cca123 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Enough for savings route?

Is the following enough to go through savings route for spouse visa?
Savings-$24,000 (mixture of tax rebait, income that we've saved and inheritance. All came in at different times but held for 6months or more in our names)
Retirement 1- $40,000
Retirement 2-$13,000
Retirement 3- $4,500
Stocks (cashed out)-$10,000

This is all from this month. Do we just prove when we apply in August that its been held in our name for those 6months?
What if we make more and add to it?

I also (UK citizen) have job in states making over £18,600

I just want to be certain that all these different savings will allow us to go the savings route if I don't find a job over there....
Thank you!

Default Re: Enough for savings route?

If it's all held in USD then you are exposed to exchange rate movements. The USD-GBP rate is moving against you, up to USD1.385 today, up several cents in recent weeks, and if the pound rises above USD1.464 then your USD91,500 would no longer be enough.
