Resolved Question:

Will my south african fiance be able to work alongside me as housekeeper if I can provide the needed £18600? & would it make a difference if we were to marry before or after she begins employment?

Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

How long have you been together and can I assume language is not an issue?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
We have been together 3 years now
We both speak english yes, no issue there.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Although she is a software tester at present in joburg the idea is to marry in a registry office & have her working in the same hotel as myself. I'm already aware of the £18,600 required.

It would be nice to understand how so many asylum seekers manage to recieve all the benefits that that they do, yet my situation is so fraught with difficulty. i mean, we intend on contributing to the economy.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Employment stability I assume is also taken into account. Is there a minimum period of time I need to stay in the same workplace before I could apply to sponsor her?
Expert:  Clare replied 11 months ago.

Provided you can show that you earn more than £18,600 and have done so for at least six months then she can apply to come to the Uk as your partner

It would indeed be better to have married first.

Please ask if you need further details
