Did your CO say much about the processing times declining? Cos I wrote and asked mine about this and she gave me a stock standard policy reply as if cut and paste from the website and would not acknowledge this at all. So Id love to know more.

Also hadn't you already submitted the birth certificate back with the application?

Thanks

Hey hey,

no, she did not say much at all, only the one sentence, I wrote here in the thread somewhere. I think my CO probably only gave me the information, because I was so close to grant (just a guess). Yeah, unfortunately they do not give much information away regarding this. I just read here somewhere, that one CO from Berlin is working together with someone from Ozzie or something like that. Well, if that means, that the CO's in Berlin first do their work, and then application get put in the next pile, then I understand why they do not have much information....

No, I didn't submit it. I thought I would be sneaky, coz I thought it could be troublesome to get a translation from Polish to English in Germany. I was hoping that I would get away with it, to be honest. But in the end.....
