Hello sweety, thanks for all of your helpful information. In our case it took just over 4 months for our application once it was received in London. I hope that your husband's application is processed soon, have you tried calling them for an update, I called their general info. line once and asked for an update and they actually gave me one, also many times I sent them emails and they always reponded within 10 days with an update thru email.
Hope you get the good news very soon!
Please Happywife can you please give me the phone number that you used? I would really appreciate it.
