Hi! We just submitted our case and received our case number.  I just want to clarify regarding the NBI, Police Clearances (of the cities you have lived more than 6 months) and CENOMAR. I just got my CENOMAR and Police Clearance from Royal Thai Police (since I've lived there for 7 months) and both certificates have 6 months validity which I think would still be valid on the day of my interview. I believe NBI and UAE Police Clearance have 6 months validity as well. Though I am not planning to get my NBI and UAE Police Clearance until a few weeks before my interview, will they still accept my CENOMAR and Thai Clearance or do I need to get a new one?

If I deactivated my Facebook, would that still be relevant? Would they still ask to check? 
I personally don't like my personal stuff posted on Facebook.. (I rarely/never post photos of my family members for privacy reasons - and only have photos with friends).
Surely it would not be fair to make judgement call based off this?
I am also one of those people who don't want to "announce" anything until it is official.. as in, after the wedding. 
I've actually never posted photos of my fiance on my Facebook, not because I'm hiding anything but as I said I am quite private about certain things that are close to my heart. But I make it known subtle-ly that I have a significant other. My close circle of friends (and his) know we are together as we all hangout together but I just don't need people I've met once or twice + the 300 something people I went to high school with to know about my love life. It has always been this way with me, even with ex-boyfriends. 
I honestly don't want to change the status on Facebook and my thoughts are that one day I'll just post a photo of my bab(ies) ..and that would be my "announcement" that I have a family of my own. Now I'm all worried about this Facebook status thing! :o

Thank you for the tips above @AdaMarie - so very helpful!

Hi everyone! I'm very thankful I've found this post. Neither do I post status and photos on facebook until its official. But I'm just worried if they ask because I and my fiance are both 24 so I doubt if they gonna buy it if I tell them we're not on facebook lol but anyhow, you can't make judgement by just a facebook status. Now I'm worried. :(
