I'm still waiting for a response.
Applied in 2016 May
Interview in middle of March 2017
Finally after requesting several times, UKVI have sent my passport copy to the council to give notice of marriage. Despite requesting them to send my copies directly to the council (this is what the process as requested by the council) twice, they sent it to me and my solicitor. Finally they sent the copies to the council day before yesterday.
Did anyone manage to contact the home office on 0300 123 2241? I've been trying for a while but not able to speak to anyone. Been on the recorded music for nearly 15 minutes in some cases for 30 minutes.
I used the online status check page https://contact-ukvi.homeoffice.gov.uk/
When I used my home office reference number (HXXXXXXX), the status came up as decided. when I used it in the past, it said incorrect reference Issue is, it says decided on 10 July 2016. Did anyone check this service?
When I use my case id it says 'The reference number XXXXXXXX has not been recognised'. (I used the case ID without the 0 at the beginning as instructed in the website)
