My CO is KM. In 5 months Iīve heard nothing.
3 weeks ago I sent him a very polite and nice email asking if thereīs any chance my visa could be granted till my partners 50th birthday in late june.No response at all! I donīt care about their workload,itīs just arrogant!
I ran a business before and if I had treated my clients like this they wouldīve dropped me so fast...
I guess case officers enjoy having our fate in their hands because a short note in 5 months isnīt too much to ask in my opinion.
Trying to remain positive but the situation Iīm in living with my parents makes it very hard at times.

yes you are right and email is made and send within minutes how hard can it be to keep people updated on their application.
Nothing for 5 months? thats crazy.
I really cant complain after reading that..

It must be hard having to live with your parents and your life on hold. because thats how it is basically.

Marjan,feel free to complain all you want. Iīm not bothered at all.
I feel sad and ticked off for all of us waiting in limbo with no word from our coīs.
Yea I knew Iīd have my life on hold for a while but also that living with my mum (and dad) would sometimes be a nightmare.
Me and mum just clash,always have and probably always will.
Itīs history repeating itself. Iīve noticed several others here on the forum have similar situations with their mothers.Very sad...
God knows Iīve tried hard but everything I do is wrong anyway so it doesnīt matter.
My familysituation is a reason why Iīm the one moving and not my partner.
Heīs very close to his parents and have sons who are starting families too.
Heīs got a beautiful little granddaughter too Heīll never leave Oz and Iīd never even ask that of him.
My mother in law actually just got a facebook account so we can talk regularly now..lol
Sheīs more of a mother to me than my own,and also a very dear friend I can trust
I really hope your livingsituation is different than mine...This waiting game is hard enough as it is but we have to stay positive about the outcome and I know if me and my partner will be allowed to be together and make a life together it will all be worth it
I hope things get moving in Berlin...itīs about time,donīt you think?

(Sorry got a bit off topic there... )

Oh AJ67 thats sounds like a very difficult situation.
I cant imagine what that must be like. I cant say my relationship with my mother is the same..we get along pretty well - ok we do have our moments and one of us just walks away to cool down.

Your partner sounds like a wonderfull man and his family It's good to have a good relationship with you mother in law. I do too speak with her on fb ans my partner's sisters.

My livingsituation is completey different, i'm renting a house and living with my kids the reason why we are going there is because my partner has a good job and a nice house and the kids and i have falling in love with australia. And i really need a new fresh start.. so the choice was easy. but this waiting game is terrible, what makes me very sad is that i dont know when i will see my partner again and live from day to day .. skype to skype. I know i'm not the only one in this situation but sometimes i feel like the loniest person in the world..

Ah well .. enough sadness.. Deep breath and go on .

Lets hope Berlin makes us all very happy soon..

For them we are just numbers. They don't care and they have to be emotionally detached from our personal stories. Luckily I'm having a very good time with my family and friends, my relationship with my parents has improved dramatically, we know that the time left is not much (they are old), it's like living with a clock ticking the countdown... It's the first time I appreciate my country, my town, my life here. I love everything I have to leave, even the things that disgusted me before.
This is a very big effort, and as I am not so young it's very hard.
I know it's worth it, I love my husband, but life is impredictable.
So, I don't mind waiting, after all. I have suffered a lot and I know that I have to enjoy every second that is given to me, because it won't come back. I take this period of time as a last gift given me to stay with the people I care most.
So everyone, I know it's hard, but let's try to find the positive side of this situation.

Marjan,I tried to leave a comment earlier today but my service was playing up.
Iīm glad to hear your situation is different from mine
I know what you mean about feeling lonely...some days are easier than other - this was not one of them.. Tomorrow will probably be better
Donīt hesitate to send me a message if you feel like it.
Iīm sure weīll feel better after we had a good whinge...

1: don't stop living your life and put everything on hold just because you have handed in the application.
2: Have a plan B in case your application get rejected. what happens if your visa application gets rejected, where do you and your partner go from there?

Good question as my partner wonīt move to Sweden
I prefer to think positive and cross that bridge when/if we come to it.
My partner is a positive thinker and wonīt discuss a backup plan,but sure Iīm thinking a lot about what to do if we get rejected.
Itīs been 5 months without a word from my co,and 7 months since I left my partner...
To be honest I have enough negativity surrounding me living at my parents place so I really need to think positive or I wonīt cope.
I have nowhere else to go as itīs not that easy to find a place to live without steady income.
( I came back to Sweden to apply for a 309 after spending 12 months with my partner in Oz)
Therefor my thoughts are on being reunited with my partner,catch up with his family and start planning our wedding
That keeps both of us going <3

When and where did you apply,Cyco? Great to see a fellow swede here
What visa did you apply for? Best of luck to you!

We do have a plan B. My partner will come to holland for atleast a year if our application is refused. Get married here before he has to go back again and try for a onshore partner visa. Well thats our plan anyway.

havent stopped living my life, I'm still doing what i always have done.. But you cant plan into the future.. Thats the biggest issue because you dont know what is going to happen.Can only live in the present.

But anyways..

Welcome to this Thread! Just like AJ asked- when and what visa did you apply for and which embassy?

Good luck
