I came to the United Kingdom in 2001, as the wife of a British citizen. Unfortunately, I was not aware that I had to apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain before the expiry of my 12 months VISA. In 2006, the Home Offices raided my address and I have sice been signing on at the Home Office in Leeds. I have a four year child, who was born in the UK and I am living with my husband. In October 2006, I applied for Indefinite Leave to Remain. I received acknowedgement from the Home Office. I have had no response and my application is on a waiting list. How long is it going to take, as my husband's British Passport and other documents are with the Home Office?
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am rather disappointed at your lack of response, but not surprised! I would like to remind you that you are under a duty to respond to my request, under the Freedom of Information Act.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am still awaiting for your response. I am awaiting for Indefinite Leave to Remain. It has been over two years now and I have had no response; despite several phone calls, letter from my MP and most recently a letter from my solicitor. I would like to reiterate that I am in a subsisting marriage with a British citizen and I have a child aged 5; who is a British citizen.
I woul like to know why is it taking so long to grant me Indefinite Leave to Remain, in a straight forward case like mine?
