Default PR application in process in london... taking forever....

Hi

I am new to this forum but I like what I see so far. I was wondering if I could get any worldly wise advice you may have to offer....
I am sponsoring my common law British husband for PR. I was approved for sponsorship and the application was sent to London and they started processing the file on November 3rd 2009. We have not heard anything since that point! Is that normal? I have looked at other posts and PR applications on average do not seem to take that long....I am extremely anxious!

Should I be worried?

Any help, advice encouragement would be greatly appreciated....

Cheers

Depending from your partner's nationality and background, as well as the background (and evidence supporting it) of relationship it may be too long, just right or you should brace yourself for a longer wait.

Sending case specific inquiry to CHC London (through webmail on CIC website) should at least bring some answers.

thanks for the quick reply

I have sent an email to the London CIC today...so fingers crossed that we will hear something soon....the wait is driving me mad!!! the only reason I am concered is because so many others appear to have gotten thier approval in a short period of time...as far as I am concerned there is nothing overly complicated about our case....well I guess I will just have to focus on the virtue of patience

thanks Again

You may not get an answer as the average processing time for 80% of the spousal applications is 2-8 months, so you are still within the window.
