Hi all,

When applying for leave to remain as an unmarried partner, I know they ask for a minimum of 6 items of correspondence covering the two years of cohabitation.

My partner and I only have a few items of correspondence addressed to us jointly such as joint tenancy agreements, council tax bills. Therefore, would it be best for my partner and I to submit an item of correspondence each addressed to us individually for every month of those 2 years? Is providing as much evidence as you can the best way to go about this? Or is there a limit to how much you can provide and do you risk annoying and confusing the ECO?

Thanks in advance!

Does that mean 12 pieces of evidence is the maximum number of items of correspondence you can submit (all 6 addressed individually)? Does this also mean that there should never be more than a 4 month gap?

Do you think it's worth providing more evidence than the requirement to add more weight to my application and in case a piece of evidence "fails" as good evidence?

No. The application gives examples of acceptable sources. Stick with those sources. Throwing a bunch of stuff and hoping for the best is not the way to go. You need evidence from official sources like utilities, council tax, bank statements, GP, NHS, HMRC.

Ok, thanks. Are letters from local council/local authority acceptable? Such as letters to register to vote?
