Extending visitor visa

Hi all,
I had applied spouse dependent visa 9 months ago (23 may 2014)and still waiting for it.... my visitor visa though granted for a year but have a condition of stay upto 3 months in a row and it will expire on 27 july 2015, therefore i need to go offshore twice before it expires.

Do anyone suggest me:
1) How long it is takes the result of spouse dependent visa arrive these days.
2). Can i make my stay continous to the rest of my stay here, before my tourist visa expires. If yes, How?
3). If my spouse dependent visa was not processed before 27 july 2015 how can i extend and cntinue my stay here?

According to DIBP partner visa processing times are 12-15 months.

You can apply for another tourist visa in Australia and ask for any time up to 12 months (continuous). These visas, when granted, often have condition 8503 imposed. That means you can't apply for another visa in Australia after that.

If you visa was not processed before 17/7/2015 you would probably need to leave and apply for a new visa offshore.
