My question is about immigration.I am on Minister of Religion visa. II am applying for ILR.One document needed by UKBA is a bank statement showing my wages paid in by my employer..I am paid by cheque and although the transaction is shown ;the name of my employer does not appear.Will that be an issue.the bank does not have this system in place to show name of cheque issuer.
Also i don.t have sufficient documents to show cohabitation with my wife although I am married for 33 years now.Can I include some utility bills bank staement and swear an affidavit etc
Thanks for your question. Please remember to click ACCEPT once you get my answer.

The fact that you are paid by cheque should not be an issue if you can provide a letter from the employer which confirms the cheques paid. Proof such as bills are evidence of cohabitation. An affidavit would help, but they prepare independent evidence such as bills, etc

Hi Thanks for replying.The bank statement issue is clear.As for the cohabitation I think if you could elaborate that would help.


I got 1/water bill,2/ bank statement,3/tv licence and 4/common tenancy agreement


She got a 1/joint bank account statement,2/gas,electricity bill, 3 wages pay slip with address and 4/ common tenancy agreement


It seems they might look for more joint documents or will the ones I have be sufficient.


Thanks for replying.

The documents which you hold would be suitable documents to prove that you have cohabitated - the older the documents are the better
