Exclamation PMV. No contact from Case officer

Hi I have applied for a PMV 6 months ago, and have recently been asking my CO (over email) some questions about evidence and also if I was able to also apply for a tourist visa. Ive had no response and wondering if anyone has had the same matter happen to them - Should I keep emailing her if she doesnt respond?

I tried to call another occasion to ask how long the process would take because our Intent to Marry date had expired already. She explained that I had to wait that there was a process. That was 5 months ago. No contact since.
I have not tried to call since then.

this is so wrong, it makes me sick, but i bet they have taken your visa fee from your bank, its so wrong ,if that is the case, it is almost stealing, they are taking peoples money and giving nothing in return, so so wrong, there must be some thing done about this sort of thing, that is if you have payed the fee. have you payed the fee yet.

Sadly, DIBP (formerly DIAC) is very good at enforcing time-based deadlines for others, but avoids them when processing is concerned. Other than for refugee visas, there is no specific legislative requirement that obligates them to process a visa application in any specific amount of time. I have no doubt that the people processing applications at DIBP work very hard, however the end result is that a great many people are left waiting for results for months or years, with no indication given as to how long the wait will be. I have to believe there's a better way than that - one that treats visa applicants with a reasonable amount of respect, one that recognises that they have paid for a service and that service should be delivered in a reasonably timely fashion, and one that allows applicants some measure of predictability over the timeline for their visa application processing.
