Yep, you still need to submit your statements in addition to the online application. You will both need to write your own, in your own words.

My husband and I were asked to write them again before we were approved - no explanation why, but I suspect the first lot got lost in amongst all our docs (we didn't economize our docs well and didn't know of the 60 doc limit).
We wrote basically the same thing second time round but I added an extra in the form of a very detailed timeline with photos, Facebook posts, excerpts from messages, phone logs and emails to each other, detailed info about decisions made about our relationship and the timing, wedding plans, travel plans etc. It was in a table format on a word doc turned pdf and was about 35 pages long. I left no stone unturned and it was a huge undertaking cause I fact checked/date checked everything. I should have done it from the start but honestly we jumped in head first and didn't have any idea what we could/should have as evidence.

All the best on your journey, Kirsty

cec that's brilliant!!

Looks like they may be up to processing October

Jack I'm interested to know what contact they had with you, was a CO given?

Here's to an upcoming flurry of approvals, we just changed our wedding date back to July in anticipation of a slower processing (we were hoping for April and were perhaps a little naive in thinking it would be done in 6 months lol).

He hasn't booked travel yet as we were hoping to be able to coincide it with the visa! All positive stuff!
