I think everybody is very anxious on this post regarding their loved ones case.
Irrespective of what it says about ones application on these sites,it will still take the normal time and procedure till the final outcome.
The average wait according to last year figures for Islamabad for spouse visa is still 3 months. Very few and fortunate one gets theirs in less than this time.
In order not to hold ones hopes to high, you should wait at least a minimum of 12 weeks before enquiring about your case, because it is unlikely you will get a response.
If your loved ones are refused and you have to appeal, then to go through this process and winning it, and by the time your spouse arrives in UK, you are looking at 12 months.
I know your loved ones look forward to escaping from Pakistan on the first flight available to the UK, you have to tell them to a bit a patient, beacuse those same people who after living in the UK for about 2 yrs, want to escape this hell hole back to their own country. I have seemn it so many time already.
