  1. Hi, I've got a ton of statutory declarations to get completed (references, proof of skills etc). I'm using the standard form: http://www.ag.gov.au/Publications/Documents/CommonwealthStatutorydeclarationform.pdf Is it ok if the declaration is longer than one page? Does the witness have to sign every page or anything? Thanks a lot, Pete.
  2. Hi there We are compiling our evidence for a defacto partner visa, which we are applying for offshore. In the partner booklet it says that if you are outside Australia and you are unable to get Australian permanent residents to complete form 888 for you, you can obtain statements from people who know you and your sponsor, which should be appropriately witnessed. Friends and family and completing statements for us. Do they need to provide their contact details (telephone numbers) in their statements? And can anyone tell me if the Australian High commission contact the people who complete Stat Dec's... to interview them? I just want to make sure i get it right - its all a bit nerve wracking! I also want to give my friends and family advance warning that they might get an interview. Thanks in advance for any help Charlotte
  3. Hi guys, Just quick question on personal statements myself and my partner need to do about our relationship - do they need to be witnessed in the same way as the statutory declarations or do we just need to sign them? Thanks S :cute:
  4. Hi all, I have been offered a position starting as soon as possible for a 12 month period in Melbourne for which I will be applying for a 457 visa. My partner also wants to join me and originally we thought he would be able to get a 457 also but unfortunately, although he has been offered work he cannot get sponsorship. We have been together for a number of years but only lived together since March this year after he returned from a 4 month work placement in Australia (I joined him for the last month). However, we don't have much evidence in terms of living together therefore are hoping to be able to provide some Statutory Declarations to support what evidence we do have (travel documents, joint savings account, photos, invites etc). Does anyone have any advice for who to get to give a Stat Dec, who to witness it and what to include in it? And any other advice would be really gratefully received!! Thanks!
  5. G'day all, My girlfriend and I, along with a lot of you guys I imagine, are currently going through the application circus with a hope of one day being able to make a new and better life for ourselves in Oz. As we're applying together for a skilled-sponsored visa (with my girlfriend's aunt as our sponsor), and we aren't married, we are having to prove our 'de facto' relationship. It would be good to hear from others who are having to do this really annoying task...and I'd be really interested to hear testimonials from any of you who have been through the process and come out of the other side! It's a bit of a nightmare really. We've been together since May 07, and lived together since Feb 08. As we haven't lived together for a full year we're having to get 'Statutory Declarations' signed by friends and family (countersigned by a Notary Public). Finding a Notary Public locally is a challenge in itself. On top of that we've gathered as many things as possible - dating back as far as possible - with both our names on (holiday bookings, bills, shared car insurance, etc). Anyone in the same boat? Ultimately we have to prove that we have been in a continuous relationship for at least twelve months.....think we might have to delay our application till Feb 09 at this rate. Pity, because we've really done our homework and everything else is in order - the application forms are filled in and gathering dust. That's my rant over (thanks for reading by the way). To all of you in a similar situation, I hope you stick at it and get the outcomes you hope for. Best regards, Mat.
