Well here goes.. I am American. My finance is Australian, been together for over 3 years now. I have applied for the subclass 300 sent in all the required paperwork on the checklist, and them some..

- Letter from Marriage Celebrant

- Statutory Declaration of Paternity
For our son born on the October 2009.

- Letter from Prospective Employer

- Certified copies of Passport

- Certified copy of Drivers License

- Certified copy of Birth certificate

- Certified copies of Divorce Papers

- Certified copies of Fiance's Passport

- Certified copies of Fiance's Birth certificate

- Certified copies of Fiance's Citizenship papers

- Certified copies of Fiance's Divorce papers

- 3 x Statutory declarations (Form 888)

- Letters from business owners and the local constable on my behalf

- Photos of my Fiancé's children and myself

- 4 passport photos of myself

- 2 passport photos of my Fiancé

- Statutory Declaration from myself

- Statutory Declaration from my Fiancé

- Completed Form 40SP

- Completed Form 47SP

- Medical

- FBI check

now my CO wants

• Notarized copy of child's birth certificate. <been asking for 3 weeks if my name needs to be on it, no reply>

·Report from the police <local?? like the FBI missed something?>

• Notarized statement from your sponsor detailing how they will meet the sponsorship obligations: ie, plans for accommodation and financial support. For further information on sponsor obligations
<waiting on a explanation of this too>

• Evidence of communication <dedicated Team Speak Server>

• Evidence that you have met your fiancé in person (ie. photographs taken together etc) <we r both camera shy. but i have now submitted my ETA visa # and flight info that i used to visit/meet her in 2007

to visit the residence of my now fiancé> <no reply>

now the hard part.. i have a son here in the states. have not talked to him in almost 3 years and my CO wants this info for him?

>>• Medical Forms - for non-migrating child under the age of 18 years old

>>• Results of HIV test for all applicants over the age of 15.

<I understand if he was migrating, but i have no contact with him (his mothers choice) why is it needed?>

What do i do? anyone else having these problems?

Here we have done everything legally and have not lied or falsified anything on this documentation. But yet this CO seems to be trying to insist on these things that are near impossible to get.

The CO is just doing their job for what they are requesting is part of the health requirements and as it is legislated, like in the law, if they do not do their job, they can be held to be breaking the law.
Read Health Requirements for Visa Applicants

You also have put

to visit the residence of my now fiancé
By stating that you have intended to visit the residence of your fiance, is that to mean that you haven't actually met?

Yeah sorry let me clarify, went to Australia to meet and her family in 2007-2008 was there for just under a year, 2009 she came to the states to meet my family. And she came here for 3 months. As a result she subsequently became pregnant.

And i have sent my medical, I understood that it's that she wants a medical and HIV test for my son <non-migrating child.> I have no contact with him or his mother<not my choice> and have no way to get in contact with them. Have tried to explain this to my CO.

You probably need to ask in writing and very clearly whether there is some means available for people who do not have the ability to contact offspring for I do have a recollection of possibly what we call a statutory declaration in Australia to that effect being acceptable.
If you do not get an answer back or an unsuitable one, then you could send of an enquiry to the department separately and you will find provision for that under the Contact heading.
