We also got the auto generated email, just under 3 months from submitting our application.

Just wondering with the checklist they send as a reminder- We didnt submit personal statements seeing as the online application already asked those questions.eg. when/how we first met, future plans etc. Do we still need to write a personal statement each and upload those?

No, ani89, the statements are embedded in the online application. More senior members please correct me if I'm wrong. In my case, I'd already written a "relationship narrative" with photos, so I went ahead and uploaded that in addition to answering the questions on the webform.

We did submit those 5 statements as we didn't have a lot of 'evidence' to submit and it was our opportunity to share with the CO/Immi our take on things. We did think there was a lot of doubling up/overlapping of info though.

I did the same as IndyMama and although we had typed up statements ready to go, we basically ended up embedding them into the online submission. Then I followed up with a pictorial diary of sorts.

I figure that along with some excerpts from transcripts I put together from our yabbering on the app we use to communicate, there was plenty to demonstrate our commitment and planning. We are lucky enough that you can get a copy of all communications within the app emailed to you and whilst it was tedious to take a bunch of cut and pastes, it was really funny to read back on.

I figure I'm one of the last in line here so I'll cheer you guys on for a speedy approval (especially you HP because you've been waiting too long) as that means I'm one closer to being allocated a CO.

Lol, we submitted all 800 odd pages of our continuous Viber conversations... we decided to let them have access to it all, however intimate or embarrassing.

Husband actually printed it initially (800 pages, omg!) so we intend to keep it as an artefact of our relationship.

Yikes. It definitely won't hurt your application (don't worry) but I'd highly, highly advise other applicants from low-risk countries like the US NOT to do this. They (by regulation) HAVE to read every page you submit, so you can seriously slow down your own processing time by giving them that much to read. You should provide SELECTED conversations that demonstrate commitment, plans for the future, etc... but not a log of EVERY conversation. It's just too much for them.

Any new news anyone? I am back in Australia and my partner is still back in the U.S. It is so hard to be without him and we just wish we could know a rough time when we will get approved not just the 12-15 month wait that they suggest. Anyone that applied earlier in the year hear anything from their case officer? I hope some of us get some good news soon!

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.

Wow, cec2725. Fourteen weeks means they don't seem to be catching up yet on the backlog.
