Thank you for your question, I am a sydney based lawyer and will do my best to assist you with your question.
If you apply for both the visitors visa may not be granted as they would fear that she may overstay that visa.
Alternatively you can apply for a partner visa when she is here on a visitors visa and she would be able to stay while they decide.
This is an alternative.
How long have you known each other?
We have known each other since 2010 but really only committed to any type of relationship this year in May. I got engaged to her on the 27th of May and arranged the marriage to be on the 24th of August as it fit in with a trip I had to Italy with work.
So in your opinion would you suggest not pursuing both visa's at the same time?
Hypothetically, what are the fees for a lawyer to oversee such a case and do all the necessary paperwork for the above to take place?
Thats all the information I require. Thank you very much. The information provided was good service!
You are very welcome and thank you for using my services.
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
