Financial Requirement - Spouse Visa
Posted 23 November 2012 - 09:10 PM
I'm new to this forum, thanks to all the people who put their time into providing advice.
I'm currently living in Chile with my fiance, we are getting married in March.
I've been offered a job back in Scotland, but with a salary of only £15,700. I understand that I need cash savings of £23,250 to make up the shortfall.
If I can't get the cash savings I would look to getting part time work. The problem is that I imagine most of the work available to me will be paid by hour and getting a part time job that pays a salary and fits around a full time job will be hard.
I basically just want to confirm that work that is paid by the hour cannot be used in the financial requirement.
Thanks in advance,

So I can take any part time job as long as I have a contract with the hours worked and the pay slips to prove it I assume. So if I work the two jobs for 6 months I should be able to meet the financial requirement? Do you know if I can get any more information on the topic anywhere?

The requirements are in the immigration rules. Sadly, there isn't more guidance published which would help you. A meeting with an advisor is probably your best option.

I'm in Chile at the moment so a meeting with an advisor would be tricky. Do you offer any services of looking over an application before it is submitted.
I'm currently looking at the option of applying from Chile, as I have a job offer which could start in Dec or Jan. If I could get the savings together I wouldn't need to be apart from my soon to be husband for long. Is there anything that could trip me up going down that route?
I really appreciate the advice, thanks again.

You need to have held savings for 6 months for them to be counted.
