Would not having paid off my student loan cause any complications for applying for my wife's spouse visa?
It shouldn't, personal financial circumstances like that are largely irrelevant to the requirements that must be met.

Re: Partner visa cash in hand calculation

Hi again, I just have a question about what other evidence we could provide to prove our cash-in hand income. From Apr-September my partner did not place the money in their account, but had been doing so onwards. We also have a record of all of the cash she has in taken. Would we be allowed to use ...

Re: Change of name after marriage

As far as I am aware, the visa will be issued in the name shown on the passport and this is what the application form will ask for. Also keep in mind that if you apply using an old surname and then change it, you will also have to apply for a new BRP within 3 months of the change.

Re: FLR, Spouse Visa - Advice Please

I got all my bank statements stamped and I’ve scanned them, but the stamp looks a bit faded and in some cases you can’t read the whole thing. It’s clear enough what it is and is there on every page. Is this good enough or should I get them stamped again and re-scanned? I’ve got the originals now so...

Re: What if you don't meet the financial requirements for the extension?

Just out of curiosity, please can someone clarify the consequences if the sponsorer loses their job 2-3 months before the extension, or just doesn't have a job for the full 6 or 12 month period or if the salary is below the required threshold? Is the extension no longer applicable? Does the applica...

Re: Cash Savings Using Stocks & Shares ISA

The lawyers view is that because there is semi colons in the following, it is three different options and thus stock is fine The semi-colons are there because it is a list of lists (i.e. the first sentence contains a list separated by commas). That view would neglect the fact that the last item in ...

Re: partner visa income calculation

We’re combining incomes, mine under Cat B and my partner under Cat F. They have earned around 9500-9600 from Apr to Apr. If we take my apr to apr, you’d arrive at around 11k. However because I changed jobs in December near the end of my employers pay period, I was only paid for one week. If we take...

Re: FLR M extension financial category

Per Appendix FM-SE, the requirement for Category B is to provide "payslips covering any period of salaried employment in the period of 12 months prior to the date of application if the person has been employed by their current employer for less than 6 months" and not 12 months worth of payslips.

Re: Spouse Visa Extention - Financial Requirement [Unpaid Sickness]

My question is, does unpaid sickness impact what category we could apply under? The only difference between eligibility for Category A and B is length of time employed by current employer. As long as you have both been employed by the same employer for at least 6 months, you can apply using Categor...

Re: UK Residence permit and marriage

If you intend to be outside the UK for any great length of time, it might be an idea to consider applying for British citizenship (which would have zero impact on your US citizenship). This idea amuses me after all the effort the US went to in order to become independent from Great Britain, one can...

So do we just check it and then provide the one piece of council tax evidence?
Doesn't seem like there's much else you can do really. Maybe make it clear in a cover letter that you're applying for FLR(M) for the first time from a finacee visa.

Re: Fiancee visa approved - next application advice

Would simply the signed tenancy agreement be enough for this? Both of our names are on the agreement and my bank statements would reflect the rent that we've paid for the past 2 months. Should be sufficient if both your names are on it and you are the only ones living there. We will be getting a le...

Re: D-Marriage CP standard.....now married, what next?

If you applied for a fiancee visa, this has the same application cost as a spouse visa, is valid only for 6 months and there is no "'other' 24 months". You would now have to apply for Further Leave to Remain (FLR(M)), which would then be granted for a period of 30 months.
