Hi Lawyer Ak, thanks for your response. But my points are not not clearedI have two points that I'm not sure of. Firstly, whether VAFA4 Appendix 2needs to be filled in?
Secondly, if part 4 needs to be filled in since I have a child whi is british citizen and I'm the sponsor and he doesn't fall part of financial assessment?
VAFA4 Apoendix 2 needs to be filled out and part 4 must be filled out. Your sponsor needs to fill his details.
