Post by ali541 » Thu May 01, 2008 6:32 am

Hi to all on the forum. I have a question for anyone that may be able to answer it. my wife has now been inthe uk for just under a month and i was wondering weather there are any restrictions on her applying for work. she is on the spouse visa.

If anybody can help that would be fantastic.

How do I qualify to join my husband, wife or civil partner in the UK? wrote:At first, you will be allowed to stay and work in the UK for two years. Near the end of this time, if you are still married and intend to continue living together, you can apply to stay permanently in the UK.

Don't forget to start collecting the documents as suggested in section 10 of the form SET(M) as soon as possible.

It is important to save all bills/utilities. Try putting the utilities in joint names. That's very helpful to her application. A joint bank account helps. Same for joint tenancy agreement.
