This is what evidence i have

child birth certificate
lots of photos
Stat dec from
me/partner
4 family members
2 from who we pay rent to
3 friends
car insurance with both names
bank account with both names
medicare card
receipts from local playgroup
We have both read the mrt website for both ideas and evidence needed.
This is all extra from what we also submitted for the original visa 2 years ago.

We should have a better idea tomorrow when i ring the migration agent.

Update:
I spoke to the agent today and she seems to think they will refer the case back to immigration (hopefully)
If not we should be able to ask for a Ministerial Intervention which could take upto 1 more year.

I'm fairly sure they will deny the case in mrt with the way things have gone in the past.

It's good you've spoken to a professional, there's too much at stake. Let us know how it goes.

I see from other cases at MRT, that the immigration usually tells them there are no obstacles in lodging a new visa application, with update evidence. Wouldn't that be better than waiting up to a year for a ministerial intervention?? - Well, I just remembered this could be done only offshore, so that's not a good thing....

Let's hope your case gets referred back to the immigration, don't forget about compelling and compassionate reasons for that, prepare your case good.

Good luck!

Received a phone call today from the MRT and they said we have a favorable decision so we dont need to attend the interview. This was all because of the extra info i sent with the evidence of are relationship.
Just a case now of waiting for the official letter.

You need to meet all the criteria at time of lodgement -ie be married or have been de facto for more than 12 months. The 12 month requirement can be waived if you have a child of the relationship, but only if the child has been born when you lodge. Even if he or she is born the next day, this does not count as time of lodgement. If you did not hold a substantive visa when you lodged your partner visa application ( ie you were unlawful or held a bridging visa), you have to meet additional criteria - usually that you have been in a married or de facto relationship for at least two years, or have a child together. Again, you have to meet these requirements at time of lodgement. If your partner visa has been refused, you must not have been able to meet the requirements. However, if you have a child of the relationship now, the mrt will almost definitely overturn diac's decision, assuming there are no issues with your health or character (police checks).

We received a email yesterday asking for

Form 80
Australian national police check
Foreign police check
Medical examination

We have filled out the form 80 got an email conformation for the AFP and have completed the medical examination today.
But getting the Foreign police clearance from china is going to be a right pain. My wife's mother in china has been
told that she needs a copy of her fingerprints and recent photos and a copy of her id card all in 25 days.

Steps involved in getting the
Notary Certificate of No Criminal Convictions
1. Take passport 2x recent photos and authorization form to china consulate perth for fingerprint authorization.
2. Pay $30 and wait 4 days for to get fingerprint form back or pay $50 and wait 2 days.
3. Send cert copy of passport, authorization form, fingerprint form to someone you authorize in china (Fastest post is 2-4 days).
4. They take all the forms to your local police station and you get a No Criminal Convictions Certificate (Been told it could take 30days).
5. Take everything to the Notary Office and get your Notary Certificate of No Criminal Convictions (no idea of the time this takes).
6. Send to Australia/immigration.

We only have 26days left to submit everything im not sure but immigration might gives us an extension

You know this might take more than a month to obtain, why don't you ask for an extension already? Explain them clearly approximate processing time (like you did here), they should give you an extension (I assume).
