hello. my husband is going to apply for indefinite leave to remain in NOVEMBER 2013 he got his visa oct 2011. we have two children and one due in November 2013. he works part time earns approx £900 gross pcm I work part time earning £700pcm I am due to stop work in October. I have also been getting housing benefit (as a lone parent) as I was told he can't have access to benefits. my working tax credit is due to stop before we apply but will still be getting child tax credit for our children. my benefits was same when I applied for spouse. . I am extremely worried that this will affect his visa application for ilr. please advise???also do I need to show 3 months statements for this? or just complete amount on form.. as we currently have 3 months statements for where our salary goes?
Im abit confused as im being told hr should be on my tax credits as a couple even though hr cant get working tax credit.. And same with housing benefit .. Is this something they check to see if he is added ? Inever added him as I assumed he couldn't be on my benefits jointly... im not sure if I should add him now or not before we apply as im still down as single?
He has all bank statements, payslips, .. .
Just reading on the internet it seems people have joint claims while hubby is on spouse. I was worried it would affect his claim if im on my benefits alone as i never added him on as thought i couldn't . What actual checks do they do on the day? Will they contact benefits etc as this is what's stressing me the most now.. I thought if he is working is fine. Anything i have is same as if i was alone as never changed it. I planned on changing after when I know he can get working tax credit and add him to housing benefit after so if any deductions will be made up with tax credits.
All sorts of things happen but I have to advise based on what you should do. I'm not sure I understand what the problem is though. If you have claimed benefits solely on your entitlement then you have done the right thing. I think you might be thinking there is a problem where none exist. You do not need to add him to your benefits and you absolutely should not do so until he has got ILR.
