Question Partner visa help

Sorry for the long post... But how do you keep these things short!!*

Im an aussie girl and my partner is american, we've been together for almost 12 months, we want to get married in australia in a few months time. Our plan is to get married then apply for an onshore partner visa after that. I've been doing some research on it but i have some questions that im hoping someone who has been through a similar situation might able to answer or give me some idea.*

My first question, as we plan to marry, when he and his daughter arrive in australia, what do they say on their declaration card? They currently have tourist visas and will be entering on those (he was also here earlier in the year and said he was on a visiting holiday).

2. If they say that they are here for a holiday and then we get married can this cause any issues when applying for the temp/perm partner visa?

3. *Because they are both on these visas, and if i understand correctly he cant work until temp visa is approved, therefore he wont have an income coming in, although he will have some money. Will this be an issue when applying for the temp/perm partner visa? Or does he have to show a constant income coming in, even if im working full time?

4. If he does have to show a steady income how does he do this if he cant work?

We are really committed to each other and determined to be together but also want to do the right thing and dont want to do anything to jepordise his stay in the country. Im not sure if anyone can help answer these questions but ANY help or advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this.*

1/ Tourist visa for entry to Australia - (he cannot/must not work!)

2/You can get married in Australia if he is on a tourist visa - no problem.

3/ You will support him as sponsor - you will be able to show you can support him and his daughter on your income alone.....he cannot/must not work if the visa does not allow it.
Unless he has substantial savings to live off.....

4/ What does he do for work in the USA? Do those skills translate to Australia? Are his qualifications recognised in Australia?
Has he income from investments? Family money or substantial savings?
He cannot/must not work until legally permitted...if he gets caught then it can add years to the visa process.

Read the partner visa guide book at least 3 times and then do it again....there is plenty of information and answer to your questions.
You will have to know this as sponsor anyway......
