It is a long wait, my whole timeline from fiance app. to receive Biometric Resident Permit was 12.5 months. When your fiance arrives don't forget to add her at least 2 or 3 official documents like Council Tax, Phone, Electricity, Gas etc. You'll need proof that you live together at the same address....

Bringing in a spouse is extremely difficult if you don't meet the finacial requirements. You could submit 6 months of earnings, but may be asked for audited accounts or tax returns for the business. This would mean that the business may have to operate for a year to prove you have earned the 18600 p...

A fiance visa is fairly straight forward. You should check if you meet the following as the more evidence you have the easier it will be to succeed. 1) How long have you been in a relationship. 2) Do you have evidence of this. Records of skype chat, photos, plane tickets. 3) Have you ever lived toge...
