Re: Childs first british passport for non british mum and British dad

My case is very similar to yours. Since you are a visitor you will probably need to pay the NHS fee for childbirth unless you already have NHS number. You don't get free use of the NHS because you have an NHS number. All that number is is a link to the patients health records. She will have to pay ...

Re: CHILD TAX CREDIT & SPOUSE VISA EXTENSION

Since £18600 is not classified as low income, therefore it stops the eligibility for public funds. Only child benefit which is around £20.70 per week can be claimed by British/ILR holder parent on child behalf in his/her name as long as the income doesn't go up to £50000. The £18,600 was based on t...

https://www.gov.uk/universal-credit You could try asking your local council if they would reduce your Council Tax becasue you have cut your working hours, but it would be up to them if they will do this.

Although Universal Credit will be fully rolled out in jobcentres by September 2018, moving people on existing benefits to the new system will only begin in July 2019 and be finished by March 2022.

His concern is that because he was out of work for so long and had no income (lived off savings) he will fail. Ah, just read this.

I've read that if you have settled status you don't need to prove your right to reside and or pass HRT.
Where did you read that? Even British citizens have to pass the HRT for benefits.

Could't find how to edit... he is now actively looking for work! Perhaps because he just found out that he has to work for the Universal Credit benefit? He will have to do a lot more than "actively looking for work" - he is extected to work. Universal Credit has sanctions of up to 3 years. He won't...

I have never worked in the UK and have been supported by my husband all this time.
A UK state pension is based on our own contributions only. When you find a job, you will start to contribute towards a UK state pension by paying National Insurance Contributions.
