Ok my history:

In Australia since nov 07, defacto relationship for 2 years to an Aussie, married for 14 month...

I have an agent which isn't helpfull sometimes.. Spent already 20k.
We applied for a 457 misled by the first agent as my husband wasn't divorced at the time and we weren't together for 12 month at that time.
Visa application will get refused in 1 month as there will be the final hearing. I am currently on a bridging visa a after a working holiday visa. My new agent (the other one got fired) applied with me for a spouse visa 4 weeks ago and needs to apply for a bridging visa c. I worked in my job 20month so far as my conditions were changed previously. How likely is it to get conditions changed on a bridging visa c so I can work? My agent promised me I can work as otherwise their company will sewed by my employer as many things went wrong, nothing illigal though just incorrect.

So how likely is it that I can continue to work? Really need to. My husband is on a wage of 135k sounds a lot but he pays alimony childsupport hecs debt an old loan from his marriage and a car loan as ours broke. He pays an Sydney rent avarge of 510 per week and travel costs for his kids to visit us from the country. There is no more then 230 left in his account in the end of the month and all payments are minimum payments. I do pay for groceries petrol and our travel as my privat health insurance adding up to 1000 per month also being left with 1500 to save each month. I calculated we earn 2250 per week and spend 2000 as we have to that's without going out. We have no savings due to the car deposit and recent visa costs. How likely is that I can work? We otherwise don't know what to do... Even moving to a smaller place won't bring us much as we do still have the other bills. Selling the car would be an option so we lost a fair bit though we are looking to start a family. I am really scared,

That sounds like one sort of a situation you have there Shiregirl and and at an outrageous cost too.
I do not quite understand whether you did get a 457 or what visa you know is going to be refused in a month.
Anyway, have a look at http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/1024i.pdf and you'll see there a reference to getting permission to work on bridging visas and for financial hardship, you will need good facts to show that with your partner on the salary he is.

Yes the 457 gets refused so my bridging visa a gets cancelled and I come on a bridging visa c. My solicitors were saying about being together for 2 years makes a differnce also...? Well I have bank statemtents and bills I can show them.. I mean u can't live on 250 bucks a month after bills, that covers for my husband to get to work and no food... Yes they messed it up and if everything goes well though we leave it, otherwise they get sewed...u don't even want to know... We got wrong information and they putter wrong things on application and we had to redo it ended up at the trialunial or what's it called. Documents got missing and so on...
If I get my work right refused cause they screwed up I will freak out. I looked there already but how likely do they grand a pernission to work specially if my husband is on a high wage?

Yes, two years together is a good start to getting a partner visa and with supportive documents/evidence it may not take too long to be processed.
Likelihood of work permission on a bridging visa is going to be very much decided case by case but they do not have the provision there to refuse people and as I have said, make sure you have a good accounting of where all his salary goes and documents to back that up.

Otherwise it's push bikes [ The Premier uses one ] and mince and spaghetti/pasta/rice for a while, a good healthy winter warmer with plenty of veges and spices even without the mince, good whole oats porridge also a warm healthy start for the cycling.

It's just that I heard somewhere else that there is no way we would get through with that as my husband earns so much and that no one should support our lifestyle LOL. I mean we worked damn hard and I an worried I loose it all.
Haha after food transport to work by train we are in -650 bucks LOL including food. Have to move then I reckon. Extremly worried actually even though the solicitors promised I can keep working.
