1. Dear Estefania, you will need an income of in excess of £18,600 per year (not including benefits) in order to be able to bring your fiance, or a husband, into the Uk. This is because there are income thresholds in order to bring a partner or another family member in to live in the UK. These income thresholds apply to all people. They were introduced during the first term of DAvid Cameron's Conservative government. The only exemptions would be if you were on disability benefit or were getting carer's allowance. Otherwise, you need to show income above this amount to bring another person in on a visa which will allow them to live and work in the UK. It makes no difference that you are claiming child benefit or housing benefit. The aim is that the person coming in will not be a burden on the State when they arrive. So you would need to ensure your job earnings exceed this figure to bring a husband or partner into the UK from Morocco.
2. I know you have received different advice from two different solicitors. There is no difficulty in continuing to work part time and to claim benefits, but your earnings from the job must be above £18,600 per year. There is no difficulty in claiming housing benefit or child benefit(tax?) and working benefit (tax?) but your earnings need to be above £18,600 per annum from the job.
