Questions -- Long term De Facto relationship (not married)

Hi,

I'm not sure how many people in this forum share the same experience with me and have applied for Partner visa (820). Any info/comments are much appreciated.

I'm from china and currently studying in Australia and currently in a relationship with an Australian girl since July 2012 (we started living together since 31st Jan 2013). We are thinking of lodging our application asap as im graduating in July this year.

I've looked at the doc was posted by immi saying that couples who have been together for more than 3 years might be able to skip the Temporary stage (which is usually 2 years). and since im graduating soon i really hope im able to obtain it without going through the temp stage (almost every job i tried to apply requires permanent residency).

so my questions are: Does it actually happen as it stated? Anyone could kindly share their experience?

Thank you all

As long as you provide the evidence showing you lived together since Jan 2013 you should get PR straight away. If you don't just tell them and they will change it if you meet the requirements. Afterall, DIBP are human and do make mistakes every so often.

Just so you know the processing time is 12 to 15 months so you will need to wait awhile for it to be approved.

Thanks Mish! Appreciate your reply.

We are not particularly worry about the evidence since we have all the leases saved.

I'm just worried about the timing cuz I was hoping to start looking for employment before or as soon as I graduated but it doesn't seem going to happen any time soon.
