Good evening


Your spouse can claim any welfare benefits that they are entitled to. However, it would need to be shown in your application that they can adequately accomodate and maintain you without recourse to additional public funds. I would have thought that along as their income is around £700 per month after rent/mortgage payment and they have some savings that this hurdle will not be too difficult to jump.


Clearly, your application needs to include as much supporting documentation as necessary to prove that you can meet the Immigration Rules.


Hope that helps. Kind regards
