OK so this is our situation. I met my partner gaming and we've been talking consistently over ps4 chat in this time and voice chat for over a year. We don't have much in terms as evidence as it stands. We met for 3 wks in April this year. He proposed and we are engaged and very much in love.
Ive applied for a 2 year college course as this seems an easier way for us to be together whilst I can work to contribute toward living costs part time as well as gather evidence for immigration.
We are very intent on beginning a family together as this is a goal of ours if all still goes swimmingly after a year of living together I'm Edging on my mid 30s I fear time is running out for me and my partner to go through the lengthy immigration process to begin a family together.. If I was to apply for a 2 year student visa which I'm also looking forward to a change of career could I submit my onshore de facto after a year of study or would I have to wait for my student visa to run out? Being South Australian we can register our relationship which takes off a year off the 2 year period for the 2nd part of the defacto relationship is this correct? Potentially taking the end goal of residency 4 years to complete if successful? It's all very over whelming hence coming to this forum. I don't digest lengthy information too well.
