Registering in Antwerpen

Hi All, I am new to Internations and I need advice from fellow members. May be someone has gone through what I go through now.

I am trying to register with local commune in Antwerp. They gave me an appointment on 5th of August which and from what I understood it can take up to 6 months after the appointment until I am officially registered. I find this rather disturbing

I am EU citizen but my partner is not from the EU [Russia].

From what I understood she needs to wait until I am officially registered in Belgium so she can apply for residence permit.

1. Is there any fast track way to register? May be for an extra surcharge or something like that.

2. Do you know any good lawyers or expat specialist who can help me navigate through all bureaucracy?

Any advice would be very highly appreciated.
