Partner Visa 309 help! Conflicting emails from CO on visa grant

Hi all, just wondering if anyone else has found themselves in this situation and/or can offer any advice?

We applied for my husband's Partner Visa 309 in March this year, from France, so the Madrid embassy.

I received an email from our CO on Monday stating that his visa was ready to be granted and to make arrangements to travel offshore so his visa can be granted (we are in Australia now).

I emailed back to say great news and ask a few questions about how long we needed to be offshore for and the CO replied basically saying sorry for the misunderstanding, the visa is not ready to be granted and must wait standard processing times to be met.

Given the granting of a visa is of such huge significance for us all, I'm a bit at a loss that the CO can email such news in error. Has this happened to anyone before? Any advise on whether it's worth following up at all? The only message I got was that they appreciate that their emails may have been confusing!

Cheers.

Now you've got me worried. We applied for a 309/100 on the 1st of December 2015. We were asked for more information from the CO in the Madrid embassy in April which we were told was completed correctly and then told there was no need to contact them again, we had to wait between 10 and 14 months. We're now coming into our 8th month and it's very hard when my husband's been offered a job in Sydney but they can't wait much longer for him. It's all so so disheartening and frustrating.
