My girlfriend is from the UK and on a working holiday visa. It expires October 22nd 2017, we will have lived together for 12months on this day also as she arrived on October 22nd 2016 and we were in a relationship before that for 3 months. We have a solid case for de facto and all evidence to go with it. My question is,
Do we have to wait to lodge the application on October the 22nd? (as this is exactly 12months) and if so does she have to leave the country until the bridging is granted? (we are applying in writing as we have a massive pile of evidence)
I've read conflicting reports that there is a strong chance for rejection if we are even 1 day less then 12months living together. thanks in advance

registration not available in my state. we have had a meeting with a migration agent a few weeks ago, we didn't know to ask this question then.
The 12months living together is no problem we will just apply at exactly 12months but what I really need to know is should she apply for a 3 month holiday visa or leave the country once we have applied as to not overstay here holiday visa while we wait for for new one. I have phoned immigration they were very rude so id thought id try my luck here
