Question WHV to 820 Marriage Visa

Hey everyone,
Iv been searching on this forum for similar cases however I would really appreciate some advice.
I met my gf in Germany and we spent time there and here in aus and back there again and have been apart for a few months now. We planned in our last trip that she will move to Melbourne after her uni is finished with a WHV so we can spend more time together and plan something (were looking at the de facto Visa path in Melb or something in Germany).
Turns out Im incredibly in love and miss her so much that I want to marry her!

Shes been preparing to come down all this time and has finished up alot of things to move soon (sold furniture, getting her dog ready to send down, gave notice for her apartment etc) on the WHV. In the best case Id love to apply for a PMV now so she can come her with all her rights and without any problems, but she will have to find a home and sit around waiting for approval.

Would it be possible to continue along the WHV path and get married in Aus and apply for a the subclass 820 Visa? I understand its possible to have the no further stay condition... Is this much of a risk with a WHV? Would these circumstances be enough to waiver the the "no futher stay"?

It break our hearts if we have to leave each other again.
The embassy in Germany said 5-10 months for a PMV and they mentioned it will most likely be that time period as well

Any advice or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

I would be very surprised if a NFS condition would be on a WHV for there is provision for people to qualify for a second WHV and it is also an eligible visa in reference to being able to apply for skilled visas.
In fact I would be 100% certain it'll not be.

So it should not be a problem re applying for a partner visa.
Seeing as you're in Melbourne, if you want more time together before marriage you may want to consider a relationship registration with the Vic. registry for Births Deaths and Marriages [ a defacto marriage certificate ] and that means the 12 months relationship requirement is waived, the same as when being married.

You still need to show evidence of a relationship whether you are married or not but it seems you'll be OK on that score so best wishes for the future.
