I understand your frustration re no reply from your CO, we sent and email two weeks ago as my partners police check expires on the 22nd of October, we got an email back from the processing centre saying they have sent out email to our case officer and they will contact us if and when a new police check is required but so far no contact.

The only thing we really want conformation on is the medical. The clinic have sent the results and shows one medical as submitted but the results haven't appeared on immi yet and it's been a few weeks now. When I asked via the online form that was the one but they didn't reply to... Frustrating....

Well back to the waiting game. Fingers crossed!
i did my medical last month. hospital said it was all clear and my health status disappeared from myimmi account. going from what other people say, this means they have your results and are satisfied

London processing times when we applied were 10-12 months (now 10-14 months).

01/09/2014 - Applied online.
14/09/2014 - Case Office requested additional information that we provided same week.
09/01/2015 - Uploaded some updated docs.
29/07/2015 - No response since January.
Now 28/09/2015 and no response. Still confused how others are having application approved within 10 months and we've had no news on our for 13 months? I don't believe our application is overly complex.

dmuk, I hear you!! It's very hard to wait this long and see others who filed, in some cases months, before you did and get approved - even visas from "high risk" countries seem to be churning them out quicker than the UK/USA.
Here's hoping your wait will be over soon. Surely you're next in line!

Have you tried contacting them? I find it strange that medicals have not been requested yet.

My wife's Partner Migrant visa (sub class 100) came through today.
We applied on Dec 9th 2014 - so just under 10 months ago. Medicals / Police checks were requested not to be submitted before early June, so we submitted them then. Ours would have been a very straightforward case.
I have been watching this thread for a while now and was encouraged to see recent posters who had received their visas within 10 months, so just wanted to pass on the favour. All the best to those still waiting.

Congratulations! I'm also enjoying seeing everyone getting theirs granted, my partner applied in January so hopefully we're not too far behind you. Enjoy!

I would definitely contact your co and check what has happened. It may be that they are waiting for your medical.
