I totally understand that, but it still seems like the sponsor would get their own acknowledgment. But, if they don't, then that's another thing I will quit worrying about!

according to UPS tracking, the FBI got my wife's finger prints and request for background check on Nov 3 2014 @ 0934am.

As of Friday I was told that they had not even open the package yet.

About 20min ago (11weeks 1 day) my credit card was charged. I am told that from this point to expect another 4 weeks (+mail time).

You summed it up perfectly. My fingers are so crossed for approval before kiddos birthday so we don't get hung up waiting for the FBI.

Ok so just received an email back from ML. She said that we unless we can give more "official" evidence of our relationship we can't be approved for the BC100. As we only had just started dating at that time we don't have any joint bank accounts going back that far or lease etc. But she said she will approve us for the 309 if we can not give her any more evidence for the BC100. So my partner just emailed her back so hopefully the next email we get from her will be our approval! Will keep everyone posted

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.

I have a new theory, the new estimated processing time of 12-15 months is factoring in the 12+ weeks it takes to get the FBI checks... The time frame increased for both around the same time. I would think that if people got their checks done to submit with their applications they would find they would be approved within the original 9-12 months.

309 is better than nothing I guess? Disappointing but a step in the right direction and now you can plan to reunite. Congrats Felicity :-)

Ah its not too much of a disapointment for us, we didnt expect to get the BC100 anyway! I will be ecstatic if we get approved soon. We have already booked his one way flight for March. Everything is finally coming together, I am so happy I can't wait to reunite with my partner and not have to be apart for months on end ever again! It has been a hard 6 months but it is well worth the wait! I wish everyone else quick grants hopefully it continues to stay around the 6-7 months
