Any one of these options needs to be at "time of lodgement," not lodge the 309 visa application and then get married. If you lodged the PMV while you were engaged, then you got married before the grant of the PMV, you can switch over to the 309 (usually). However, if you applied for the 309 thinking being engaged was enough, you may want to have a closer look at the requirements to make sure you met them at the time of lodgement. Perhaps I'm wrong, and someone more knowledgeable will correct me. But I'm pretty sure that's how it works.
The Application had three options for relationship status: De Facto, Engaged or Married. According to my research, discussions with people I know and a migration agent my family consulted, you can apply for the 309 if you are engaged but need to get married within a specified timeframe after lodging the application. So we applied in late May for the 309, before the wedding in early July. We got married in New Zealand, not in Australia.
That information is not correct. If you apply for the 309 there is no need to be married at any point, many don't. Not sure where you found the information that said you did.
The only one where you need to get married is after the grant of a 300, after all that's the point of the visa.

Yours sounds like the PMV 300, the fiance visa. We did that route too, as we hadn't been together long enough for the 309.
The condition was basically: be engaged, apply for 300, get approved, enter Australia and then get married, within a certain time. After that; apply for 820, followed by 801. We did the lot, and got PR earlier this year.

Subclass 300 Prospective Marriage visa
(engaged)
This visa lets you come to Australia to marry your prospective spouse and then apply for a Partner visa.

Subclass 309 Partner (Provisional) visa
This visa lets the de facto partner or spouse of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen live in Australia temporarily.

As you mention, critically, when applying for PMV300 you shouldn't get married before the visa is approved. If you do you get transferred to the 309 I believe?

It sounds like the poster either applied for the PMV300 and got married too early, or applied for the 309 and was confused on the requirements (with the risk of having insufficient relationship history to qualify at the time of lodging).

Seems like you have a lot of good info here! My only other thought is maybe including leases or house deed if you have one. That said you have more that we probably put in (we are still waiting on approval though).

When I applied the 309/100 were on the same application. Do you mean what further documents are needed for the 100?

Hi guys, just want to ask if one can travel overseas after applying 2nd stage partner visa100 ? my wife submitted visa 100 application last month and we have submitted most of the documents. We will be leaving for 88days in November..

If yes, will this long offshore trip can leave negative effect on her application ? can we request my wife's medical to be done later if CO ask for it while we are overseas?

PS: we bought tickets months before applying 100, was misinformed that 2 years duration will start from day she entered Australia when we planned this trip.
