      hello and welcome to pia

      if adelaide is your goal then you are in the right place
      firstly check out www.adelaidebound.com

      and in regards to your question: i don't think you have to be married; but you'll have to prove your de-facto relationship. i think like any statements you have in the same name; letters from friends and relatives; maybe photos - everything that shows that you are together just like being married.

      i am sure someone will know more about it and can give better advice!

      Hi Laura, Anthony and Leon

      Welcome to PIA, can't answer your question with regards to a brickie's wages but someone will be able to and I'm pretty sure you'll get a lot of responses to help you on your way.

      Just wanted to say Hi and Welcome

      Hi Laura,
      Welcome to PIA
      I know you do not have to be married as when we started our application we weren't (we decided to take the plunge after 14 years and 4 kids together)
      You will need to do a form specifing how you met, how long you are together, any financial committment together ie mortgage, proof of living together etc. Our agent told us to make it quite detailed
      Hope this helps a bit

      Hi and welcome to PIA!

      We are in a "de-facto" relationship and everyone else is quite right. We had to provide bills in joint names (Council Tax etc), references from good mates/family members stating we were together for years and not just to get a visa and rental agreements in joint names. All of which is quite straight forward if you have been together for a while and living together.

      Don't be scared, they just want to know you are a real couple and not just looking to get a visa.

      Hope that all helps
