Yes, we are still waiting. We do have a few updates though. We decided to recently hire a registered migration agent, who was able to make contact with ML and RM (we are now not sure which one is our case officer, but it sounds like RM).

On the positive side, both have confirmed that our medicals have indeed been received. On the negative side, it turns out that our confirmation e-mail that we received back in April contained an error. Turns out that our application was not lodged on March 9 as listed in the e-mail, but April 9. With that in mind, we have now been waiting about 6 months and 1 week.

Another bummer is that both case officers have repeatedly informed our migration agent that our application has yet to be initially assessed. It really does feel like it is languishing in the queue, but at this point I am kind of trying to just not think about it.

Still hoping for something this month, but given that we just don't know, we have pushed our timeline back about two weeks. We were going to send our dog over just before Thanksgiving, and then fly over just after Christmas. Now (and assuming I get the visa between now and mid-November), we are going to send the dog on December 9, and fly to Australia around January 4. If we still have not heard anything by February, I plan to travel to Australia on an ETA since my wife's best friend is getting married.

Good luck to all.

I'm confused. When did you mail off the application? If you mailed it off before March 9 (and I'm assuming you did since you didn't question the March 9th lodgement date initially) where on earth did it go that it didn't get officially lodged until April 9? That's bizarre.

Thanks CollegeGirl. I thought i would post about our experience.

We have been together since February 2012 and got married in NY on July 24 2013 and i left the US a few days later after lodging the application. We front loaded the medicals and FBI check with the application. Once submitted we realised that the US marriage certificate was not sufficient as it was not an apostle certificate so my wife flew to NY to get the apostle certificate a week after the application was received. These were sent in along with new application forms as we also realised that the ones we filled out originally were out of date. We never heard back that any of these were received. My wife is currently a police officer and had applied for a leave of absence and was due to come to Australia on an ETA in December hoping it would be granted while she was here. She was just about to send through an email to the CO about the ETA and the grant email arrived. I truly believe that it is because of her current occupation that the grant was so quick.

We did send the application in March. I had transcribed my credit card number incorrectly though, and it took some time to resolve.

When that was eventually resolved, and they did send me the confirmation, I assumed they gave me the date of receipt as the lodgment date which is why I did not question the March 9 date. Instead, they used the date the credit card was actually charged, which was April 9.
