      Relationship Details - List or Story format?

      Hi all, Just a quick question for all those that have completed a Partner Visa Application :- For the letter about your Relationship did you do it in letter/story format or just list all the events in your relationship e.g. first met, engaged, married, children born etc.? Cheers

      We did it in a story format, basically explained how we met and when, when we decided to move in together, and how we lived together (chores etc).

      About half an A4 page from both of us was sufficient.

      Cheers Leigh - that's very helpful. You would think that when the see we've been married 20 years there'd be no more to ask!

      At least your partner will receive permanent residence straight away as you meet the 5 year requirement.

      Sorry to ask stupid question, but whats the '5 year requirement'? I have only just realised that having been married 8 years is not enough and we will still have to 'prove' our relationship but I wondered what this means, we will be going for permanent residency too.

      OOh that's new to me - i knew there was an option but didn't know there was a time limit thought it was just up to the CO. Just one last question did you put in about any health problems as I've had a one or two to put it mildly!! I don't want it to scupper them granting a visa for my wife a i have controlled health problems.

      Everyone has to apply for a partner visa regardless on how long they've been together, but the difference is if you've been together for 5 years or more (or maybe 3) then the partner can be granted a permanent visa as opposed to a temporary 2 year visa that leads to permanent residency if you haven't.

      I think they're more worried about your partners health over yours. It's better to be honest, and as you already have PR it shouldn't affect anything.
