You can't register your relationship because you are still married.

You just have to hope that he doesn't get stopped by immigration re-entering Australia because of all the visits in a short period.

12 months is 12 months so if you have lived together for 12 months and 1 day you have met the criteria. The key is to be able to show that to immigration on paper ie. Joint bank account, joint bills, name on lease, mail at same address etc.
Spot on. I 100% agree with this.

Yep, you were de facto the second you started living together. You're just required to have been de facto for 12 months by DIBP, as Dinkum said. You may want to see if you can amend that return to say de facto. Not sure if that's possible.

ATO will only amend a return if it will affect the income or deductions.
