Yes, you can register a same-sex relationship in Australia, however, as you and Maggie both said, Victoria requires 12 months residency, which is why I said only NSW would really be beneficial.

I'm afraid it's not looking like an easy solution for you, mate. You can try for a 12-month tourist visa for him and see what happens. If you end up with a shorter one or one that's 12 months but three-months stay at a time, then you'll have to reevaluate. What you could try is alternating - you spend 3 months with him in the US, he spends 3 months with you in Aus - would that be possible? Then neither country will think you're spending too much time on a tourist visa there consecutively. Just a thought.

Or you may want to talk to a good migration agent, to see if there's a better option.

It would be very expensive for us to alternate so many visits in such a short period, but worth it I guess! would staying together in each others country for 3 months at a time even count to a total of 12 months together if one of the places we stay at has both our names on the lease?

Yes, it would, as long as you make sure you're keeping evidence that you're both living there. Correspondence you receive, bills, bank statements, etc. You could also try six months and six months, depending on if the US would allow that. On a twelve-month multiple entry maximum 3-month stay tourist visa for Aus, they'd probably let you leave for a few days and re-enter on it once without giving you a hard time about it. That'd get you six months. Then if you can go to the US for six months... or even three months in the US, and they'd probably let you go back into Aus. You just need 12 months together total, with evidence. Doesn't matter which country it's in.

My Australian husband immigrated here to marry me. It was our exerience that the US imiigration was far less daunting.

However, as same sex marriage is not recognized by our Medieval Federal government, I don't know how easy it would be for you.
