Police check

My Thai wife is in aus on a tourist visa. We want to apply for a spouse visa.
The police check could be a problem to get. She has worked in Cambodia for 2 years for a Thai company. She declared the 2 years on her tourist visa application.
What do we do? Send her to Cambodia for a police check?
Is there any alternatives?
Will immigration accept a statutory declaration in leiu of a police check?

You need to get police checks and if you check the information given for Penal Clearance Certificates, you will find the Cambodian details - http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/char...cter-penal.pdf
You should also check her tourist visa to see if it has a No Further Stay condition for if so, a visa application from within Australia is not possible.

The visa letter has No Further Stay on it but it says after that, " This means in MOST CASES you cannot obtain a further visa to extend your stay in Australia."
How is most cases defined?
Does it mean that maybe a spouse visa can be applied for?
Another question.
If an application is lodged without a police check, will it be accepted? and then we will be told to get a police check.?
Will she get a bridging visa to stay in aus?
Will she be allowed to travel to cambodia to get the police check?

Most cases means just about all and you might have a situation where someone was physically unable to leave Australia owing to hospitalisation and an application for waiver - Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 52b. Waiving Visa Condition 8503 - "No Further Stay" could see a temporary bridging visa applied.
So most unlikely in normal circumstances for her to be able to get a waiver and no chance of applying for a partner visa.
Some applications can be lodged without a police check with one to be supplied when requested, usually within 28 days but a bit irrelevant to her application onshore.
It would seem she has to leave Australia and then she can apply offshore.
She could apply for another tourist visa to return whilst a partner visa was being processed, but no guarantee of a grant and if she was here and a partner visa was to be granted, she would need to leave again to allow it to be granted, a trip across to NZ sufficing.
