Hi,

What nationality is your daughter please?

Is your daughter employed at a salary above £18600 per annum?

Kind regards,

Tom

My daughter is british and is pregnant ,her boyfriend is Albanian and lives in Albania. He wants to get a visa to come to the uk. No she doesent earn that much as she is pregnant,which is why i want to know if my husband can be his sponser. My husbands income is around £85,000 per annum.
Thanks

Hi

Thanks for your question. I will try to help.

I’m afraid that the financial requirement for a spouse visa prohibits parents from also acting as sponsor, which means that the financial requirements must be met by your daughter own personal assets/income.

You would not be able to act as sponsor as such.

However, if you are of sufficient means that you are able to gift your daughter £62500.00 then she her fiancé could apply for a fiancé/spouse visa once she had held this money for 6 month. She would also have to hold the money throughout his spouse visa or until they have sufficient income to meet the £18600 per annum salary threshold.

If you were minded to gift the money to your daughter for this purpose then I would attend a local solicitor to execute a Deed of Gift confirming that the transfer of money is a pure gift and not a form of loan as you would need this for his application.

Sorry that I could not have better news for you.

My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back. Please remember to leave positive feedback using the stars at the top of the page.
