Hello waitinglad,
As others have said you are not alone , I applied on 16/07/2018 and have had 2 status emails + the acknowledgement E-mail so far.
You may be a bit worried because you've not got any status email but looking to some replies here ; some applicants have not got any email and they had their ILR's approved ,
I think the status email is up to the case owner who wants to communicate through email.
So Rest assured things will be just fine..
all the best

Don’t worry. Remember time line is up to six months. It all depends on case worker. Some case workers are faster than others. It will be okay.

Hello Everybody
I find this forum very informative,interesting and excellent for migrants .
I am looking forward to apply for ILR on refugee basis next year january 2019.During my refugee leave of 5 years I have made some mistakes whivh are a bit scary now.I would like to hear from knowledgeable users and those who have gone through almost same circumstances.
1. I received a court fine of £190 for travelling with room mates oyster ,taken to court by evil tfl in2015.
2. I received a ccj for not paying a mobile bill of £250 in 2015.
3. After getting refugee status in 2014 I made a blunder by obtaining a national passport of my country, although never travelled to my home country or anwhere on it ,just obtained it to use as an id to open bank act.
These 3 things are constantly circling in my mind whenever I think of my ilr application in jan 2019.
I am hopeful that I will be successful .I would love to hear your comments my friends .Thank you.

Hello

I have applied for ILR after 5 years refugee status.

I sent application on 21st September which received by HO on 24th September. I haven't received any acknowledgement yet.

The issue that bothering me is that, I was just trying to fill application online to print and finalised on 5th September when it got submitted online when I tried to download/ save it. Now at that time I was not even eligible to submit ILR application as I was not in the last 30 days time frame. I asked someone and decided to let it go and do nothing so the application get rejected itself. On 24th September I received HO letter for that online application to submit the supporting documents. I replied next day explaining that application was made unintentionally and wasn't even aware that submitting online ILR application for refugees was possible.

Now I am worried because haven't received any acknowledgement for actual paper based application that was received by HO on 24th September so far. My leave to remain is expiring on 17th October.

Should I contact HO to ask about it? If so, can anyone please guide me which number or email address to use.

Thanks in advance!
