How to make footnote to follow text?

Hello, I am having one problem. I have this assigment to do in latex, and I got the margins for whole document. I have this:
`\usepackage[left = 22mm, top = 30mm, right = 28mm, bottom = 22mm]{geometry}`

And I did whole assigment with these margins, but now I noticed in assigment that my teacher gave me is that on some pages, footnotes are not following the text. What I mean is that page number is on good position, but footnote is higher. How to set my footnotes to follow the text, so they begin when my text is finished.

any options?

Try adding `\raggedbottom` to your document. This is my best guess though, without a minimmal working example nothing more can be said.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Footnotes should follow the text by default. If you would actually mean that they should stay at the bottom, you can try this, together with `\raggedbottom`:

`\usepackage[bottom]{footmisc}`

Try `\setlength{\skip\footins}{0pt}` or any value that you like.
