so now we have two kids ,
my fiancee she dont work as she has two kids to look after , and she is in receiving of house, child and job seeker allowances and tax credit , benefits ,
i consider to a solicitor so she told me we will not have any problem when we ll apply for fiance visa , actually my fiancee showing tht she has around 6000 pounds savings and which is only for me , as she is getting benefits so those 6000 is only for me ,

i dont have any kind of savings in my account , and i m not even working here
so would you please advise me should i go and apply for visa as solicitor said to me .

You said you were already married. Why would you apply for a fiancee visa? Makes no sense. And also I think she ould have to get off all the benefits since if your approved how could she have that much savings and no job? It would look like you will just get on benefits with her. Which is against the rules. :)

I'm familiar enough with general rules, but for Pakistan and Islamic marriage, there are some specific rules and procedure, which I'm not 100% sure about. So it will be better for you to get specific advice from those well versed with people in your situation.
While you seem to have sufficient maintenance, you have been refused visas before and you can't expect UKBA to give you an easy time. Every visa applicant is interviewed in Pakistan by ECO so you do need to get everything spot on.
Sorry can't be more specific!

do u have a certificate for that Islamic marriage ?

if yes, then u can certify this copy Islamic marriage from the British Council or "BHC" and get it stamped, as u already got married in UK.

the u can use it as a evidence of your marriage. and apply as a spouse.

I Hope that I'm right, but it would be better if u can ask another members too.

Good Luck Bro,

Bye

Apologies if what I am about to say is wrong but just my own personal opinion.

akka...I think you are in a difficult situation and should get some more in depth advice. I believe that these are one of the things that are looking to be stamped out when the new rules comes in to place in June.

Even though your wife or you can prove that there are savings of £6,000 how will you & your wife be supporting yourself if you are granted a visa to come back to the UK? wether as a spouse or fiance?

Don't get me wrong just looking at this from another angle and also you say that you were married in the mosque and they could or did not give you a married certificate. I know that nearly all mosques provide marriage certificates..and ok maybe some don't for what ever reason but did you not ask this question before you got married? that way you could or may have saved your self a lot of grief getting and proving that you did actually get married to your spouse in the UK?

Like I said I apologise if what I say is not right and was just thinking that it will be hard to say the least as the new rules about bringing family and spouses over will make it very very hard for many..and you will need to have a much better case and reason other than what has been given so far.

Good luck all the same and let us know how you get on.
