Mark, what nationality is your partner?
I assume she is here atm?
Does her visa have 8503 (no further stay) on it?
Are you intending to apply for an onshore or offshore visa for her?
How long have you known each other for and how long actually together?
Even though soon to be married, you will still need to prove the relationship is genuine.

You can't apply that quickly - you can prepare it of course but you can't lodge it until you have applied for your official marriage certificate from the relevant office of the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. This takes several weeks for the celebrant/minister to lodge the paperwork and then you apply to have a copy of it sent to you. Then you need to get a certified copy done of that certificate and include it in your application. The certificate they give you the day you marry is just a commemorative one, it has no legal significance.

You also asked earlier if you will need an AOS and who can help you get one. Based on you having little income and same for her then it is pretty likely you will get asked for one. You can ask up to 3 people to be joint applicants - and you don't have to be one of them - friends, family etc can do this if they accept the responsibility.

"You can't apply that quickly"
I disagree, there is a difference betwen an invalid application and an incomplete one.
Mine will be submitted without the Police Clearance Certificate, we have approx 6 months to obtain it as the applications are not processed for approx 6 months. Remember that the standard processing times for Offshore, High Risk applications is 10 months (as per the Diac website).
The marriage certificate is more than able to be appended to the application well before it will be processed, even if it is some 4 weeks away.

Lodge your appliaction asap so that the 10 months is underway asap.

she is a filipino and she is currently in the philipines.
Im not sure yet is im going to tell her to apply for an offshore or onshore visa.
we have been together for 7 years. Im only 21 and she is 22

how do we prove that our relationship is genuine??

sorry for a lot of questions, i just dont really have any information about this,

thanks

I believe that it is unlikely that she would get a visa here without "no further stay" on it being from that part of the world. (My wife is Thai and the same applies). So you would need to apply for an Offshore visa.

You have been in a relationship since you were 14 years old? I cant see the realationship being "officially" recognised at that point in time but still, even from age 18 you would have been in the relationship for 3 years. How much time have you actually spent together? That is significant in the scheme of things.

Do you have phone records detailing calls to her and vice versa?

sorry but you are wrong, you cannot apply without a valid and legal marriage certificate because it is the sole ground you are applying for the visa! ie. proving a legal marriage. By the sounds of things mark355 still has much reading to do to fully understand the process - and it is highly unlikely I am guessing that his application is done and ready to lodge. Firstly mark355 do this:
- read the information booklet on applying for partner visas because it will answer many of the questions you are asking: http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/booklets/1127.pdf
- then download the 40sp and 47sp forms and read them, they also contain valuable information and checklists that you will need to organise your application

Then start gathering the information they ask for and it is long and complicated and the more complete your application is the quicker it can be processed. The only things you can leave out (and immi suggests this too) is wait for the medicals and police checks to be asked for before doing them. Your first task is proving a genuine and ongoing relationship, read the booklet and you will find out how to do this.

Kandk, do you understand that the applications are not even given file numbers for weeks? As per many of the posts in the sticky - Visa timelines

"The only things you can leave out (and immi suggests this too) is wait for the medicals and police checks to be asked for before doing them."

It is not that you can wait to do the medicals, You must not do the medicals until instructed to do so. (Under the new EHealth rules.)

My offshore partner app is to be lodged on Tuesday without any relationship statements or stat Decs. It is a valid application (but not a complete application).
My migration agent is not a fool. There is plenty of time to append these items. 10 months is a long time.

We spent together everyday before I came here in australia, I've been here for 2 years and im a permanent resident. I just went back ther for 1 week to get married with her.

I doont have phone records cuz we are using prepaid phones there.

If we get a bank account with our names on it, is that a strong proof ??

Im currently reading the booklet now.. Thanks KandK

If she did her police check and medical before they ask for it and it is already attached in the application, is there gonna be a problem??
