Hello,
Your visit visa is treated as continuing until your application for further leave to remain is decided, assuming that you applied in December 2013 whilst your visa was still valid and had not expired.
Hope this helps

how does it usually take the home office to process application.

ive been waiting over 7 months now, what can i do about it.

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Your application is not straightforward, it usually takes 6 months at most and can take up to 12 months or longer in some cases.
You may follow up to see what the status is of your application.
