Applying for Subclass 820

Hi team

I have got married overseas, registered our marriage in Pakistan and my wife is here with me in Australian on a tourist visa. We got married in March 2019. They granted her a 6-month single entry tourist visa.

The tourist visa does not expire until September but I am now thinking to arrange documents to apply for the Subclass 820 visa next month. I have been following the checklist on home affairs website. At this stage, we have the house lease, bank account and bills in joint names.

I notice on home affairs website it says: your marriage must be valid under Australian law. Would you guys know if our marriage is valid under Australian Law or should I contact marriages office here to confirm this in writing? Is there a different body I can contact to confirm in writing?

Given the huge cost of this visa, I am going to spend a fair bit of time to collate all the documents and then apply. If you have any feedback or checklist about this it would be much appreciated. Are there any changes to the visa that are in the pipeline?

Thanks for your help team

Is your marriage legally recognized in your country? Then yeah, it's probably recognized. You basically need to be legally married in your own country and also meet the requirements if you were to have been married in Australia (so you can't be siblings/related, must have been 18+, not married to someone else at time of marriage, etc). At least that's how I understand it.
