What to put on supporting statements?
 
How long should the supporting statement documents be for our Spouse Visa?

What kind of things should we included? I've put how we met initially and his first visit here 6 months later and am starting to add bits about times we've spent together (with dates/timeframes) and what we did/family & friends we met of the other partner and a bit about how much we miss each other and need to be together. And also put a bit about thank you for reviewing our application etc.

Should it be in the form of a letter, with address included and perhaps email address and phone number?

Thanks again.

Thinking back to my letter to support my husbands application five years ago, it was in letter form as you say. It included a brief history of our relationship and how we met the requirements to support ourselves, financial and accommodation. Include reasons why you want to live in the UK. Don’t make it too long and not too emotional. They are not really interested in how you are feeling! We did not thank them for looking at the application either but I’m sure we put that should they need any further information, we would be happy to provide it.

Thanks, that's really helpful! Do we both have to provide these statements? I guess he'd have to put his views as well. It's cheaper here in the UK for us and not as hot as Australia so that's a couple of reasons eh. I have quite a bit of info in mine but perhaps he can use some of it for his statement.

yeah. keep it simple. dont write a romantic novel. 1 page should do it. just introduce yourselves, how/when you met, where you lived together, future life in the UK etc.
