I am currently applying for a UK visa. My partner is planning to join me in future as a dependent but this is not certain.
The online application form in the section "People applying with you" asks "Are your partner or children applying with you?". I would have named my partner at this point (with passport number and everything) which I hoped might speed up her application process in the future.
Question: Are there any problems if I mention my partner in this section but she never applies (or only much later)? In particular,
- is there a chance that this will delay my visa application process since they are waiting for my partner to apply?
- are there any fees (for my visa) connected to mentioning my partner or mentioning her but then she never applies?
If neither, is my hope justified that it is a good idea to mention her?
