Student visa to de facto

Hi there,

I'm currently on a student visa which runs out in July 11 and will be applying for a de facto visa with my aussie boyfriend. We have been together for over a year, living together for 8 months (with his family) with one month apart when I went home for xmas and new year (UK) and we have had our relationship registered in NSW since Dec 10.

So I'm wondering, at the moment I can only work for 20 hours on my student visa. When I go onto my bridging visa will I be able to work full time or only 20 hours until the de facto one comes through(fingers crossed). A migration agent told us I would be able to work full time but what experiences have others had?

The 20 hr. limit applies when you're actually studying and if your course finished a month or whatever before the student visa expires and you apply in that period, you'll be on unlimited work when the student visa expires and that is what will apply with the bridging visa.
