Yes correct. An astute applicant/sponsor will always be inclined over this option.
No limit. Once you have all documents ready then can proceed to the application even next day of wedding.
If you both are free to marry then a legally performed overseas wedding will be recognized in UK.
No. That is required for unmarried partners or those applying extensions.
There are various discussions and threads which you can search yourself.
Which to me sounds like as soon as we get legally married in Ukraine, (providing she has met the other above listed requirements) she is fully qualifiable for a spouse visa?What you’ll need to prove
You must be able to prove one of the following:
- you’re in a civil partnership or marriage that’s recognised in the UK
- you’ve been living together in a relationship for at least 2 years when you apply
- you are a fiancé, fiancée or proposed civil partner and will marry or enter into a civil partnership in the UK within 6 months of arriving
You also need to prove you:
- have a good knowledge of English
- can financially support yourself and your dependants
Thanks. That's good to know. I assume my regular bank account is fine for this? It's just in my name, and my partner does not have access to it (it's not a joined bank account).
Is there a reason why the first £16,000 is disregarded?
Does joint savings mean a joint bank account?

With above salary if from UK paye employment then there is no need of showing any savings as it is alone sufficient.
Yes you will need a recently dated employer letter giving all key information about your job. Also if you have recently changed the employer then you will have to rely on category B, for which you will need the payslips covering the last 12 months even from different employer along with corresponding bank statements.
Do they have to be 'verified'/ notarised? My bank doesn't provide anything to say that 'this is a legitimate statement' sort of thing.
There is no requirement to notarize. The electronic copy you get should be a replica of what original and covering the relevant period.mythrowaway wrote: ↑Fri May 29, 2020 8:46 amDo they have to be 'verified'/ notarised?

They just send me an electronic PDF where you can see my:
- Branch identifier code
- Account number
- Sort code
- Branch address
- Contact details of the bank
Will this be sufficient? Or do I have to go to a lawyer and ask them to notarise it?
That format & details on bank statements are sufficient
Title deeds, mortgage statement & parents noc (permission) letter should be suffice.mythrowaway wrote: ↑Fri May 29, 2020 12:44 pmAs for meeting the requirements for living arrangements, I am currently residing at my parent's home where there are 2 bedrooms + a living & dining room downstairs. I do not own the property, nor do I pay rent. They have agreed to let my spouse and I stay until we find a home of our own.
What evidence must I provide as sufficient proof of adequate accommodation?
Is a letter addressed from my parents sufficient?
Do we need to provide anything else for the visa?
