Unfortunately, my best mate who went home was refused today, after the BHC kept his application for the maximum 12 weeks. A phonecall to them last friday (from his wife in the UK, who returned after spending 4 weeks with him) confirmed that his application had been concluded and forwarded to the sub...

Re: How Long and Why.....

I applied for COA in March this year and have been getting the same response. I involved my MP and he wrote to UKBA. They replied saying they have a back log and they are doing all that they can, they have still not allocated a case worker to our case yet. They will be looking at each case in date ...

Application form is VAF 1B.

Photocopy or original? I think its your choice. Dont think there's any rule on that. See Supporting documents
In my opinion, you could mix them. Some original and some copies, depending on how important your documents are to you.

Don't they usually ask for where you're going to stay first night, can't she book into a hotel and stay there first night and that can be the contact address? They always want to know where a visitor is staying for the entire period of visit, not the first night. If you have a good evidence/reason ...

It does depend on which office and the staffs. My experience with IAS was good even though I didn't use them but I got good advice and I had a meeting with someone who knew what he was talking about.

Just like what Casa said, experience is mixed.

I wondered whether he was intending to apply for a fiance visa as his Hungarian girlfriend is now in the UK and he had intended to marry her in Hungary. Oh!

Basically Casa, he's not applying for a spouse visa which would have excused him from the rule, not married to his Hungarian girlfriend as well as (her) not excercising treaty rights in the UK.

His case is a little bit complex in my opinion.

Relationship breakdown (during the probationary period) could result in curtailment of your visa, unless you are victim of domestic abuse.

Seek legal help.

DL is not a quick way to regularisation. Those who dare to do it should be ready for a long wait, minimum of a year.

As already been mentioned to you. you should have returned home for a spouse visa.

I dont think your UK fiancee visa applies in other countries. However you can get married in any country of your choice as long as you can satisfy perhaps (the immigration) and whatever marriage requirements that are in place in your chosen country.
