Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi guys this site has been useful to me so far so I thought I'd give it another crack My partner and I have been together for over 4 years, my parents moved to Australia 6 months into our relationhip - I moved back to the UK to be with her and from then on we were living together. We decided that Australia was the better option in life so we left last year to come here, she on a WHV. We lived together until March this year, in which she had to go back to the UK to tie up loose ends. I stayed in order to get closer to my Citizenship, buy a car, renovate a Garage and so on - Whilst there she has had job struggles and family problems - Thats now sorted and we are going to go for the Spouse Visa (309) this month - We've hit a snag with the 12 month rule though - We can highly demonstrate that we have been together for the last 4 years through bank statements, pictures, cards, stat decs etc, and we can prove she was living with me up until she left. The problem is, is since she's been gone, we've mainly used MSN, Skype and Email - I have no records of the MSN and Skype records (On our own stupid part) but do have the Emails (Success at last) - It's only been the last month or so we've used the phone. I spoke to someone on the Immi phoneline, and they were pretty ignorant and didn't seem like they wanted to talk so I thought I'd ask here =) Is this going to be as big an issue as I'm fearing - I can throw emails at them but is the CO likely to care and shoot it down because it's just email? Our family and friends can state that they know of our constant contact and our future plans, so that's alright - but we are obviously worried that all of the things we have went through to be together in Oz (Ie having to be apart) will be pointless as they will just look at the almost 6 month gap we've had - We are both only 21 (almost) so have no real financial commitments, we just did everything together and took life as it came but we have plenty of evidence that we are a genuine couple. Has anyone else had a similar issue? And am I looking far too much into this? Because it's making us hesitatnt to put our money towards it, when I could just go back to the UK with it (not what we want to do at all). I'm not sure what to do now because it's just too worrying to get yourself built up for a big knockdown... Any thoughts, advice etc would be kindly appreciated
I would like to say first of all that I love the wanted down under programs, they are very interesting and informative. BUT why the hell are the people in charge showing the families very expensive houses, I mean, the family that was on tonight ( the butcher going to perth) his uk flat was worth £115k and they said he would earn around £17k per yr (£26k with O/T) but they were showing them round houses that were around £250k. what is the point in showing them those kind of properties when they know they cant afford they, in the UK if you were on £17k per yr no bank is gonna lend you £250k here so why the hell would the ozzies lend it to you, you would be able the repayments. I wish the bbc would be a bit more realistic about it, its as if they are doin a jim bowen from bulls eye showing the contestants that LOOK AT WHAT YA COULD OF WON, talk about kicking them in the teeth. Anyone else feel like this or is just me.:realmad:
