Looks good to me. Just make sure that correspondence is evenly spread over the last 2.5 years.
Are you going to upload anything to support "Other reasons to stay in the UK"?

Cheers. Yes correspondence will be evenly spread over 2.5 years.

In regards to "Other reasons to stay in the UK"? what would you suggest? My wife's main reason to stay in the UK is me, she does work, however I didn't want to submit anything about her work incase it confused matters. Should I?

We really did not upload much in support of Reasons to Stay except our adult children’s birth certificates! It does not really matter if you meet the requirements.

Don't include anything related to her employment if you rely solely on your (sponsor's) income.

Other reasons may include children, (we included birth certificate, passport, etc) for our child as a reason for me to stay

Sorry to just jump in this post but I will have a similar question when it comes to Other reasons to Stay' as I do not have any children and my husband and my job is my only reason. Would that be enough?

Thank you.

Are you not asked to supply your marriage certificate?

Actually, marriage certificate is not mentioned anywhere in application form. I have (and i know other applicants did too) uploaded marriage certificate with my application.

ILR online application form does not ask for marriage certificate. There is a question: "what is your relationship status", but neither guidance at the end of application, nor the checklist asks explicitly for it
