Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
Are they intending to move to the UK for good?
can the husband meet the income requirements - £18,600 a year, and can the wife pass the English Test?
My apologies - we are all working lawyers and I had a meeting all afternoon and into the early evening
Part of the requirement for a Spouse visa is that
"you intend to continue living with your family member or partner in the UK after you apply"
Given that there is currently no such intention then it will not be posisble to apply for a Spouse Visa in the circumstances you describe.
However if they were setting up a second home in the UK and the wife was intending to spend the majority of her time here then this would suffice
Please ask if you need further details
All the details are here
the fee is currently £1,195 and the average response time is 12 weeks
You are most welcome - I hope all goes well
