Thank you Geoeng,
1) I do have original bank statements, except for two months, so for those ones I am going to use online ones. The rest of them I scanned individually. If you do not mind me asking, did you scan all your bank statements (as an example) as a single file or each statement was uploaded separately?
2) I have scanned both passports (quite large files), but do not want to confuse a caseworker, so I might need to add a couple of lines in the cover letter then.
3) Do you know what is a max file size than can be uploaded?

Kind regards,

Wherever possible I tried to keep everything in a single file or broke it into the smallest number of parts possible, but I don't think you have to do this if you name the files so it's easy to follow. I just thought it would be harder to miss or forget something this way, but an argument could easily be made that individual files are easier to follow. Just logged in to the UKVCAS website to check and the maximum file size allowed is 6MB (anything over that will be rejected). They advise scanning at a lower resolution or in black and white if you are having difficulty meeting that file limit, or break the file into smaller chunks.

Geoeng thanks a lot for your helpful answers.

Have you received your BRP already? when you submitted?

I applied on 21 July, went for biometric appointment on 9 August, received a letter saying visa was granted dated 13 September, and received my BRP a couple days ago.

Oh well done! Congratulations! :)

I am uploading documents at the moment to the website and I have noticed a requirement “Evidence of where Mr xxxxx other parent lives - such as utility bills”.
This evidence requires provide utility bills for myself (as other parent of xxx is myself). The question is, it does not say for what period utility bills are have to be provided. I have scanned utility bills covering last 6 months. But not sure if any loner period is required since it is not specified.

If anyone can shed some light into this question, it would be great.

Dear forum members,

Thank you for all your help with my wife’s application for FLR (M),
It was submitted on the 25th of Sep and she attended biometric appointment on the 5th of October in Croydon, London.
Since then we have not heard anything from HO, not a single email or phone call. Is it usual? Shouldn’t have we received some sort of communication?

No, unfortunately after you apply you won't receive any communication until you get a decision or if they require additional evidence. It's a stressful wait but waiting is all you can do. Usually about 8 weeks from the date of application for applying within the UK. The FLR(M) timeline thread on this forum can be a rough judge of when you can expect a response.

You were right geoeng,
We received a letter last week confirming that my wife had been granted 30 months extension of her spouse visa. The letter was issued precisely 8 weeks from the date we submitted FLR (M) application online. We are so happy!
Thank you geoeng and seagul and other forum members for your help and advices!
If anyone got a question that I can help with please post it here.
