With regards XXXXX XXXXX child support income I have found this on the UKBA's website from the form it states their staff use to determine whether the applicant(s) meet the financial requirements.
From the infomation i can gather from it it says that we are able to use her child support to meet the financial requirements to bring her and her two children over.
The form is "Annex FM Section FM 1.7: Financial Requirement" and is dated october 2013.
6. Non-employment income 6.1. Category C: Non-employment income – requirements 6.1.1. The following are examples of sources of non-employment income which can be counted towards the financial requirement: Property rental. Dividends or other income from investments, stocks and shares, bonds or trust funds. Interest from savings. Maintenance payments from a former partner in relation to the applicant or to the applicant and former partner‟s child or children dependent on and cared for by the applicant. UK Maternity Allowance, Bereavement Allowance, Bereavement Payment and Widowed Parent‟s Allowance. A maintenance grant or stipend (not a loan) associated with undergraduate study or postgraduate study or research.
Does the right to work get granted with the marriage visa if we apply for the from outside the uk? or is there another piece of paperwork we would have to send off for before finding her a job when she lands in the uk with the marriage visa?
One last question hopefully.
with regards XXXXX XXXXX the subsisting relationship, stating that we have to provide proof of living together and a joint financial responsibility.
Would this count against us since we can't or would it be beneficial to fly her over before we apply for the visa and set up a join bank account or something of the sorts that shows both our names on the paperwork like a bank statement or a utility bill?
Thank you very much for all your time.
