I wrote a post similar to this a couple weeks ago, I have no idea where to star (immigrating from Canada to U.K., my husband is British). I've created an online profile as directed but it seems so confusing through.

We were married about a month ago, and I've changed my name. When the profile asks for past/other passports do I need to know the numbers of all my old passports? I'll be getting a new one in the next few weeks with my new name, do I just provide them with that one? I don't have old ones...

Just really not sure where to start & the gov't website doesn't seem to give straightforward information. Help is appreciated!

Joppa answered your post last time and provided info - have you g one to the online link he gave you?

You have to apply for a spouse settlement visa. Your husband has to sponsor you and HE has to fulfill financial requirements.

The settlement visa website is below:

https://www.gov.uk/uk-family-visa

The financial requirements are below:

https://www.gov.uk/government/uploa...pendix_FM_1_7_Financial_Requirement_Final.pdf

Depending on how he intends to sponsor you he will need to provide payslips, bank statements etc to show he earns enough to support you.

You don't need to provide the numbers of all your old passports.

Depending on what name you are applying under, you provide that passport number as your current one.

In addition to financial documentation he will need to provide proof of accommodation. Other docs required are your marriage certificate, passport itself, Appendix 2, and printed copy of VAF4a form. (not a total list of docs you might want to send to prove your relationship)

Hi Crawford, yes I saw Joppa's reply to the last post & it is very much appreciated. I'm just having a hard time knowing where to start with all of this.

With the online profile I created, should I continue to use that? Or just compile all the documents I can put together on my own & submit that way?

I apologize, I just find it to be confusing when there doesn't seem to be a place to go where all docs can be filled out, or even a guideline to follow (I found the UK govt website very unhelpful).

I need to just pick a place & start there I think!

Read the links I gave you, especially the one which relates to the visa itself.

That takes you through the process

Overview
Apply as a partner or spouse
Apply as a parent
Apply as a child
Apply as an adult coming to be cared for by a relative
Apply on the basis of your private life
Knowledge of English
Give proof of your income
Information you must provide
After you apply

You would apply as a partner/spouse

As Crawford has explained very clearly above! You must be sure you meet all the requirements, financial, accommodation and relationship and that you have evidence of each of these categories, with original documents as proof. You should make sure you have all your supporting documents in place ( the most recent financial ones have to be within 28 days of your application) because once you have given your biometrics, you have to submit your supporting documents quite quickly, I think. Not sure of the process when applying from Canada. Don't forget Appendix 2!
