So now I just have to wait until we can talk again (he's busy at work and I'm going to bed at the moment) so we can work out the migration agent we're going to go with for this process, start talking about what else we still need to be getting together (I've done a lot of it already) etc. And time to ask our friends/family for their statements!
That is awesome news CollegeGirl

Hardly... I still have LOT to learn! But at least I have this wonderful resource of a forum I can come to when I have questions.

I got the updated 47SP done tonight... that was fun! *eyes crossing* I'll tackle the 40SP tomorrow. I really wish they'd let you SAVE completed PDFs. Frustrating to not be able to go back in and edit when it's a 30-page document.

Honey...one thing I learnt is you need to look over what you wrote many times and maybe ask someone else to also. We checked ours sooooo many times and still submitted with small errors. There is just so much to put in and it does happen. Well done on getting one doco done...it is A LOT of work!!!

College girl- I couldn't help but notice your comment about saving pdfs. Just so you know, you're meant to print all your forms and fill them out by hand. It says that in the migration booklet. I know this because I managed to overlook this myself, filled out the forms on my computer, printed and submitted my whole application on Thursday last week. Then realised my mistake on Sunday morning had to wait till this morning (long weekend) to find out what was going to happen to all my months of hard work. Luckily, I was told my application was accepted in spite of my mistake (thank goodness!).

But long story short... Fill your forms out by hand.

I guess it is a little strange but it's definitely in the partner migration booklet and the immi lady on the phone confirmed it. Although having said that they have accepted my application (yay!) so there must be a degree of leniency. But if I did it again I'd write it by hand.

Hey CG, sorry to hear about the health issues. So i hope i can raise your spirits even higher by letting you know that i am aware of several people with extremely significant disability/health issues having visas granted.
So it won't be long and you will be feeding the kangaroos.

Thanks Aussieboy. Yeah, I think they'll put us through the wringer, but I do think we have a good chance of being approved in the end. I am so much more optimistic now than I was just a few weeks ago.

Thank you so much for your kind comment.
