Hi

 

We are going down this route and just got a case officer last month after a waiting time of around 12 months. The waiting time for a CO for the 173 is the same as the waiting time for the 143. There is a useful tracker here set up by someone who posts on here and has the CPV:

The waiting time for a CO has recently speeded up from around 15-18 months.

I am assuming you are aware that your daughter needs to be 'settled' and that you need to pass the balance of family test?

 

There is a Parent visa thread which is a sticky at the top of this forum so if you have any more queries you can post on there and there are lots of knowledgeable people on there.
