So glad I stumbled upon this forum because Google can only help so much.
Anyway a little backstory, I'm Indonesian passport holder and I've lived in the UK since 2008 (student visa, another student visa, then PSW which expires in 03/09/14 XD) and I've been with my boyfriend for almost 6 years and we've been living together for 3. He's a dutch passport holder but he was born and bred in London. So I'm applying to extend my visa through the FLR (M) as unmarried partner. If I'm wrong please correct me. However, I've been reading around the forums that if at any time there's a 'gap' in our living situation that that would not look good on the application? We lived together on years 2010-2011(Nottingham), 2011-2012(Leeds), and 2013-2014(London). The gap of 2012-2013 is because I graduated my masters and he still has to stay and work in Leeds while I bounced to London in search of a job. Although for about 4-5 months he did relocate to London and stayed with me but he didn't forward any of his bills there so there would no way of proving us living together.
So in regards to evidence, do I provide documents for all the times we have lived together and specified that we lived in separate places for one year or just provide documents for 2010-2011 and 2011-2012?
Additionally, I desperately need some clarification on the items of correspondence. We needed at least 4 items with both our names AND 2 separate items each stating that we lived at the same address OR 6 separate items. yes indeed? And they would have to account for 2 years? Would one tenancy agreement count for one item? so two tenancy agreements for 2 flats would count as two items of evidence right? or one because it accounts for us living together for 2 years? We also have council tax and utility bills together (dont remember where those papers are but can always call the gas/water company). so would gas bills at 2 properties (accounting for 2 years) count as one? or two?
Do you see my confusion!
I greatly appreciate any sort of useful information and help.
