How much time can one be away from UK whilst on spouse Visa without causing an implications on the probation period or subsequent application? I am trying to see if one can maintain a job overseas and flying into UK frequently.

Well, there is no hard-and-fast rule for ILR but generally you must be ordinarily resident in UK and UK must be the centre of your activities. While being sent by your UK employer abroad is acceptable, you are on less certain ground if you voluntarily take a job abroad.

Thanks for the response. I thought one needed not to be away for 3 months continuously. Appreciate your assistance

There are no set times. When you come to apply for ILR, and your travel record shows you aren't ordinarily resident in UK without good reasons, they may refuse you.
