You have covered everything here.In some cases you are providing more than is required.

The SU07 does not from part of the spouse visa application,nut for some reason everybody sends it

Hi,

Thanks for the fast reply. We thought too much would be better than not enough :)

How would you recommend submitting the screenshots then? My wife and I have a WhatsApp chat history dating from April 2014 to now and we were considering a screenshot of every month or is that overkill?

Also are there specifics to what is required in the screenshots...names, numbers etc?

Thanks,
Shaun

Looks good.

On the screenshots: we submitted a variety of dates with short or partial conversations. (We left out the goopy bits :D .) We submitted Skype transcripts for probably 7-10 dates, about a dozen emails, phone bills (again a selection), and a lot of photographs.

Hope this is helpful. Good luck!

I want to ask one question here..

If a person is applying with category A, is it necessary to provide P60??

They don't ask for it but it doesn't hurt to include it. I'm always quoting the moderator here who said "better to be 200% prepared for the Home Office".
Good luck!
