Sec 3. (2) on page 3.

If you have lived in the UK prior to coming to Ireland with your EU partner I'd imagine they couldnt possibly find yet another reason to frustrate the process.

However seeing that this is Ireland the maximum processing time of 6 months is considered as the minimum and expect lengthy delays if this forum is anything to go by.

Seems to me that only people that are applying for the first time are treated in this way.
We put our application twice and my wife got 1 year residence permit on both occasion.Next time I am expecting nothing less but 5 years residence.
Anybody in similar situation?

If you have not been dealt with in 6 months, I think it is really important to contact Solvit (http://europa.eu.int/solvit/), especially if your case is clearly one that can be processed quickly. They may be able to help, but they also try to look for patterns which may require EC legal intervention.

You should also send them a polite registered letter reminding them of their obligations to process it within 6 months. This is outlined in the excellent posting by zen63 (http://www.immigrationboards.com/viewtopic.php?t=11898).

Finally, I do not see anything that prevents you from suing them for lost wages if they are slow. They are breaking their own law. Talk to a lawyer, and gather evidence of what you would be making if you had a job. Better yet, get a job offer! You could try in small claims court, and it would at the very least wake them up very quickly.
