Re: Stamped bank statements from an online bank..??

For my wife's ILR application last year, we just used statements uploaded from her online banking platform (HSBC). They seem indistinguishable from paper statements and were accepted.

Re: FLR(M) SPOUSE VISA - ACCOMMODATION QUESTION

Yes, we did ILR last year. We used the council tax bill as one of our documents to prove we live together (in fact it was the only letter in joint names!) but it was not asked for specifically in the...

Re: FLR(M) SPOUSE VISA - ACCOMMODATION QUESTION

Re: ILR-supporting docs

Brilliant news, I know how you must be feeling !!! Interesting that it took three months - my wife's ILR took five months without priority (May to October 2021), so even better news for you.

Re: When to Apply FLRM, Maximise ILR window

Just to mention that when my wife got her FLR in 2018, she was given 31 months from date of approval, which perplexed us. I called to check and was told that the case officer can give more than 30...

Re: Question about cash savings

I just looked back at my wife's spouse visa application in 2016. We used cash savings, the situation was a bit different from yours since we used funds from a pension policy that I cashed in, but we...

Re: FLR(M) : shared financial responsibilities

That wording looks fine. Don't worry, this forum was a big help for us at the FLR and ILR stage, so don't worry! We did it all ourselves, initial leave to enter (using savings), FLR (salary) and ILR...

Re: FLR(M) : shared financial responsibilities

I looked at my wife's FLR application in September 2018 (I think the question is still the same now), she answered "yes" to the question about shared financial responsibilities and she replied to the...

Re: ILR-supporting docs

We scanned every page of our passports (plus her previous passport which had her entry stamp). It wasn't much extra work to do and that way we knew we were safe. One tip - don't do what I did and...

Re: Need advice for FLR application

For the proof of cohabitation, nothing was signed or certified. As regards bank statements used to prove income or savings, we submitted our statements with no certification either for ILR. I know...

Re: Need advice for FLR application

Just on your latest question - for FLR (and ILR), we only had council tax in our joint names. We send this, plus 5 documents for each of us. We chose a range of senders and spread evenly over the...

Re: Which Life in the UK textbook do you recommend?

Re: Brand new spouse visa

Just to reassure you again. For our spouse visa (my wife is Chinese, I am British), we did not have one single document in joint names - nothing. And I had no UK documents in my name. We submitted...

Re: Brand new spouse visa

For my wife's first visa, we had no documents whatsoever in our joint names, and I didn't have any UK documents in my name either apart from my UK passport, so don't worry.

Re: Indefinite Leave to Remain successful

Thanks so much ! I was wondering when you would be doing yours, we found ILR the easiest to do - not just because you get used to it but it just seemed to go more smoothly in every respect. Best of...
