lol..i think we are all used to people coming here to exaggerate one or two stories just to win an argument.

The next person may claim to have invited his ex-wife without applying for visa

Happy Easter elders, pls who knows how "independent contractor" works. My wife got a job "Accelerate delivery program" with NHS but she was told she will be an independent contractor. Pls what does this mean and how does it affect tax and NI payment?

Hello Chreze,
Just out of curiosity. You said there are ‘not-so-expensive’ tests to check the genotype of the foetus in-utero. Brilliant!

This check is done post fertilisation and conception, yes?

What would have happened in your own case if the results showed SS? The pregnancy will be terminated. Yes? No?
Let’s assume yes. What happens if the second pregnancy is SS too? Repeat termination? And the 3rd and the fourth etc until an AA or AS comes along?
You machine the emotional trauma, and the cost.

Chreze:


Bolded is very true, I can’t deny that. Have an in law who has 4kids and the last is the SS. Very expensive to manage.

The AA part is to also mention that an AS and AS can get married and give birth to an AA. Most of us know it’s possible but we don’t always hear about it. There is this general believe that when AS couple, it will always result in an SS.

There are resources that are not all that expensive, like having the sample test before baby development. We can’t keep making it look like it’s not possible.

There are no definitive percentage of the total number of AA in Africa and Asia (since these cases are common in those region). So what happens to the likes of us that are AS, we won’t get married if we don’t get an AA partner?

We have to live beyond these fear and work with researches to live a happier life. Ask yourself why I don’t want to go above my 1child or why I don’t really have issues adopting a child if I can’t have one? Life has to go on.

Just a friendly question, at what point of dating do we ask the genotype and blood group question? @Lexusgs430 please help with this question too. And anyone that has an answer.

If you're below 40, sha open a LISA with at least £1. In 13 months, a couple can get free £6k from the UK Govt for their house deposit, it's the biggest awoof

Is this advisable for individuals still on Tier 4 Visa.

For those not understanding what ISA and LISA means as i was in a group and most people are a bit confused what this is about. Just want to simplify it here. Elders in the house can also input further explanation.

ISA and LISA are two types of savings accounts that allow individuals in the UK to save money with tax benefits. Here's a simple explanation of how they work:

ISA (Individual Savings Account): An ISA is a savings account that allows individuals to save money without paying any income tax or capital gains tax on the interest earned. There are different types of ISAs, including cash ISAs and stocks and shares ISAs, and individuals can save up to a certain limit each year.

LISA (Lifetime ISA): A LISA is a type of ISA that allows individuals aged 18-39 to save up to £4,000 per year and receive a government bonus of 25% on their savings, up to a maximum of £1,000 per year. The money saved in a LISA can be used to purchase a first home worth up to £450,000 or can be withdrawn tax-free after age 60 for retirement.

Both ISAs and LISAs are a great way to save money and earn tax-free returns, but it's important to understand the terms and conditions before opening one.

Well put. For LISA, while you can only open the account between 18 and 39, you can contribute up to £4k till you're 50.

You can save up to £20k cumulative in all ISAs per year.

Now, I can flow with the ISA-LISA thing flying around grin

But can this kinda savings account be used as proof of fund? I mean, if one wants to invite mother inlaw for omuguo? Or is it restricted for only mortgage blah blah

Yes, I used my ISA as POF.

Good afternoon and Happy Easter everyone!

May our prayers ascend fast because our saviour is risen!!!

There's no stipulated amount. Just show wuthin reason that your current savings and future income can sustain the sponsorship of the visitor.

Budget at least £2,000 and submit payslips and bank statement to support your source of income.




Yeah, that's a fair amount depending on how long the person is staying. Assume flight is like £1k and another £50 daily to host the person so 1 month stay is like £2,500 ish

Does the Parent need to be financially buoyant?

NO, but the parent's account statement is needed so ensure the inflow and outflow correspond and makes sense to their financial situation.

Hence, it's about the approach and a holistic view ......

This is it. Just let your application make sense. It's not about balance but about proof that you can sustain the visitor. Having a fictitious balance that doesn't correspond to your income/expenditure will still get the application bounced
