If you can prove that your in a genuine relationship ie get married half way through the 12 month period I'm sure immi won't refuse, of course there is an element of risk involved but it's worth the risk so you and your partner aint apart...
This must be the worst "advice" I have heard for a long time. Saying that you're "sure" what Immigration will or will not do is quite bold.

Some concerns ( apart from the fact that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions):
  • If separate sponsorship applications are introduced your suggested strategy may backfire quite spectacularly. You can't simply ignore this possibility.

  • Leaving an application until 2 days before the expiry of a tourist visa is also an extremely risky strategy.If the application can't be lodged for any number of reasons, you'll have no time to sort out the issues and you may become unlawful.
  • Not everybody may be in a position to "risk" $ 7000.00 and several years of misery. If you're that casual about it, you may as well put the money on a horse. The odds are probably better.

Depends on the odds
Well you could also roll the dice with an RMA which will cost you more $$$$ and still not guaranteed

There are never any guarantees, but a good RMA will advise their clients on the basis of their personal circumstances and the relevant legislation in place at the time. They will also advise them about any potential pitfalls, so that the client can make an informed decision.

A reputable RMA with over a decade of experience is a much safer bet than some random guy with advice on how he did it years ago with lots of things changing in the process since then (not including possible changes in the near future).

I mean, if we're talking about gambles.

But as always, the decision is in the hands of the original poster. Advice is advice and only they can choose what to do with it.

Speaking from personal experience here... a friend put me in contact with her roommate who was planning to take the same route I did (300-820-801). She wanted to do it herself and save the money and saw we did it ourselves and were successful.

After many weeks of walking her through what we did, she finally sent me her stuff and asked me to look it over. After seeing the amount of mistakes she made and how poorly her evidence was gathered, I told her she should probably just contact an RMA (gave her a few names that I'm familiar with on this site) and she chose one.

That RMA may have very well made the difference between a failed app and a successful one. She made a lot of changes and has now been asked to leave the country for her grant. Just because the relationship was genuine didn't mean the application would be successful.

Just a thought to consider. Yes, it is very possible to get a partner visa without the help of an RMA, but your chances for error are far less by hiring the services of a professional who does this for a living.
