1. A couple of images of you together should be more than enough, they do not need a album of pictures.

2. Show as much as you can, better to be safe than sorry. Some people just show a few screenshots, some decide to print the whole thing off.

3. Good question that, i made sure i saved my wife under her proper married name and nothing else. I'd change the name on WhatsApp and then take screenshots of the conversations and calls that took place. PS. Backup the chat as well just in case. I've got nearly a years worth of conversation on WhatsApp backed up.

Good luck. :)

Just change it to the marriage name - after all you are married now and that's the name that is being used :)

Printed out or screen shots should be fine of your convo. I ended up printing mine out, some of the convos had my husband's name some had his screen name and it was fine.

I think I sent in about six pictures but put an assortment in - like pictures of us together, with friends, at birthday parties etc which I have heard can help show that you've been together for awhile.

I went through this process earlier this year so I have a few comments.

I put about 15 pictures of my wife and I in our application, spread out over a period of time. Of course you need to prioritise the most important moments of the relationship if you have photos!

Regarding WhatsApp/Facebook, I know people who've printed out over 300 pages of convo history (far too much). I basically went for a selection of conversations over the course of the relationship, a few months apart. E.G. Convos towards start and then one every 4-6 months, just one page on each. Didn't come to that many pages. She also had a 'professional' name included on the screenshots at the early part of the conversations on Facebook, I just made a note of it that it was her, and there was no problem as far as I am aware. Maybe best to change though although these conversation histories are easily faked and I don't think they are the most important thing in relation to the application, just a small supporting piece.

One other thing, I know people who've been told not to include photos with kissing in. I guess this relates to close-up selfie kind of photos where there could be some doubt as to the identity of one/both. Best to avoid these if possible.

Just use the marriage name - don't over complicate stuff and stress yourself out. The Facebook name should be fine. As much documentation as you can provide that shows communications between you and the wife will be beneficial to you.
