desperate!!!

Please can someone help?
I am Australian and my partner is in the UK. We have been together for almost 2 years and the distance apart is killing us We were wanting to apply for the PMV but he is going through a lengthy divorce and it looks like it will still be sometime before he will be free to marry and apply for the PMV.
My question is this:
Is there ANY OTHER WAY we can be together sooner? He doesn't qualify for a working visa as he is 33 years old and he also doesn't qualify for a skilled working visa. Please please please, is there anyone who knows or can give me some info on how to get him here sooner. We need to be together... it is so hard being apart and not being able to start our lives together. It's like we're in limbo and can't move forward until we are

Thanks

You can apply for a PMV whilst still married but it just means you'll run the risk of the divorce not coming through though by the time he/you get the application ready, submitted and it gets considered, you could be looking at six months to time of grant and then nine months from there for marriage and getting the subsequent partner visa submitted.

A holiday visa will not have any working entitlement and other than that, a student visa would allow 20 hrs./week work but he would be looking at expensive fees.
