New to all this, need some help to get started

I like to ask if someone could get me started on the right path,

I would llike to bring who i hope to be my future wife to Australia or New Zealand, i doubt we would pass the spouse eligibility, or some of the other possible avenues,

I seem to have a few choices,
1/ go to her an live in china for 6 months or so, 2/ a student visa 3/ get my boss to sponsor her, "possible but mm, difficult to ask"

i am wondering also, if i can get her here on a visitor visa and i support her, perhaps 6 months then do the same for new zealand, but with nz and australia being so close politically these days, i am not sure if that is possible, so i still may get to spend 6 months in china, which i would love to do anyway, but then theres the financial cost as i won't be able to work there, so its a cost we both could do without,

There is another issue, she has a 7 year old daughter, which initially won't be a problem, but later it may be a big problem, i am not sure what my options are here,

Any advice and costs etc etc so i know what to expect would be great, i really don't even know the questions i should be asking yet, so please excuse my ignorance

Perhaps you should be looking at the Prospective Marriage Visa (subclass 300.

If you are from New Zealand and living in Australia you can sponsor someone providing you pass some requirements. The link above has the details.

You do need to have met at least once in person, you don't necessarily have to have lived together.

It is not easy for Chinese to get tourist visas to visit Australia unless they have a good job, or run a business in China or they are married and have a family there. They also have to leave quite a large deposit with their travel agent.

China can be a fun and interesting place to visit or live. Do your research before you make any big decision though, as having lived together in China may not necessarily increase your chance of success with your visa.
