Good on you mate , there are some people not as responsible as you are.
Simply when you apply for immigration visas , a lot of cross referencing takes place.

please have a look at other posts of mine. my fiancée is from Belarus and there is a whole lot of issues with partner visa either as prospective marriage visa (PMV subclass 300) or spouse visa.
Since she is in Russia, any tourist visa is very very likely to come with condition 8503. which means while she is in Australia, she cannot apply for any other visa.
There is nothing wrong in applying for tourist visa for 6 months and stating that she is visiting you and you two go together way back. Only thing is that the visa officer should be convinced that she will certainly go back after her time with you. Tourist visa can be applied online in minutes (provided you have all the certified copies scanned ready). Online visas are supposed to be processed in Australia (Hobart). But my fiancée got a call from Moscow after applying and was interviewed for about an hour on various aspects of the visa (we weren't engaged then). She too has a good travel history and I have described the situation elsewhere in this forum.
We are going back to Belarus and applying for PMV then comeing back to Australia and wait for the processing (since she already has the tourist visa). You can do that in Thailand as well (PMV can be applied anywhere except Australia) but has to be mailed to Moscow unless she has residency in the country (Thailand in your case).
Applying for PMV and then applying for tourist visa is another option and many have done that successfully. You can also register your relationship in NSW while she is here in Australia. That gives another evidence of your genuine relationship. (but not enough)
*IF* you are lucky and she gets a tourist visa without further stay condition (condition 8503) then she can come to Australia and you can apply for partner visa (not PMV) and she will get bridging visa, and can wait in Australia while the application is processed. But Partner visas(other than PMV) has a bigger burden of proof on the applicant. Which translates to more paperwork and evidence.
I can share my experience as we go through ours since Belarussian and Russians apply for visa to the same office in Moscow. good luck
Thank you so much!
I have made a visa for her before. And she came to stay to Sydney for a few weeks. I understand, that if going go with 300 PMV, than She would apply for it from Russian and in a months apply for another visa (Tourist visitor Visa) I'm assuming thats' legal, so While we waiting on her 300 Visa she will be in Australia, then she briefly can return to Russia take the grant.

Well not me! I'm on good terms with my ex. And my girlfriend is happy that I have a kid.

I hope you are correct and it would not take too long , we are already at 15 month with no visa.

ndalian - Adventuress (as usual) brings up a really good point - you are, in fact, an Australian Permanent Resident, right? And you've been living in Australia for at least two years?

Turns Out it is true!
I can not apply for VMP after all ((((

Well I decided to make a Visitor visa like I did last time, but this time for longer. As long as we can take (Possibly 6 - 9month time) or maybe 4 month and then another 3 - 4 month time or something like that, so I can make AU residency here, then apply for another Marriage VISA, not PMV, but the one On shore, by that time there would be enough evidence for that one. Hopefully! Also a good idea for me would be to get an immigration agent, so I get everything right.

Can anyone suggest if this is a goo path... Taking on a Visitor Visa for my GF then applying for my residency and then extending the Visa and then when I get Residency applying for a Marriage visa?

Are you sure that you'll get Australian residency in 9 months?
