Has anyone ever had any issues due to filling out the forms in Ink rather than on a computer?

Any advice on this would be much appreciated

I have never heard of this. I know the fact many people I know have filled the forms using ink. If it is legiable and easy to read, then you have no worries.

I did filled the whole thing out on my laptop. Hassle free and a lot neater than ink... in my own little opinion. But it doesn't matter at all as long as it's legible just like MK&SA said. Good luck!
