interview

I was wondering too if anyone has had any issues with their interviews??

When my partner went for his interview we were advised by our lawyer to see if they would let him record the interview or take a copy of the notes...they told him it was illegal (which it isn't). So after the interview he wrote all the questions down and i did for my phone interview too. Then our lawyer requested a copy from them which took about 30 days to come back and now that we've got it the recorded papers from the interview have varied quiet significantly to what actually happened and was asked/responded in the interview. It's scary that it's their word against ours. The 2.5 hour interview was 'documented' in one and a half pages and only a few questions (more than 20 questions were asked!)

Has anyone else had any issues similar?

Seems to be unfair when we are paying so much money to the embassy and placing so much trust in them to do the job correctly!

Really?? :/ Well we wouldn't even know because we have no idea what they actually wrote down...... didn't even cross our minds that there could be discrepancies like that...

Hi all,

Nice to meet you all. My hubby and I have lodged our 309/100 early Nov. Medicals requested and completed within a week. Police clearance submitted in late Feb. We received an email on 26/02/2015 advising us application will undergo assessment for a further 7 months. End of August we received an email stating CO was ready for decision however required further evidence on how the relationship has progresssed due to a lapse of time since lodgement. We responded to this request by submitting all documents the next day. Today we emailed our CO and was advised that the application has been referred to senior officer for final decision. Could anyone shed any light on how much longer we could be waiting? I thought a month to process those final bits and pieces would be plenty but it seems like thats not the case.

Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for your e-mail enquiry.

An initial assessment on your application has now been completed and it has
progressed to the next stage. Applications are assessed in the order of the
date of lodgement and in accordance with any relevant Ministerial
Directions. The global service standard for Partner visas is 12 months.
Service standards are measured from the date we receive a complete
application to the date of the final decision. We aim to process 75 per
cent of complete Family Stream visa applications within this timeframe
however individual processing times will vary depending on a range of
factors. Service standards are aspirational and are not a guarantee that
your application will be processed within this time frame.

Once your application has reached the top of the queue and there is
sufficient information for a decision to be made, a case officer will
proceed with a final assessment of the application. A case officer may
contact you at that time to verify that your relationship is ongoing.

Please note a decision on a Partner visa application that has been lodged
outside Australia can only be made when the applicant is outside Australia.
If you are in Australia when the application is ready to be finalised, you
will be asked to advise us of when you leave Australia for the application
to be finalised.

Regards
Client Contact Officer,

This is a generic reply. When my partner and I emailed our case officer, we CC'd the general email address and this was the response we received. I was disappointed by this, however a few hours later, we received an email from the case officer, which was written as per our application. I would encourage you to email the case officer directly, if you would like answers to regarding your application specifically.

SP0911, Seems we both at similar situation and I have been asked to provide the documents at 3rd week of August. The letter states that it is under final stage. I have submitted the documents at the end of August. It is almost a month since
