Have you consider PMV or 309?

A 309 is going to require the same evidence as an 820.

Annika, you're right in that there's no requirement to live together. But there is a requirement to show evidence of having joint finances - and your evidence on that front is just really, really skimpy. You can apply - but I just don't know what kind of chances you'd have. And I think immigration is going to ask the same question - why weren't you previously living together, as you don't have to have a lease to have lived together. I've seen multiple migration agents on these boards state that they always recommend married couples live together and collect joint financial evidence for a few months before applying. I'd suggest contacting a MARA-registered migration agent -- Mark Northam on this forum is a good one -- and just making sure you have a chance.

Thank you!
My thoughts on it were to explain in the stat dec why we're not living together and that as soon as i get my brigding visa we will look for a place and then contact immigration to change our addresses, submit more evidence of joint finances etc.
I haven't come across a case like ours before, we've got some pretty unique circumstances with him beeing chronically ill and unable to work. He can't for instance prove that he can support me financially for the two years following a visa grant, his parents will have to sign papers to say that the'll take financial responsibility.
I know that in an ideal world our application should have more evidence of shared financial responsibilities, but isn't the point of having all the evidence on the checklist to prove that you're in a loving and continous relationship exclusive to all others? We've got text msgs from when we first met in February, photos of us in different places, skype conversations, email correspondance between him and his mum talking about our relationship, stat decs from two friends, his mum and his disability agent, papers from his doctors about his condition.
I really appreciate your reply and i don't mean to debate, i obviously don't know what's going to happen hence all these questions.
The guy who started this thread seemed to be in a similiar situation of not living with his fiancee, getting martied just before the his visa was up, being from Sweden which is a low risk country etc. I wonder if his visa was approved because that would be a pretty good indication of what our chances are.

Ps. We did go to an immigration lawyer, he recommended us getting married (i originally wanted to go for the fiancee visa, so that my family and friends would have a chance to come over, and save up more money for a big and proper wedding, but the lawyer said that 1, i have to apply from outside Oz, 2, i may or may not be able to reenter on a visitors visa, 3, i'd have no work rights on my visa hence wouldn't be able to support myself while visiting). Lawyer knew we weren't living together and still recommended the 820 visa.

The lawyer was right in everything he said about the 300, but the requirements are much less stringent for that visa. You don't have to have joint finances at all for the fiance visa.

Your case isn't as unusual as you think - we've had multiple sponsors on this forum who are on disability pensions. In all cases, though, they lived with their spouses or de facto partners and had joint finances to demonstrate. His being on disability won't stop him from sponsoring. You will need to be able to show how you'll support yourselves though (if you have stat decs from family willing to support you guys if necessary, that would be helpful. You should also provide any payslips or tax assessments you have to prove your income earning potential.
