The why do you keep posting in timelines that are not relevant to your husbands (now approved) application and dragging the discussions on and on.

It was me who asked you not to delete posts. Please try not to create unnecessary work for us, it is time consuming.

Congratulations to those who got approvals.
I applied on 28th July and still no news. Getting really depressed now.
I applied under the Tier 2 route (5 years) +ilr
Wondering if that is not slower than all other routes.
I emailed the nationality support team and unlike Perfectionist, they did reply saying that my appication will not be processed within 6 months. Seems really really unfair given that my appication is so standard.
What should I do, refer to my MP?
Thanks

I have applied on 23rd July under EEA route (over 6 years permanent resident, no PR as this only become a requirement in November 2015) still no news but I intend to wait full 6 months before getting in touch with them and involving MP at the same time. EEA applications also seem to be processed very slowly analyzing timelines on google docs spreadsheet and my application was also very straightforward.

Which email address have you used to get a reply?

Hi Jeff,

I used NationalitySupportTeamFMT@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk
Still hoping, an approval would be the best christmas gift ever.
Fingers crossed...
I spoke to a solicitor who said that she would not recomment chasing before the 6 months deadline as they do not want to ve rushed and wanted to take their time to assess all cases.
My only concern is that i was already told in their email that i would go above the 6 months. I really wonder why, i have been with the same employer, never broke any laws, paid all taxes, have a clean police record and contributed to the conmunity in meaningful ways. :(
