Marriage Settlement Visa, applied from Hong Kong, non-priority service

Online application: 17th Dec, 2017
Biometrics done date: 20th April 2017.
Confirmation email received to inform my application at decision centre: 22nd Jan 2018
Supporting docs sent to Sheffield and returned in Jan 2018.

Another email received with subject "action required": 8th Feb, 2018. It seems there is a confusion at their end for my visa application's category. I applied for settlement visa but my application is being processed for marriage visitor visa. Paid email sent to enquiry to clarify my category. Respond email received 2 days later to ask for some information in order to escalating my case. Nothing heard back since then.

Decision made: hopefully very soon.
Email received ready to pick passport: hopefully very soon.
