Relationship evidence documents for extension of spouse visa

Hello My wife is due to extend her spouse visa (FLR(M)). I noticed the form requires documents as evidence of relationship.

Can I leave the UK while my application is still in process? I want to leave the country for a while and come back when the approval letter has arrived. Is there any problems with this?

Filling in absence from UK on NA form

After submitting the form, I realised that I filled in over 5 years of absences on the form. I should have listed absences from 2008. However, I listed absences from 2007, which is the last 6 years. But the total absences do not exceed the limit.
Would this be a problem?

Thanks

Re: Good character requirement and convictions

If a person has a spent conviction, does it need to be declared? According to the form, both spent and unspent convictions must be declared. However, the UKBA website says spent convictions do not need to be declared. I am very confused. Also based on the new rule, if a conviction is not yet spent,...

I was for kerb crawling.
I contacted a law consultant. He told I did not have to put the fact in the form as the HO would not check if I apply in person.
Is that true?
