Thanks for your reply.
As I'm allowed to work, can I show that I can earn £18.600 or does it have to be my British partner?
Also, if my visa expires in December, how early can I apply to renew this visa ( i.e 3months in advance )?
How long is required to show proof of income for the second application (2.5 year renew) ?
Is it 6month or 1 year?
