Milestone reached! PMV application made online August 16, 2014. Medicals scheduled for September 11.
Interestingly, on the list of evidence, it does not ask for the NOIM form or letter from our celebrant.

Found where they ask for the NOIM (it's on the drop down menu for "Relationship" documents)

I was just reading a PMV thread where the person took awhile to upload all documents. The visa was granted.

Are there any guidelines regarding time frame regarding document upload?

For example, can I apply now, but not have my divorce decree issued yet, but upload it once I receive it?

Some documents are not a problem, but I think that WOULD be. You have to be officially divorced on the date you applied, and that wouldn't be true until your decree was issued. You could apply after it was issued and before receiving it, but applying before it was issued very well might be a problem. Hope that wasn't too confusing an answer.

Thanks CG! I see your point. I just have to wait then.

I applied for an offshore de facto partner (309) visa by paper to Washington DC, lodged on 13 December 2013. The application was complete with all medicals / FBI clearance / police checks, etc.

It has been more than 8 months since I lodged my application and I was not assigned a case officer during this time. I emailed them on a couple occasions because I was traveling to Australia on an ETA, and received only automated/generic responses telling me the current processing times were first on average 5-10 months, and then later than the average time at the moment was 8-9 months. (At first I was really holding out for the earlier side of the window, as all of us are!)

Today I received an e-mail from RM for the first time (case officer?) that I should arrange travel arrangements for 5 working days outside of Australia and notify them so that they can assess my application. And that I shouldn't re-enter Australia until I have heard a decision from them. (I want to be hopeful, but more than 8 months waiting has taught me to be patient and not to expect too much!).
Will keep you updated if I get a decision on my application either way.

While it doesn't make this waiting easier, it's been helpful to see the huge range of timelines and situations on this timeline. If you'd like to add me to the applications in process list, that would be great.

All the best to everyone currently in, or about to begin, this process.

Hi sharyny,
I just contacted them via the general contact address they provided in the first email sent to me - Which is just the form they have online.
In my email however I quoted my application reference number.
It wasn't a problem at all.
