If you are applying for your partner and/or child to join you in the UK, you must show that there are sufficient financial resources to support your family in the UK. One way of demonstrating this can be via your UK employment income.
Detailed documentation will be required to evidence your UK employment income, including a letter from your employer, payslips showing your gross and net pay and your corresponding personal bank statements evidencing receipt of your net salary.
If you have been with the same UK employer for at least 6 months, and the salary you are receiving is at the required threshold, you will have to provide payslips covering the full 6-month period immediately prior to the date of application.
If you have changed UK employers, and/or if your salary has not consistently been at the required threshold, you may instead need to provide documentation covering the full 12-month period prior to the date of application.
Given the complexities that can arise in evidencing the financial requirements for a family visa, it is always recommended that you seek professional advice. Our team of experts are ready and willing to assist.
