In this webinar, we cover specifically the financial requirement which is the most predominant of all five requirements. Introduced in 2012, it requires the UK sponsor to be earning at least £18,600 to sponsor their partner with a further £3,800 for the first non-British child and £2,400 for each additional non-British children. We touch upon the variety of different income streams that are allowed and cover the evidence requirement for the most common income streams: employment income and savings. We also outline the possibility of sponsoring your partner if you are on certain benefits.
The six-minute overview is insufficient to fully discuss all income streams, combinations allowed and evidence required. Further information on the law can be found within a schedule to the Immigration Rules called “Appendix FM”. For information of exactly which evidence should be provided for each category, refer to “Appendix FM-SE”. Both schedules span to around 48 pages of text and contain ambiguous terminology which can be confusing to navigate. Our family migration team is at hand to help provide tailor-made advice for your individual circumstances.
If you missed our first webinar, where we provided an overview as to the visa types available and general requirements involved in bringing a loved one to the UK, you can view that video here.
