Checked the online tool at work and it's all filled up..we have the visa. It was approved at 23.35pm on 9th September 2008.
Just off phone to hubbie...seems we're off out tonight to celebrate.
I phoned up aspc this morning and the young guy was really helpful and I explained about my police checks and that surely they would be enough as I've resided in Scotland all my life. He said he'd speak to my case officer as he sits right next to him in the other office.
Dunno why I checked just there cause I knew the office would be shut..but stone me..the part about the "penal clearances" said "met"...and thought I'll check the entitlement details and there it was..all filled up.
I CANNY BELIEVEEEEE IT...soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy...nowt getting done at work now!
Hope it all works out soon for everyone..they're defo moving now..happy days
