WHV -> 820 Onshore Defacto

Hi, wonder if you can offer advice / share experiences of getting from a Working Holiday to Onshore Defacto visa?

The situation is that the couple met online. When they decided to live together the non-Aussie partner entered Australia on a WHV and they immediately started living together. This was December 5th last year.

They looked at registering their relationship with the state of Victoria, but this isn't possible from a WHV. So the current plan is to submit their application for 820 Onshore Defacto in the dying days of the WHV.

How anal are DIAC about the twelve month rule? In that the WHV expires on a Sunday, so to submit the application they either have to do it two days before they've been living together for a year, or a day after the WHV has expired? DIAC suggested (over the telephone in their normal helpful manner) the only way around this was to apply offshore.

Would appreciate all thoughts and comments!

Immigration regulations are set by legislation and thus law.
http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...t-partner.html is all about what needs to happen and if people get themselves organised, relationship registration, even in Victoria is possible.
There's a sticky thread on that too near the top of the section.
