I'm afraid I still do not clearly understand the financial requirement though I've read the entire document here http://www.ukba.home...df?view=Binary.

What I'm not clear on is this: Does my partner have to have actually made a certain amount of money in the past year or is it acceptable that he was employed and earning a salary which, should he have continued working, would have met the requirement.

To explain further, he had a full-time job but when we knew his visa was expiring and he would have to go home we took 5 months and traveled across the country so he could see it before he had to leave. Therefore he didn't actually earn a full annual salary but was employed with an acceptable rate of earning for the visa.

The actual wording is this: " the couple must in addition have received in the 12 months prior to the application the level of income required to meet the financial requirement applicable to it" trying to get id

I am unclear on whether that means we had to actually make that amount or just had to be employed at a rate which would satisfy the requirement as far as gross annual salary goes.

If anyone could help with this I would greatly appreciate it! This process has been difficult to do on my own and I'm trying to get it done as soon as possible so we can be reunited.

Previous and current earnings may be considered.

I strongly recommend that you get legal assistance with this as I can see some holes in your application.

Well, that's just the problem. I can't afford legal help. The new financial stipulations in this visa completely alienates young couples like us who are recent college graduates. How can they expect us to have made that much money right out of college? I know they do this because they don't want people coming to live off of government funds but it's very unfair for hardworking people like us who just want to be together. They make no allowances and give no opportunities to people in our situation.

Your application will cost over 800. A consultation with a legal professional to see if you actually qualify will be around 100. I'd say you should pay 100 to save throwing away 800.

If I could find a consultation that inexpensive I would certainly utilize it. The only ones I've been able to find are in the thousands and that isn't including embassy fees or anything.

For a simple consultation? I would say that you clearly haven't contacted any of the advisors on this board, and you certainly haven't contacted me!

Please email if you would like to discuss this further.
