Crazy online communication
Yeah there was a lot of warring last night. A bunch of them ganged up on the guy who defended you and I guess he got banned. Keyboard warriors
Oh well, enjoy your move to Oz.

Our permanent move is not in till the next year, but still thank you

Keyboard warrior... love this expression

I feel sorry for him. But also think sometimes rudeness can be just ignored. Maybe person had a bad day...
and I am not offended that person says my English grammar is bad... Iím working on it, but hey, I only learned it as an adult.., so yeah, itís far from perfect. Iíd be offended if he said my Russian is bad because itís not true

I'm so happy to share the news that my partner visa was granted this morning. We applied in the UK, it was processed through the Berlin Embassy and took 4.5 months. We've gone straight to the 100 permanent visa, which is wonderful.

A few things to mention - we had a request for more information in December, which for some reason triggered the sponsor side of the application changing to 'Approved'. This ment the 'Attach document' button disappeared! I had used up my 60 document allocation, so the ability to attach extra information was taken awaay from us. Just to reassure anyone reading if this happens to you, after contacting the Europe Service Centre, we managed to get the email of the immigration office in Berlin and our case officer emailed directly back. We were then able to attach documents to email directly to the case officer.

We also made a few very silly human errors on our application with conflicting information about dates, as well as stating one date which was completely incorrect. We were SO worried we had ruined our chances, but it was nothing that an email to our case officer with an explanation and sincere apologies didn't fix.

Good luck to everyone waiting to hear. I can safely say the entire experience has been the most intense and stressful of my life (through my own fault) and I'm ecstatic it's all over with

Anyone else waiting for more than 7 months? We are approaching 7 months and havenít heard a thing! We donít understand why this is? We called last week to see if we could find out anything and all they could tell us is that we have a Case officer and thatís itís processing, no other information.
Married 6 years with child, plenty of evidence submitted and police checks and medical done in advance.
Appreciate hearing from anyone else waiting for as long as we have.
