Replacement BRP takes 4-6 months to be issued. You can leave the UK and ask someone to send your BRP so that you can come back however I do not suggest it

Hi there,
I was applied for my children in 2 February 2018 Replacement BRP card after expiry as ILR Settlement status. And today 2 August 2018 I have gotten new BRP card with one child card valid 5 year and the second card valid for 6 and half year. I hope the answer will help you. Thanks.
