As for evidence of relationship, we included in our attachments:

- all text messages between us from 2013- now
- all emails between us from 2013-now
- seperate albums of photos together over the years, including wedding, holiday, daily life/taken by others.
- wedding cards/mail addressed to both of us
-joint bank account that shows the same home address
-we used an app for expenses/money management so were able to export spreadsheets of shared costs over the last few years

Sharing household duties:

-two seperate statements on our everyday life together.

We're pretty happy, just still in shock it was so quick! Will let you all know how it goes after our chat next week.
Will be sure to update our list on the day you get the final approval

There is a legal precedent that covers this
(QUOTE=ottawasydneycouple;1820066]BIG NEWS

Guys, we got a call from our case officer this afternoon (23/2/18). We are 'approved in principle' pending a re-upload of our marriage certificate. We had a long chat with our CO, she told my wife (applicant) she can enter Australia before her RCMP check expires, which is December this year. She's coming in April for a family holiday, so her 309 visa will start then.

So - that was just shy of 2 months since we submitted our application- what the hell is going on?!

We're more shocked than happy, considering how much we were bracing ourselves for a long wait, and the fact there are people here much further in the cue than us. We have no idea why we were processed so quickly, but we are speaking to the CO again on Monday and will ask on behalf of the board.

Finally, the CO has informed us that we aren't eligible for the 100 visa from day one - despite being together for over 3 years and married for two. According to the CO, you have to be legally married for 3 years to qualify. This is in contradiction to the language on the home affairs website, which clearly states you need to be in a 'long term relationship' for three years, not married or otherwise. We framed our application around this language in the hopes of being 100 visa eligible from day one.

We will be raising this issue on Monday, as we feel the language on the website is unclear (or straight up wrong) and we're hoping our CO has made a mistake.

I'll keep everyone posted with how we go next week, apparently after we re-upload our one document we're good to go.

I'm available for any application questions to further support you this group. Quick recap - we pre-loaded everything and did our medicals within 2 weeks of submitting our initial app on IMMI.[/QUOTE]

We just received this.

"All health examinations required for the specified visa subclass have been finalised. Processing of this person's visa application can now continue."

Not sure if that's anything more than status quo, but it's nice to see something.

Nice to see movement. Was that emailed to you or was it just listed in your immi account?

Question for the group, do you always get emailed from the DIPB with regards to their requests for more info. The reason I ask is that I've noticed a section within my immi account that says "view health assessment". I don't recall seeing it there before (maybe I missed it). Is this a request for me to get my medicals done or is it just standard practice? I never received an email or anything like that.

Yes itís been there the whole time.
You can go anytime but remember it expires after a year from completion. We went almost 7 months in but others have done it from the word go... personal preference is all imo.

I did mine about a week after we had submitted all our documents. It took about 4 business days for it to be completed and uploaded to immi.

We might have to do it and our police checks again, but we knew the risk, figured it to be worth it.

Like CBR2011 said, it's always been there. There is a step you have to go through to consent to the medical. As I said, we chose to do it up front, knowing full well we could go the whole year without any movement on our file and have to redo it.
