Hello all, in final process of submitting app & just got a little confused on Part 4, 4.11-4.15...since it follows the questions regarding my parents I thought it was asking about my most recent ex that i divorced over 20 years ago...it reads spouse/partners name, nationality, ect...is it asking about my most recent legal divorce or my FIANCE/PROPOSED CIVIL PARTNER in the UK???
Also, wondering if there is a time frame restriction between submitting on line application & sending in hard copy app with other documents...for example if i do the online app tomorrow is there a cut off 2 weeks, 30 days, ect that i have to get all supporting paperwork to them via mail?
Thanks for your help & sure i'm over looking & freaking out here

If you aren't married (i.e. single and engaged), you don't answer those questions and go straight to 4.16. VAF4A is a one-size-fits-all form and is used by many different categories of people, such as married, engaged, in civil partnership etc.

30 days from submitting online application to sending off your supporting documents.

I thought it was 90 days from when you complete the online application

"your online form will be valid:

until your appointment date, if you have booked an appointment through Visa4UK and you have a visa appointment reference (VAR) number; or
for 90 days from the date when you submit it, in other circumstances. We cannot accept your form after this 90-day period, as the data will have been deleted. You will need to complete a new application if you bring an expired application form to a visa application centre."

Rules have changed since my original reply last May.

No. Your husband, the applicant, has to apply online in Pakistan, then get biometrics done and submit documents at visa application centre (there are several in Pakistan).
