Spouse VISA HELP,

Hello Everyone, I just want to double check if I am on the right track since I am quite new to this and was unsure about few things.
Well my Sponsor is my Australia GF she is 20 years old full time student and I am 23 International student. We both have been in a relationship from last 2 years? We can provide 1 year lease electricity bills and phone bills on her name. And on top we have also certified our relationship from the Court 6 months ago to make our file stronger. But now We believe would be better to go for a spouse visa instead of a DEFACTO,.
- Is it true the process will be less complicated for Spouse than Defacto? The forms are same the documents checklist are same too? As in the timeline with Spouse is less than Defacto? Sine I am on Student Will I straight out go to Temporary Residency or Bridging Visa like in Defacto?
- As per Working Conditions, since my GF doesn’t work in a Spouse Visa I believe they will let me do more work?
We have photos together, bank joint accounts, letters on our name, car insurances, and superannuation too.
- So I am wondering, since we won’t tell my GF’s family about the marriage at court would that create any problem? Since she is already 18+? We ll have few friends at court who will be also the witness, and in photos as well we have only photos of us together, we don’t have any with family. Would that create a problem too?
Thanks for replying guys, 

Marriage is a commitment of spending the rest of the life with a special someone. Please think twice before you do that. Dont do it just to get the visa. Applying partner visa based on spouse ground isn't gonna get you the visa quicker. The processing time is the same. No matter it's de facto or marriage the immi justifies cases in term of whether the relationship is genuine ongoing. The process for de facto and spouse is the same. The difference is the documents to support your case to prove that ur a true couple. Once you lodge ur application, u will stay on ur student visa. Once the student visa expires a bridging visa A which comes automatically with the acknowledgment letter of application will be in effect. U wait for the outcome of ur application on BVA if successful u will be granted temperpory partner visa I.e. TR. the condition of BVA is the same as ur student visa. So the working hrs allowed on student visa is gonna be the limit for BVA. U can apply to remove work restriction on BVA by claiming finicall hardship.

If u do choose to get married, it's best to be clear with family to get their acknowledgment n respect. U do need to have aus citizens who know both u n ur gf to write statuary declaration to support ur case. If u don't let family know, it will only be suspicious to immi why u are hiding the fact that ur married.

I'm not sure how ur gf not working will affect ur application. It may or may not. Although there's no requirement for AOS anymore ur sponsor is responsible to support u for two years as u have no access to social security. U may need to look into that aspect to see if ur gf can be the sponsor or u need to find someone else.

Think about what u need to do n good luck

Thanks for your reply,
I will be staying with my GF for whole life time that is the whole purpose of it, but I was concerned about the timeline as different threads here are saying different thigns regarding the difficulties between defacto and Spouse.
As I though if the Spouse was better as in quicker than We could have had a proper settled life earlier instead of waiting for an outcome from Defacto.
As in per documents what are the differences? since for both of them seemed like the checklist was pretty much the same.

For marriage ground, u need to provide marriage certicficate. For de facto, u don't need to provide official documents like that. U need to write sat dec to provide details of ur relationship together with other evidences I.e. joint bank account, utility bills things like that
