Default Fiancé Visa Combined Income

Asking for a friend.

GF (Puerto Rican) Full time store supervisor. Has savings.

BF (UK Citizen) Started job 7 months ago earning £8/hr. No prior job but in receipt of child maintenance. Has savings but basically coming from the child maintenance.

Questions:
1. I know you cannot use money saved from employment in U.K. as Cat D but can he use saved payments from child maintenance?

2. If so, can they combine bf employment salary, gf cash savings and bf cash savings from child maintenance payments AND monthly child maintenance payments in application?

3. Should they go for Fiancé visa or marriage visa?

Savings from income can be used to fulfill financial requirements - most people's savings are made up of money they have saved from their income.

You can use the boyfriend's (sponsor's) income, plus the child maintenance, plus any savings he can show he has held for 6 months, plus the applicant's savings.

Read the following document carefully to see how to qualify under the financial requirements rules:

Fiance visa means double visa fees (fiance visa fee, plus the spouse fee when married); if one can get married cheaply overseas then going the spouse visa route is cheaper.

Thank you SanDiegogirl! So Cat A,D and C can be combined no matter if savings came from child maintenance. They won’t look at savings from child maintenance and payments from child maintenance as the same. Hope I’m understanding it correctly. AND Spouse visa is the best route.
