Hi Aaron, Just wanted to let you know another thing you could also include in your application is a copy from your superannuation showing you have each other as a beneficiary. You can usually get these online from you super's website. Goodluck

Following another suggestion I saw (possibly on the elkitten sticky?), I numbered all my dozens of bits of relationship evidence, in chronological order. I then made a stat dec that was an index to all this evidence - it had the four different headings 'Financial aspects' etc. and under each heading the references to what I'd enclosed & more explanation when needed.

I then used the same numbering on bank statements I enclosed from our joint account. e.g. '#22: utility bill in joint names' => '#22' on the bank statement showing we paid it from the joint account.

I may slightly have a case of OCD

Regarding staples. I was careful to use no staples in all the many forms and stat decs (except where asked to e.g. Form 160). In the relationship evidence I enclosed originals and left them exactly as was, e.g. if a hotel had stapled the receipt to a bill, I left it that way. The evidence was sent back exactly as was*.

Regarding photos, I used 14, I think. I printed them four to a sheet.

Where you have undated evidence or letters without envelopes and so forth, I did let myself include a very few of those if they were really relevant. Hopefully the case officer will see it the same way.

* The London office does return your relationship evidence (and you must enclose a prepaid envelope for that). But policies differ between the offices.

Hi guys,

I put together my application without any staple as suggested here, just nice and tidy and in chronological order and also following the order on the checklist.
I also divided the application in chapters, so there was a paper saying "Medical", "Form 47sp", "Financial Aspect -statement -bills -etc", at the top of each section.

I'm literally just starting to put together this application for my husband, and I'm feeling really overwhelmed by all the stuff we need! This thread has helped a bit though, so thanks.

We just submitted our offshore partner visa about 10 days ago. We finally got our confirmation email. We still need to send in the FBI clearance and medical certificates though, I just wanted to have the rest of the papers there. I ended up just putting everything in the envelope without any clips or folders. I was so exhausted after reading and re-reading those damn forms over and over to make sure I didn't miss anything. I included about 8 or so photos that I printed out. I did the best I could with the application but I am pretty confident that photos of our 5 year old and our newest ultrasound photos should be enough. We have been married for over 7 years so I can't see any real reason that my husband would be rejected. I just wish the wait was over already. I can't stand the thought of another winter in Rhode Island.

I think that's what I'm going to do - just put it all together, in order, and hope for the best.
You'd think that two kids and being married for 5 years would be enough! Fingers crossed.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. Like you, I just cannot face the idea of another winter spent in the UK - I want a proper christmas for my kids this year!! Let's hope it works out for ALL of us

We put ours altogether in a rather bulging folder. All documents were removed and placed in a brown envelope. On the day of submission we received about half our documents back, probably a sign we gave more rather than less than what was required.

I guess the moral of the story here is that presentation doesn't really matter so long as it is easy to follow and everything is in some kind of order. I dont think having a lot of photos is a bad thing, just so long as those photos are different. Theres no point having 100 photos of the both of you in some indiscriminate place. We had photos with both sets of parents, friends, in different cities. It helped tell a narrative. In that sense I think more photos is actually helpful, but certainly overkill is wasting your time - they wont look at them.
