Yes i feel great that my visa application had been allocated to a case officer and she is not asking for any additional documents from me or any additional proof of relationship. There is also some cases who dont hear from their CO, the next thing they know is they have visa, maybe your husband case is like that. Fingers cross for you, im praying that soon your husband and my visa will be granted. I will keep you updated on the development of my visa application,

God bless you and your husband!

Are the requirements for a Fiancee Visa same as the Partners Visa? The reason I asked because we have filed a Fiancee Visa application before and was denied because the CO said I need to have my Philippine marriage annulled first, despite the fact that I obtained a Divorce decree of said marriage in the USA.

The reason we are living together now for 1 year is that an Australian Migration Officer told us that if we cohabit for 12 months/1 year then apply for a Partners Visa, there is no need for above mentioned Annulment. A few days ago, another Australian Migration Officer gave his opinion that I still have to go through the whole process and obtain that Annulment. After what I and my fiancee has gone through in the past 2 years, all the efforts, sacrifices, and the frustration of the Fiancee Visa denial, I am even more confuse and so frustrated now. Anyone, please help. Thanks...
The quick answer is you do not need an annulment to apply for a defacto visa.

For the long legal answer look go to the search function at the top of the page and search threads for below thread

5.they asked husbands birthday, his address in Australia and Australian phone number
6. after the seminar they give you the attendance certificate.
7.after the seminar go to the counter and collect passport with CFO sticker in it, they also staple the seminar attendance certificate into the passport.

I found the 43 kg allowance i the PAL terms and conditions for baggage.
I called PAL in Sydney and tried to get the ticket changed but they said you can only book the immigrant fare from the Philippines, too late for me.
Also I found out that if you are travelling from the provinces to Australia, book the ticket from your home city to Australia with PAL and you get the full baggage allowance all the way, with PAL Express you only get 10 kgs to Manila but if the ticket is booked from say Butuan / Manila / Brisbane you get the international allowance for both sectors.
