no, I looked on the UK government site, it says
https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...equirement.pdfIncome and cash savings must be in the name of the applicant, their partner or jointly.

Well, I have plenty of sterling liabilities, so it isn't the end of the world. I wanted to put enough aside to be able to convince UK immigration we can move back without me needing a job first (look what happened to Skyhook's friend... Didn't want to put my family through that)Original Post Deleted
That peace of mind is worth a small paper loss for me... And if I dont need to move back I can pay off some of my sterling mortgages, which are also becoming cheaper in real terms given I earn HKD.
So I'm not too despondent for my overall wealth, my biggest loss is that my children won't be able to work in Europe freely when they grow up.. Very sad for them.
I did underestimate the scale of Sterlings downfall though, even though I knew which way it would move.
My family is in a similar situation to many here. The UK is nice for a long summer holiday but unless they radically change their immigration rules, that's all it's good for in my opinion. I wouldn't want to earn GBP anyway.
Is there actually any reason at all that UK (England & Wales) Marriage Certificate is better than an HKSAR Marriage Certificate?
If anything, I guess the fact that the HKSAR Marriage Certificate is bilingual makes it more usable in English & Chinese language countries.
