If the CO chooses to, then yes the 820 is granted immediately followed by the 801 meaning you'd get the grants together.
Thanks for the response.

We were adviced by the case officer that we are not eligible for 801, because we lodged application at the time we had 18 months of marriage, while requirement is at least two years (it is 2,5 years that we have been married now)

It is very strange becuase we also have a child togetether, and have been in de-facto relationship for 4,5 years at the moment of lodgement.

Quote from the CO:

In your case, as you have lodged the Partner application on the basis of your marital status and therefore your application is assessed in accordance with the 1.5A regulation of the Family Migration Act. You have demonstrated that you have been married less than 2 years at the date of lodgement. Therefore, I regret to advise that you are not eligible to be considered for the 801.

Is it still reasonable to ask for 801? What is this 1.5A regulation of the Family Migration Act?
