How long have you and your wife been married?
Thanks for the additional information.
If you have been married since December 2009 and wish to move to the UK, your wife will need to apply for a Spouse Visa before moving to the UK to live permanently.
In order to submit a successful application, you will need to prove that you can accomodate and maintain yourselves without recourse to public funds.
If you are currently not working and have no source of income, you will find this difficult.l However, this does not mean that you cannot submit an application. Provided you can prove that there is jobs available for you to apply to when in the UK and you have sufficent means to support and accomodate yourselves, you should have a reasonable prospect of success.
In response to your questions, yes you can submit the application before you obtain employment, however, whether your application is successful is another matter. In this instance, you would be advised to obtain details of jobs which are available in the area you wish to move to.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.
If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.
