Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
Thank you so much for all your help and advice. In regards of Child tax credit we thought if my husband earns more than Â£50K we would not be entitled to get it.John wrote:In your circumstances, as explained many times in the Claiming Benefits section, there is no problem one of you claiming Child Benefit, and the two of you jointly claiming Tax Credits.
You have ILR and therefore you are entitled to claim Child Benefit, and you and your wife jointly can claim Tax Credits.Can i claim child benefit and Child Tax Credit on the basis of i have ILR and my son is a british citizen?
the question has already been answered by John. It has also been answered countless times in this section of the forum.sheryar Ahmed wrote:Hi John,
Could you please advise if by claiming child benefit and Child tax credit jointly would affect my wife's visaapplication for suppose of setteled person under FLR(M).
I confirm, yes.My son has been told that once his wife and child join him in the UK he can claim working tax credit and child tax credit and child benefit all this together totals bout 100 pounds a week.
At first glance, no. A few years ago para 6C was added to the Immigration Rules, and it deals with exactly this point. It reads :-My question is will the UK border agency take this amount into account when they apply for the spousal visa because without it his case is very borderline even though he is working fujll time.
In other words, in order to assess whether the financial test is passed or not, it is not possible to take into account benefits that will be payable if P, the visa applicant were to be granted their visa.A person (P) making an application from outside the United Kingdom will be regarded as having recourse to public funds where P relies upon the future entitlement to any public funds that would be payable to P or to P's sponsor as a result of P's presence in the United Kingdom, (including those benefits to which P or the sponsor would be entitled as a result of P's presence in the United Kingdom under the regulations referred to in to paragraph 6B)".
That Â£1040 per month is the gross amount? If so, is he absolutely sure he doesn't qualify for HB and/or CTB? And what about Working Tax Credit?My Son is earning 1040 a month. but his rent is 500 pound and his council tax is 68 pound a month.
He dosen't qualify for housing or council tax benefit
