Thank you for your question.

To assist you we would need to know what type of visa your boyfriend is planning to apply for. If you are thinking of applying for a visa for an unmarried partner, there are certain financial thresholds you normally need to meet including:
-An income of £18,600 (from the sponsoring partner). This increases if you have children.
-evidence that you have lived together in a relationship akin to marriage for the past two year.
-you have suitable accommodation for you both to live in

There are other criteria which need to be met. Someone will be in touch today to discuss how we may be able to help you should you choose to instruct us.
