I have a tier 1 post study work visa, but due to the new points system it isn't renewable because I am 10 points short due to not making more than £25,000 a year.
I have about $2500USD in savings in a bank in America, he has no savings hence our problem with money getting away from us.
We are staying with family/friends in hopes of being able to save enough to get enough for a deposit for our own place and get back on track for our wedding. I do not know how much he will be able to save each month now that we aren't paying rent, but I suspect in a couple months he should have a few hundred pounds.
No, he is already working overtime as it is at his current job.
No, he is already working overtime as it is at his current job and is very stressed as it is because of our finances.
I do work, for a temp agency, it's just not permanent. As I said, two companies want to give me full time positions but said they need my visa to go through first.
Also, with my part time job, we have both made more than the salary threshold (I've made a thousand or so), but I have only had this job since November.
Sorry, just one more quick question to clarify then I'll rate.
If we apply under the partner visa, between what I have made this year (around about £1200), and his £17900, we should be okay with the financial requirements for the partner visa, even though I am only working part time for a temp agency and only have done for a couple months?
Thank you. Sorry, this is all just very scary and we don't want to just go to city hall and have a quickie wedding for the sake of me staying here.
