    I am not enturely sure but I think for any spouse visa you need to sponsor them so therefore you need to show how you would support them. They will want to know all about your relationship and proof of its existance ie pictures, statements from friends etc. Bank statements may help if that is how you are going to support you wife. Good luck. We have to go down this route soon

    I came over on the misus PR visa as a spouce.

    We had to prove how long we had been together (14 years and not married).

    Supply xmas cards to us both

    Party invites to us both.

    Bills in both our name going back at least 5 years.

    Statements from us both about our relationship.

    Basically loads of stuff to prove how long we have been together.

    Best thing to do i think is to give an agent a call but im pretty sure that she will have to apply for her own visa.

    Hi, something that keeps creeping up is this proof of scialising together. My husband and I got together about 5 years ago now (however we were together for a short while as teenagers) we've been married now for 2 years. We got back together just as I accepted a job in Cornwall and I moved myself and my eldest daughter who was 2 at the time down here, my husband decided to join me and we started a new life down here. As I already had a child we did not go out a lot as we could never afford a baby sitter plus my husband works as a chef so his evenings were often spent working. I quickly fell pregnant with my second child and the problem was even greater. We both have friends from our work but its taken a long time to get any "real" friends and they certainly aren't joint friends. I have never been invited to a party (that sounds sad lol) and we have no pictures of us together as such apart from our wedding, honeymoon and from when we were teenagers. Obviously things like christmas cards we do have (well we will have I always chuck em and they never have a date on them but at least I can show them) we also have emails sent between us in those early days. PLus all the finacila bits and pieces that you would expects.

    But I am worried that there will be a big issue in the fact we have nothing to prove we socialise together. WHat are peoples thoughts on this?

    G'day kate.

    Which part of kernow are you in ??

    We also use statements from friends and family bout how long we have been together.

    Joint bank account statements work well as proof as well

    Don't worry so much about the proof of socialising - concentrate on the finances, history of your relationship etc, and as someone else said, make sure you had a couple of good stat decs from people who know you. If your relationship is genuine, you'll have the proof you need. Basically, what they want to make sure of is that you won't be a financial burden on Australian society and that you didn't marry for the visa;)

    hi you sound like me and brian haha, weve been together 10 yrs and i got pregnant quite quick and as yourselves we didnt have babysitters so dont socialise together omg when you write it down it does seem really sad haha, we also are going over on a spouse visa, i reclaimed my citizenship and our 5 kids ( 2 from a previous relationship) all got granted citizenship by descent, we all have our aussie passports so know were just trying to save for his visa it only costs £875 if you do it yourself i did ask an migration person how much they charge and they said £2.500 i nearly had a heart attack haha just gotta figure all the jargon out may take a while haha id love to hear why your o.h is citizen by descent cos im nosey haha, just when you think youre the only 1 you find other people so i get all excited that were not on our own haha x

    We didn't have any trouble at all with the spouse visa. One thing I used was the round robin Christmas letters I write every year - gave them about 5 or 6 of them printed out - they had photos, family news in etc and you'd hardly go to that bother if it wasn't real. Mind you, I don't think you'd have 3 children just for a visa either! Maybe 2, but not 3! :)

     

    We each wrote our statement, our story of how we met etc, we also supplied a couple copy letters of our correspondence before DH moved to England on his working holiday visa etc.

     

    I think if the docs are well organised, well presented, and as thorough as you can get between yourselves (copy anniversary cards etc too, I think we did a few of those) they are just going to be pleased you have done a good job of the application and it will be easy for them to satisfy themselves its all in order. Ours came back by return as soon as they'd got my medical stuff.

     

    I really don't think you need a migration expert for a spouse visa unless you feel your circs are really complicated. Just got to be methodical and make sure you haven't forgotten anything. We applied only for me, and did that after we had got the boys their dual citizenship, so I was the only one without an Aussie passport.

     

    I am just a bit annoyed that we hadn't by that point done DH's British citizenship because we will have to do the reverse procedure if we ever go back to the UK. We've done that once before when we got married (went to Canberra to get his spouse clearance) and that was pretty easy too. Actually that was a walk in the park we hardly had to do anything much at all for that one.

     

    If you have children you can apply for permanent residence without any wait at all, and can get centrelink and all that without a residence wait, so it was very easy to get in the system here with that.

    Can you get a spouse visa if one of you is a permanant resident (i.e. on a PR visa, but with nationality of another country), or does one of you have to be a citizen - i.e. have Australian Nationality and a passport? Just curious (some would say 'nosey' but hey...)

    your partner (the sponsor) only need to be a permanent resident for the spouse visa, its the visa I'm applying for, my fiancé is a permanent resident. I went through an agency as our situation was complicated.

    hi kate lynnette here, i sent off for brians spouse visa last thurs and we were the same as you, no social life, hardly any photos of us together but i did have ones from over the yrs of us singly with the kids, i just got loads together photocopied them and sent them off, our main thing is how to prove what assetts we have, i had an email off our c.o yesterday and he asked us what money we had and what assetts and goods we had together or seperately?? i know youve got to be able to support the person your sponsoring but our main money is in the equity on the house, im really worried now that it may be denied cos we havent got savings as such in the bank x
