I am preparing for my UK spouse visa application. Is there a minimum amount of time between me printing my official bank statement from the bank and submitting my application? I know I need to prove that the money's been in my account for 6 months and it's actually been in there for 9 months now, so I'm clear. But can I print a bank statement on the 15th of July then send in my application on the 20th of August, for example?

While there is no specific minimum time frame, statements and other documents need to be proximate and current. Submitting an application with documents obtained within a reasonable time, a few days or weeks, is perfectly acceptable.
