Is their combined income above £18,600

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I am supporting the daughter here, she 20 and doing UK foundation course here, I am running a business here, I am doing far above 18,600. I need to ask son in law what his income is.
  • Valid passport (Myanmar)
  • Evidence of minimum income requirement
  • Proof of genuine relationship
  • English language certificate
  • Right to live in the country where the applicant has applied from (Myanmar)

Suitable evidence to show a genuine and subsisting relationship

If the couple has been living apart for a lengthy period of time, or have never lived together, prior to submitting a spouse visa application, suitable evidence of a genuine and subsisting relationship could include, for example:

  • records of holidays taken together;
  • evidence that the couple have kept in touch whilst apart;
  • photographs of the couple;
  • letters of support from friends and family;
  • evidence of any joint financial commitments;
  • any other formal documents linking the couple (invoices, memberships etc.).

You don't need to ask because it's their combine income.

Sure, I will rate, how long the visa procedure will take ?

It really depends, there may be additional questions of checks if there are issues with documents etc, if everything is in order, it should take about three months.
