Question, we were going to DC for the week of Thanksgiving to get my child her Aussie passport... but we just found out that my parents want to take us on a cruise that week to spend some time with us before we move to Aus. Do I need to let my CO or DC know that we are going to be out of the country for a week?

I called this AM to advise. I was told that they would make note but it was not needed unless I was going to Australia or planning an stay of 3 months or more in another country.

She also told me that for the time being the Partner Visa are being queued. SO only a limited number can be approved a month / year. I told her that it was not what was on line and I thought this was not a Capped and queued visa. But she said again "it is at the moment"...

I hate to sound like a whiner, but that is SO LAME. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would've done things differently if I knew this.
So here's a hypothetical question - what if I went over on a tourist visa, then got married, and applied for an 820? I know I'd need all the evidence (not too hard for me I don't think, we've registered our relationship and have had a joint account since Dec 2013 and are working on wills/beneficiary statements etc), but would the cancellation of the PMV and getting married on a tourist visa count against me?

I know patience is a virtue, but sheesh, patience for 5 months is very different than patience for 15 months. My heart goes out to all of you who are in similar situations!

I hear ya, I applied when I did and got my medical and background when I did as part of a plan. My wife and I live together here in the US but still from a planning point of view and moving my family with as little "risk" as we can, this random change in processing times and vague info is frustrating.

That sucks so bad. All the visas that get queued (or even the ones that were removed in June) seem to have such long processing times.
It seems like doing this on a permanent basis would just mean that more people will apply onshore... like, if you can work while on a bridging visa, it'd probably strengthen your case to be building a bond with Australia while you're in limbo.

Hi
There is only one problem with your scenario. The only evidence they take into account is that PRIOR to you application. So your period in limbo counts for naught when assessing you application.
