I'm in a bit of a mess and I am starting to get a bit stressed about student finance...
On 19 June I completed and submitted my online application, providing details of parents' income etc. On the last page it said I may have to send in documents proving household income and divorce. No address is provided here and it put me under the impression that this proof is requested and is not needed (unless requested) for a full application to be correct.
Am I right in believing this or will I have to send photocopies of the Decree of Divorce, Tax Credits, Child Maintenance and Child Benefit without them requesting it? When tracking my application it says "if you have not provided all the necessary information or documentation your application will not be covered by the Guarantee" which scares me! However, the website also says "We can’t finish processing your application if we are waiting for supporting documents. Please check you have sent us any documents requested, for example, a P60, a copy of your child’s birth certificate or a copy of your tax credits letter." They have not requested any documents yet so can I assume I met the deadline?
Directly from the application:
We have received your application and will send you an award notice soon... The 30 June guarantee date only applies to correctly completed applications. You may need to send documentation to support your application so please check the table below for examples of evidence we need.

TLDR: Do I need to wait until my Award Notice before I send the documents? Will they request them in that?

I have noticed that the website isn't always accurate in what it says. There's a lot of contradicting information and problems with the application forms. I'm just hoping that the award notice comes through correct the first time so that I don't have to go through a lot of hassle to (hopefully) get the money before my course starts.
Ps: just noticed that, despite having the correct course title on my application, the course code is for the wrong course - superb.
