Well, its now 10mths1week and "pls provide additional documents" stage is happening
Which is fair enough; pity it took over 10 mths to get to this stage

Hi DC2AU,
My CO is ML too. Just to give a background about our application:
We mailed it to DC embassy on April 5th 2013 and got a response in a week with the CO details It was DN before. We front loaded the application with police checks and medicals. In the mean while we were blessed with a new born in Dec and updated the CO with the detalis. It took 10 months for the co to get back on the application. Good thing is that they added our new born as a dependent but asked a tricky question regarding my Sponsor's Residency status in Aus. His PR was approved in Feb 2012 and he just statyed there for 13 days till date. She asked to prove the residency in Austrlaia. Well, we replied that we didnt want to leave each other and wanted to get married and migrate. Because of the relationship, marriage and New born he couldnt establish there and asked her to suggest if we need to be in AUS immediately so that i can go on a tourist visa and update her the details. She can give a decision then. As the relationship is the only reason and we didnt want to live apart because of marriage and all we asked her to tell us what to do.
The time given to respond was 28 days but we replied back the very next day.

Excited and nervous to hear what she says

Waiting.. its been 3 days that i replied back..

Champ..

Hi Champ,

Hopefully everything will go well for you! For what it's worth, I think they may be out of the office for a few days due to the blizzard in DC so I'm anticipating delays in their response time.

Champ... I'm a little nervous for you. One of the requirements for PR holders to be able to sponsor is that they must be "usually resident" in Australia. The definition of that is very nebulous - but many COs interpret it in a way that means the PR holder must have been living in Australia for the last two years. If the PR holder doesn't meet that, they can also submit evidence that proves they have significant ties to Australia and proves they intend to reside there permanently.

Having said that, you've explained why the PR holder is not living there currently and it's completely at the discretion of the CO... I just hope ML decides that's enough. If you want to be on the safe side, you might want to have a consult with a registered migration agent (or even just ask Mark Northam in his Ask Mark thread on this forum). You have 28 days to provide what she asked, so she (I believe) won't be acting on your application for those 28 days anyway. You may still have time to submit more evidence, IF an agent thinks that's necessary. Maybe it's not and I'm just being overly concerned, but I'd hate to not say anything if it could negatively impact your application.

So, now that I've reached the "request for additional information stage" (just minor info re: my husband's status in the US), is it pretty safe to assume that everything else in my application checks out? Anyone have a sense of the timeline once the requested info is submitted? I'm really hoping that everything will be finalized in the next few weeks....

Generally it takes a week or two after they get the documents.
