Advice for moving family to the UK?

Visa Journey was a key feature in helping¬†me get here 12 years ago but wondering who can help me with all my questions about moving back to the UK? We want to get there soon but¬†I spoke¬†with a lawyer, the UK passport office and embassy here -¬†all gave conflicting information¬†ūü§™


I have dual citizenship UK/USA. US husband and we have 3 children together all born in the US. We all have US passports. Only I have a UK passport. 

Not sure my best option as both require me to send my UK passport in the required documents.


1 - Apply online for my 3 children to get their first UK passports first?

2 - Apply for my husband's Spouse Visa first? Do our children have to be added to this as dependents?

3 - Fly to the UK and start applying for kids passports and husband's visa with no intention of returning to the US? (probably dumb but I hear it can be done)


Anyone out there got some insider knowledge? Thank you!

So the children are IKC's but  do not have their passports, sounds getting that sorted would be an easy first step.


Do you intend going forst to get a job to sponsor your husband or do you have sufficient assets?
