FLR(M) Correspondence Dates Help
« on: January 16, 2020, 06:57:49 PM »
Hi all,

Just a quick one - I entered the U.K. on 29 May 2018 - how should the dates on the correspondence that proves my husband and I live together be spaced between my entry date and the time I apply for FLR(M)?

Thank you!

No, they should go backwards 2 years from the time you apply for FLR(M).

Thanks larrabee - so just to confirm - if I apply in Feb 2021, I need evidence that goes back from Feb 2019 - Feb 2021? Even though entered the country 8 months prior to Feb 2019?

Yes. That's the ideal. It's not an exact science though so you can afford to be a couple of months off from that as long as the spacing is as even as you can make it and you have the correct amount of items of mail.

Is there a guidance note / pdf that specifies exactly what is required for FLR(M)? I can’t find anything online from gov.uk

Unfortunately there no longer seems to be a separate guidance note for FLR(M). What information there is is contained within the online form.

The requirements are essentially the same though as for the spouse visa. You need to provide evidence of meeting the financial and accommodation requirements exactly as before, only the relationship requirement is a bit different. For that you will your marriage and any divorce certificates and your correspondence evidence.

Be aware that although the online form does give you a list of required documents, this may not in fact be correct for your situation. Often it seems that vital documents are not listed as being required. So if you are not confident of what to include, just post your list here and we can let you know if it's ok.
