My husband just returned to Australia on an ETA. We called the Americas immigration service centre to try and get an update. The lady on the phone just said it was "being processed". She wasn't helpful and refused to provide contact details for the case officer. We did get that email elsewhere but the case officer did not reply to our email updating her on our travel plans and other changes in circumstances (such as me, the sponsor, getting a job in Australia). Now I am wondering if it is worth getting a migration agent. Wondering if anyone has any experience with that being useful at this stage in the process, or whether you have used one you would recommend?? I don't know why it is taking so long since we've been married forever and have 3 Australian citizen children.
aususa,
Sorry to hear yours is taking so long. After looking through the boards, I believe my situation is similar to yours. I have been married for years with 3 dual citizen children. I have only just lodged my application. I will most likely travel to Aus on an ETA for part of my wait. Good luck and I hope yours husband's comes through soon.

My partner and I lodged our application on November 20th and have been assigned ML, after seeing her average processing times I'm feeling pretty crushed.

Sorry, but it is what it is. Both COs seem to be churning out MOST approvals at 8-9 months. I wouldn't hold your breath for anything earlier, though as you can see a few folks got through at 2-3 months. No idea what decides who gets through quickly, though.
