Hi,Thanks for your question. If I have provided you with an answer, kindly click ACCEPT.
Based on the very limited information you have provided above, the issue that you would always have to address is one of Maintenance. If the UKBA believe that you cannot adequately support your Partner without recourse to public funds, the application will be refused and you will have to Appeal.
Generally, it is easier to marry the foreign Spouse i n their home country and then submit an application for a Spouse Visa as opposed to a Fiancee Visa.
If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.
If I have answered your original question, kindly click ACCEPT.
If you do not, I do not get credit for my time.
I would not advise you to come off pension credits to assist with rent and Council Tax.
Disability Allowance should not increase as a result of your wife being allowed to live in the UK. If it does, this will adversely affect your application.
Your fiancee will be able to work after she has entered into a marriage and obtained a Spouse Visa. On a Fiancee Visa, she will not be permitted to work at all.
I would suggest you do nothing at the moment and attempt to marry. Once you are married, you will be able to submit an application based on the information you have provided above.
Provided you can show that you have adequate means to accommodate and maintain your partner without recourse to public funds, you have a good chance of having the application granted.
If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to ask further questions.
Hi, Thanks very much,
Just one more question and I will be happy to accept your answers.
What in your opinion/government policy opinion would be an acceptable amount of savings I personally need to have, bearing in mind that you have said that my wife could take up a job offer.
Also would my wifes earnings lesson my benefit income?
Hi, Your last information letter is a little ambiguous.
Can you please confirm that I should stay on benefits and also prove I have £800 a month in addition to satisfy immigration or can I include what I receive in benefits towards the £800 + use of savings?
Yes I can confirm that. If you stay on benefits and you r benefits do not increase as a result of your partner joining you, you will be fine.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click ACCEPT. Kind regards,
Hi, To be completely clear on this subject. I can stay on benefits, but do the benefits count towards the £800 income needed. I also looked up Uvovo, but could find no reference on the internet.
