Case Officer - Perspective Marriage Visa

Hello everyone,
I applied for a Perspective Marriage Visa (subclass 300) visa from the USA about 2 months ago in April and haven't gotten a response yet. I know it can take months to get a reply but I was wondering if anyone could tell me how long it took to get assigned a case officer after applying.
As for the application itself, it is complete and both state and federal police checks were included along with all of our supporting evidence which was quite extensive. The only thing not included with the application is my medical checks.
Any other bits of general information about the visa is welcome!
Thank you!

From what I have seen on the DC thread it takes around 5 months to get assigned a case officer.

Awesome, thank you so much for the quick response Mish! Is there anything we can do to speed it up such as submitting the medical exams? The answer to that question is probably no but I'm hopeful for just about anything xD

Not likely. Most of it has to due with the fact that there are alot of applicants and they have a specific number of visa's they grant - I believe some embassies are even specific down to the month.

Thanks again Mish, you've been a big help At least I'm almost half way there lol oh and just one last thing if you have the time, I read on one thread that things such as processing times tend to slow down at the embassies around June because of budget restrictions and pick up again after June. Is that true or just a complete rumor?

Some people have been told by case officers that they have reached the quota for the year. It does not seem to affect all though.

We applied at the end of December and first heard from a CO at the beginning of May. So 5 months for us to hear from them.

We have since submitted everything they required (police and FBI checks and medicals) and now we are just sitting tight and waiting. We are hoping to hear something soon!

Hi Canegirl,

I can't wait to hear back from a case officer, it will be the most exciting day!

Did you get any word on how long it would take to get everything finalized?
