Default 6 letters of correspondence and other reasons

Hi Everyone,

This question is in regards to the 6 letters on correspondence for SETM ILR.

We obviously have fished some out but does anyone know if these need to be from 6 seperate sources?

It doesn't say so but I seem to remember that this was a requirement on the intermediate FLR.

Also, on "other reasons to stay in the UK". My wife has stated about the active relationship with our 3 year old son (naturally we all live together) and she is his mother with him all the time. We also speak about the death of our 10 year old daughter in April and how we want to remain together to support each other through this time, we live close to the school she attended, the hospice and that we have just bought a house and my career etc.

But it asks for documents supporting this. We have a letter from our son's pre-school confirming his place there and our address and also we can upload a death certificate for our daughter. What else could I provide and should I, particularly in relation to our son? Maybe we could pose for a picture outside the house.

The correspondence has to be from three different official sources. I don’t know if this is stated on the form but it always been the case and I have not read of any changes to that.

As to other reasons to stay here, this is only considered if you do not meet the requirements. Some people don’t even fill it in. However, I would think that what you intend to write and the documents you propose to upload are all acceptable. All we uploaded in support of wanting to stay here were our children’s birth certificates and passport bio pages. And they are adults!

Hi Whatshouldwedo,

Is Council Tax acceptable do you think?

I only ask is this is also under a seperate section I think.

I think you could use it twice if necessary.

Yes, certainly. Lots of people do. You could theoretically have an assortment like:

June 2017 - NatWest statement
December 2017 - Council Tax statement
June 2018 - NatWest statement
December 2018 - NatWest statement
June 2019 - Yorkshire Water bill
December 2019 - Council Tax statement

Stupid question, but in relation to clarifying sources, does anyone know where the guidance notes are? it used to be a separate .pdf in the same place as the application .pdf, but I haven't been able to find anything on the UKVI website.

I thought I remembered someone on here saying they'd found it, but can't remember where.

No official guidance notes any more. They've tried to put all the guidance in the online form itself...
