Re: Youth Mobility Visa & claiming carers allowance

Thanks for the link, would it not be an exception due to me being a citizen? He would be the one claiming public funds and that is not allowed on his visa. You can claim benefits for youself, but you can't take extra benefits for him. As you have found out, his earnings/savings are counted for some...

Re: Brexit court defeat for UK government

I was merely seeking to make a point in regards to Petaltop''s statement. It is obvious from your anti Britsh rants on here that you don't like the British, and I have said that to you before. Why travel thousands of miles to get to the UK and more to the point, then ask if you can stay if you don'...

Re: Brexit court defeat for UK government

Bit late for that now. My ancestors were Huguenots not to mention Celts also Scots, Irish. No doubt Romans, Vikings. Probably Saxons and Normans too. Same here too i would imagine. :) But the last few posts on here (excluding yours) have been more like children in a infant school playground, hurlin...

Re: Brexit court defeat for UK government

It is our country and we must learn about it. It is not our country, it is their country and we travelled here and asked if we could stay. I'm finding it hard to come to terms with immigrants who move to a democratic country, but then don't want democracy. The vote to leave the EU was a democratic ...

Re: Need Help With Understanding Some Stuff

"You won’t need to prove you have this money if you or your partner get certain disability benefits or Carer’s Allowance, but you’ll need to adequately accommodate and support yourselves and any dependants." So would claiming ESA/PIP mean that if my girlfriend and I were married abroad, or at least...

Re: EP to investigate plight of EU nationals seeking UK PR

Can they make another EEA country grant citizenship? I thought EU law ended at PR? The old men running the EU seem to be finding it hard to come to terms with the fact that they will no longer have a say in the running of the UK. Or are they worried these people will end up in their EEA country afte...

Re: Claiming benefit for brit, wife can't access public fund

Just as an aside, are you aware that you can claim WTC & CTC as long as these are claimed in JOINT NAMES and Child Benefit in YOUR NAME ONLY, without affecting your wife's future visa applications? :idea: He won't get WTC as he earns too much. The poverty cut off for CTC with one chld is about 26K,...

Re: Housing Benefit problem

Council tax allowance is a different benefit area to housing benefit with the council, so inform them both in writing. The same with any other benefits you claim, if you need to. The addresses can be found on each different benefit award letter. If you are of working age, then at some point you will...

Re: Need help with visitors visa

I am not asking about heathcare, we lived in the Uk for 5 years and know how it works. You left in 2012. The NHS changed from 6 April 2015 under the Immigration Act 2014. That Act changed who "ordinary resident" is for NHS purposes, as in, ordinary resident for free use of the NHS. Have a google on...

Re: Need help with visitors visa

Children can come when you can afford to secure correct visa for them, with healthcare. Budgeting for health care is not an optional extra as who knows what can happen and when. Exactly. That's why I suggested that the wife (the visa holder) sees if she can get one of those very long term interest ...
