    They were bound to appeal as this would be a serious "loss of face" for the May person and the Government so another Judges v Government coming up (how much!!! )

    So not much point in putting in an application if you are under the threshold until it is sorted out then (one way of keeping the non EU numbers down by the government ) as for that old chestnut of avoiding the dependence on the taxpayer/public funds is now probably the lamest excuse going from the looney's running the asylum.

    Default High-Court Judicial Review of the minimum income threshold for settlement

    http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/si...y/16-judgement

    Sounds promising. Like so many here, I REALLY hope it is.

    How significant do you think this really is? Is it a step in the right direction, or something potentially more exciting for separated families?

    Does anyone know of an estimate as to when a decision might be reached? Are we talking months, a year, several years?

    The right to a family life should be available to everyone. Love knows no borders and it's time that was reflected in the law. As far as I'm concerned, if you can pay your basic living expenses without help from the taxpayer, and speak reasonable English, you should be able to live with your British family member in this country. I live on much less than 18,600 a year and living with my wife, who would be earning and contributing, would EASE NOT INCREASE the financial (and emotional) pressure. Isn't what many of us need in these difficult times?

    That's my thoughts. Look forward to reading yours.

    Many thanks.

    I read somewhere recently that the average cost off tax paid by people earning less than 25k per year is balanced out to zero with all the benefits we get here (Scotland).
    Free prescriptions, NHS, schools etc etc.
    So I don't think it is as easy to say my foreign partner will contribute, I think it is much more complicated a calculation.
    Although I 100% agree with your sentiments Bertie.
    Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

    Agree Bertie, the income requirement and the subsequent appeals etc clearly show the May woman and her cohorts are trying to show the general public they are reducing immigration (a vote winner) to save themselves and don't actually give a damm about UK citizens with a foreign wife/partner. All this is cofirmed in the UKBA statement about how pleased they are

    That may be Colin, but the courts will decide whether that policy/requirement is lawful and consistent with Human Rights law.
