Default 47SK - Please Help !

Just a few questions relating to 47SK.

How much is it to apply, form 990i states AUS$1125 for apps lodged overseas and AUS$1670 for apps lodged in Oz. I live in U.K but will be posting my application to Adelaide so what fee do I have to pay.

Family members included in this application? Does a defacto spouse count as a family member?

I overstayed on a working holiday visa a few years ago, where do I claim this on the 47SK form, is it the health/character (part g) section or page 10 section 48 which asks "Have you, or any other person included in this application, ever had an entry permit or visa cancelled in Australia" Strictly speaking it wasn't cancelled, it merely expired, I applied for a bridging visa before I left the country.

Can anyone give me any pointers in proving defacto relationship, I have been living with my girlfried for nearly five years, we have a lease, but the majority of our bills are in either hers or my name, not both, this is the same with our bank accounts. We do have a savings account but it is in her name, I make monthly payments into that account from mine, would there be any point in providing details of this to immigration?

Lastly there are several pages (Children/Skill matching etc) that do not apply to me or my girlfriend, do I need to send these in blank or can I omit them from my application.

Any help you incredibly brainy people can offer will be hugely appreciated.

Cheers,

Glenn

There are numerous ways of proving your relationship which includes some of the
following:

You would need to provide various statutory declarations giving details of: How and
when you met Your financial arrangements, including any joint ownership of assets or
joint liabilities and how you share day-to-day expenses Your living arrangements Your
social life together, such as shared interests and activities Your relationship with
each other's family

You would also need at least two declarations from friends, relatives or work
mates stating how long they have known you as a couple, how long you have lived
together etc.

Other evidence could include: Proof of joint ownership of your home or rental
agreements Copies of household bills Copies of correspondence sent to both of you at
the same address Receipts from joint purchases Joint Bank or Credit account
statements Photographs of both of you together over a period of time
