Defacto visa HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello, i was just hoping someone would be able to give me some advice!!
I have been with my partner who is Australian ( i'm English) for just short of a year, we're looking for me to move to Australia. We wouldn't apply until we've been together a bit longer, maybe a few more months. However here's the problem, we got together when i was on my second year working visa i had about 6 months left although we've known each other much longer (isn't that always the way). In this time we lived together for 3 months (but it was with a friend so don't have much proof). Then i had to leave australia as my visa expired but we travelled in asia together for around 6 weeks.
Now i'm back in england and we're wanting to be together. Now i know there is the 12month living together thing and reason would say he should come here to england to build up the months living together however he has children from a previous relationship who he see daily so it isn't realistic to leave them for a long period of time (the 6weeks in asia was rather long). Would immigration take this in to consideration or is there no hope?
Thanks for your time!!

Hi there,

In my opinion, you would have very little chance of getting a de facto visa with just 3 months living together. From a DIAC viewpoint, you two are just girlfriend and boyfriend, since there are no signs that it is anything more at this stage.

If you are serious about eachother and marriage is an option, why don't you consider a prospective marriage visa? Otherwise, the only other choice is a student visa, or skilled work visa which could take a while to organise. Can your Australian partner get a WHM visa to work in the UK? Or is there any way for her to stay with you over there for the rest of the months you need to make up 12 months?

These are the only options I can think of right now. There is a way to be together, but not through a de facto visa at this stage.
