By applying for a fiancé visa yes you are allowed to be together sooner, but in the long run all you'll end up having to do is pay for yet another visa that's the exact same price right after you've been married save yourself some money and be patient I know it's not easy, trust me, my UK husbands and mines daughter is almost 7 months old and she's only seen her daddy once so it's frustrating but in the end it'll be rewarding x

I think the fiance visa is great because it is the visa that can be converted to a settlement visa after the wedding without the expat having to return to their home country to apply.

My husband and I would have gone for it but decided we should try living together and sharing a single bathroom first, lol! That's only a partial joke, though. First, he'd been alone for nearly thirty years, I'd been alone for 13, we're both over 50yo, and I'm an American frankly used to having at least a bath and a half.

Even growing up in the late 50s and 60s, my family was quite large, and we had multiple bathrooms in the childhood home. I learned how to do plumbing growing up because my dad was always adding another bath, lol!

So the bathroom issue was a biggie-it's the little irritants that can play hell with a marriage.

In our case, I think if we had it all to do again, we would still have used the visitor visa-even knowing I would have to return to the US to apply for my settlement visa. But that's just us, and every relationship is different-Ain't Love grand?!

time off work, and state whether this time off is paid or unpaid
"

Is this relating to annual leave or something? To me it sounds like there needs to be a line in the letter confirming that she can leave work (to move to the UK), but that wouldn't really make sense if she's coming here to live. Can anyone explain what this means? Thank you.
Hang in there, Joppa or one of the other mods will probably be along in a bit to answer this question. I'm curious myself at what the answer is.

I haven't replied so far because I too wasn't sure about what it meant (yes, this happens for me too, sometimes!)
I'd imagine it would relate to time off you have had while you've visited UK to meet your partner. It can't possibly refer to what happens when you finally move over to UK to settle, as you will have given your notice to quit!
Personally I don't think it's a crucial part of your supporting document - all they really want to know is if you've been in paid employment, with steady income, and your prospect of getting another job after moving to UK.

I'm a mod at a current events discussion forum-I know exactly what you mean about the occasional 'stumper', lol!
