888 form written in small letters..

Hi guys,

I have asked 3 888 forms to family & friends, and I have received one in all block letters.

But my father in law must have thought the 'block letter' rule only applies to number 1, 2 (where you put the writer's details and the applicant/partner's details), and he wrote number 3,4,5 in small letters. (Like normal like this "I have know ... She is... )

It is quite neat, it is readable.
But, I reallllyyyyy dont want my father in law to do this again as he is in the hospital and I know how much he put effort on this writing.

As one more is coming through soon, would I apply as it is?

I have not said anything to my father in law,
I just said thank you.

Please let me know if this is a big issue.

- I told him he can type but he's old-fashioned mate who prefers writing.

If it were me, I'd just submit as it is.

3 is already 1 more then the 2 minimum advised, as long as it's legible then I wouldn't worry about it too much, at the end of the day it should be the contents of the form that matters to the visa, not a third party's minor mistake on the format of a form..

The other way you can get round him not writing it again would be to type it up in the format it asks for and then ask him to sign it.

I think we all just typed normally = I meet Adam and Eve in the garden.

Certainly not all in capitals.

I think that was intended for hand written not typed contents. It is hard to determine lower case hand writing as apposed to block capitals.

Thanks so much for considerate replies everyone, he got it certified properly and it is clear and readable so I will submit as it is, and will get one more from sister in law. The rule specified only on top of the left-hand side, so I think he got confused, which is possible. Thank you again guys.
