My wife has a 6 year old son from a previous relationship, he is in Colombia and is disable, he suffers from a condition called Procesenphaly, I might have misspelled the word, but he is wheelchair bound, can't talk or walk, needs 24 hr attention. We are travelling to visit her family and see the posibility of bringing the boy back with us, I have a holiday period from my current work in the uk during that time. I am no longer on benefits, I am employed full time, from December 2010 to August 2011 I was on benefits as my employment was terminated in December 2010, since August 2011, I am working again. The benefits I got during the above period was calculated for myself only.
Thanks for the additional information.
From the details provided above, it would seem that your wife would have to undertake an English Test. Failure to do so will result in her application being refused.
Your wife could claim exceptional circumstances, however, this usually relates to the individual and thus any circumstances must relate to your wife in particular and not a 3rd party, i.e. her son.
If she is unable to do the English test, the only alternative is to submit an application and request that the UKBA exercise discretion when processing the application.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.
