Have you been in touch with the council and CAB? When you are in this vulnerable of a position there may be temporary housing you can access. I'm really sorry you are going through this. :(

Apparently, there is a way.

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/nonimmigrant-visa-for-a-spouse-k-3.html#1

It seems you apply for the immigrant visa first, then once that process is started, but before it's granted, you also apply for the nonimmigrant visa.  If the nonimmigrant visa is granted before the immigrant visa, he can enter on the nonimmigrant visa while waiting for his immigrant visa.  If the immigrant visa is granted first, the nonimmigrant visa is no longer required, so that application is automatically closed.  I think.  Either way, he'll be let into the US as soon as one or the other is approved.
Ahh may have to look into that. Thank you

@MrsPoetryMan  did you ever find out what the financial support amount required is? Alasdair and I are thinking about moving back too as he might have an opportunity to take VR from his company soon.

JustJac

I left the UK with my husband and three kids 15 years ago and was to move in with my father. I didn’t have an income so I needed a co-sponsor and my best friend in Houston did it. He turned in an Affidavit of Support and turned in his 1040 with my application. Despite being single with no dependents, he had to declare a seven-person household and be 125% above the poverty guideline for that tax year:

Himself
Me
Husband
Child 1
Child 2
Child 3
My Dad


Currently, on the USCIS website has the 125% on this form for 2019 tax year:

If we leave we will be doing so with a big chunk of money from my husband's VR package so we were hoping that we could use savings for the financial portion which, if I remember correctly, you could use for the UK family visa. Also, my parents would be willing to sponsor us but they are retired so wouldn't have paycheck stubs or anything like that... Just their retirement funds. Don't know if that would suffice.

US Immigration has an income requirement not a savings requirement for sponsorship. By all means, use your husband’s VR package to live off of and establish yourselves once you’re in the US but the USCIS wants your sponsor’s proof of income. That’s why my sponsor had to turn in his 1040 for the tax year as proof of income and that’s what is needed for the sponsorship. They also allow many sponsors to help but their household size factors into the household size calculation.

Hey MrsPoetryMan... just wanted to see how you're doing.  Has your situation improved or resolved itself?

You can use assets in lieu of income for the I-864. You have to show 3x the 125% poverty level for your household size. Hubby and I have decided to move back to the states. Technically we don't have to fill out the I-864 since hubby earned over 40 quarter credits with social security, but with the new public charge form for DCF filing, we will still need to show our assets are a positive in our favor.
Even when life seems at it's most dark and despairing.. there is within the power to make change.
