I saw a few posts saying they recieve a letter where it states the ho normally take 6 months time but now interview.
When i applied in may 2016 for ilr along with my misses tier 1 depdendant extension we recieved biometric letters. Mine says they normally take 6 months and my misses letter states they normally take 8 weeks to process application.
The letter for interview i recieved has my case id and both of our names mentioned below and states that they normally take 8 weeks to process application but now they want interview me.
A bit confused as other guys letter states 6 months and mine states 8 weeks. Not sure if they are trying to interview both of us for relationship purposes.
Any idea guys.
I am in a similar position with you. I applied for my ILR (SET O) and my wife's Tier 1 - General Dependent Extension (both on 20th May 2016).
We both received different confirmation and Biometric request letters.
I later received a letter on 12th July saying my application cannot be decided within 6 Months as I need to be interviewed. I am still awaiting the appointment letter
But unlike your case, my wife has not received any further communication from the Home Office after her Biometrics.
So I will presume they wish to interview you both. The standard time for ILR is 6 months.....it is therefore very unlikely for them to be referring to your application in that stated 8-week period.
PS: my wife and I submitted separate applications to different Home Office addresses. I did this based on UKVI advice when I called them to explain my circumstance.
