Try and get him to see if he can find work between now and then Zoe...something with a contract if he hasn't already got one....that'd help with his application...
he has a job already :)

UK immigration fees increase from April 2013 – Apply Now!


The chief executive of the UK Border Agency Rob Whiteman has announced that he is intending to raise fees for UK visas and immigration, nationality and citizenship applications. There will a huge increase in fees paid by dependants applying from within the UK. The changes will come into force on 6th April 2013 providing that parliament approves them. This is normally a formality. The fees will almost certainly increase from 6th April 2013.​
ch
Mr Whiteman announced that, subject to parliament approving the changes the UKBA fees will rise as follows
• By 3% across-the-board
• There will be a huge increase in fees for dependants. Currently dependants applying from within the UK pay half the fees paid by the main applicant. This will change to seventy-five percent of the fees paid by the main applicant. This will be the same as the fees charged to dependants applying from outside the UK. Mr Whiteman warns that it is UKBA's intention eventually to remove all discounts and to charge the same fee for main applicants and dependants.
• The application fee for applications for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) in the UK will rise by 6% (£60) from £991 to £1051.
• The application fee for an application to register as a British citizen will rise to £673 from £551. This is an increase of twenty-two percent.
• Any European Economic Area nationals applying for residence documentation for themselves and their non-EEA family members will face a fee of £55.​
Premium services​

The UKBA says that it will also be introducing 'premium services' both overseas and in the UK where, for a fee, applicants will be able to get a quicker service.​
The UKBA already operates priority (less than five day) and super priority (same day) services in 25 countries and these will be rolled out further.​
In the UK, there will be a new £275 priority service for some Tier 2 applicants in the UK who would like a quicker service but do not wish to attend the Public Enquiry Office themselves. This service will be rolled out to all temporary and permanent migration routes into the UK.​
Standardised in-person fee​

At present, Mr Whiteman says, those who attend the Public Enquiry Office in person pay a premium to the standard fee of between £200 and £467. There will, from 6th April onwards be one standardised fee of £375. £100 of this will be for the provision of an appointment. If you do not attend your appointment and need to arrange another, your £100 appointment fee will be forfeited. Mr Whiteman says that he hopes that this will help to prevent people missing appointments in future.​

I am getting really edgy over it, I am desperate to start making plans for when he's here but don't want to make them cos I don't want to end up disappointed. My family reckon it's cos the embassy don't want to go through all that paperwork we handed in and keep putting it off.

I just want my man here with me...is this too much to ask?

Sometimes it seems so yes....lol....but it's only a couple of weeks, keep telling yourself that and hopefully you'll get your answer in the next week or two and then you can start making all your plans!!
