Default Appeal time frame

Hello
I'm from Pakistan, being refused my UK spouse visa settlement application last year in April, then we appealed on 19th May and got the Notice of Pending Appeal on 25 July. The ECO was given till 7th Nov to review the case, I emailed them after this date they then replied that the ECO has not overturned the refusal decision so the appeal will go through the normal appeal process and we ll have to wait for the Hearing date from Court. Now its past Mid February and till date we haven't heard anything from them, whenever I email them they reply the same that wait for court hearing date.
Now I want to know how much more we have to wait? We submitted our case last year in February so it's been a whole year. All this is getting on our nerves 😂
Anyone from Pakistan having some experience with the Appeal process ? Any help would be highly appreciated. ANY CLUE abt how much more we have to suffer .
Thanking you

-visa timeline: submitted on 9th Feb 2016 , refused on 27th April 2016

-reason for refusal: the ECO didn't believe that our marriage was genuine and he didn't believe that my husband works for his company.. Lame reasons

-appeal lodge/acknowledgment date: 19 th May 2016

-payment taken date

-date appeal noticed was received: 25 July 2016

-review deadline: 7th Nov 2016

-court dates: Still waiting

Whenever I email them I get the same reply that wait for hearing dates as they're busy,,, its been a whole year since we applied and it was our second time so all this wait is taking the toll on us!! We have been married for 3 years and still living in different continents bc of all this visa trouble 😭

-reason for refusal: Manager didn't answer call as was with a customer. On call to me just the ONE question which is the more important one they said was vague which was my job description but how the ECO spoke to me anyone would mix up their words. But the funny annoyed thing is, the Receptionist answered the office number and confirmed my role but only the manager who couldn't answer but they failed to put that in the notes they said they called the office number and no contact was made and they also said no reason was given by me why i didnt travel to Pakistan to see my husband even though it wasnt that long since we applied!!!

-appeal lodge/acknowledgment date: have not yet sent off awaiting doucments

-payment taken date:

-date appeal noticed was received:

-review deadline:

-court dates:

Ur refusal is similar to ours 😭 They did the same with my husband office calledthe manager and kept on asking odd lame qs while hes was driving the manager explained that he couldn't tell exact dates as he's driving not in office he didn't have the register with him but they didn't bother and just refused and it was our second application!!! Feel like dying!! Been 3 whole years

Plus one more question;
Can we apply again while still waiting for the court dates? Our solicitor said that if we want to do a fresh case we'll have to take back the appeal?

Yes the 15 weeks starts from the letter on the date... We should roughly hear if we have been successful in late April early May.

Good luck with ur new job x
