I am going defacto on my partners 187.
Our Application was lodged decision ready on 18th September 2012 (Parramatta)
Acknowledgement letter recieved: 21st November 2012.
Now to wait for a case officer.....
I am very much in the same time frame as you.
Our 187 Decision Ready Application was lodged through Paramatta on the 25 Sept.
Acknowledgement letter received on the 7th November
No CO assigned yet
I have been told that alot more cases are assigned CO's in the run up to Christmas. Lets hope thats true!
Fingers crossed we get case officers before Xmas. It would be great to know someone was actually dealing with the application and its not just sitting there in a queue.
Keep me posted on how ur going :)
