Partner Visa - 3 Year De facto

Hey all,

My partner and I are planning to apply onshore for our partner visa, but I have a question regarding the PR status (sorry if its a stupid one! )

By the time we apply my partner and I would have been living together for over 2 years. From what I've read once the visa application is submitted the wait time is well over a year before your application is even seriously looked at and medicals etc are requested. So my question is - If at the point my visa about to be assesed and granted we've been living together over 3 years will I be eligible for PR straight away?

I hate the thought of getting over the first hurdle then having to wait 2 years and apply all over again.

Does anyone know how this works?

Thank you!

It is an at time of lodgement requirement. So you need to be de facto or married for 3 years or 2 years with a child of the relationship at time of lodging.
