Hi Vickivickii,
Appeal went well,was only asked a few questions about refusal and then the judge said based on the evidence he has heard the visa will be granted (hooray!!!!!) just needed it in writing,so back to waiting again.
Wishing you all the luck for the 5th November.

Yes just claim JSA in your name.The only thing you can have in joint name is tax credits all other benefits in your name only.It will not effect her status.

So long as you claim the Housing Benefit and Job Seekers in ONLY your name that is no problem.
You are also entitled to the tax credits but that has to be done in BOTH names and is actually not classed as "public funds".
hope this is helpful

That agent doesn't understand a ring ceremony and he is going on about walking round a fire because that is the important factor of a hindu wedding,but like it has been said so long as you have the certificate that should be fine.

Sorry just noticed you are applying for fiance visa,obviously he won't be allowed to work till you are married and changed to a spouse visa so job offer will not be necessary.

Yes it probably will go down because your working tax credit will be based on both your incomes .
I am in simular situation that i have the tax credits but to strengthen the case i have provided evidence of a job offer for when my hubby returns,this can only make your case stronger. Good luck.

Hi, as far as i understand it you are allowed to claim housing benefit for yourself but not your hubby.
The main question is will your have to resort to additional public funds? this is what they are looking at.
