I don't know where to begin! I'm American & husband is Brit. We did the whole fiance visa and lived in US since 2005. Now, we are thinking to going to UK. How do I begin? I tried going on UK.gov site and none of the pages are working. :confused2: Is there a link with the basics of what would be required for us to move to UK? Thanks in advance!

You'll be applying to join family.

Your husband will need to meet the financial, accommodation and relationship requirements.

Read through FM 1.7 to understand the options for meeting the financial requirement:

https://www.gov.uk/government/uploa...pendix_FM_Annex_1_7_Financial_Requirement.pdf

One way to meet the requirement is to that he must currently be employed earning £ 18,600/ year and have a job lined up in the UK earning at least same and starting within 3 months of his return.

He must also have adequate accommodation set up before you arrive. Staying with family or friends is acceptable.

You must also pay the NHS Surcharge of £600 before you submit your application:

Thank you! Also... on a side note, he was previously married and had 2 children. We have wired maintenance money over the years but have just found out that his ex has been claiming some benefit for the boys. Is this going to be another issue?
