Processing times getting longer

Hi everyone

I called the department about a month ago to find out if I'd been assigned a CO yet (Partner Visa), as it was 4 months since they received my application, and was told no, and that processing times are 6-9 months.

I called again today to ask for info about Bridging Visa B, to see if I'd be allowed to return to the UK for my sisters wedding, and while I was on the phone I asked her to check my application. Still no CO, and processing times for Partner VIsas are now 9-12 months. I just have to keep reminding myself that at least I'm here in Australia waiting, so we are at least able to be together while the decision is made.

I just wanted to warn anyone else who is waiting that it may take even longer than previously thought. According to the website the QLD, ACT and TAS offices have been merged, as have the NT, SA and WA offices, apparently in an effort to improve efficiency. So far I don't think it's worked, it sounds like its just made the problem worse.
