FLR(M) Waiting Times

FLR or Further Leave to Remain is an extension of your existing permission to stay in the United Kingdom for a specified length of time. FLR(M) is an application for an extension of stay as the husband, wife, civil partner or unmarried/same-sex partner of a permanent resident.

In this 63 page thread (629 replies) members of the site discuss FLR(M) waiting times. The thread dates back to October 2008 and continues to get replies well into 2010. Waiting times span from 2 weeks to 7 and more.

The original poster anniewheeler says:

Dont know if anyone can give me any advice on this... I entered the UK with a fiancee visa in May and my husband and I were married in July. I sent off my FLR M form on August 20th and they charged me on August 21st. It now been 7 weeks and I have heard nothing! I thought it would be pretty straightforward considering I had permission to come to the UK to marry and settle here!!! Anyone have any idea how long this should take?

Of course the home office wont answer any questions!!! Very frustrated....... Thanks for any advice

BTW, if you're interested, Annie finally got her FLR(M) on 11 October 2008 (52 days after submission), just over 7 weeks.
