Re: Can I claim JSA and/or Housing Benefits while wife is on Spouse visa?

Your title talks about claiming JSA. If you have been working for the relevant tax years you can claim New Style JSA, the new name for what was called Contribution Based JSA. As that is based on working contributions, it's not means tested and does not take into account your or your wife's savings,...

Re: Can I claim JSA and/or Housing Benefits while wife is on Spouse visa?

However, that's all the way in Portsmouth and I live in London. Hence I'm solely going to rely on my NHS zero hour contract job but I won't get regular sh...

Can I claim JSA and/or Housing Benefits while wife is on Spouse visa?

Hi, Long story short. Wife's visa has just been accepted. Been working for NHS for 3 years but I'm one of those who's shift will be reduced to part time after 2 months. Just wondering, after 2 months, can I claim Housing Benefit under my name until I look for a full time job? If so, would this affec...

Emailing won't delay or affect the decision-making.

60 days exceeded for spousal visa, will emailing cause delays?

Hi, My wife applied for her spouse visa from Bangladesh (we had a solicitor to help us with this) and submitted her biometric date on 21st January 2019. It has been past 60 days now (04th April 2019) and I still haven't heard from Home Office. I'm now thinking to email them to escalate it but some p...

Re: UK spouse visa phone interview went wrong

Give it another 2 weeks. I'll be honest, just prepare for anything whether the visa is granted or not. If granted, end of story. If refused, you can appeal or reapply explaining why you have given incorrect answers regarding your 3 different jobs. Get a good solicitor to help you. By the way, Did yo...

Best to fight for it in court which by then you should have audited accounts ready. It'll make it easier for you to win.

Sending documents assistance - Spouse Visa

Hiya mate, I'm going to apply for my spouse visa shortly but I noticed on forums online that all documents must be A4 size. Does this mean for original documents or just the photocopied documents?

Re: Call from Home Office (spouse visa application)

Hi. Do you mind me asking what kind of job do you do? I noticed ECO calls some people if they work for a certain job like for a restaurant for instance. My case is that I do work for a restaurant. Just worried that ECO may call and my manager doesn't pick up.
