Default SET(M) - Sponsor's Children: Tricky online form

I was going through my online application without a hitch until I came to add my step-children (my sponsor's kids) to the form. It asks who the other parent is (my partner's) then who the mother is. It wants a utility bill from her, which I feel a bit weird asking for and their birth certificates which I think she has but, again, I haven't had to provide those in the past. The questions are also worded awkwardly. Please, does anyone have any advice/experience/success with the online form and their sponsor's children?

Thanks so much!

We decided to just add a cover letter explaining the situation, I don't know what else to do. My wife seems to think referring them to the electoral roll because maybe the UKVI can see addresses there. My wife somehow managed to find a photocopy of her ex as well.

Thanks for that Ken! I was thinking of doing the same if we can't get the documents. How strange that they should add this new requirement at this stage.

More of the hostile immigration policies that the Torries are famous for Just another attempt by the home office to confuse the applicant with vague questions that have no logic to them. The stepson that is still in our home is 18 yet they force you to answer questions as if he were a minor. It makes no sense to anyone on any forum thread or Facebook site.
