Uk Citizen Marrying A Peruvian Citizen
Posted 05 December 2012 - 10:32 AM
Im very new to this, so please excuse me if I ask a question that is simple or I do not make myself clear.
Myself and my peruvian partner have been together for a year and are planning to get married. I have recently changed my job and have met the financial requirments. Although this is great I would like to clarify that I need to be working there for 6 months before it can be used as proof of income for the application? Im guessing this is the case in order to provide stability and show a consistant income? If that is the case, would it be better to wait until the 6months to apply for the spouse visa, or start the process now?
Furthermore although we both wish to get married in the UK and then my partner settle in the UK, is anyone aware whether it is easier to marry in Peru and then return to the UK? I know there are many different pro's and con's to both, for myself and my partner it is key for us to be together asap.
In addtion once we are married and my partner is settled in the UK, is he allowed to start applying for work and working asap?
Many Thanks for your time. I appreciate any feedback.

The seocnd question depends on your partner's status in the UK.

In terms of my partners status. He has been to the UK on a visitors visa which is still valid until March. However before he comes over to the UK he would apply for the spouse visa. If we do go ahead and get married in the UK he would then want to get into work asap.

It looks as though you have to wait 6 months anyway.

Are you aware if a marriage in Peru is valid in the UK?

Also, I understand you need to prove there is somewhere for your partner to live in the UK. Is being on a tenancy contract enough? Or would a letter be required from the landlord as well stating that the fiancee can live there? Is it ok to be part of a shared tenancy or would I need to move to a private rented accommodation?
So many questions. Thank you for your help with this difficult situation.
