I believe this is the last document I need to upload, so hopefully should be hearing from a case officer soon!
This is awesome! Kind of takes the stress out of the possibility of being rejected and having to get back in line! Thanks for the update.

Oh that is great news! The paperwork is in the building, it can't take THAT long to get to her desk! I bet you hear before Valentine's Day.

And it was signed off from 'M'. Does that mean she is our CO?!
My heart is racing!!!
We were also asked for more docs including both of our relationship history statements with how, when and where we first met, how our relationship developed (to engagement and then marriage), when we decided to commit to a mutually exclusive relationship to the exclusion of all others and our domestic arrangements (how we support each other financially, physically and emotionally and when this level of commitment began.
We had BOTH already submitted 5+ pages (history, finance, social, household, commitment) covering all the above AS WELL AS our online 40/47. Anyway, we did them AGAIN (as in a redo, not resubmit the same) and pointed out we had already submitted previously. My thinking is they/M either wanted to see if things were still the same or had changed over the 6 months we've been married or had completely overlooked it in the 120+ documents we've already submitted. I took the opportunity to include more 'evidence' and detail... I love to write so it was no big deal for me but I think my hubby kinda just rehashed his previous statements.

Hi jnix - I'm a native! What about you? I think Sydney will be an interesting adjustment since it's more spread out and more of a driving culture than NY - have only been to Melb once, but it seemed more similar to NY in terms of being compact and having lots of the trams to get around. But I do love Sydney every time we go - we were most recently there visiting my husband's family in October, and it got me really excited to make the move! And in the middle of this icy winter, have to admit I'm very excited to live near the beach for a change!

Melb is easier to get around but I'd compare it to Chicago more than NY. It's decidedly a "Second City" and culturally it's not like NY in that money doesn't drive everything (Sydney has that). However, if you go all the way to Australia from NY you want more classic beach, sunshine lifestyle! I'm a transplant to NY myself.

Please blog or post here about your time there if you can, I'd read it!

Lol Jnix I would never refer to Melbourne as a 'Second City'. Melbourne and Sydney have a long standing rivalry, yet in reality we are very different cities with completely different focuses, climates and cultures. My yankee partner tells people back home it's kind of like going back to the 80's but a little different haha. It also depends a lot on where you live within the city, outer suburbs have a very different culture to inner suburbs. I don't think Melbourne or Sydney will really compare to NYC as neither has the sheer amount of people. Wish you all the best in adapting

It's not an insult, it's a characterization and in some ways a compliment. Melbourne is more understated, reserved and concerned with just being a good place to live. Sydney is more outgoing, sexy, and tries to project its allure to anyone who looks at the place.
