Visitor visas can be for three, six or 12 months and so for instance if you have been here on just a three months visitor visa, you would have to see about getting a 12 months visa to take you over the 12 months relationship requirement for a partner visa.
That is not an automatic gimee for you would obviously need funding to support yourself and just wanting to stay to be able to apply for a partner visa is not usually an acceptable reason.
But to answer your question 12 months is a longer term visitor visa.

Hi , thanks for the info. I do have funding between myself and my partner for the extended and the partner visa. That I am not to worried about.
I was wondering the difference between a "further stay" visa and extended stay visa you were talking about.
I have been here 6 months now . First on a e visa and then on a 676 visitor visa. The further stay visa has the option of 3, 6 or 9 months. I was wondering if you were talking about a different visa then I was but I think we are talking about the same one. further stay visa 601.
Thank you for all your help and lots of info!!!

You have forms and visas mixed up for there is no visa 601 but there is the form 601 you use if you want to seek a visa to stay in Australia longer.

It's actually another visa you will be applying for.
Partner visas are cheaper offshore and which one you do will really depend on what your circumstances will be as far as meeting eligibility.

Ok . here is my update..
Recieved a call form the immi office and they asked why I was applying for a visitor visa, when on my form I stated the I wanted to continue to stay with my partner? I told her that I talked to an officer in the Brisbane office and they told me to do a further stay visa. She said she "may" grant me a 3 month visa but then I would have to go offshore to apply for partner visa. She would let me know by email if I can stay.
Question?? How do I apply for a partner visa when I have to be in a relationship with my partner for 12 months?? I have only been here 6 months and we spent 1 month together in the States before we came here. So a total of 7 months and I need 12 ?? How do others do this??? What am I missing that I should be doing???
More stress......

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you young enough and eligble for a W&HV you can have a look at under the Working Holiday heading via Visitors - Visas & Immigration .
But essentially it's a case of considering the different visas you are eligible for or her to stay in the US.

If you return to the states and do not have the time together of at least 12 months and the gal cannot go over there, it'd seem the PMV would be the only one that you will be eligible for.
Unless you do need to return to the states, you could get a visa for NZ while any Oz visa you are granted is still current, head on over there and apply for the PMV and then apply for another visitor visa to return on while you are waiting for the PMV to be processed.
You'll need to take another trip over to NZ to have the PMV granted.

A bit of stuffing about but it saves you the longer flight.

Hi , Joe and I have 1 month together in the states before we came here and 6 months here . It will be almost 8 months when I leave to go back to the states. He wants to come visit in May then again when my visa is granted to " bring me home".
So a PMV,( Prospective Marriage Visa)?? , so as long as we continue our relationship online and have proof , in 4 months I can apply for a PMV??
I dont want to have problems with another visitor visa. So I am not sure I should apply for another one.
Thanks for all your help and listening to me ramble...
