Moving back to the UK

Hello

I was originally born in the UK and lived there until 2002. I moved to the USA where I have been ever since I'm a dual
Citizen retaining my British passport

My wife and children (7 and 1) are all USA citizens but my kids also have UK passports. My wife does not have UK citizenship

I'm now strongly considering moving back to the UK. South England likely and I want to know the best way to do it

Can we start the paperwork while living in California so that we can all travel over together? Do o have to go over first and then apply for my wife?

Secondly. She is a fully trained Pilates instructor so she wants to know can she start working straight away while there on the settlement visa?

Thanks. I'm sure there will be more questions

Hello Admin! I have a question. I noticed on the gov.uk site, it mentioned the 18,000 pounds income. It also says you can use your savings if it is over 16,000 pounds. I wonder if that would work as well as buying a home outright there.

I'm also interested in this post, as my husband is the same as you. We have no kids other than cats. I remember the paperwork, proof and red tape required to get my husband here to the US. We also will be selling our home and buying a new one there; I wonder if that helps with a visa? Looking forward to your updates.
