    Your best bet is for your husband to go to a solicitor or immigration advisor in the UK. They can be expensive, but that is nothing compared to the cost of an appeal when you have done it yourself and failed. The amount of paperwork needed is absolutely huge, an expert really is the only way forward.

    I don't think you do necessarily need a solicitor etc, especially if you have a fairly straight forward case (don't know if algerie 213 does though). I always recommend the site ukresident.com, they have a very good uk visa forum there.

    All the information you need is online. To be honest, it would take someone a very long time to give you everything you need on here or on your email. Go to the UK border agency website to get the address of the school in Algiers where you do your English test. I think the school is professional language solutions. You need level A2 on IELTS, but it takes about 4 weeks to get the results and you can only do the test at certain times.

    As for the documentation you need, it makes no difference where you apply, the papers you need are the same. Most people put their application together in the UK and then courier it out to Algiers to be submitted. Our case is very straightforward and I never would have risked it without proper advice. We have been told to put in papers I had never even heard mentioned by other people or on any website. It is up to you if you want to do it yourselves, but as I said before, a few hundred pounds spent on an immigration advisor is nothing compared to the thousands it might cost for an appeal. I think the key thing is that your husband has a good job with a good salary and has somewhere for you both to live.

    ukba's website regarding English language (IELTS details are on page 16):
    http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/si...s-partners.pdf

    this thread has good info on visas, although it starts off by talking about marriage in Algeria: http://www.algeria.com/forums/womens-corner/23544.htm

    As I live in Scotland I was given free advice from the immigration advisory service (it was a 30 min appointment with a junior solicitor in which we just checked through the answers on the app) as I did not have a straight forward case.

    The final key thing is obviously, proving your relationship through wedding photos, receipts, invitations to your wedding, emails to each other, cards from friends and family, general letters of support, the explanation of how you met, the reason why you must go to the UK instead of your husband coming to Algeria, plane tickets to prove he has come to see you regularly, marriage certificate in the original language and a certified translation into english, any invitations for his family to come to Algeria that you may have from the town hall, skype records, copy of his passport.

    And as I'm on a roll.... accommodation, if you are renting, the tenants agreement with a letter from the landlord that he accepts you to live in the property as well, and stating that it meets UK housing regulations on overcrowding, or if your husbands own the mortgage agreement, or if it is owned completely a copy of the title deeds or a statement from the solicitor that they hold the title deeds and that it is owned outright, letters sent to his address in uk.

    Finances

    6 months payslips from him, from you, 6 month + bank statements with at least £400 spare each month after rent, bills etc (raising to about £700 if you have a child), a letter from his employer, if your finances are tight then a breakdown of his monthly spend/planned spend.

    please can you answear me please?
