This is what I will be sending as evidence..if there is anything missing or not needed please do let me know.

.×2 passport sized photos
. Copy of Pakistan nationality card

. Covering letter from my husband bank in pakistan confirming it's his bank account.

Accomadation evidence

. Letter from uncle to say that I have permission for me and my husband to live rent free for as long as possible

Employment evidence - I have two jobs

. × 6 paylsip from my full time job
.×6 paylsip from my part time job
. Reference letters from BOTH employers
. Contract of employment from my full time job only
. ×6 months bank statements ( original through post) showing payments from both employers
. P2 coding notice from tax office
. Employment history letter from tax office

. Letter from PREVIOUSE employer ( which refusal was based on ) confirming i was employed stating start date and leaving date.
. P45 from PREVIOUS employer ( which refusal was based on ) showing I have left employment with them.

The above two points was suggested by a solicitor to ensure that the previous refusal was addressed.

Please tell me what you think about this list. Is there anything I should include or take out. Do you think this will be a successful application based on the evidence? And of course this time I have made my employers aware about expecting a phone call from home office.

I really would like feedback and will help me out greatly.

Many thanks

Layla

I didn't submit my birth certificate or passport. I just submitted the bio photo page of my passport.

If it's your husband's bank account, why does he need a letter confirming it's his account?

Why do you need to prove you have left your previous employment?

The bank statements just come with a standard letter from his bank confirming he's registered with the bank

The last two points my solicitor advised me I wasent too sure about including it either because it might cause confusion. The refusal letter states we could not contact your employer ××××× therefore your employment is not as claimed. My solicitor told me to adress this through the letter and p45.

In case of sponsor's passport please be advised that if you are not submitting the sponsor's original passport, then it is advised that you submit a photocopy of every page of sponsor's passport, even the blank pages.

Rest ,all your documents look good. Yes, do note TB certificate.
