Default Biometric Appointment tomorrow - please review Spouse Visa Document list

Hi,

Would be grateful for last minute checks incase i need to email anything across. Thanks:

Applicant:
Applicant introduction
Online application form + appendix 2
Old and Current passport
2 coloured passport photos
Marriage certificates
English language certificate
Provisional confirmed flight itinerary Aug 2014

Sponsor:
Sponsor introduction
Biometric passport stamped copy
Finance
6 months payslip
6 months bank statement with bank stamp showing 6 months wages
P60
Letter from employment saying how long i have worked there and my earnings
Employment contract
Basically doctors in UK have 1 year training posts - current one ends August 2014 so i included my confirmation email of my next job as a doctor for 1 year from August 2014 - August 2015

Accommodation
Deeds to flat which show my mother's name as owner
Letter from mother which is witnessed and stamped by solicitors giving permission for my wife and I to be the sole occupants indefinitely of the 1 bedroom flat until we are able to buy our own accommodation. No inspection as we will be only people living and the price of flat is mentioned in deeds (expensive)
Council tax under my name (currently living in said flat)
Contract from solicitors showing i have made irrevocable 6k deposit on another 1 bedroom flat (under construction)

Relationship
Skype log from Aug 2013 (beginning of relationship) - April 2014 showing near daily conversations for lengthy periods of time.
Flight itineraries Aug 2013, Dec 2013, March 2014 and Aug 2014
(copy of passport pages which show visa stamped on those dates)
Pictures of my wife and I in Dec 2013 & March 2014 (including small marriage ceremony with family)
Hotel confirmation of deposit for large wedding ceremony 31st of July.


Basically this took a lot of time to compile and i think i have been thorough but would appreciate help from the experts.

Regards,

It looks pretty good but you are missing your marriage certificate.

You don't need the contract from the solicitor showing you've made a deposit. They only care that you have adequate accommodation set up right now, not what you're going to do in the future.

You also don't need the hotel confirmation for your party. You're already married. That's all they care about, not that you're going to have a celebration at a later date.

Limit your Skype logs to 1 or 2 pages for every 2-3 months. They don't need to see that you've talked every single day just that you consistently kept in touch whilst you were apart.

Sorry where i've written marriage certificate under applicant info includes 1 original Arabic copy with both our names and an official translated copy again with both our names. I just put it under applicant section but should i move this to relationship section?

Thank you regarding the unnecessary extra content. I included a lot of Skype as i was worried we would be lacking in this department as this is only way we communicate with each other when apart.

Regards

Sorry, I missed that. I would put it in your relationship section but it's not a big issue.

Additionally, there is now a question about the applicants employment so if she is working in her home country she should include proof of that: a pay slip, bank statement showing pay, contract, letter from employer.

No she did some voluntary work earlier in the year but i told her not to include that. Would it affect our application if she's "unemployed" as long as my wages are above the threshold?

If she was employed her income would not be included for meeting the financial requirement. The question is most likely there just to get some background on the applicant. If she's not working, just answer no.
