WTC cannot be used to show maintenance. Only income from a non benefits source can be used in the computation. You also need to have the paystubs and a copy of his job contract since it is a new employer. Have him FedEx the stub to you when he returns to the UK.

Yes, that is why it cannot be counted in the maintenance computation.

ok sorry for bugging you but do you think we will be ok. he is working and has a flat and its just me and him here.i will start working once i get back. also everyone is saying as long as you make enough to cover rent and taxs and have 100 lbs extra a week which we do. but on the application it asks for a total for all bills. so i am confused cause its asked for amount for all bills. plus he does have kids but his ex-partner has them.

You can't get the visa without the information, but you can't go home with him until you have the visa.  It is a bit of a catch-22.

They usually want three months, unless there is a good reason like the job just started or something.  Especially if you have no other savings.

I think they still would want the 3 months of bank accounts though.

yeah we have that and i am trying to figure out how to get his 2nd paycheck stub while we are in america cause he gets paid while we are there but they mail them to his address in the u.k. also we do have more than 6 moths of bank statements but our money was really tight before he started working but it does show his first check deposited on it and we are going to get another bank statement while we are in the u.s that will show his second check was deposited as well

i am still confused about the budget. they are saying on here you need to make enough to pay rent/tax and still have 400 a month for a couple left over. well my question is. the application asks for the amount for all bills. so do you have to have 400 left over after all bills? and if u give them a total how will they know what your rent/tax is each month?


sorry for dumb questions

They just want to make sure that your income can cover your cost of living. The 400ish pounds you're talking about is a guideline based on what a couple would get if they were on income support. If you are feeling very concerned about it, you can always include a budget to show more specifically your income and outgoings, but I think like many people who come on this forum, you're just over-thinking it!

well thank you for that but i am so scared. i cant even imagine living without my partner and for someone else to tell me i can or cant really scares me. he(ukc)does work and yes money is tight sometimes but we pay bills and we manage. when i can start working we will be golden. plus i have been trying to get rehired on with gamestop here in the uk when i come back and i will have a letter stating that. do you think this will help

Having a job offer would probably help, yes.
