4/4: Called UKBA because it was over 4 months since my application, and most people here already had news by then. At first she told me only give information if it's over 6 months, but I insisted, asking her only if a letter had been sent. It turned that yes, they sent a letter asking for more information, but to the wrong address! She apologised, confirmed my address, and say they're sending another letter.
18/4: Called again because after 2 weeks I still hadn't received any letter. He said for some reason hadn't been sent, and he will order to print it and send it again. I asked him what information they need, he said proof that my wife was exercising treaty rights.
19/4: Sent the information to Liverpool via Special Delivery. It was received by UKBA on 20/4 at 8am
5/5: Received the approval letter with the rest of the documents, in the prepaid Special Delivery envelope I sent to them.
15/5: Received ceremony invitation letter, and booked the ceremony for 21/5
