Re: Moving back with kids not speaking English

It shouldn't be a problem when you move back. Things will sort themselves out when they are amongst English speaking kids. They will have to speak English in that environment so they will.

Re: Theresa May wants minimum income of £25,700; £49,000 if you have 2 kids

Question: Is the income based on what the UK citizen earns? It doesn't make any difference what the spouse earns?

And if anyone has any info about Belgium, I would be really interested in that.
