It will not stop if he is not earning anything. You will have to notify them that he has joined you and apply as a couple. When he starts work his earnings will be counted.

You have to tell them the day he arrives and make a fresh claim in BOTH your names. It can take a few weeks to sort out.

YES and NO

he will be with you, if he gets the visa, BUT he cannot claim HB, as with CTC you need to notify them etc

if hes not working your income does not change, and you are still entitled to whatever YOU are entitled to, its not about him in that respect.

but as a public fund, i never see why it should be paid for anyone!

do 2 budgets one with and one without and see if you still clear the DWP rates?

as soon as hes working then HB goes depending on his earnings!
