can help me. Does anyone have a copy of a stat dec or help with the wording off one for my ex to sign as I want to take my son to live in Australia. I have spoken to the Australian Embassy in London who said that I need this also even though my ex has already signed form 1229, any help suggestions greatly appreciated. :rolleyes:
  14. We are sending off our defacto visa application tomorrow but we have just received the stat dec from my mum and instead of defacto partner she has put interdependant partner. Do you think this will be ok to include or should we not put it in? What do people think? To me it looks like she doesn't know what visa she is applying for when I've looked on the immi.gov.au website and it says interdependent is same sex when we are opposite sex. She says she looked on a legal website and it says interdependant is just when its two people who are dependant on each other and doesn't matter what sex. What do people who have applied and been granted partner visas think? Thanks!

  16. Hi there, My husband Danny (30) me (30) and our daughter Matilda (10 months) are coming over to Oz for Christmas and we were hoping to meet up with some people who are based on the Central Coast as we are planning to make the move next summer and would love some advice about the area. We are staying in The Entrance from the 18th to 24th December before heading over to Melbourne for Xmas and Sydney for new year. I have stayed on the Central Coast a number of times, but this will be the first time we will be looking at it as an area to relocate to, so any advice would be a huge help. I am a teacher, so would be interested to meet anyone who works in education and Danny is in sales. I know that Christmas will be a busy time for everyone, but if anybody out there has a few hours they could spare a few poms desparate to be down under, we'll happily buy you a beer in exchange for your words of wisdom! Thank you!! Sarah:yes:
  17. before i start i know there are still applicants from aug/sep/oct/nov also still waiting BUT there are applicants in jan/mar/apr and may with visa grants WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT? :realmad: i am happy for these people - no i am really its not their fault that we are still waiting but can anyone offer any advice to me. i am using an agent who is very helpful - we have front loaded everything so that as my agent calls it it should be decision ready but should i be onto my agent complaining about the order of these grants ? maybe she would then send a chaser to the dept ? or do i just need to sit tight? i do apologise i am usually so positive and optimistic so this is soo not like me but my son is ready to go into p1 on aug 18th and i really wanted to have my visa so i dont need to start him. help what can i do thanks sjs

  21. Hi to all you IT Wags and IT :GEEK: For those of you who included Stat Decs in your application, can you tell me what you wrote in them. Oh has to do 2 stat decs, for references, 1 for his current employer because we are not prepared to rock the boat so to speak and the 2nd stat dec is because the company oh worked for no longer exists. Have ask our agent for guidance but not heard back from him as yet (he is based in oz). Any tips greatly received. Also do they have been witness by a solicitor or can a jp do it??? Thanks Mandisfam IT Wag

    Help pls...stat dec.

    Hi Everyone, Could anyone clear this query up for me please? I have finished all my references for the TRA (finally) apart from one thing. I'm a hairdresser and when I left the last Salon I worked for to join the Salon I'm currently working at, I contacted some of my clients I had at that Salon and told them where I was going. Consequently my old boss has refused to give me a reference even though i've apologized to her face-to-face and explained the situation. Now she is not returning any of my calls/texts. I do not want to ask my current boss to 'extend' the period that i've worked for her for as I really don't want to provide any false information. So, I thought i would write a statutory declaration, what i'm confused about however is if I can provide a stat dec for my situation? I'm not sure if a stat dec is only taken when your last employeers have closed down/cease to trade? I'm pretty sure that this address Australian Government Attorney-General's Department is where I get the stat dec from so do you think i could just print off the form, write it up and get it signed from a solicitor? Would this be okay for my situtation? I haven't got any visual proof of any contact i've had with my old boss. Thanks for your help. :arghh:..................................:yes:................................:biglaugh: TRA nearly finished In oz with visa!!!!!
  23. I did have an example but i think it was lost when are hard drive went :arghh: last year. Can anyone email me an example, Mark is on a role and i don't wanna have to wait for my lovely agent to get out of bed.
