Attaching documents and police checks - Offshore partner visa

Hi guys.

My wife (the applicant) and I have submitted out applications (47 and 40sp) online and are now adding the documents. I notice on each of our "applications" there are recommended documents and a maximum of 60 docs that can be added. My wife has added many of the importnant documents as part of her attachments so far and is running out of room in her 60.

I have a few questions

1) is it 60 attachments each?
2) Am I (the sponsor) required to add the same important documents that my wife has (marriage cert, evidence of joint lives, messaging conversation etc) or can I use that space to add ADDITIONAL attachments such as additional photos or more conversations (obviously along with my ID documents
3) As part of my sponsor form I confirm some details about my wife (her name change etc). Evidence of name change is listed as one of the recommended attachments, even though she has already provided this in her attachments, should I also add it?

Additionally, I was not asked during my sponsor application to provide information about countries I have lived in (which appears on the paper forms). I have obtained police checks from the countries I have lived in for the past 10 years.
4) Do I attach these now or will that be requested at another time?
5) If so, when? I would have thought it was part of the application.

Thanks a lot!

1) 60 each

2) Immigration will look at all evidences as one application. No point adding same evidences. You add additional/different evidences instead.

3) No

4) Regarding police check in countries that you have lived in the past 10 years, only required from the applicant, not the sponsor. It is not necessary to submit, however, since you have it, you can attached it now.

On the attachments, you should try to maximise it for example combine files, photos...since you have 5mb size per file. That is what we did for our applications. We end out submit around 45 files in total.

You should also try to submit a complete application. That will help to faster the process.

Thanks very much for the reply. Can you just clarify what you mean in the last paragraph though. Submit a complete application? The applications were complete but now we're just adding the attachments

Thanks again

I have a couple of extra questions:

1) In my wife's eagerness to add her documents, she didn't add the translations of her Brazilian National ID or her police checks and now she's reached he max of 60. I've added them to my list of attachments, but will that be ok?
2) In my list of "recommended documents is the "40sp" form. Is that not the same as I filled out online? Do I also need to print off the form, fill it in and then scan and upload? Seems like duplication.
