Is divorce mandatory for defacto sponsorship ??

My de-facto spouse and I have lived together in Australia for 15 months. We had all sorts
of hurdles involving the Migration Review Tribunal, but we won our case and she was
allowed to stay in Australia during the review process (long story !).

DIMA insisted she go back to her country of residence to apply for a spouse de-facto visa.
She has been sitting in the USA since October. Her application was lodged in Washington.

I am currently divorcing my first wife and DIMA have insisted the divorce be finalised
before my defacto is granted a visa. I am trying to expedite my divorce with family court
but it will take months.

Does anybody know if this is the case - that it is mandatory to be divorced before we can
finalise our visa.
