Useful best practice case for practitioners still dealing with old-style maintenance cases, particularly where the sponsor is in receipt of welfare benefits of some sort.

Claiming WTC in JOINT NAMES won't affect your wife's visa application. Housing Benefit can only be calculated as a single person, not as a couple. Do you have a child/children living with you?
