Default UK - Spouse Settlement Visa- Financial Requirements

Hi All,

I am new to this forum, anyone can advice me about financial requirements?
We're both working in Middle East. My husband resigned and decided to go back to UK in June 2018, we are applying for my spouse visa.
We have around 30,000 pound savings plus we can get end of service around 20,000 pounds total but we cannot use this as we read in the requirements that the money is about 6 months in the bank.
My husband will go back first to UK to find a new job to sponsor me and we will use (Category A: With current employer for 6 months or more – overseas sponsor returning to the UK)? Or he need to wait after 6 months working their before we can apply my spouse visa?

Anyone can help me???
Thank you in advance

Thank you in advance

If I read the above correctly, your husband will return to the UK to find a job. In this situation, your husband will work in that new job for 6 months before applying for the spouse visa under the following category:

5.1. Category A: With current employer for 6 months or more – person residing in the UK

In addition, if once in employment in the UK earning 18,600 GBP, if he has earned 18,600 GBP in previous 12 months in his overseas employment, he could be eligible to apply for spouse visa under:

5.3. Category B: Less than 6 months with current employer or variable income – person residing in the UK

BritInParis thank you for the reply, my husband already closed the bank in middle east as he moved back to UK to find new job.
Is this possible to attached the payslip and contract previously?

He'll need the corresponding bank statements.

That would not be any use unless his salary has been paid into that account.

Unless you can produce the bank statements that show that your husband's salary as shown on his payslips was paid into his bank account then you won't be able to use that income to meet the financial requirements.

Why can't he get bank statements? Even if the account is closed, he should still be able to get bank statements if he doesn't already have them (for future ref: make sure he always keeps them!).
