461 to 186 - TRT Stream

Hey guys,

has anyone here successfully transitioned from a 461 to 186 via the Temporary Residence Transition Stream? Or know of someone that has?

Quick background info:

My partner is a NZ citizen. (I'm aware that there is a new pathway to PR for NZ citizens coming soon but it doesn't look like she'll qualify for the income assessment part, unless my income can be considered as well.) I've been in AUS for 5.5 year - first year on a 417 whv then 4.5 years on a 461. I've been working as a hospitality manager for the last 3 years and should have sorted out a 457 for myself but didn't and now obviously that option has passed with the abolition of the 457 being replaced by the TSS which isn't a pathway to PR

An immigration lawyer has suggested that I might be able to go straight for a 186 visa via the TRT stream but says there is an element of risk with this. I obviously don't want to spend the sizable amount of money to get rejected.

Online the visa info says:

This visa is a permanent residence visa. You can​ be in or outside Australia when you apply. If you are in Australia, you must hold a substantive visa or a bridging visa A, B or C.
The visa has three streams:
The Temporary Residence Transition stream is for subclass 457 visa holders who have worked for two years, while holding a subclass 457 visa, in the same occupation with their nominating employer (who is not subject to a labour agreement and who has lodged a valid nomination with us under the Temporary Residence Transition stream), who wants to offer them a permanent position in that occupation.

The lawyer says he knows of instances where at 444 visa has successfully transferred onto a 186 via the TRT.

Can anyone confirm a sucessful instance of this happening or offer any other relevant advice? All help much appreciated.
