Spouse/partner visa help!!!!

Hello. I am a female nurse working here in the Philippines.
I have some questions about applying for a Partner visa specifically Spouse visa.

I married my husband last month Jan. 4,2011 and he went back to Australia on Jan. 27, 2011 because he had to work.. he spent 6 weeks here in the Philippines for christmas break and for our wedding. Would it be an issue if we file for a partner visa and yet we spent barely a month together as husband and wife?

Prior to getting married, we were in a long distance relationship for almost a year but we always chat, call each other and send letters to each other in that year of being apart and all of these communication evidence are carefully taken into account.

Is this enough evidence for us to prove that we have a genuine relationship even though we spent short time together after our marriage?

Can you help me on what other documents or what proof should I present aside from wedding photos, bank certificate, joint account, passport copy of our honeymoon trips, letters, phone bills and emails while we were apart?

Is is true that they make the processing time quicker for applicants who also belong to the Skilled Workers list such as myself who is also a nurse???

Help me!!!

You have created something of a dilemma for yourselves and the Immi regulations are a beast as for providing flexibility beyond a point.
What you should have done was to apply for a PMV and then come to Australia on that.

Though you are married and could apply for a spouse visa, there is every chance it could be rejected given the minimal time together and the skills of people does not come into consideration of partner visas other than if an individual CO does have it giving some weighting to their assessment, but nothing officially that I am aware of.

The best approach for you now may however be using your skills and the first step would be to see Qualifications assessment and contact a Medical occupations placement agency and see about an employer sponsorship, there being quite a few options you'll find with a google.
