It's getting sad.
I sent my payment by bank check so I don't think they would be sending our docs by courier. Unless you sent in an authorization form for that?

Yes, I filled out the credit card authorization form. I suspected that the only interaction DIAC would have with me would be financial...
It's the same reason I paid by credit card for the application fee.
That was processed on the day the application showed up at the embassy (Dec 19th), it took them until Jan 2nd to actually tell me they had received it.
Priorities, I suppose.

Oh well it's Friday again so we have to wait until next week to hopefully hear anything from DIAC again. I posted on another thread but haven't had a reply yet... What are your thoughts on below?

Since we submitted my husband's application I have renewed my AU passport, gave birth to my second child and have applied for his AU citizenship and passport. Should I send the new info to my CO?

I have the same CO as queliwantstogo who got approved in just two weeks. I'm hoping sending the info will get my CO to take a look at our file again. But I'm having second thoughts in case she gets annoyed and moves the file to the bottom of the stack since she hasn't asked for the new info. In our cover letter we mentioned that I was due to give birth anytime soon and could provide the new child's papers if necessary.

I saw that... I just couldn't answer it. After the queli's spectacular results with what I thought was almost no evidence -- I have to rethink all of the assumptions I hold. I obviously got something wrong. I really don't know what to tell you there.

I have heard that if you give new info, they pull you out of the stack, add it, and pop you back into the bottom of the stack. Then again, I've heard people say that they sent in new info and it seemed to remind their case officer that they were still out there, desperate and waiting, and the CO granted them a few days later.
There's just no rhyme or reason to this mess. DIAC is operating in blackout mode. They offer zero visibility in the family migration stream. Most other visas offer online status checking, with partner visas - they just tell you it's processing. Which, by the way, is the language they start using the moment they acknowledge receipt... so it's completely meaningless. It could mean it's at the bottom of a dusty pile, or it could mean they are right now at this moment typing your details into the magical visa granting machine. There is no knowing, and it is cruel.
I am half a world away from my partner. If I want to talk to him in the middle of my day, I can't -- he's asleep. I just need to know that I CAN come home...
I was doing okay when I was just waiting my turn. But now that I've been skipped in the queue, I am obsessively reconsidering our case... CONVINCED that there must be something wrong with it. I am having difficulty eating and sleeping it's stressing me so badly. Our case was complicated by the fact that my partner worked a fly in/fly out job, like so many Aussies these days. But I worry that a movement check is going to produce questionable results. An outsider might look at that as him visiting once in while... I just don't know.
If I were you, I probably wouldn't be able to help myself. I'd send the stuff in. Or you could send a general inquiry asking them if that stuff is considered "change of circumstance" and therefore required to be sent in. That way you shake the file up a bit, but you don't add to the paperwork your CO has to look at.

In regards to the baby being born, don't they need to be included in your application regardless? So even though the baby will be Australian, you still need to list them on the paperwork. I would think adding another child into the mix would be some pretty big information they would require.

I know it is quite frustrating not knowing at what stage the application is in. I am lucky that my husband and I are together here in the US while waiting for the approval. I hope we get the grants soon!

I know, however in the cover letter that we sent initially with the application we said that I was going to give birth soon. And then about a week later we had to send a bank check because of an issue with our credit card we mentioned in the cover letter for that that I had given birth already and that my son's birth cert would be available in a couple of months and should I send it in. I never heard back even when I sent a message to the general email address when I followed up if they had received my husband's medicals and if I needed to send additional info.

I think I'll wait until my son's passport arrives next week and email them then. No point in emailing today as they are closing soon. I bet they are having Friday drinks right now lol

That's a weird one. Because the baby is an Aussie, he/she isn't being included in the application. If you look at the change of details form, there are details for additional family included in the application. Yes, they want to know all of your immediate family members, migrating or not, for the application. But does it need to be updated if you have another kid? I'm not sure. Especially since they included details of the upcoming birth -- if it was important, you'd like to think they would ask for those details to be submitted.
Also, with the passport stuff -- it's the sponsor's passport that has changed, not the applicant's. The DIAC website instructs applicants to submit a change of details form for passport changes, but says nothing about the sponsor.

You could argue either way. I'd say the safe bet is to shoot an email off and ask if they need this documentation. But again -- not feeling very confident in my interpretations of "what DIAC wants."

Yeah that's where it gets weird. Both our kids names and information are on the application, but not included in the application because they are already Australian citizens. It's a weird situation. Personally, I would think they would want all info disclosed for all kids (Aussie passport for the child and citizenship certificate) but maybe someone else can weigh in.

I think that makes sense. My partner (Australian citizen) has a son from a previous relationship who is mentioned in our paper work. Obviously he is Australian but we included his birth certificate and a stat dec from my partner outlining their custody and child support arrangement (it's a verbal agreement between him and his ex). They might have required more information if I (applicant) had a son.
