Immigration question for a US citizen to live in the UK and married to a UK citizen.

Asked 11 months ago - Sylmar, CA

My wife is a US citizen and we are married I'm a UK citizen . My question is I'm having a hard time trying to meet the financial requirements set by the UK immigration. This is the reason I don't think she will qualify for entry clearance. Is there another way we can live together in the UK we have a four year old disabled son together and my son qualifies to be a UK citizen. It seems wrong that immigration are happy to split a family up just because I can't meet the almost 20 thousand pound a year earnings threshold.
