A couple of questions:
Are forms 40sp and 47sp required to be uploaded if already applied online?

If coming up to 2 years married and with a child 1 year old and already applied for onshore visa a year ago, would that at least qualify for TR(820)?
Wife already on BVB but it has limits and at least with 820 approved, we can come and go for holidays and visiting family and friends overseas without needing to seek approval and apply for BVB to leave again.:(
Almost everyone who applies for an 820 qualifies for a 820 it just comes down to if they grant it or not and that depends on the evidence.

The forms are not required if you applied online as the online forms are the same.

Maybe I my question wasn't clear enough.
I mean't would there be a chance of the 820 being granted pretty soon with regards to the circumstances state in my previous post?
I realise that they are taking up to 15 to 18 months to approve the 820 but would the previous criteria I mentioned speed it up by any chance?
doesn't being married 2 or 3 years generally qualify an applicant for immediate temporary/permanent residency providing other criteria are met?

It is a time of application criteria, from what you wrote you were only married 1 year at time of application so that will not change anything unless you can prove de facto for 1 year prior and your child was born before you lodged. That is the only way you will be considered for 801 at the same time as 820.

There appears to be no criteria for speeding things up. We have people with no children granted faster than those with children. In the eyes of DIBP children doesn't prove alot, it just one piece of more evidence for them to consider.

I dont mean 801 at the same time as 820. Even if 820 is granted much sooner than 801, I was hoping that at least the 820 could be granted soon since we are NOW married 18 months and D'facto since mid 2014.

There are only 2 ways for the 801 .... 1/ meet the requirement at time of lodgement and get it the same time as the 820 or 2/ wait 2 years after you applied for the 820 to become eligible for the 801 and submit the docs and wait for the 801 ... 12 months or more generally.

It is a time of application requirement. If someone applied at 2 years 11 months with no child they would still need to wait until 2 years to submit docs for the 801 and wait for it to be processed.

Sorry I have confused things in my last message, I thought I corrected it.
I mean't chance of wife receiving approval of "820"(temporary) visa soon then can wait till usual waiting period for full PR(801).
I understand the 2 year wait for full PR 801, but is there a possibility of getting the 820 soon since applied in Nov 2016. Distance D'facto since mid 2014, married 18 months and child?
Or is it a possibility that they can still take up to 2 years to even approve the first stage (820) even though will be close to 2 years married and a baby of almost 12 months by Nov 2017?

Nobody can tell you when it will be granted and in the eyes of DIBP a child is just one piece of evidence. It is still possible with a child to wait 18 months for a decision. It is just luck of the draw really.

My partner applied onshore on the 22/10/2015.
On the 3/01/17 we were asked to provide compelling reasons to waive schedule 3.
Since then no contact at all.
It will be 20 months of waiting tomorrow!!
Is anyone else waiting this long??

Mine is 15 months only but I know a friend who got approval on the 21st month. But I think you now can ask them because you're 20 months already.

I applied for the 820 a bit over a month ago and while it feels like a relief, I have been feeling stressed by the feeling of having no status for the next year(s). But my partner always tell me that I shouldn't worry about it. We're together, I'm working, we're saving for a house deposit and we are able to plan our future together. All in all as long as we're together the rest doesn't really matter. And he keeps reminding me that worst case scenario he'll move to my home country with me if we have to. His words really helped me realise that we're lucky and that as long as we have each other, life will be good.
Our other halfs are worth it and we're lucky to be able to live together in beautiful Australia. (sorry just wanted to share a bit of positivity on this gloomy day)

Yes, you can request an update if it has been 20 months or longer. Just send an email to where you received the request from, or give them a call! :)

Hello all, this is my first time posting in this forum after being a silent reader for a few months :) thanks so much for all your posts as they have been really helpful.
I applied for my 820 in Sep 2016 (without agent) and I attached all the required documents within a few days of lodging the application, including overseas police clearance but not AFP police check as I had not been in Australia for a year at that time. I didn't hear anything until the 9th of June when I received an email requesting for Form 80, Health Check and AFP Police Check. However there is no CO information in the email, seems like I have yet to be assigned one. I quickly organised for all these, I had my medical done on the 14th (clearance provided within a couple of days) and I received my NPC through the post on the 19th and uploaded this and my form 80 on the same day. I have been checking my ImmiAccount quite frequently since then as I'm excited to finally hear something (but I also feel sorry for some of us who have had 15+month waiting time..), however in my ImmiAccount, the application status is still 'received', there has been no change at all in the status since I applied. Is it normal to have no status change even though we have been asked for further documents? Looking forward to any advice from you guys, and I wish good news to all of us.

Yeah, I got the same email around the same time, asking for a whole bunch of things in a very generic way. I figure it was an automatic thing.

I applied a month after you. Here's hoping that in the new financial year we get some love from the Department.

Was there any change in your ImmiAccount status? Mine hasn't changed at all, still says 'received'. Really hope we get some love from the Department in the new financial year :)

I wouldn't pay too much attention to the status on the immiaccount. There have been people have checked 1.5 hours before their grant and it was still in received status.
