Is there circumstances where an 801 can be applied for earlier?

If you were in a qualifying relationship for a least 3 years at the date of application, or 2 years with a child of the relationship, then if an 820 is granted the grant of an 801 follows automatically straight away. Some case officers do not send the 820, notwithstanding that it must be granted before an 801 is granted. This might be to stop applicants who think they have been dudded running around in circles, tearing their hair out and sending abusive emails.
