  1. This is a very good video to highlight what the British government is doing to families. I am British and live in Korea. My wife is Korean, and we have been married for two years. I want to go back to the UK to study (the LPC) next year, which means that I won’t be employed. By the time we will be ready to go back to the UK, I will have saved £35,000 to pay for my studies and living costs and more. Unfortunately, the government says that this is not enough – if I plan to go back to the UK, without a job, the only way to get a spousal visa is if I have £62,500 saved up – and kept in the bank for the 6 months preceeding our move to the UK. This is simply not possible. It’s not possible for me to get a job before I go back to the UK, but will be able to get one after finishing my studies, which will take 10 months. It’s a very difficult situation.
