Marriage after partner application

Hello all
So my partner and i applied for onshore partner visa 820 as a defacto last week and we are considering getting married next year in March or April (in australia). My question is, will this affect our application negatively or will it help to seem more genuine . we are just a little scared , but we are looking to get married in the near future anyway.
Thankyou for you help

Why would you need to make your relationship "seem more genuine"?

Getting married would give you a pretty certificate and bunch of photos as supporting evidence for your case when it comes to adding more info against the 801.

You still need to have met all the requirements at the time of application and continue to do so until such time as your 801 is granted.

The relationship is definitely genuine i just really want this work as its a $7000 fee and i have read so many horror stories of refusals . I just thought the marriage would help a bit more or make them approve of the 820 quicker
We are in a de facto now about 5 months. Thanks for reply

How did you get around the "You must have been in a de facto relationship for at least 12 months." requirement to apply for the 820. https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/801-

We registered our relationship with the government and got certificate. This should let us bypass that requirment of 12 months

Marriage makes no difference at this point and absolutely will not speed up the process. You could marry and have a kid while waiting and you'll still wait as long as the rest.

A partner visa is an at-time-of-application requirement. If you don't meet the requirements at the time you apply, you don't get the visa. Things done after the visa application date don't count as evidence towards that first stage. A lot of people don't meet the 12 month de facto requirement will apply and try and use the waiting period, but it doesn't work that way. Unless you register the relationship.

If you're already planning to marry then go ahead. Don't bother doing it for visa purposes because it won't make a difference. DIBP is aware that most people think marriage guarantees a partner visa and as such they look at the relationship as a whole, not just a marriage certificate. If you have the evidence they are looking for in terms of youe relationship, the visa will be granted even if you choose to never marry and just remain de facto.

Did you consult a Registered Migration Agent as suggested?

Your evidences seem very low for a de facto relationship application.
