Currently doing the same thing.

Your evidence looks very, very strong.

Hi RMikey,

Your evidence sounds good to me too. I can only compare to what I had and it's very similar (I got 309 approved on Monday).

Has the internet bill bill both your names on? The only small thing that stands out to me is maybe you could add some more evidence to show how you shared finances. I highlighted items on bank statements where we transferred money to each other for bills or food shopping etc as well as having a couple of bills that had both our names on. Perhaps also a few photos of you both together with each others families or friends? I don't think they want loads but maybe a handful if you had them.

I hope that helps somewhat. Best of luck
