I understand your predicament. It will be hard to get around the 12 month living together requirement which is required at the time of lodgement. The department needs you to be living together for 12 continous months before you apply for you visa with only short temporary time spent apart.

Is there any way your partner can come back to the UK on another type of visa ?
