Also, I havent yet gotten to the upload stage yet, but is the cohabitation pdf one large file or separated into 6 or mor...

Re: FLR (M)

Are online pdfs of bills to demonstrate cohabitation acceptable or is it must to scan the paper copy?

I have noticed that pdfs of most online bills don’t have markings and barcodes on the left side whereas paper bills do. One can easily tell them apart. Would that matter?

Child Benefit

I am on Tier 2 general for the last 2 years. I am married to a British National. We recently had our first child. She wants to claim child benefit, however I am not sure.

Will that affect any of my future applications? Say if I wanted to convert to FLRm

Thanks
