UK Immigration Law

we believe I have eligibility because we have been married for 26 years, have two children who are UK citizens and my husband has just now relocated from the US ( as a retired UN staff) to take a new job in London--which he has done as of a couple of weeks ago. We have rented accomodation in which he is living.
I have stayed back in the US to finish packing, etc. I have accompanied my husband and children ( one of whom is still in university in Scotland) many times over the years.
I didn't understand the distinction---I believe we applied for the "regular" spouse visa--ie, for 2.5 years or whatever.
My husband more than meets the financial criteria but has worked for the company for a month only.
Would it help if he were to include documentation of his pension income from the UN job?
The appeals info sheet states that a hearing is not always necessary--do you think it might be likely that the problem could be resolved with submission of all the relevant documents?
The appeal form does not ask for my passport--do you know if it is required or not?
And are you sure I cannot visit the UK under the normal rules, ie, as a regular tourist? Then go back to the US and wait?
