Hi dimiku.. Yes they were fed up with me because I started emailing them very often so they might excalate my case but no luck with... I was reading on another forum (Facebook group) that in some cases they can take as long as 8 months(he meant to say that it will be than 6 working months) he excluded the weekends... Not sure how true is that... As I have seen many people on this forum getting their status email even on weekends.... Just waiting game let's wait and watch...

Hi,
It'll be interesting to see the wording of the email for sure.
It'll be great if you could share.
I have been waiting for 7 months for the decision myself so the interview might come my way also.

My timeline is as following

Applied online as a dependant on my father
Biometrics: 4th of october
COA:26th of November
Decison: one hour later 26th of November
pre-settled status granted
waiting for BRP
best of luck to all of you. I completely understand how frustrating it is to waiting in the dark but don't lose faith as my EEA family permit was rejected 3 times and EU settlement application rejected once but I knew it'll work out in the end.

@Mknawaz

Congrats

Can you please mention the reason of refusal of your EU SETTLEMENT SCHEME?

As you mention it was refused once.

Congrats again
{ I'm not a solicitor, legal professional or immigration advisor, all of my posts are based on my online search and my own PR, ILR (LR), 2 FTT and 2 UTT refused but finally after 3 years of long battle I got my SETTLED STATUS. }

Hi SuperH

Wow that's interesting that they invited you for interview...can you please share with us your Case background a bit and if possible the email wording... Im thinking it could be only case worker wants to know more about your case may be in details if some things were not quite clear for him.... Please keep us updated regarding your interview... All the prayers and good wishes for that.. I hope you get your status soon.. Good luck x

hi all
I have just got an email from the Resolution Centre acknowledging that the time it has taken for tmy application is very long (7 months)
They have suggested since I am separated from EU citizen and do not have a residence card under EU rules I could apply under primary carer (Chen Route).
This has to be done on a paper application which I must request from the Resolution centre.
Is there anybody her who has applied under this rule who could me some advise?

Hi Dimiku ,
I think it’s the same as Zambrano carer rights ,
Were you married to your partner ? And what nationality are the kids ?

I believe it is similar to Zambrano but I am not sure.
I was never married to EU national just durable relationship and had an eea visa from 2011 to 2016.
I separated before 5 years were up and changed the visa to FLR (FM) parent route.
The kids and ex partner are Hungarian

Hey Obie
Kids are 8 and 10.
I am separated and do not live with them but have acces rights agreed with mother.
My last visa was under FLR (FP) for 2.5 years and then I applied for EU Settled status thinking I was entitled.

Wow.. After 7 months instead of concluding your application and they are coming up with the suggestions... If there is option for you to apply while other application is already in process than I think it's good to go through that route... Did they send you email in respond to your query? Or it was a random email?

Even if you apply through that route I think in that case you need to prove your relationship to kids and that they are studying here... That's my opinion.. Hope you will get some better advice from anyone who had similar case..
