Re: Council house tenancy contract

That’s odd. You must be the main tenant in the house and add her as an “occupant”. She cannot be named as a second tenant as that means she is in breach of her visa conditions. Have you explained that you want to add her as an occupant only, not as a tenant? I’m sure you can rectify this fully! Noth...

Re: Universal Credit

No it will not. Her application will get rejected once they assess it and will class it as a single application/claimant (yourself). You must put both of your name and details down as joint application though!

Re: FLR(M) application, claiming childcare element of Universal Credit

Thanks for your reply. I’ve already explored other avenues and the tax free childcare we’ve already used and it isn’t benefiting us much. They only pay 20% of the childcare costs which still doesn’t give us enough income to cover bills or run our vehicles to get to work each month. The 85% childcar...

Re: FLR(M) application, claiming childcare element of Universal Credit

We had no problems on tax credits. Tax Credits was a different type of benefit, different rules, requirements and benefit amounts. For some strange reason, it never was in line with the other low eanings benefits. Now the Tax Credit benefit has ended, this element in the replacement benefit is in l...

Re: Wife no recourse to public funds- As a British Citizen can i Claim Universal Credit

Yes you can. My husband has NRPF but he is still on my application as a joint account due to counting his income, but I only get the single claimant rate for myself as I am a British Citizen. I queried this with UC and they said you still have to add them on your application. They’ll assess it when ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration passport photo query

The passport photos I submitted for my naturalisation certificate are the same as yours. I did not bother cutting the white borders. I didn’t have any trouble. I don’t think they will be that strict. Great thank you. So it does not have to be cut “to size”? Did you send UK size passport or Irish si...
