The Registered Migration Agents can NOT submit a application that has no or very little chance of approval, unless you demand they do after being informed to you generally in writing.
Correct. However, overseas " migration agents" who are not registered can do what they like...

i think the main reason of the forum is to share complete and detailed information usefull for others, not only wrote " i know friends who had 309 without living together " and no other detailed info.
thats all....

Hello and thank you to everyone who has contributed to this discussion.
The reason why I asked the question that started this thread/discussion is because there is a curious difference of opinion between the advice given by Australian migration agents (they advise PMV 300) and migration agents in China (they advise marriage in China and then Partner Visa 309).
I was hoping to get some information from people who have been through the process themselves and can explain why a short period of living together was or was not a problem for their Visa application. What other factors may have outweighed a lack of time living together.
My good friends had serious problems with a 309 Visa application. She is Australian, he is Russian. They married without having lived together for any length of time and their application for a 309 Visa was rejected. She had to travel to Russia on numerous occasions over a period of a year to try to build up this requirement for time spent living together. Eventually the 309 was granted but there were some "compassionate" grounds that may have swayed the Visa decision makers. My friends' advice to me, based on their experience, is to go down the path of the PMV 300 Visa.
So, anyone with actual personal experience in these matters, please can you share your experiences.

I am a fan of PMV as you need less evidence. I know of someone who got married and applied at the same embassy as my husband did and got rejected as they did not live together and had no financial evidence either.

A friend of mine they got married due to religious reasons and didn't live together (well apart from about a week or so) and got approved. They are both the same religion.

I do think that religion has something to do with it.

I do know of someone else who lived together after marriage and got rejected - they had no financial or bills etc.

It all comes down to the evidence supplied and what you have in other categories.

I personally believe in the safer option.
