I am an American married to an Englishman. We reside in the US. He recently was offered a job in the UK at a salary of 25,000 pounds. We started looking into getting a visa for me (I would like to work as well) and we were not aware of how stringent the new laws are.

My question is, with a letter of a job offer and savings of around $15,000, would this suffice? Would he need to show he was earning a salary in America (I am the main bread winner over here)?

Any advice is appreciated!

What has been your current combined income in the past year?

Well, this past year was a bit of an anomaly, which is why I'm concerned. My husband was finishing his advanced degree and I left my job near the beginning of the year to pursue my dream career (I was earning 85,000 dollars a year). I've been working part time, so on paper the number is low (around 20,000 dollars combined).

We had been focusing on getting my husband a job in his field and now that that is has happened, we're afraid he won't be able to take it.

The law is so confusing - so a job offer and some savings would not suffice?

You need to have been garnering an income at the required level as well as going into a job on arrival at the required salary level.
