Another question about third party support.

How long is a third party co-sponsor responsible for making sure the sponsored party does not claim benefits? Is it for the 27 month probationary period? I assume once Indefinite Leave to Remain has been granted, the sponsored party is legally able to claim benefits they are entitled to, is that correct?

Thanks.

If the sponsored party has worked and therefore contributed to the system, yes. But keep your eye on the news and the UKBA website because they are planning some very heavy-duty changes to the immigration rules. The 27 month probationary period may be extended to 5 years, the amount of maintenance funds may be sky-rocketing and the way maintenance funds are calculated may be restricted to only the sponsor's income, and not considering any savings of either sponsor or applicant; additionally, the proposed changes eliminates the applicant earnings and potential for earnings completely.

We are all watching this very closely. There is a thread with the proposed amount of £25,700 in the title and you may want to read it carefully. There are several excellent links to more information sources in the thread as well.
