Post Advice please..

Hey guyz..need your advice on this one.

Both my partner n I are still married to our respective spouses but separated for over 12 months now.
I am living in Indonesia, Indonesian citizen, separated, have 2 kids.
He is living in Australia, Australian citizen, separated, also have 2 kids.
Can we possibly apply for a de facto visa without getting a divorce because both of us were married as Catholics and in Indonesia its practically impossible for Catholics to be divorced (only through civil court).

We seen each other approximately every 4 months and its been going on for over 12 months.
We don't have any joint accounts or purchased any major items together, but we have taken trips together and he has purchased plane tickets, accomodations, gifts etc for me and we have some snapshots obviously.

He doesn't have a permanent job per say, as he is a self employed lender, giving people lending services etc. Would this be a problem when we lodge for the de facto visa? In terms of ability to support?
Anyway, we would really like to lodge the visa as soon as possible, whenever possible is will be.

Appreciate your reply guyz..thanks a million..

You can apply for defacto visas while still married but have a look at eligibility requirements including the 0ne Year Relationship requirement for I would think on what you have so far you may find that an application would not be approved.
