We sought advice from an immigration lawyer in June 2013 after we had 6 months living together and were advised that we would most likely face rejection as the time before living together is considered to be dating by DIBP. My solution was to study for another 6 months to ensure we had the full 12 months living together (as well as relationship registration). Can your partner come and study in Australia for a while? Then you can be sure of an application which ticks all the boxes as honestly I don't think you have sufficient evidence for an onshore defacto at this stage. Good luck. I know how hard this process is for all parties involved.
I was thinking about what you said here Valentine1981, and studying seems like a great idea. I make plenty enough money to support us while we both live together. Our main problem was that i didn't want her to get bored during the day while I'm off at work. She is a qualified hairdresser and aesthetician (beautician) but she has finished all her studies, is there a way that she can get a visa to study here. she doesn't have to work. just something for her to do with her days and also a great opportunity to go back and learn some more.

Ok so if she wants to study then what you have to find is an education provider that is CRICOS registered. When you have selected the course you want to do,you usually pay a deposit and they issue you with a CoE (confirmation of enrolment)...you will then need to arrange Overseas Student Health Cover (which I did with Medibank Private) and once you have the payment confirmation for those then you can lodge a student visa application (generally 2 week turnaround although my last student visa was approved within 24 hours). With this visa she will be allowed to legally work 40hours/fortnight so on the days she is not at school she can work on a part time basis.
I will be honest,having travelled the path more times than I would have liked to..that studying in Australia isn't the cheap option, school feels usually hover between $1800-$2000 per 10 week term. However it looks like it is going to be the best way for you to ensure that when you apply that DIBP have the 12 months of living together that they ask for (although the jury is still out on the absolutely specifics of how they define de facto....I'm still confused!!)

Oh awesome, ok thanks for the information. She has some contacts in her industry here that might be able to sort her out with something to study while we wait. Thankyou
