There should be a self-employment option in the financial section of the form for you to input those details.
You can provide a cover letter explaining your situation and providing information regarding any children or ex partners.
Due to the nature of your enquiry, please contact us directly through: email@example.com
The date of application is the date in which the online form is submitted. As long as a person submits the application before their visa expires, it is valid and they will not be classed as an overstayer. Therefore, your friend made an in-time application.
You can complete the application form anywhere in the world, but it must be ultimately submitted from the country in which you're applying from.
In terms of the address, this should be the address you are living at when making the application, so, Australia.
Just to clarify, which application have you made?
As long as you submit the application (the online form) before your visa expires then you will have made it in time, regardless of whether your appointment is after your visa expiry.
Thanks for your message.
If you apply for the fiance visa, the Home Office may question the genuineness of it because of the previous marriage visit visa situation. It may be better to get married outside of the UK and apply directly for a spouse visa.
The fact that you did not marry on the marriage visit visa may affect the fiance application and there may be a risk of refusal. If you do decide to apply for the fiance visa you would need to show strong evidence of plans and intentions to marry in the UK and would need to explain reasons for not marrying previously.
For both the fiance and spouse visas you need to show that you are in a genuine and subsisting relationship, that your partner can meet the financial requirement of earning £18,600 annually and you must meet the English language requirement of obtaining level A1.
Your friend will need to demonstrate that she has sufficient funding to stay in the UK for the 10-day period. There is not a certain amount of money or a certain period for which the money should be held to show maintenance.
It does not matter whether you sponsor her or not. Whether you are sponsoring her in terms of funding or whether she is funding herself, the Home Office do like to see sufficient money in the applicant's account in order to show financial ties to their home country.
