Hello Everyone
I was waiting to get my Visa and then share the timeline but it seems like a never ending wait so my timeline so far is :

5 years limited leave expiry: 14/08/2019
Applied online for SET(P) ILR: 15/07/2019
Documents submit online uploads: 15/07/2019
Bio metric done: 18/07/2019
Acknowledgement email: Only received Application submission email.
Status progress emails: - None ( As they stopped it after June 2019 i guess )
Approval letter: - Waiting
BRP received: - Waiting

It is quite frustrating as most of us has got it under or just over in three months but its been 4 months and 6 days since i applied...but its well under their 6 months time frame so staying positive.

Also i included a dependent ( my 15 months old daughter ) on my application who was obviously not part of my original application 5 years ago. So could be the reason that they are taking long ?

& my ex wife was dependent on my actual application she applied separately on 1st August 2019..didher bio metric on 12 august 2019..received her ILR on 15th November 2019 which was dated 12 November 2019.

So that means they are taking long because i added my daughter in my application , do they normally take long if you have dependent in your application ?

Sorry for the long post, all the best to everyone.

Your help is much appreciated thanks in advance :)

Hi, Any of you guys know what address I need to send the SET P form Signed information verification form to ?

I didn't upload them online and don't remember if I took it with me to my croydon appointment or not.

I am very stressed as I haven't received any acknowledgment email and I submitted my application on 30th of December. My BRP 5 years ended in 13th of October.

Please help me. To what address I have to send the consent form to ?

I called and emailed many times but no one can answer me in the home office or didn't help.

Hi Coolstuff ,

I think that's the case. Don't worry at all, you'll receive it within the 6 months period.
I had also applied with dependants on 02 May 2019 and still waiting, it's 7 months already! I received a complex letter on last day of my 6 months time frame.

Regards,
Max

Good evening,
I hope someone can help me with this question. I will have to apply for IRL in February and at the moment I have my full time job which I don't want to lose. From what I can see the awaiting time is 3 months at least. Do you think it will affect my employment? How did you prove your right to work to your employer? Does anyone lose their job during this awaiting time? I am so scared.

Thank you in advance.

your employer will need to use the employee checking service on gov website. The link is below

https://www.gov.uk/employee-immigration ... ent-status

If you make your application within 28 days before the expiry date of your visa, the home office will send your employer the positive notification allowing you to work whilst your application is pending.
No need to be scared or worried.

Hope this helps. All the best.

First of all, please forgive me for my many post, i am new with the site.

I just want to ask if it is mandatory to have a solicitor for my SET P application? i will submit my application next week 10 Dec 2019, and i am not sure if i should have a solicitor. i have my application ready, and i've been to a solicitor for advise. I was told it is ok my application. but the fee is very expensive at least £1200. can someone please advise me. also what documents did you need to submit with your application? i only have the BRP and the travelling documents. what else i should submit to support my application or my case?
