Writing my personal statement at the moment. When writing about domestic arrangements, what do they mean by how you support each other physically? Are they meaning intimacy?

Oh my! NO, they definitely don't want those details. LOL. Can you copy and paste the exact wording of what you're reading?

Generally for "domestic arrangements" they're talking about who does what chores, where you live, if you live by yourselves or not, in a house or a flat, etc.

Lol. They mean like if you have an operation how they support you, problems at work. Those kind of things. The things they expect you to talk to your partner about.

Thank god! Haha!
I'd seen someone write on her blog that she didn't think they needed that information, but then was asked for that info when she had an interview... So she suggested to put it in there.
Glad I asked!!!
Makes sense with operations and things. Thank you!

Well, that would certainly add some spice to your CO's day if you did include this.

You are not obliged to them that kind of information. Actually some religions do not talk about sex openly.

Hi there,

I am very new to this forum. I am trying to figure out the timeline for the processing of my visa, but there is so much information on this forum that I can only get a very vague idea.

So here is my case:
I am French, living in the USA, married for over 4 years with my Australian husband. We have one child (2 1/2 years old, Australian citizen) and one on the way.

I am going to apply for a 309 subclass visa soon from the US (this coming week), online. We have (I believe) all the documentation requested (statutory declarations, proof of our social life, financial aspects, commitments to each other, marriage and birth certificates, etc..). As I am pregnant, I didn't undergo the health checks yet but will as soon as baby is out. I am going to send the application for the background check to the FBI tomorrow. I am hoping to have the health checks done within the next 3 weeks and I've heard it takes about 5-6 weeks to get the FBI background check in the mail.

So here are my questions:
1- once I submitted my application, do I have to attach the documents immediately or do I have a few days or more to attach them?
2- Once I have uploaded everything (except health and police checks), approximately how long does it take to get our case reviewed by an officer? and then approximately how long until the visa gets granted?

As I said, I am a newbie in this forum so there are a lot of things I am learning every day.

Thanks for your help,

Cecile

Welcome Cecile. Unfortunately, while we've seen some shorter grants here recently on this forum. the Australian Embassy in DC's website has been recently updated to reflect a 12-15 month wait for all partner visa applications. So this is unfortunately the timeline you need to expect. There's no telling exactly when you'll get assigned a CO, but that rarely matters anyway as when that happens doesn't really effect how long your visa takes to get granted. Hang in there - you're in for a long wait.

Oh, and yes - there's no "latest" time you can attach documents, but I would try to get them all uploaded within a couple of weeks of applying (the sooner the better).

My husband is American and we applied for his 309 visa online on April 25.

I'm currently in the USA on a B2 visitor visa, and successfully had my stay extended until Christmas (which means I'll have been here for a year). When applying for my extension I used his visa application as evidence of my intention to leave the USA at the end of my visa period, which might be helpful to anyone else here on a B2 visa.

Hey Mellie thats good to know. I also have a b2 visa but am currently in Australia and my partner is in America. Have you still not heard anything from immigration/CO? I am going to be visiting in October for a month and than if we still havn't heard anything by february I think I will go to USA on my B2 visa and wait until our visa is approved. They don't make it easy Has anyone on this thread heard from their CO yet?! I am shocked at how some visa applicants applied at the beginning of this year and still havn't heard anything! Lets hope they start working on approving 2014 visas!

Applied for Offshore 309 Visa- 19th of July.

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.
