Joppa, could you please provide your wisdom please?

Questions:
1. Providing 6 months of EVERY page seems excessive. Their requirements state that the same amount on payslip should have been paid into the bank account. So, can i just show the relevant pages of my official bank statement to prove this? Will save ALOT of space and same them time having to go through alot of unnecessary papers.
2. We contact each other via phone, Tango and Viber. I will be providing itemized call logs between us. For Tango & Viber they will be screenshots. Before our marriage, my wife had a different number which is saved in my phone under her name. Therefore, on the Viber screenshot it shows 2 numbers; 1 being my current wifes number which is stated on the application form too, and the other being the old one.
A. Will this cause an issue?
B. Do we need to "prove" that the number belongs/belonged to my wife?
C. Do i need to show call bill/log of calls she makes to me from her house? (I mostly call her as its cheaper for me to call her!)

Please could you check my list and see if I have missed anything:

Introduction letter from sponsor 3 pages!
VAF4 form / appendix 2/ undertaking form, but online form to be completed
Copy of my passport and my parents passport
Evidence of DLA
Marriage cert in urdue and English registered
12 months bank statements for current and savers account where my wage and DLA is shown. I had to order some previous copies of bank statements so a letter of order from the bank is present too to prove they are not fake!
Yearly statement for Santander ISA
An over all letter from building society account with balance
Work contract to prove part time employment
Supporting letter from mother that I can stay in her house free
Land registry
Accomodation inspection cert from local council
Itemised phone bills with calling cards and corresponding number highlighted on O2 bills to prove I used the cards
Vopium bills itemised this is a Pakistan calling package number highlighted I used from my monthly contract
Skype screen shots for every single day
Normal pictures and wedding pictures x15
Money transfer receipts
Spouse original and copy passport / nadra ID card. I'd card is in Urdu though,
Spouse parents copy of nadra I'd card in Urdu
TB test
4 passport sized photos
Biometric awaiting due to English test result delay.

I think that's about it really! If I have missed anything please do tell me

Please can someone confirm does my husband need a police check ? Is that a requirement ? And does he need to write a intro letter like I have and what would he include ?

Sponsorship letter too long - maximum one side of A4.
SU07/12 not needed but if applying in the subcontinent, maybe.
Why your parents' passports?
ISA statement etc only needed if you don't meet the maintenance requirement with income, DLA and benefits.
Far too much Skype. Cut it down. Communication evidence no more than about 10 pages.
Money transfer receipts unnecessary.
In-law's NADRA not required.
Only two passport photos.
No police check.

Basically you have far too much and your evidence isn't focused. Cut down on waste and concentrate on how to meet specific requirement, such as maintenance.

Still provide the full statements. 30 pages etc will be fine.

Just keep it simple. Give samples of call records and screenshots for every 6-month period. Just explain with a cover note about numbers.

Iv got the ISA account in there to show savings. I don't know if I meet maintenance. That's why I'm showing as much savings/money I have.

I get 313 pounds monthly DLA and have 50,000 pounds in savings across 4 different bank accounts.

I'll try and cut the letter down but has all important info.

I will reduce Skype also and take out access ID Cards of his parents

You need to show that you have 113.70 left over each week after paying rent and council tax if you are applying under adequate maintenance. You need to figure that out and only include bank statements if necessary. It's not helpful to throw in a lot of unnecessary documentation.

You must know if you meet the maintenance requirement and you must attach your calculation how.
Add up all your incomes - DLA, other benefits, tax credits, earnings. Subtract rent and council tax. You must have at least 113.70 left a week. Do you?
No letter of sponsorship needs to be longer than one page or 1000 words. If it's much longer, they probably don't bother reading it. It only needs to cover relationship history, factors that make your relationship sustaining and close, any special circumstances you wish to explain (but only if it's relevant), future plans and why UK is to be your destination. Don't use redundant or flowery language, such as 'engagement was the happiest day of my life'.

Can you help with canculation ?

I recieve 313.00 a month and no rent or council tax I will be moving in sisters house owned by mum live for free so how shall I put that ? Plus 50,000 savings. Is that adequate ? When I apply I will not be in employment so can't include that income as contract will be ended until September when new academic year starts and I look for work.

If DLA of 313 is all you get (Are you sure? No tax credits, no earnings, no other benefits, no student grant?), then you don't have enough. As for rent and council tax, in your calculation just state you don't pay any of those. 50,000 savings equates to a weekly income of 261 over 30 months (length of the visa minus 16,000) so you have plenty.
