Indefinite leave to remain waiting for decision story ILR-0009

This story is based on one of the applicant of Indefinite leave to remain (ILR)
He has been waiting for 8 months... Still waiting...

'Dear all,

I've been getting some flak from my employer over the unreasonable waiting times the UKBA is taking to process my ILR application, submitted in October 2008.

I have not been able to get through to them at all on their 08706067766 number despite calling them several times a day for the past few weeks. Calling them on the number JD suggested (01142072966) has the operator referring me to the 0870 number and suggesting that I try to call them after 2pm. I am not sure the line is even manned.

My work requires me to leave the country regularly (on average people in my division go abroad once a fortnight) and being unable to travel abroad since October has made my employer irate. Being unable to give him a timeframe of when my ILR application would be approved has only made things worse and he hinted that if I can't do the job then he will find someone else who can. Obviously this is very distressing for me.

As such I have been thinking about withdrawing my application and losing the £750 fee. There is no point in me staying in the country if my employer gives me the sack so one bird in the hand is better than two in the bush.

Can I ask what documents would be required to withdraw my application and how long I can expect to wait from writing in that I am withdrawing my application to getting my passports back?

Will all the original documents I sent be returned to me or just my passports?

Will withdrawing my application affect my future ability to apply for ILR?


Note: He intend to cancel my ILR application due to urgent personal matters. He had already tried contacting my MP to speed things up but MP does not consider my case to have sufficient compassionate grounds. He have waited for ILR since October 2008.
