Please come back to the forum and let us know what response you get from the Victorian authorities - it will help anyone else in a similar situation.

Good luck!

I just wanted to let you know that we were successful in getting our relationship registered with the Victorian government. It was a case of showing that I had lived in Victoria for a substantial period of time (which I had done, almost 2 years) and providing evidence to prove it.

I done this through the help of an immigraion agent and they liased with BDM on my behalf, im not sure if it would of been successful if i had of gone alone but in my opinion my agent played a big part. although it worked for me obviously there's still no gaurentees for anyone else but i wish everyone the best

Thanks for the update Damo and congratulations on getting your registration through. Not everyone who tries to do this in Victoria have been as fortunate as you. Good luck with the rest of the process.

Hi Damo,

Congrats ! Guess I'm kinda of similar situation here. Just wondering which migration agent you went to in order to consult about this matter? I am guessing your agent did a fantastic job simply because he/she knows her stuff.

I went and ask a few migration agents here in Melbourne,VIC and the only response I get so far from them is "You need to stay with your partner for at least 12months" which is kinda annoying because this statement contradicts the requirement for a domestic relationship registration (by DBM VIC) i.e. 12 months of legal stay in VIC for both applicants & surely NOT RESIDING TOGETHER WITH YOUR PARTNER FOR AT LEAST 12 MONTHS. Hence if you look at the registration form, there are 2 separate columns for residential address for both applicants and certainly not just ONE to imply that both of you are staying together.

And I've talked with the cust. service personnel in DBM and apparently you can have separate residential address. That's great especially when we do not have enough evidence that we are staying together under the same roof for the fact that we are truly committed to each other. Once you've got your relationship registered, then you basically could claim extra points in the new point test, after 1st july 2011 or to apply for the partner visa apart from getting the "12-month stay with partner" waived.

I personally think that for whichever situation that we are in, it's important to consult DBM first and then talk to the migration agents (if applicable) to re-clarify this matter.

And Damo, congrats again and hope you enjoy your stay in Oz and please...could you send me the details of your migration agent to jasonspitziri@yahoo.com. Thanks heaps

Regards,

Damo - I am in the same situation you were some time ago, and I need to get in touch with the migration assistant that you used ASAP. Would you be able to send his contact info to frederikeriksen@hotmail.com ? This would be extremely useful. Thank you.

Hi everyone,

Just thought I would ask my question on this thread, since it is something related.

My boyfriend and I are planning ahead. He is on a working holiday visa, while I'm a graduate student. He stays over at my place several days a week. While it makes sense to move out together, it is impossible for me to move out with him till I finish my graduate studies (probably end of 2013). This is due to the rental prices here, and that it is just easier for me to stay on campus.

I am just wondering what is the likelihood of getting a defacto visa without living together for 12 months, but getting our relationship registered? We are planning to open a joint bank account as well. Would having the relationship registered offset the lack of proof of living together for 12 months?

Thanks

Offshore, there is also the prospective marriage visa.

In all cases you must provide evidence that your relationship is genuine and continuing. You either will have to wait, so you can satisfy the 12 month de-facto requirement or you must get married.

If you want to wait, then you either will have to get some other visa to stay here or leave Australia and apply offshore.

So In theory if we are married and only been together 3 months then that is ok for no 12 month wait? also my wife is on a student visa here in Australia would the bridging visa cancel out the student visa so we do not have to pay for studies any more , currently she can work 20 hours, will she be able to continue to work on the bridging visa whilst waiting for temporary, Thanks

Default register relationship

Hello, have you been living in Australia for at least one year?
I registered my relationship with my boyfriend, I jus had to show our bank statements for the last 12 months. So I could prove that we both have been living in Victoria for 12 months consecutively
