    So after nearly 3 months of preparation: collating documents, printing off bank statements, highlighting phone bills, having medical checks, applying for police checks, etc. I have FINALLY posted off our 820 Partner Visa application last week and received an email with a letter (5 pages) and receipt (for $3060!!) attached confirming that they've received the application, and it could take months to be assigned a case officer and the actually decision itself/ confirmation could take as long as 13 months! Owch!).

    I had a friend who's application took 12.5 months to process.

    Anyone else had any recent experience with this? :arghh:

    To be honest, I 'm just glad they have it in there hands now!! :biggrin:

    Yes - there is backlog - have you been asked to complete a medical and police checks? Put mine in in September, before they announced the 13mth wait - crossing my fingers they stick to the original time frame at least. Good Luck.
