To avoid the confusion that's been arising from having FLR together with the out of country applications,  here is a separate thread for FLR(M) applications.  :)

Please feel free to jump on board with your timelines.

Perfect! Thank you Beatlemania, I've edited the post to include that information.  :)

Hello,

I submitted my FLR(M) application by post on 06/06/17 and my biometrics enrolment at the post office on 30/06/17 (the machine was out of order the first 2x I went in  :(
 ). We simply could not afford the in-person appointment as much as I wanted to. Does anyone have an idea how long by post applications are taking these days? I don't suppose there's a way to check with Home Office by email or phone call? I probably just need to be patient and the documents will get here when they get here.

Usually takes no more than 8 weeks.  Another member just received hers back in 26 business days!  Definitely worth it to save money.   :)

Plan on 8 weeks but usually it's closer to 6. 
I found the wait far less stressful than for the spouse visa.  :)

I did a postal in Feb. before the fee increased.

Posted it Feb 17
Biometrics invitation March 3
Request for missing Bank statements: April I think?
FLR approval received: April 11

My letter from them said they wouldn't be able to do it in the 8 weeks from the missing docs.
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

Hi Noelville,  Thanks for posting your dates.  :) Are you getting the decision made info from the application tracker?

Next, you'll get your Biometric invitation letter. Once that is out of the way the best idea is to try to forget all about it until you get your package back!  ;)
