Default proof of residence

Hi

I have a question regarding evidence for relationship proof for applying NZ residency. Me and my partner are living together for past 11months and we are married for 10 months. However the rent agreement is on my partners name. How do I prove that we are living together in the same house?

We have the following proofs to show
1. Marriage certificate
2. Pictures of us together
3. Travel tickets
4. Internet bill on my name and telephone bill on partners name with the same address

Thanks in advance

Hi,

You prove your time living in a partnership any way you can. Doesn't matter how trivial the evidence seems and the more evidence you provide the more convincing a picture you will show Immigration. You can't show too little.

If you have only lived together for 11 months you do not meet the criteria yet.
Minimum is 12 months for a Residency application.

Marriage and or having children together doesn't prove a relationship but you must of course include this evidence if you have it.

A joint mortgage or joint rental contract is ideal but in your case not possible.
How about a joint bank account or a joint credit card account, joint finance for a loan etc ?
If not, individual accounts and bills to the same address will also be good.
Utility bills, internet account, sky tv, fixed phone line account etc etc.
Lots and lots of pictures spanning your whole relationship including the wedding.
Maybe a wedding invitation to a guest.
Travel tickets.
Tickets to events you have been together.
Joint invitations you have both received to other weddings/parties etc.
Evidence from your respective employers that you both live at the same address.

Regards,
