My Khmer Wife is pregnant

Post by BFG » Fri Jul 22, 2016 2:38 pm

Hi all,
My Khmer partner is pregnant I'm from England and 29 we have a small business here in Cambodia, that does ok but I'm not sure we can earn enough money to raise a child here with school fees hospital care everything required here. Has anyone on here taken a partner to settle in there home country.
My information about bring my Khmer wife to settle in the UK is that I would need to earn at least £18,600 per year or have sufficient savings of about £65,0000 lol
Any help please guys.

It would be hard for me to find employment in the uk earning that amount, the only back up I have is my parents are due to retire in six years and there mortgage is paid off.
There is a possibility to get the funds needed that way it's just to prove to the uk government we have enough to support are selves.

Welcome to the forum.

As low as the British Pound is right now, surely you're making almost that much.

I have not been working in England for a long time I worked mostly in Australia, I'm a plumber by trade but I have not been doing that for about five years. So it might not be to easy to get that work in the uk again.

OK, serious answer. We have probably covered this topic before, many times. If , after you spend all this money , that you don't have, will your wife be happy in her new homeland, with no friends, too cold , probably no job, no Khmer food , no family. I think you both will be happier and better off here, even if it is on the poverty line, than in the UK where she will be wanting to return to Cambodia every so often.

One of her friends is now currently living in the uk, has been married to an Englishman for Severn years and they have two childeren. So i don't think all that really matters the child's future comes first right ?
