Default FLRM Successful - Standard Appliction

First of all, thanks to all who gave their advise and gave guidance in my spouse visa extension. I have learned a lot from this forum


I want to share about my application, hopefully this can help. I’m not an expert , but here’s what I did



FLRM standard application

Timeline:
Online applicatoin : 13 April 2019
Biometrics : 27 April 2019
Grant letter received: 17 May 2019, 5yr Route

Some points to ponder

•applied on my 30th month in the UK minus 28 days

•online application

•answer questions carefully, and truthfully. You can create your online account and save it as you progress until you are ready to submit

•gather all evidences , scan in low resolution, each file shouldn’t exceed 6MB

•upload documents in Sopra Steria website, and upload documents in the correct category

•availed the document checking facility 35 because I cannot view my uploaded documents at that time. Apparently, now you can see a preview

•booked biometrics with the earliest possible appointment date available (paid 100)

•arrived 30mins earlier than my biometric appointment, and they assisted me right way

•they only checked my passport and appointment letter, but I brought all my originals just in case they need to verify any document

Evidences submitted:
•scan of passport for applicant and spouse (all pages including blank pages

•birth certificate of spouse (sponsor)

•brp

•cohabitation documents , we provided more that the min. requirement of 6 joint bills since we moved houses

•accomodation requirement
-reference letter from sponsor’s parents
-tenancy agreement
-house deeds, mortgage

•employment
-certificate of employment
-payslips with covering letter stating the payslips are genuine
- P60
- bank statements
**in our case we submitted 12 months since we misunderstood the question asking about being paid “same amount continuously, above financial requirement “. We answered not the same amount continuously, above the financial requirement cause we thought this literally refers to the amount we are paid (we got a salary increase recently) . However, I now learned that this question actually refers to the interval of how you are paid , i.e. monthly, weekly, fortnightly

•English requirement- I submitted my B1 certificate

•Marriage certificate

•consent letter

•letter of declaration

•proof of travel (optional) but we submitted all our tickets for our holidays ; I also made a spreadsheet of my travels outside the UK as a reference so this was easy listing down all my travels


It’s a stressful application, but its a relief that it has been granted. Now time to gather evidences for ILR. Good luck to everyone and thank you to everyone who has been very helpful.
