Hi, here is our new and basic query for forum readers. Pl reply if this suits you to share your ideas or experience.
We are Australian citizens. Our son got engaged in late Jan 2020, in India. His fiancé lives in India. Following their engagement, we had fixed a date for their wedding as early June 2020 to be celebrated in India. But, due to the unexpected pandemic, we couldn’t proceed with our plan; it's now mid June 2021, more than a year since they are living away from each other after their engagement, in this unavoidable situation.
We are now looking at Immigration website and are aware of the two types of visas possible to bring her here from overseas. One is SC 309 / 100 - partner visa temp / permanent offshore application and the other is prospective marriage visa SC 300. As they are not yet married and unable to maintain de facto relationship, we are confused as to which one is the best option in our case. We would like to know the subtle difference(s) between these two types of visas. This will help us clarify the best option and then apply for the visa asap.

The subclass 300 prospective marriage visa is for couples who have met, but have not normally lived together for 12 months, and who plan to marry.

The subclass 309 is normally for a married couple, or a de facto couple who have lived together for a year or more.
