- Wife successfully got spouse visa this year using £62,500 savings, now in UK with me.
- We want to use this toward a house.
- Currently we don't meet the £18,600 income criteria, and won't until August 2018.
- When we come to extend visa for FLM, I will have been working for 1 yr over the £18,600 threshold. I want to use this income solely as financial evidence instead of any savings.
*My question* : Can we spend the £62,500 before application for FLM, seeing as I will meet the income criteria at time of application?
Is there any danger of 'officials' checking in on our savings during the next 2 or so years of leave to enter?
Thanks for your help.
