Default 176 - urgent advise needed to show evidence of continuing relationship

Hi all,

I am about to apply for 176 with wife and 10 month old son as dependents.
I urgently need help for "evidence of genuine and continuing relationship" are scary.

I have been married for close to 3 years and my wife is a homemaker. We have a 10 month old son. We live with my parents.

The only proofs I have are :
1) my bank statement shows that I paid for regular gynaec consultations, delivery charges and shopping for baby. This covers last two years.
2) honeymoon travel one week after wedding
3) A joint account that I opened today
4) photographs at social gatherings

We don't have any loans or assets jointly owned. In summary, I don't have anything DIAC mentions in their list other than the above

Are the above enough? What more can i provide?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Other than above, my case is reasonably good:
Applying for Software Engineer 261313, ACS done
6.5 years with single employer, reputed company, no gaps
4 years computer engineering degree from reputed college, excellent academic record
very good salary and savings
IELTS L9,R9,W8,S8
75 points without state sponsorship
Applied for Vic and NSW state sponsorship today (Mar 9, 2012)

176 visa for Software Engineer - started Dec 2011

there is nothing to worry in your case as such. if you provide your marriage certificate it is enough. if you can show your spouse name in your passport it will add value. it is as simple as that.

Thanks a lot dreamaus!

That is a relief. I see from your threads that your case was somewhat similar to mine.
I submitted passport application for my son 3 days ago.

- Neither of our passports have spouse name on it. Also my passport has permanent address which is still our property but my present address is different. This will mean address change on my passport.

I will need PCC for myself and my wife.

passport application and PCC all go through the new Passport Seva Kendra in Hyderabad and I will need 4 separate applications/appointments for these. I am worried that things will take too long and my passport would be held up.

I am planning to apply for PCC for myself and wife immediately. This way, if I get my SS approval, I will still have both passports for 176 application. PCC would hopefully come by the time CO needs it.

What do you suggest?

1. For your son passport, either of the parent must have spouse name included else they will not allow to grant a PP for your son.
2. So, first thing you need to do is apply for change of address, inclusion of name and anything else necessary for both of your passports on the same day as your son's appointment or a day before that.
3. Go for your appointments, get things done for at least one of you and get the ack letter from the passport office.
4. With that ack letter and fee receipt apply for your son's passport with those docs are proofs. they will accept it.
5. Your son will receive pp in 3-5 days max as there will be no police verification.
6. PV will be done for both of you guys and you will get your passport in roughly 4-5 weeks but it all depends on when PSK receive the PV clear letter.
7. Apply for PCC after getting both of your passports and you will get the PCC on the spot as your verification was done very recently.
8. I did the same as above and it worked for me fine. Only thing is my wife's passport was issued in a different city than I applied so I have to wait for about 4 weeks for police verification.
9. For me it was change of address within the city so I got passport in 3 days but later verification was done. My son had no trouble getting the passport.

Good Luck

Default Thanks a ton

Dreamaus,

Thanks a lot for the detailed explanation. This is very helpful.

I am encouraged to move forward, but with one difference. I already submitted application for my son's passport at PSK. They asked explanation why our passports don't have spouse name but finally accepted marriage certificate. May be its more relaxed in Hyderabad.

On a side note, I read in another thread about a bizarre case of PCC being denied because passport doesn't have spouse name.

If your son's PP is issued only with your marriage certificate, you are lucky! Cool then.

yes, spouse name inclusion for PCC is only requested in Gujarat PSK...they are crazy...but they are final decision makers so you have to oblige.

Hi,
Would you please explain me what does PCC mean...is everybody required to get it done...
what is the difference between a secondary applicant and a dependent...
is it required that wife's passport should have husbands name on it..and my passport has address where i do not live anymore...so do i need to get my address changed to the current address on the passport..

Thanks in anticipation!..

Cheers,
Rinkesh
