This is only a condition after marrying. You're probably confusing this with an Unmarried Partner application which requires 2 years of co-habitation in a relationship 'akin to marriage'.
I don't think you need to worry much, tbh. You are married and you're both in-country. I think explain the living situation to the HO as you've done here already, and perhaps provide evidence that your marriage is not one of convenience in order to force their hand in keeping you both here.Johnnycanuck wrote: ↑Sun Sep 16, 2018 9:30 pmHi everyone!
I have my premium appointment for September 28 and am stressing about cohabitation.
I am living in the uk and married my spouse August 17.
We then took a honeymoon and have now started the moving process. The problem is that her letting agency is pretty much useless - 2 weeks after submitting my documents they have not even started the reference checks even though the landlord has given us the okay.
I am now worried that I will have no evidence of cohabitation before my appointment. I have started transferring mail to her address and may be on the council tax. However i think it is unlikely that I’ll be in the tenancy agreement before the appointment at the rate the agency is moving.
I am wondering, how will this affect my application?
Do I need to show evidence of cohabitation for the first flr(m) applications can I just state we live together?
Should I write a letter to explain the situation?
Thank you very much!
It is in the correct sub forum.
