This answer was rated:

Dear Sir / Madam,
My inquiry relates to the term 'no recourse to the public funds' on my spouse and children
who has joined with me in the UK few months ago.
Can I as a husband qualify for the Child benefits, Child tax credit and working tax credit?
provided that Im a British citizen residing in the UK.
If I claim the benefits above, will they effect my wife and my children's ILR application in the future in any respect.
Thank you in advance.
Kind regards
Tahir Mirza
