the president office of polish goverment had received my application on November 2008
I hope someone with similar experiences sees this thread and help you.
In the meantime - some less useful general informations (which may not be correct, as I'm Polish by birth, so it's all based on what I heard/read about such cases).
They should answer you, the various administration organs have different maximum times to address a complain/demand etc. Normally it's 30 days (they have to start
processing your application during that time, when they will finish is another problem), I guess the president office has more time, but after 9 months they really should be able to at least inform you what's going on.
Unfortunatelly, it sometimes requires personal presence and if you're abroad and don't speak Polish it might be difficult (if you can afford a lawyer, such help could be useful, he/she could at least keep in touch with you and inform you about any progress with your application).
There are 2 procedures, the slower one for acquiring Polish citizenship in case your dad had to give it up.
The faster one is only confirming (it's applied when your parent(s) or grandparent(s) left Poland, but never waived his (her, their) Polish citizenships).
In some countries the immigrants could/can gain dual citizenship (country of origin + new host country), in other places you have to renounce your original citizenship to gain the new one (and if such was the case of your father, you won't be confirmed as a Polish citizen, you will be treated as a foreigner and you'll have to deal with all the requirements for foreigners).
I remember there was a thread about what is required to even apply for a Polish citizenship (you must stay in Poland for a minimum period of time, or be married to a Polish citizen and of course you must submit all the necessary documents in a prescribed way, if you don't do it, they may simply reject your application as incorrect), use the "search" function and maybe you'll find something on this forum.
