I've got a couple of questions and wonder if you can help me: My wife is on Spouse Visa, I am a British citizen and we have two British children together. She entered the country Sept/2016. Her BRP card expires Dec/2021.
Does she need to apply for her ILR in September as she will have been here for 5 years by then? Or December as the BRP permits her to reside here till then?
Will our joint income need to be above £18600 or are the children counted as dependents and the requirement increases accordingly?
I am working remotely for a British company at the moment. Can we leave the country for a couple of months (less than 3) to visit family or do we need to be here for the duration?
As a side question, is pre-lockdown income counted? And if so, which lockdown? March/2020?
