hello thanks for your mail. i will like to let you know that i have seen and called my Solicitor and he keeps saying i should wait for there decision, and there are now making there decision now about my case.the MP wrote me about my case cos she ask me to get back to her if i dont hear anything from the ukba in 3months time.she even ask me to come see her in the office next week thursday in the MP'S office.But what i dont understand is when i go to report in Croydon, i ask the staff if any update on my file, and they keep saying nothing on it and says PENDING.Maybe they have not even look at my case or even open my file yet but my GOD will deal with my case work and the team so that my book will be open and i will see favour in jesus name.Thanks
HI, Have passed your MP letter to your soliciotr?Tom
HI NO I DIDNT PASS THE MP'S LETTER TO MY SOLICITOR YET, COS HE WILL JUST ASK ME TO WAIT FOR THE DECISION.
Hi, You should pass it to the solicitor and ask them to draw up a chronology in a letter asking for the matter to be dealt with as a matter urgency. This should be submitted wiht a complaint letter too. I would expect that a decision should be reached within 6 months as an upper limit unless there are other complications with the application requiring further investigation. I know it's a frustrating position to be in but there is no available facility to expedite it. You just have to rely on the UKBA to be efficient, which I'm afraid in a great many cases that it is demonstrabe that they are slow. Please remember to RATE my answer OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE or above if you are satisfied that you have received the correct legal advice (even if it is not the answer you wanted to hear), otherwise I do not receive any credit for answering your question. If you are not willing to rate my answer as OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE then allow me to assist further by replying asking what clarification you require rather than rating my answer at levels below.If you wish for me to provide you with further guidance on any question you may have in the future then please submit a further question to the board requesting me either by my profile or by marking your question. “FAO Tom”.

So that means they have not even done anything about my case in ukba and i was told the ppl dealing with my case are not in london but Sheffield? how true is that sir?
You can't do a great deal about it but wait. They have different offices. That's why you speak to on elsewhere to where you sent it. I don't think a letter from the pollice will make a dfference I'm afraid. Please rate my answer. Kind regards,Tom
No problem. Good luck. Tom
Thanks. Good luck. Tom
Yes, what is it?Tom
I haven't got your question. please submit a further question to the board requesting me either by my profile or by marking your question. “FAO Tom”. Kind regards, Tom
Hello thomas how you doing? i went to report on friday and i ask the lady at the counter if any updates on my case.
Hi, I expect that the UKBA have trasferred the file from Durham to Liverpool. I doubt it's anything to worry about, they probably log the file initially at Durham where you sent it and then send it to Liverpool for examination. Tom
Hello sir thanks and you are offline sir.
Hi, Look, it's not relevant to you where it's being processed. It's internal structural organisation of the UKBA, it's not relevant to whether you will get leave to remain or not. Please relax. If they have your application it will be dealt with in due course. Tom

pls do you know anything about 'discretionary leave to remain? in the uk thanks.
HiThanks for your question and detail you have provided. For clarity and the avoidance of doubt, could you please respond to the following USING THE SAME NUMBERING:-1. What visa do you presently hold 2. Why can you not extend this3. On what grounds do you wish to apply for discretionary leave to remainKind regards. Tom
hi have been in the UK for since 2004 and my visa expired. I have family in the UK and they are all UK born citizens. I have a partner she is British and also have a step daughter British citizen also. I came to notice with the UKBA, and i was taken to IRC Gatwick on Sunday after i had sent in my FLR in the UK. My lawyer put in an injunction for my charter flight and also i had a JR. I was now released from the detention on TA, and i have been reporting in London bridge since Feb 2012. Since Feb till date they have not said anything about my case and they UKBA called my lawyer for him to drop my JR so they can consider my application. I was send a letter from the UKBA for me to go post office for my Biometrics and i did so. I just wanted to know how long they can take to make a decision on my case,cos on my form my lawyer ask the Secretarary of State to granted me Discretionary Leave to Remain. My local MP also wrote to the UKBA and they send her a letter about y case and she sent that for me to see also. I was just fed up of staying at home so i join the volunteers for the Olympics London 2012 and checks where made on me and i was accepted cos i don't have any criminal history/criminal record or convictions. I now have the ID card for the volunteer London 2012. I know my GOD can do all things and he will touch the case worker team so i will see favour in there sight. Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me? I'm a testimony in JESUS NAME AMEN. Thanks Alot

HIGOOD MORNING PLS ANY NEWS YETTHANKS
HiThanks for your reply, I was just drafting my answer for you. I think you should relax a little bit. I appreciate that the uncertainty about your immigration status has been going on for you for a long time but the time from which you should judge waiting is from the date of the most recent application. Therefore you should judge how long you have been waiting from February 2012. I appreciate that this is a gap of three months or so but the reality is that discretionary applications take much longer than normal application based within the immigration rules. This is because they are more complicated. A waiting time of this length is totally common for applications of this type. On top of this the UKBA is going through some significant internal upheaval as a result or organisation change. They have not changed efficiently in the past and I am finding long delays in near enough all applications that I have submitted on behalf of my clients. Your article 8 argument is at it’s strongest in respect of your children. Your relationship to your fiancé is very helpful, but not persuasive because you have not lived together for two years and are not married. If you married your argument would be much, much stronger but it is already reasonably convincing if you are directly involved with the children’s upbringing. Deciding to volunteer was not be best move for you, it’s not particularly helpful to your case because although it is well-spirited and well-meaning it could be argued to be a breach of the immigration rules but not one, I would think, that the UKBA would use solely to reject your application. Assuming that you documentation is comprehensive and has all been submitted then I would expect you to be granted further leave to remain but it may take some more time before the UKBA respond. They have taken your biometrics and that is a good thing. Stay in contact with your solicitors.If you wish for me to provide you with further guidance on any question you may have in the future then please submit a further question to the board requesting me either by my profile or by marking your question. “FAO Tom”. Kind regards,Tom
