So you have been living together in Australia for the past year? That's good solid evidence of a bona fide marriage. No need to send any affidavits. They are low on the scale of evidence and only really of use to those who are struggling with other forms of evidence (eg couples who for religious, cultural or financial reasons cannot visit each other). The top category of evidence is time spent together. My husband and I have never lived together but we have seen each other around 40 times. We didn't send any affidavits and we were approved without any RFEs.

They aren't necessary for you. Your case is a very straightforward and simple one.

One thing I must say....

You mentioned "partner" in your post and your signature timeline mentions "boyfriend" but there is no mention of a marriage anywhere. For the I-130 you MUST be legally married at the time of filing. You can file the day after the wedding but you just be married already the day you submit. Nothing wrong with gathering stuff beforehand to build up your file.
