Partner visa - date of applcation v date of processing


My partner and I got together in October 09, just before I left town. A couple of days after I left he called me and asked me to go back, I'd already got a few trips planned (including a trip back to the UK to visit family), but I returned to town to be with him in December 09, and he moved into my room I had at the pub where I worked. We stayed there for a few months, then moved into his house in March 10 when the pub changed hands. As far as we're concerned, we've been together since Oct 09, and been living together since Dec 09. We don't have any proof of joint purchases or anything like that until we moved to his house (March). We sent off the application and received acknowledgement in Dec 10. So we're now waiting, trying to be patient in the face of the backlog.

I've picked up from this site that one of the reasons people get turned down on partner visas is that they haven't been together long enough, and although we have, we can prove it from March. My question is, will the delay in processing applcations work in our favour? Will the fact that it takes longer to process the application help as the longer it takes them to process, obviously the longer we've been together? Or do they just ignore that and take the date they receive the application?

Applications are considered on the information as supplied at date of application and if you did not put in any details or evidence of your relationship prior to March 2010, you ought to at least see about getting a statement from your hotel employers re your partner staying with you.

my employer did a statement for us about our relationship, and he did put in there that we lived together in his hotel. Hopefully that will be enough.
