A friend has asked me to find out something for him as i am unsure myself.
If anyone works in the immigration department please help.
My friend is claiming disability living allowance and employment support allowance.
He has found it very difficult to find work due to his disability but is still trying.
He recently got married to a girl who is a US citizen.
He would like to bring her back however as he is not working he relies on public funds.
On the UK Border Agency website, it says you cannot rely on public funds this includes DLA.
She has savings and a degree and wishes to live with him.
If he is not working, how can he call her to the UK on a settlement visa if he is not working and is claming DLA? is this not discrimination or unfair that people with a disability who marry abroad cannot bring their spouse because they claim these benefits not because they want to, but have no choice because of their disability? In his case blind.
