Documents submitted....now what? Tips for dealing with the wait?

Applying for a partner visa for my wife (offshsore, in Brazil).

We've filled out all the forms, uploaded all of the documents and evidence and my wife had completed her medical.

So, I'm just wondering how things work now. Do we get any updates by email or anything as the application moves through stages? Is there any way to track things?

Or at some point in a year do we just get an email saying yes/no?

The wait doesn't seem like fun. Can anyone give advice how to deal with it?

Do not expect any update from them (you would be the first). They may call your partner for a interview, this may or not be with notice (ours no notice). They asked for colour birth certs as sent black & white by mistake, they then said I was out of Australia recently and asked her when and why - see was out by a few weeks on date but knowing was for my fathers funeral passed the test.

After about 6 weeks or so we applied and got a Visitor visa for my partner and 2 kids to wait out the PMV here - that helped.
