Exclamation How should I contact my C.O?

Hey guys!
I'm just wondering how i should contact my C.O. I have her contact details, but i'm not sure sometimes I get worried that they forget about my fiances application... and I just want them to hurry up a bit... I give birth in 2 weeks and the embassy hasn't even done the initial assesment i dont think. They said they will make my application a priority because i am pregnant?? If you have any ideas how you normally contact your C.O. (in Berlin) or EU please let me know... any ideas??? because im getting stressed out and its just the beginning... plus second time around...which is quite nerve racking.. as all together its been nearly 2 years since i started with the first application.

Just send a a nice e-mail explaining your worries. They are human too, so just ask them what is happening with the application. Don't forget to include your case/ file number.

I hope they do really make a priority of my pregnancy...hmmm...

Just to let you know, a lot of girls are pregnant too, and waiting for a visa. There are no priorities, they just go according to the date. And if they do prioritise any application, they are just being unfair towards the many others. Some other people lost their parents, brothers and have to sit alone at home and wait for a visa. Some are already depressed, on anti anxiety drugs, and they have to wait too. I feel for you and know what you mean but all the applicants think they should have a priority. Therefore, the best solution is too wait. These are the rules. 10 months, no priorities in partner visas. That is that the berlin office claims "The nature of family migration is such that all cases have an emotional
or compassionate element. Consequently, in the interest of fairness,
applications are processed in date order."
Take care and be patient.

im talking about partner visas... not family refugee visas or other visas.. as i should add.. that in a relationship having a child together is important...and the embassy prioritizes it as it is strong commitment to both husband and wife.. no one likes waiting 2 see their new born baby..

So is Nitka talking about partner visa's. As it's been pointed out, the DIAC's own website states that they don't prioritise except under exceptional circumstances. Pregnancy is not classed as that, apparently only death or potential death of an immediate relative.

With the greatest of respect while I appreciate that this event is special to you and your partner, there is nothing special nor exceptional about pregnancy and there is no reason what so ever for you to queue jump, it's unfair to others that are either in the same situation or others that have been parted from their loved ones for a long time.

I have seen many pregnant woman on many different forums think that they should get special treatment because of pregnancy (and I'm not going to lie, it winds me up), they have all been told no. The only case I have seen where a case was prioritised was a woman who's father in law was dying.

They may have told you that they will prioritise, but how likely is that looking to you right now?

All that said, I do truly hope that your partners visa is granted so that you can be together for the birth,
