Default CIC Status Change

Hey Everyone

as some of you guys already know I am into the 6th month of my wait for my common law sponsorship visa. Today my CIC status changed from 'application received' to 'in process', does anyone who has made it the other end know roughly how long I may have left to wait, this is exciting as after months of 'application received' its nice to know you aren't stuffed away in a drawer somewhere lol.

any input would be much appreciated

Don't have you on the spreadsheet, do you want to be added? If so let me know your specific dates and I'll pop you on.

If you have a look at it (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...eVZxYVE#gid=18), there are some people who have had ECAS change so you can see their timelines and make your own conclusions on how long it might be.

Any updates George? We are both CL applicants with really similar timescales so very curious to know.

I'm still In Process and desperate to see that change to DM on ECAS!

Hey mark

Sadly still no updates but I was a little worried about the fact there seems to be so many who are getting super quick DM but after asking in another post if it is normal not to get a quick DM I have been reassured that it is normal and not to worry. As my other half keeps saying "it will happen when it happens and it will be here before we know it" and to be fair this has been a super long wait but also it seems to have flown in (such a weird feeling lol)

Where are you at the moment and where are you guys heading to?? We are moving to Ottawa (where SAMs family are, although he was born in Alberta)

Wishing you the best of luck

George

Best of luck to you too. I'm rooting for us!

CL applications seem to take longer to process, but a few CL's have gone through in a week to 10 days and I'm hoping we're not too much longer now.

Ottawa is a nice city. Quite picturesque and lots of cultural things to do. We're in Toronto. Been here since Oct '11 with my Canadian GF and on my second IEC visa. Which runs out early Oct '13! Therefore hoping I get a decision by mid Sept to allow for the COPR to arrive...

Then I can stop checking ECAS every half hour haha! Are you finding yourself doing that too?

Yeah i have noticed that the CL applications do seem to take that wee bit longer.

Yeah ottawa it lovely , the plan really is to spend around a year on Ottawa before settling in Toronto. but what you were saying about checking every half hour , I know exactly what you mean , i am driving myself crazy with it. I'm checking constantly at work, on my phone , on the train it's getting to the point where I can't go past a internet connection without checking lol.

I honestly believe that it can't be much more time to pass before we know , lol I know the min I will probably check after i send this.

Hi George,

Yeah a bit of an update actually. On Tuesday I caved in and emailed asking if they had a rough idea of when I could expect a DM, and then the next day I received an email asking for an RCMP police certificate.

It's only because my name matches a known criminal and it's not a standard requirement. I was half expecting this; the same thing happened with my last IEC visa.

Anyways I should have the certificate in my hands mid next week, at which point I will send it to London, and I'm hoping this is the final hurdle and the DM will come quickly therefater. I'm hoping to have the COPR in my hands mid - late October being super optimistic!

How is your sanity holding up? Maybe a quick email to them for an update might spur them into action?
