Thanks, cheesygarcia; I am still shell-shocked, but I am ecstatic too. I didn't expect it this early, so I am kind of at a loss for what to do next. I hope RM gets to your file ASAP.

Unfortunately, I agree with KrystHell that this means they are not entirely processing in the order received. As much as I want to be with my partner, I would tack another two months on to my processing time if it meant taking time off of other people's processing periods.

I don't necessarily think that's the case. I think each case takes a different amount of time to sort through. Since you provided just enough evidence but not a ton, I think it worked in your favor! You found that sweet spot where it was adequate to demonstrate the legitimacy of your relationship, but not so much that the CO had to spend weeks looking through it. lol. Also, your medicals were probably perfect... that makes a difference, too. Good job on your application!

I don't know about that. I'm from a low risk country and had my prospective marriage approved within a matter of weeks, but despite providing them with all the documents they required (and just the right amount, nothing too excessive) I am yet to hear anything back from anyone regarding my partner visa.

They didn't even acknowledge receiving my new passport details with my married name.

I honestly think it's all about who is dealing with your case, more so than the information you're providing.

Thanks CG! Maybe that is part of it. I imagine its a mix of both. Maybe I had a more straight forward case as well because my partner and I have not had any previous relationships and we do not have any children... I'm not sure. I just feel very lucky. I think I will wake up tomorrow wondering if I dreamed it all.

Date of application: 15.4.2013

Nationality: german

Visa type: de facto partner 820

Offshore/onshore: onshore

Date CO assigned: 26.4.2013

Date visa granted: 10.5.2013

Lodge onshore in person at the Perth immigration. Everything provided at once, presented as a "decision ready app". Was only about 2.5cm thick paperwork.

All I can recommend is provide everything at once, including your medicals. If everything is there then it makes their job easier and they can easily approve it.

If things are missing/evidence is not solid, then expect to play the waiting game.

Good luck too all. Didnt use a agent, just some tips from this forum. Thanks, Appreciate it

This seems to be the case in every single immigration office, onshore and offshore alike.

very frustrating!
You are 100% right that CO in charge make all the difference. For example, all the people that I know who lodged application in Vienna office wait for 11 months or more now (including me). What is happening in Vienna office I really don't know but it is obvious that you see grants from everywhere, some sooner some later only they don't grant at all.

Oh my gosh. I was just going to call and complain today and I checked my phone and got the grant email!!! I started crying in the middle of work. Just about at 7 months. I'm in disbelief. I called and woke up my husband right away! I can't believe it!!
