should we submit the whole bank statement ( 4 pages mostly) or just the front page where it shows my name and my wife's name plus the account and money that we have in our statement?

thanks guys. good luck to all of us.

front page is fine.

remember to include SEVERAL statements, spanning the duration of your marriage though.

thanks for the reply.

ok ill be sending just the front page so that my packet would not be so thick. i will include several statements, maybe at least every four months.

again, thanks. God Bless us all.

Showing multiple banking is quality. They can see activity on the account over time which helps establish an ongoing marital relationship.

It's good to hear you only needed one statement but your other evidence could have been the ones that solidified the approval. We'll never know.

Play it safe and send in a range of bank statements epoy2.

Agree that you should send more than one. But don't overwhelm them. I sent 6 bank statements covering the last 2 years since we got married and opened the account.

Quality is indeed important, but in this case I think it is important to submit at least a couple of statements per year.

I sent one statement from each quarter of the years involved - one of the four from each year was the full statement showing all of the activity on the account and the other three were just the identifying page with both names and the account summary. I sent a full statement from different quarters for the three years involved, and also highlighted on the full statements where the mortgage payments, utility payments, car loan payments and insurance payments came out of the joint account.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
