My boyfriend is Albanian and he needs utility bills so I can

This answer was rated:

Hello. My boyfriend is Albanian and he needs utility bills so I can marry him. So he can stay here in Uk. But how can I pay those utility bills? Should I pay in his name and to pay with my bank card or how?
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I am in Croydon
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: Uk
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: And also what else do I need to marry him? Please? Thank you

Hi

Further to your question, he needs to add his name on the utility Bill's but it does not matter who pays. The Home office does not check who pays the Bill's.

Kind Regards

but it is alright if it is only his name on utility bills and our both names on council tax?

Hi

That is fine as long, you both have your names on the council tax bill.

All the other utility Bill's can be on individual names.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
also how long does it takea for him to get resident permit after we apply for marriage?

Hi

Kindly note that in order to marry the council tax bill will be enough. As part of the Resident permit application you can provide as many bills as possible and the Home Office can take up to 6 months to decide the application.
