I don't think you should worry too much about those auto generated emails. Hundreds of people got the same emails including myself and I believe that if you were assigned a case officer, they would have asked for those additional information rather than just putting your case away. The only reason why they sent those generated emails is that when a case officer is allocated they can grant the visa straight away instead of asking for more proof and spend more time on the case (considering that you have provided everything). What does the status on your immi account say? If it doesn't say In Progress then a case officer still needs to be allocated

Good luck with everything

I'm trying not to think about the PR until next year since I know it is the exact same process. I did receive an email in February which was auto generated and another one in March with a big message "your chance to be granted a partner visa by the 30th of June" if I submit all documents by the 30th of April. I wouldn't stress too much if I didn't get those emails. The department is simply overwhelmed with all the applications made last year and they're low on staff. It's just unorganised which is why I wouldn't worry about it or even try to understand why it is taking so long etc.

Good luck and meanwhile enjoy everything else!!
Thanks for the reply I'm wondering if even though I didn't get the 2nd reminder email that I might be granted before end of June as well since I handed all my documents in before the 30th of April :P

You're right about them being overwhelmed. I can't help but keep thinking about it thought. It doesn't help that people keep asking me about it either because they don't understand how long the process takes etc which then adds to my stress levels. Even though my relationship is genuine and real, the fact that I have to wait for the PR puts everything on hold (e.g. buying a house, planning a family - or getting married etc, possibly setting up a business etc.) which is why I think about this all the time.

Worried about document layout

Hi all,

Its been nearly a year since my wife and i submitted her onshore partner visa. We submitted all the documents late july 2015. Due to the rising fees attached we decided to do it ourselves without the assistance of an agent. We both understood the check list well enough to feel confident we could do this but there was no indication anywhere on how to lay the documents out. Also no agent was willing to leak out this information either. Due to this i decided to keep the pdf files i created (mainly for proof of relationship ie. Facebook, email, whatsapp, skype and phone calls) as original as possible. This made the huge pdf file i linked together come across a bit overwhelmingly messy and may be hard to read for someone who had no interest in putting in the hours to find the content prooving the relationship. All up after editing this pdf file came to roughly 2000 pages as we talked almost all the time during our long distance relationship.

My question at this point is will this cause an issue or will the originality and massive thorough content work better for us?

I would like to add also in these trying times that my wife is a singaporean muslim and i had to convert in order to marry her.

Thankyou in advance for your input

Honestly who knows what DIBP read and do not read. I am a huge fan of attaching what you feel you are happy with. I also recommend attaching updated evidence ie. Joint lease, joint bill etc.

Did you get a certificate when you converted? You could attach that as proof as well. I would think that DIBP would be aware that a non-muslim man could not marry a muslim woman.

We have seen some people taking 15 or 18 months to get a decision. Hang in there.

Happy Ramadan to you and your wife.

Hello mish,

Regards the cert....unfortunately no. My wife and i aren't currently practicing but do maintain the religions rules (no pork, alcohol, etc) to respect her side of the family. Hope that doesn't offend anyone here.

The only recent stuff we have added to our application is our little bun in the oven, now 6 months in to the pregnancy. Which also has us a bit worried. Would hate to be seperated during this period.

Thank you for your reply. I do hope our case manager likes reading. There is certainly plenty there

You will find alot of people are non religious these days. However some countries are more religious than others so DIBP may look at that. For example coptic Christians in Egypt are super religious compared to majority of Christians in Australia. However, DIBP may not know if you don't tell them. Being the same religion does help in regards to DIBP but then again how do they know that you converted if you don't tell them?

I would be uploading other evidence which shows you are still living together too.

We have uploaded proof of marriage for our 3 weddings. 1st one was at the mosque (religious marriage), 2nd was a simple western wedding (legal wedding and also with friends and family), 3rd was a traditional singaporean reception in singapore. All of these were represented either by legal documents or photos in the application.
As far as the living arrangements go we did inform them of us moving house but as you may know without rental history or a permanent visa the land agent recommended my wife not to be on the lease. Tho she is listed as living here. Unfortunately we are past the date where we can upload more documents anyway. And we have hit the limit for supporting documents aswell ��
I just dont see us relaxing until we get a respose.

You get 120 docs all up to 60 for the applicant and 60 for the sponsor. Have you used all of them?

You can continue to upload evidence until a decision is made.

I would make sure you have bills together or something showing that you live at the same address. Any financial evidence?

The lease might vary from state to state but a friend of mine her husband (fiance) at the time got a lease in his name and he was on a PMV.

Ah yes we do have plenty of space in the sponsors section due to immigration saying we dont have to double up on certain documents. I suppose we can offer some more current stuff in those sections.

My wife seems to be under the impression that we had until the end of april to provide more evidence. She tells me that she recieved an email quite a while ago saying this. In our immi account it says that our application is in queue and also says the application will be eligible for PR in 2 years.

Just confirmed that we have uploaded evidence of a joint savings account, and also our phone bills are part of the same plan.
Only other things we could provide are house lease with my wifes name on it and the progression of her pregnancy.
Regards the pregnancy we have emailed some info through but not attached it to the application due to there being no correct type of heading to attach it to in the ducumentation section.

It is best to attach the evidence as emails can get lost. You can attach it under other under nature of commitment and then label it.
