Do you know, how long does it take to be assigned to a case officer?
Your guess is as good as anyone else's. They look at your app when they look at it. Sometimes, they just grant the visa without ever cotnacting you and you never hear from a CO. No contact is good contact, in my opinion. If you are being contacted, it means they need or want something more.

I went through online, I've uploaded 56 documents. Do you think, it is more than enough?
Have you ever been contacted to have interview previously?

We can't tell you as we don't know what is in those 56 documents.

It is very rare for an onshore 820 application to have an interview, however we are seeing a few more 801's of late having phone interviews so who knows if that will filter down to the 820's as well.

Is there such a thing as "too much" evidence? I don't think I will have 56 uploads, necessarily, though I have condensed many, many documents into the different categories.. Like, there are 17 examples of cards, gifts, and letters we have exchanged. 20 examples of joint participation in social activities. 20 examples of joint travel. Seven examples of evidence on social media. I have only included a dozen or so photos, and correspondence is limited to the two times we have been separate since the beginning of our De Facto relationship, though these pdfs include hundreds of messages. I feel we have a very strong application... Can too much of good things be bad?

My opinion is that too much is better than too little.

I have always said .... if the application was rejected are you happy with what you have supplied. That is the way that I word it.

I have always been a fan too of uploading more evidence during the process to demonstrate a continuing relationship.

actually, it's just 40-ish documents. I attached some categories with the same attachment such as, evidence of identity, I put passport, evidence of the name, with passport as well.
I put all evidence including my custom photo album which had 40 pages with 3 photos each page. Is that too much?

There is not much evidence but there is too little evidence.

You don't need to attach the same docs twice.

Hi Joeys

We lodged ours on 16 May 2016 and are still waiting for any response at all, whereas others have had their visas granted even though they have applied months after we did.

There appears to be no rhyme or reason to the time it's taking for applications to be processed, other than that it seems WA is processing them faster than everywhere else.

I don't know how DIBP works case loads, but one would think WA would be faster since they likely have less applicants. But who knows...
