Just noticed you got CK as your CO aswell.. Got the same frustrations with her?
When did you do your medicals? how long did it take for your to hear anything about that? It's been almost 7 weeks since i've done them and nothing yet.

My application might take a bit longer as i want to take my two kids with me.

Groetjes!

K.M. is my CO but I havenīt heard anything from him.
Iīm hoping to be in Oz for my partners fiftieth birthday in late june.
Oh my if its the same co as I had KM and the same as Mel had then im afraid you've got allot of praying to do, I waited months and months and he still refused to grant me the visa , in the end I made some very strong complaints through my agency, they agreed that my CO wasn't the most easiest in coming forward with information and he certainly wasnt the sort of person to hurry with an application, I was very lucky as in the end I had the CO changed and within a few days I had my visa granted, my CO was Mc B. he was very quick and efficient and very understanding.
Im telling you this because don't think this CO is the most easiest person because from what we understood he is quite a stickler for dragging things to the very last day. Don't be disheartened if you hear nothing from him its normal.

Hi!
I haven't really had a problem with CK. I did my medicals in Australia and about two weeks after I send the results I received a confirmation.
I did send her an email asking if there was a possibility that they could grant 100 visa (Partner and I have been together for 4,5 years) But didn't get a response to that at all.

Last email I received was on 14th of Jan saying:
There are no more documents required for processing of your application to continue and I currently have all the information I need.

I can advise that assessment of your relationship has been completed and that you and your sponsor meet the core criteria for the subclass you have applied for.

I will contact you again when I need more information or when your application is ready to finalise.


After that its been quiet..

Maybe you could give her a call? Have you tried that?

Been a while since you last heard something.

But i guess you're close, Hope you'll get an answer soon

I have tried calling her but all i'm getting is her voicemail. I'll just try to be more patient.

Phil and i are together since 2008 couldnt go for the partner visa do to the 12 month rule. We have spend 34 weeks together over de past 4.5 years and many many hours on skype.

Hi Louise!
Yes,I think itīs the same CO so Iīm prepared but not too worried about it.
Iīve been reading heaps on the forum and also what people have said about K.M.
I really have no reason to bother him unless he keeps me waiting longer than the stated timeline.
I accept the situation as it is and try to stay positive. But yea,if it comes to a phone interview Iīll be super stressed,thatīs for sure!!
My plan is to drop him an e-mail in the beginning of may(a few weeks before I hit 5 months)and ask how things are going and if thereīs a chance I can be with my partner on his fiftieth birthday 20 june. Wish I could be there on our first grandchilds first birthday on 1 june put I donīt want to push things.But...you never know!!
If it wasnīt for living with my parents this wouldnīt be so hard.
Iīm chatting with my partner for hours every night and morning and weīre bonding closer by the minute.
I think this is doing us good in that way.When I get back weīll set a wedding date and plan the big day
Having my application rejected just isnīt in the picture.*fingers crossed,knock on wood* and all that
Are you still in Malta or have you arrived in Oz yet? Hope youīll be very happy in Oz.Starting over is wonderful,donīt ya think? xxx
