Yeah, this "further assessment" stage has honestly been more stressful for me than just waiting after initial submission.

They also haven't ever updated the time frames this month to show July processing times, wonder why the delay.

Super annoyed the global processing times haven't been updated! It has to be any day now.

I find it's so much harder to plan for anything when you're in the further assessment phase. We had stated in our application that we meet up every 3-4 months which for us the next visit would be this Sept/Oct but since the RFI earlier this month, we're not sure what to do about an Autumn trip, much less booking a return flight for Christmas. It could be granted on the final day of the RFI deadline or 6 months from now. We applied in March 2019 so I wasn't expecting a grant prior to February 2020 but have seen so many people get partner grants from the US lately on much shorter time frames. Oh, what to do!?!

You and I are in the exact same boat! We booked flights for November and December and notified them on our application, so I'm hoping something comes through before then, but who even knows!

It's so tough dealing with this stress, glad to have people here who understand it. <3

When you say you "notified them on our application", did you do a "change of circumstances"? I've heard that updating Immigration that way can "ping" them into reviewing your application especially when there's been an RFI.

You and I applied the same month so here's hoping we both get grants before the end of the year (or sooner)! My fiance is in Perth and I'm in the middle of the US which means ~34 hours travel from my door to his. I wish he lived in Sydney/Brissy and I lived in LA....life would be much more manageable!

yes, that is what i did! it just had me complete a little paragraph about what has changed, so i put that information and then attached copies of our plane tickets. i'm hoping they will at least approve it by the time we fly back over in december, that would be awesome!

my fiance lives outside of sydney and i'm in KY, he's flying over in november to see some of my family and then do our engagement party and stuff with all my people before we go back. we haven't seen each other since i was there in feb and left the 1st of march, so this has been rough!

That's great! Seems fast! What Visa did you apply for and would you like to join the list?

It does seem fast! We applied for 309/100 Partner Visa (and at time of application, we have been married 4 years so the 100 grant should come through at the same time. Please list me!

Applied on the 12th of June, 2019, just got our first RFI on Wednesday, they're basically asking for the entire rest of the application as we haven't uploaded heaps of stuff (we thought we'd have a bit more time, we have it organized, just need to scan and upload stuff, do my partner's side of the application, and do the medicals.) We'll have been together for a two and a half years in September, been living together in Australia for two years. The main stress we'll have is getting my partner approved as a sponsor, he has a significant criminal record (been imprisoned 3 times for a total of 15 months, nothing violent or drug-related though.) We can't afford an agent, so all we can do is get a heap of statements from friends and family, he's going to write a lengthy statement explaining how his life has changed since he last offended (9 years in November) and explain why he got in trouble, etc. I will also provide a statement about how he's a great person and he's come so far since those times, completely changed his life around, he's a wonderful partner and they don't have to worry about him in a domestic violence sense and he's not going to re-offend. A lot to do, and it may not be enough, but we don't have a choice.

That must be stressful for you both. Did he have a parole officer or have to serve any community service? Did he go through any schooling or career counseling when rebuilding his life all those years ago? I have no experience with this subject but just my first thoughts would be to reach out to anyone in his life that might be in the category of community organizer, volunteer director, religious leader, parole officer, career counselor, mental health counselor, teacher, employers, neighbors who he might have done a kind deed for, or local political counsel members he may know to write some stat decs about his journey to the person he is today. Save the friends and family 888 stat decs for your relationship evidence. Just my two cents. Best of luck!
