My husband is unemployed and holds a US greencard, I'm an employed US citizen and we have plenty of savings. We plan to travel together to visit friends and family in the UK and France for just one week with a return ticket. Is there a chance that he will be declined or will both our finances be looked at together when his visa application is reviewed?

    What is the nationality of your husband? – MJeffryes Oct 8 '19 at 10:20
  • @Lisa Torres Does he have sufficient funds of his own to meet the eligibility criteria or will you be included in his application as the person paying for/contributing to the expenses of the trip? Both finances will generally only be considered if the latter applies and evidence of your employment and finances is provided. gov.uk/guidance/immigration-rules/… – Traveller Oct 8 '19 at 10:29
  • Ecuadorian, and I can be included in the application. – Lisa Oct 8 '19 at 10:48

It is absolutely usual that only one of a married couple is working. As long as you can afford the trip for both of you, and you fill in the appropriate forms to say you will be paying, then you will not be rejected on the grounds of finance.

There may of course be other issues that prevent you from getting a visa, but that will not be one.
