Hi How can I help?

As you are dependant of your husband Tier 2 along with your kids you remain if you like a piggyback on him.

yes we are all dependents

If you start divorce proceedings and eventually the marriage breaks down and you are divorced, unfortunately you will not be deemed dependants on him.
