I was wondering why they would want you to send this all over again since it is more than clear that you live with your children and are responsible for their upbringing etc...?

Yes, you must pay council tax, it has nothing to do with your immigration status and if you do not pay, they take you to court.

I applied in April 2017 acknowledgement and biometric in May 2017 after that nothing at all.on 16 July 2018 asked for additional documents which was sent on 30 July 2018 waiting since then nearly 2 weeks but we can only hope my friends.
Did they ask you to prove the residence of the child is same or not and to prove that parents are listed as emergency contact in school and gp.
Yes they asked us to send the bills or gp documents on the same address and also the proof of the child living at the same address letters from gp and school etc and specifically from April 2017 since I send the application.
okay, so we could get the same decision hopefully good. As i never heard that they ask for additional document in 7 year cases,. they just simply refuse or allow.

Hi,

Have you tried contacting your local MP and ask him /her to write to them for an update on your case? This is some that you can do and most people do so in cases like yours. It seems like HO is taking a very long time to make decisions, charging a lot of money from people like us and not caring whether it's been 5 or 16 months for a decision. Each case is different. I have a friend who's been waiting for 15 months, another, applied to renew his visa (which had been granted 2.5 years ago) and it took 14 months for the HO to send his papers back.

I have applied in October(10 months) last year for our case and so far no significant developments. Only last week we've heard from them asking for proof that our children live with us etc.

Get you solicitor to write to them, keep calling them yourself for updates and get your MP to write to them. These measures don't guarantee it will be any quicker but they'll surely know you aren't just sitting there waiting for a solution.

My MP said that the backlog on decisions is now over 350.000 so you have an idea what we are up against.

If you're facing difficulties, you can contact you local social services via Council and they will surely help, that's what HO advised us to do when our MP wrote to them.

A above all, keep your faith and know that Jesus can fight this cause for you, all the way!

God bless you!

I would be shocked if it were 350. Surely that would be one month's worth of work at the very worst? I reckon 350,000. That's the only explanation for the length of time it takes the HO to sift through paper work, make the right phone calls, etc etc., and go ahead to make decisions.

If the number was even 3.5 million, it would be an aha moment for me. Because right now, the tardiness makes no sense of any kind. It cannot be explained away.

Hello, I'm in a similar situation to yours. I made the same type of application (FLR FP) as yours at about the same time as yours as well. I also just received a letter from the Home Office requesting further proof that my child lives with me in order for them to make a prompt decision on my application. This is despite sending all such documents with the original application. Nonetheless I have sent the requested documents. Do let me know if you receive any further correspondence from the Home Office on this issue.

From the comments I've seen, it seems to be a positive sign.

I did create my own post but did not get much response to it so i am posting here the same.
I need advice from respected members of this group.
We have applied in Oct 17 as a family on the basis of our child who turned 7 in sep 17. We have our biometric in following month. In feb 18 Home office sent two forms back with missing signature which we have signed and sent back within a week. Since then we have not heard anything from Home office. We have contacted our local MP four weeks ago who requested home office to provide the reason of delay and prompt action on the case. Home office did not reply to MP yet. But my Solicitor received a letter from home office on 7th Aug to provide the proof of residence of the child to confirm that we are living with child on the same address and they did say in the letter that they are aiming to take prompt action on the case once the information is provided. We have sent letter from gp, school reports and utility bills yesterday by recorded delivery.
I just want to ask if is it a positive attitude of home office that they taking long and asked for this kind of information. Or they are just delaying purposely and going to refuse. Thanks in advance

Hi,

It is actually 350,000 so that's over Three hundred and fifty thousands cases pending decisions. Staggering!

Hey Georgioche, how long ago have you sent them the docs requested? They say a decision would be made promptly so I would guess in a few days, couple of weeks?

Thanks

Does anyone know the answer to the following question.

"Is an overstayer allowed to use the NHS once they have paid the IHS fee as part of their application for leave to remain, can they use it while their application is pending or can they only use it when granted leave to remain?"

If anyone knows the answer it would be a great help! Thanks.

Good evening everyone. Just like many other people , iv been a silent reader for about a year now and I must admit I've drawn a lot of inspiration from the forum therefore it'll be unfair not to share my story for others to also learn something from .

I started coming to the uk since 2003 to date.fast forward in between this period I met a lady and had two kids with her but we cldnt settle as married couple.
Last year I decided to stay in the uk permanently to play a role in my children's upbringing so I overstayed my tourist visa and applied as parent of british children .

I did the application in November , biometrics followed in December 2017. After that nothing happened until I contacted my mp about my father's demise in July 2018.

My mp in turn contacted h.o on my behalf, homeoffice asked for documentary evidence which I provided the death certificate on the 1st of August 2018.

Today 20th of august my solicitor called to say all documents and brp has been received by her office.

This is my story. Stay blessed all those who are still waiting
