If you are deciding to stick with the agent, all you can really do is attempt to get some idea of what is going on.
As I've stated previously, the communication change has been a strange one and if a visa is rejected, I would not normally think a decision would be retracted so a review can take place.
By the same token, I doubt that a rejection decision is going to be given out verbally.

Has the agent got any communication in writing at all?

I was told by my agent that the case officer that told us it had been rejected said she never said that. Apparently an internal investigation is going on concerning this but I seriously have my doubts that anything is being done. The unfortunate bit is the lady that was saying we would have an answer by end November last year but still we wait and the very one that said the visa was denied is one and the same and as the case officer her recommendation to the more senior officer that is making the final decision is that it not go through. I have been told that doing or saying anything concerning what has gone on, which is highly unorthodox and unjust, by this case worker would not be in my best interest at least until a decision is made about my visa. The point is they are taking longer than the 6months to make a final decision and I am unsure if there is anything that we can do other than wait and hope for the best.

I wish that cases that are genuine would go through quickly as this wait is such an emotional struggle for us and our family. The fact that both our families are 100% behind us and have shown this should make them realize the truth.

Am I being unfair to want an answer in the given time limit? 3-6months seems enough time to decide one way or the other. My medical and police clearance prob won't last if I must appeal; which I will do if need be. Surely when it comes to relationships it really is unfair having to be apart for longer than the 6month max given? May be this is a rant or a plea for help. Having been apart from the one you love and lived with; for this period of time is like being punished.

I understand there are some bad apples that apply for visas for other reasons and thus there are all these walls put up but for a temp visa that second the relationship shows a crack, the visa becomes void, well one has to wonder why are the walls up so high and the wait can be so long for those genuinely in a de facto relationship or marriage.

This can be an emotional ride I wouldn't wish on anyone. I know my journey has so far been very painful and traumatic. If this took place under any other circumstances other than for a visa then it wouldn't be condoned by any democratic and civil country.

I suppose all I can do; and all anyone can do in this situation; is wait and hope that a positive conclusion is reached soon.

There is no real time limit re visas as they can all vary even if it seems that yours has been delayed through a sequence of events.
At the very least, you agent can make an enquiry in writing/by email on the visa progress.

Hey there

I've been meaning to update this for the past month but been rather busy :-) I finally got the visa and arrived 3weeks ago in Australia. Really enjoying it and so glad to be with my love. I had to wait just short of a year to be re-united and hope that the laws can be revised in the near future so that others don't have to go through everything I had too.

Currently looking for work so that's the next hurdle but after going through this, NOTHING is too hard ;-)
