I am from africa, living with her in the uk for the past 4 yrs
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 17 days ago.
As you are dependent on her working a full time job would mean you are not dependent on her which can affect your visa.
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Ok. I understand that. So, what is the maximum hours that wont affect my visa?
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
I have already obtained my masters here in uk 2 yrs ago. And i am finding it difficult to get a 16 hrs job as an admin. But instead working as a cleaner
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 17 days ago.
16 hrs will not affect your visa.
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
What about 20hrs a week ?
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 17 days ago.
You should do part time hours which would be 16 hours.
