Spending time together. Tourist/De facto

Hi everyone. Just wanted to ask people of their experiences being in your committed relationships with your partner from overseas.
My girl is in the Philippines, we have been dating since Oct 2016 and visited her there twice and she has been here for 3 weeks on a tourist visa last Christmas.
We would love to go down the De facto route but not convinced we have enough time together.

We both have full time jobs and hence not being able to live together.
We was wondering what you guys have done to spend that valuable time together.
Have you just had long term tourist visas either you going to their country or them coming here to gain your De facto time together?

We are looking at 12 months tourist visa but bit sure what the chances are to get a full 12 months.

We are also looking at marriage visa , partner visa and skilled options. She has a bachelor in science and accountancy from Philippines but didn't take her final accountancy exam due to her mum bring critically sick.

Anyway just looking at all options.

Defacto and marriage visas are the same, (it's a partner visa) if you wont have the evidence as defacto then you won't if you are married. have a look at a PMV (prospective marriage visa)

She could still sit her PRC Boards, but to no advantage.
what the chances are to get a full 12 months.
She might possibly be granted a multiple entry visa - with a 3 or 6 month on each entry. 12 months straight is unlikely.
Take some professional advice before you commit to a course of action.
