Default PR approved but "paperwork being finalized" ???

Hi Imm. experts,

I'm waiting on my wife's PR visa (sponsored by me). We have a lawyer who is
telling us he did a status request by phone to New Delhi, and was told that
the visa is approved, but that paperwork is being finalized on it, which may
take another month.
The e-client still says "in process", and it has been 3 weeks since the time
we were told this. I am doubting, at least slightly, the validity of our
lawyer's report to us.
I would just like to know if all this sounds like it's on the up-and-up.

Thanks.

- Brian

Hi!
Well I have to say that my husband's eclient status still shows in process and his visa has already been approved, he has gotten already a letter to bring in his passport since the visa is ready to be issued! I wouldn't concern about what the eclient status says, it is not updated properly.
I am sponsoring my husband and it took them 14 days to finalize the paper work, and on top of that they had their printer broken at the embassy and that day they weren't able to issue visas even if they wanted to because of that.......
and this is in South africa......
I've heard also from somebody else that they had to wait a month for the paper work to be done!
Good luck!
Pat

Pat,
I would like to ask, which paper work are you referring to and how did you
measure that 14 day period?

Hi Brian

My husband got a call 2 weeks ago from the embassy in south africa that his visa was ready to be issued but they still had to do some paper work,yesterday he got the letterasking him for the passport.
And also even the visa is only a sticker he was told to pick up the passport after 4-5 working days
