Default Uk spouse visa..need options

I am new to forum so sorry if i am repeating questions.
my husband lives in uk we got married in 2014 and he came to visit me once only in 4 years due to some of family problems.now we want to apply for spouse visa i want to ask will this 4 year gap effect our application or what supporting documents shall i provide to prove relationship?
What reason shall i give for this late visa application?

You’ll need to provide an explanation and any evidence you can to support your claims. Without knowing more it’s difficult to give you specific advice but only one visit in four years is likely to raise doubts about the validity of your relationship.

You've said the reason for the absence was family problems - if that is the real reason then that is what you give details about.

You could make something up but giving false information is never recommended.

As said, being apart for 4 years, considerable reduces the validity of your relationship.

All that sounds good but you’ll need evidence of the ‘problem’ that kept you separated for so long to go with your written explanation. For instance if was a family member’s ill health then that would be doctors letters or hospital records.

Does he have evidence that his salary has been too low to sponsor you for the last four years?

Yes because he was self employed so he doesnt have payslips but his company where he registered can confirm this plus his bank statement will show this..

There is no way to guarantee a successful application based on the information you have given.

You will just have to provide what evidence you can give of a genuine relationship and hope that is enough.

If the application fails I would suggest you start visiting one another more frequently to build up a relationship,

Why did YOU not visit your husband all this time?

Was yours an arranged marriage?

If i say that i made reason for late application eg i ll say that we had nikah ceremony in 2014 and then he went back to uk and he came in 2017 and we have traditional wedding rukhsati according to our pakistani culture.this will be reason to cover 4 year gap we had.
any idea that will it work?

As above, you MUST tell the truth. You’ve now given us three different reasons, are any of those the genuine reason or are you just trying to find something you think will be accepted?

As somebody else has asked above, why couldn’t you visit your husband?
