We have found many parties comment to us that what is suppose to be the happiest time in their life, is a time full of anxiety as their relationship gets test by a third person. Parties cannot opt out of cooperating with governmental bodies if they wish to get married in the UK.
We have expertise in this field and can assist you if you feel you require assistance.
You are required to show how much your sponsor has earn in the last 12 months. If you are married with no children the requirement is that you are earn in excess of £18,600.
If you are sponsoring a child plus a partner you will need an income of at least £22,400.
For each additional child being sponsored you will need an additional income of £2,400. For example, if you are you are bringing 2 children with you to the United Kingdom, you must have and income of £22,400 and £2,400 for the additional child, so a total of £24,800.
