They have already paid 6 months worth of rent up front in a privately let house prior to their trip next month, however they have very little funds left to survive on, no furniture in the house, no car, no money to pay utilities and will both be unemployed for the foreseeable future. It is highly l...

Re: Overstayed spouse visa by 26 days so far, what to do next?

Re: Claiming PIP (meet adequate maintenance) but benefit paid into my fathers bank

Okay so assuming that she is granted a Fiance visa for 6 months, let's say she travels 6 weeks after being granted the visa. When she arrives in the UK will her visa still be valid for 6 months or will it be valid for 4 months and 2 weeks? She can choose the date she wants her visa to start, but on...

Re: Claiming PIP (meet adequate maintenance) but benefit paid into my fathers bank

Also do we need to pay for the Health Surcharge when applying for the Fiance visa or is that only required when applying for the Spouse visa? She will need to have her own private health insurance on a fiance visa to cover any NHS bills as that is a short term visa. 50% is added to the NHS bill if ...

The above was about benefits you might be able to claim for help with your rent, if your relatives are not close relatives. The following is about the rent a room scheme for your relatives:- " Income Tax is payable on rental income you receive. If you’re not in the Rent a Room scheme, you’ll be char...

Are your relatives renting.

If they are renting, are you on the tenancy agreement?
Or do they own their own house and rent you a room?

Re: Made redundant on Tier 2

Can I seek for government assistance or something while I find a new job? Unfortunately not as your visa states no recourse to public funds. The only thing you could potentially claim is contributions based JSA. Now called New Style JSA, but this is only if the claimant has contributed to the UK fo...

Re: 7 Year old boy born in UK

Can you recommend a good solicitor who is brave enough to take this case on board ? Money won't be an issue. Illegally working in the UK was made a criminal offence in July 2016. This allows the government to seize the proceeds of that crime (the wages) as well as the worker facing criminal charges.

We did not receive a request for IHS fee for our older child also born in the UK in April 2015 so why now?
It could be that you need health insurance for your older child too if you haven't paid the IHS for them either.
