Hi Sheilae,

If we fill up the boxes do we still need to provide statement in the attachments?
Good question! This is exactly what I'm wondering. I've posted a thread about it but had no answers so far. The statement will repeat a lot of what I've already answered in the boxes. But I've decided to do it anyway to be safe.

So it depends on you. I had long statements and edited them down to the boxes, with the last line being "In the attached documents I have included evidence to support the above statement" and then for each of the boxes I have a pdf with photos or bills or whatever to fulfil each category. The first page of each PDF is a 'cover letter' of what the file contains and notes which bits of the statement that photo or whatever is evidence of.

People seem to do it a number if different ways, so I don't think there is a "wrong" way (apart from not having a statement at all/providing any evidence to back it up), but I imagine a CO would appreciate you being concise and to the point.
Thank you, this is excellent advice. I have done a visa for the U.K before and it was a lot more specific in the checklist about what was needed so I think I find this free styling a bit daunting. I like the way you did it and I'm going to use that!

So, just to clarify, it sounds like you did include a signed and dated declaration/statement from yourself and your partner (which you attached to the application) as well as filling out the boxes? Many thanks.
