We know exactly how you feel but I suppose they must be really busy over there with all the applications they get. Not much consolation I know but they will get to us/you in the end.
Keep smiling it will happen. :)
Take a look at the thread “Things are Moving” look down for your Visa type and you will see what the status was as of Tuesday this week.
You can’t totally rely on it though as according to it, we are now with a case officer but we already know that we are with the decision maker and have been now for 12 weeks and 2 days (Not that we are counting) http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5449
Also take a look at “Time Line” and scroll through to find somebody in a similar position to your selves. http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5222
Look on the bright side you have sold your house and that is a whole different ball game in the current market.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Just not a good day today i'm hoping.............weather doesn't help..........summer holiday and 4 kids to entertain...........got enough stress!
It's so frustrating - this process is a real test tsn't it?
On Tues this was the info from DIAC:
General Skilled Migration visas: Class VF
Subclasses: 475, and 476,
E-lodged: 25 November 2007
Paper lodged: 19 September 2007
Did you front-load your meds etc?
They have sped up this week, so maybe they've got more staff/are getting through this back-log at long last.
Also this website http://www.beupdate.co.uk/index.php has all the latest visas with COs and granted. It might be good to see who else has got one as I've seen some from Dec have even got theirs.
I hope you get yours soon, (not that it's ANY of my business) but don't lose your house sale as with the market like it is, it could be a bad time to try and find another buyer??
Good luck, will keep watching out for your post telling us your visa's here!!

Don't get too stressed though, it's not worth it, you need to get the laid back Aussie attitude going now - and if your application was lodged last December, how much longer can they possibly take in processing it???!!!
You don't want to get out here right this minute anyway - it's blowing a storm outside and lashing down with rain and we had ice on the car windscreen three mornings in a row, brrr. Just like old times...
Keep your chin up.
Our application was lodged 14th August 2007 and we only got the visa 1st July 2008 and we had a case officer since 14th Feb
Can you look into a short term rental while waiting on the visa as you don't want to lose that buyer. We have only had the visa a month and it has been the worst month ever knowing we can go at anytime but have no buyer
Hang tight it shouldn't be too long

Now i'm even more worried!
I know what you are saying about risking losing our buyers!
Not easy situation to be in!I have the 4 kids all off school and nursery for 6/7 weeks and really didn't want to start them back into school here(eldest would have to start at high school and youngest full time primary and he still has a sleep in the afternoon with his dummy and blanket and is soooo NOT ready for school yet and he doesn't even turn 4 until August)
We could go and stay at my parents static caravan on a holiday park if we had to but it's up Blackpool way and so if it was September we would have to just keep all the kids off school i suppose!
Can you imagine my stress levels 6 weeks of summer hols and then god knows how many more weeks all 6 of us in a static caravan!
No wonder i drink to much wine and have high blood pressure!Keeps me sane!!!
Good luck with house sale keep fingers crossed for you!
