Unhappy 176

Hi everyone!
M new to this site. Am waiting to hear the final decision of my visa:176. I was sponsored by Western Australia State in May 2009 and later applied ONLINE to DIAC in May2009 also and attached all required documents(medical and police clearences as well). The website says that decision is made within 6weeks. But now its more then 3months I didnt hear anything from them. Once called DIAC and they replied that its with the case officer.
I am from Pakistan.
Would anyone kindly advice/comment that how long it may take more for them to grant the visa.. As I am confident that I ve send all required documents to them.

Danish, can't say as I've seen anywhere on the immi web site that a 176 decision would be made within six weeks but I'm always open to learning and if it is something that immi have slipped in with their processing priorities that are now applicable, feel free to post a link.

Meanwhile, did you use the Checklist - http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener..._checklist.pdf and attach it to your application .

If you did use it, did you also see that health and police clearances should not be obtained until you are asked for them?
