applying for partner visa

Gudday everyone..

Good to see a wonderful forum where i could post some queries. It's been 2 years since i applied for skilled migration 885 . so currently iam on a bridging visa A. As Iam on a priority 4 category, i gues i got 2 wait couple more years to get it granted. I got married last year and my spouse is an australian citizen. I have been waiting all these years hoping tht i would get my PR. But as per the new rules, its going to take

1. Would it be possible for me to apply for a partner visa being on a bridging visa A?
2. Incase if i have to go offshore and apply, would it be possible to come back to australia on my prevailing bridging visa?
3.what would happen to the previous application ,i mean 885 independant skilled visa which i logded 2 years back.

Would be really grateful if anyone could answer my queries

Having a look at Partner Visa: Onshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 820 and 801) it would seem if you are on the BVA because of your previous visa ending [ reading that as cancelled ], you can with meeting the required items you will see on the FAQ link on that page be able to put in your partner visa application.
I'd suggest as they advise on that page, you give Immi a ring and you should be able to get confirmation of a visa that ended being deemed as cancelled.

Going offshore when you have a BVA means you should get a BVB and on return you would revert to the BVA though hopefully that will not be necessary.

Your 885 application would stay in the system but if it does not come up before you get PR via a partner visa, you could just let Immi know it is not necessary.
Unfortunately, it is unlikely that you would have the fee refunded but there would be no harm in asking.
