Congrats ... JustMarried 2013.... Wishing you all the best....

Got email confirmation from Immi today.... DN is no longer with the Dept... Our CO is now RM... m so glad I mailed a query to the dept... Otherwise we'd still be waiting for update... RM asked a couple of questions... Would this count as a interview.... Has anyone actually undergone an interview... By any means....

@dplunkd... I suggest you get in touch with Immi.... Through their gen query line.... to ask who your new CO is....

Very few people who apply through DC have any kind of interview. Glad you got in touch with RM, that's awesome. I'm tempted to call now... lol.

Yeah... We're so happy to be able to get in touch with our CO... At least now we know that our papers are moving not gathering dust in a pile.... Really... it lifted our spirits 😊...
Ok... Maybe they'll just gonna gather info they need via email... Hahaha... Yeah you call or mail too... I urged Dplunkd to contact Immi as they may already have changed their CO.... DN is no longer with the dept.

I don't have DN. I had ML, now I have RM. I just have not heard from her - my migration agent has, twice, but all she's done is send the standard boilerplate "we're working on it - give it 5-12 months" language. What I wouldn't give to know SOMETHING, anything, about my case in particular.

I know the feeling! I work for government and sucks to be on the other end of their standard responses I tell you!!

Though I have only asked about the processing time once when it was near our wedding date. I soooooo want to email my case officer at the moment and say "what are the chances of getting a decision before the new year" haha.

Atleast today when she replied to the email that I sent last night about if she got our evidence from a few weeks ago among other things I got an additional "thanks for your cooperation" this time

I feel like I have annoyed her enough - first because our agent contacted her twice (a month apart each time) and just asked how soon she'd finalize our visa (something I would have never done, worrying it would annoy her), and now I recently contacted her to let her know about my ETA/travel plans. I don't want to annoy her too much though I haven't been contacting her more than once a month for the last few months.

I know that feeling! It is like you want to know how much longer but don't want to annoy them. I know of one applicant that emailed and asked when a decision would be made so that they could spend new years together in oz. Ever since then it is .... do I or don't I.

Most of the contact I have had with the case officer has been emailing evidence.

Our case officer told us that we could contact her direct after my fiance's interview and not through our agent, so that was nice of her

We sent RM an email 3 weeks ago to advise her that my husband would be out of the country for 2 weeks with the hope that they might be able to grant the visa while he was offshore (we submitted it 8 MONTHS ago!). Unfortunately we haven't had even a courtesy response. He will have to come back on an ETA if it doesn't get processed this week. Getting worried that things will slow down even further over the holidays.

Congratulations jm2013. I have rm now and my lodge date is 3 days after yours and I'm headed to Aus in 4 days on an eta if no 309 comes through so I'm trying not to get too hopeful but just maybe...
One question, did you get called or interviewed or were you notified by email that it was granted?
