Cool Good

I think that looks fine. Evenly spread over the 2.5 years from good sources. I'd like to see what a MOD thinks just to be sure but that is very similar to what I submitted.

My concern is that the individual pieces are not from the same month. For instance if you are submitting a bank statement for the sponsor in September 2017, there should be an item from the applicant for the same month. Or has that requirement changed?

Thank you. I didn't realise that individual items for both need to be the same month? Is this a previous/current rule? I can't remember what we did in our FLR(M) application previously to be honest.

They just need to be evenly spaced. There's never been any requirement that individual sponsor/applicant documents need to be in the same month

Follow-up question. We are generally submitting items of correspondence over the past 2.5 years which are spaced every three months. However, a couple of times, some items are spaced two months apart.

Is this a problem? Can't seem to avoid now and then documents being two months apart no matter how I arrange them.

I know the answer to this one: You are fine. If you have that many items between individual and joint address proof, even I can do the math that some will be 2 months apart not 3.
You're good. I think I had larger gaps and smaller gaps depending on the source.
