I'm also preparing my spouse's documents. I saw some forums say that the correspondence should be spaced out generally evenly. (Not quite sure how evenly they mean.) It also isn't very clear to me whether the correspondence meant to prove cohabitation should go as far back as the start of the BRP (i.e., 30/33 months) or just over the past 2 years.

No 'of course' about it.

If you apply under Cat A you present 6 months of financial documentation; if under Cat B you present 12 months
