Does owning a house here in the UK count toward the financial requirement?
Just to clarify my visas, my first visa, issued in March 2004 was in fact a spouse visa, the subsequent two were the NATO/ SOFA visas, would I have to return to the USA or could I just apply for a new spouse visa in Liverpool like I did in 2004?
When I first came here in September 2000, I was the American Army assiigned to a US base here in the UK on official orders. I got married to a UK citizen in September 2003, I got out of the Army in March 2004, howver I wished to remain here in the UK to work as a Contractor at the same Base.My wife and I went to Liverpool to get a VIsa and they issued me a spouse Visa, limited leave to remain for two years, I got hired in as a contrator 6 months later and was then given a SOFA stamp in my passport. Since then my subsequent visas have been the SOFA affiliated ones.
So I couldn't get another limited leave to remain visa through my wife by applying at one of the UK Border Agency centres here in the UK. Even though I am currently residing in the UK.
