ok? So neala applied for a Visa at the same time that I did, and yet I'm still waiting for my Visa. Looks like it's time to complain!! Clearly there is something wrong with the process.

My CO is JK... I actually had to send an email to the migration team to make sure they had received my docs as my CO never replied. The docs should be fine....but I've never been told if they're right or wrong.

The approach they take, although I think it is wrong, is that if you hear nothing all is ok.

I don't know your CO but I would be slow to complain if I was you because neala's case is unusual to be approved the quickly. Your case is still within the normal limits and you might not have been approved because there are things in your case that are not in neala's that they need to look at.

I know it is unfair and doesn't make sense but I wish for you not to make things worse for yourself.

Yes, I guess you're right. Although there is nothing complicated with my application. I've been with my Husband for over 5 years and we've been married for over 2 years now. None of us has been engaged or married before. Pretty straight forward I would say. They've also got lots of original documents from the both of us. I find this process far too long and unnecessary.

Thanks for the advice.

I applied mid August but lodged in London. Told 8-9months wait. We want to leave UK at end of March as we need to be out of our rented property by then. Not easy to crash on a mates sofa with 2 young kids in tow. Just hoping like crazy that it will be granted in the next 2 months!

P.s. I don't know how to get my fancy flag thing with timeline attached to my messages!

Yes you are right about the process for sure. It is unfair and tormenting to the soul. You should feel free to do as you wish but I've heard so many stories where too much contact or compliant goes against you.

This process teaches us all patience.
