Changing a fiancee visa to a de facto visa

We don't really qualify for a de facto visa even though we've been living together for a year. We can't really prove we've been living together.

Anyway, the short story is what if we do the engagement visa, and then later try to change to de facto. Neither of us wants to be married due to it limiting my legal rights back in my home country. However, we are trying to have a baby and hope to be pregnant as soon as is possible.

It's all just very frustrating!!

Are you talking of your rights in Thailand for from Dual Citizenship - Thailand Forum it would seem if you maintain Thai nationality and citizenship you will still be considered a Thai National when you want to and it will take quite a few years before you are eligible for Australian PR and then Citizenship anyway.

I'm not worried about maintaining my nationality as dual Thai/US. I don't want Aus citizenship. My issue is I own land and property. When you are married you have problems with buying and selling land, you are required your husband's signature for everything as though you were a child. I prefer not to be married and retain all my freedoms. It was only recently that Thailand outlawed men raping their wives (including those separated from them), so they have a ways to go on the other little details regarding property rights.

Let me just say, I love my partner and I want to be with him and I would like to have the ability to work part-time and have rights to be in Aus so I feel secure moving money over and buying a car, putting into a house, etc - I can't do these things on a tourist visa. But I have zero desire to be a citizen ever or to live in Aus without him. I'm very happy to be an American and a Thai and I would never trade those nationalities.
