Hi ,

I am seeking some advice on my query .
I have been in Australia since July 2016 on a 457 visa and will be returning soon to India due to my wedding which is planned in January . Since I am a Catholic mg fiancé and I will not be getting married the civil way . We would prefer nuptials in church post then we will get it registered . We wish to move here in Australia and would like to know if it's advisable to apply now and submit the marriage certificate later in January . I want to understand I'd that's possible . Also I will be taking up my then husband's name so would get all the legal formalities done only after marriage . I am aware of the other steps like PTE ,ACS etc . Just unsure about the above . Also we would be applying for 189 visa type .

You can start the process right away for PTEA and ACS

Your name change after marriage will have no adverse effect as you would have the papers for marriage and name change

You can add your fiance also as migrating with you right away even if you are not married
But beware that you will have to satisfy the CO that your relationship is genuine


Cheers

it is better to have evidence of relationship for considerable period of time before applying visa, there have been cases where marriage was recent (2-3 months old) and case officer has asked to provide further evidence of relationship, few of such cases are pending for past 6 months

check this https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa...endent-visa-(subclass-189)-document-checklist


Marriage and relationship documents
Marriage certificates or relationship registrations for you, your partner, or anyone else included in your application, even if they are not joining you in Australia. If you or anyone included in the application has been widowed, divorced or permanently separated, provide the death certificate, divorce decree absolute, or statutory declaration/separation certificate as applicable.


Genuine relationship evidence

If you are married or in a de facto relationship, evidence of a genuine and continuing relationship with your partner to the exclusion of all others. For de facto relationships this should include evidence that you have been in the relationship for at least 12 months at time of application. Evidence can include, but is not limited to, joint bank account statements, billing accounts in joint names, and other evidence of cohabitation.


meanwhile, as advised by newbienz you can start the process with english test and skill assessment, good luck

You will be issued with a Marriage certificate by the Church Priest, translate it on INR 100 bond paper in English,if its in regional language.

That's more than enough as legal proof of marriage as per marriage special act.

Because the priest or pastor who solemnize your marriage is a registered marriage registrar under special act.

That certificate is valid
