Allright, are you aware of the requirement for the spouse visa?
If you would like to live in the UK with your partner on a long-term basis, this post will help you to identify the main requirements which must be satisfied under the UK Immigration rules to obtain a spouse visa where applicable.For the UK spouse visa, both partners must be 18 years old or over, as well as a sponsoring spouse, must be either:British Citizen (Relevant here)

Required fees increase if dependants involved are not British. Income only can be combined if the application is made inside the UK but not for entry clearance applications. Savings also may be used instead of regular income: if you have savings of £62.500, the financial requirement can be satisfied. Besides, there is no need to show any other income. Although, it is important to note that exactly what documents are required and how this financial requirement can be satisfied depends on how you get your income.It is also crucial to discuss the accommodation requirement which must be satisfied under this visa category.

After spending a total of 60 months on a spouse visa, an applicant can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK to settle permanently if eligible.
