    Hello @ella1992 and thanks for your post this morning :)

    Just so that I understand fully I'll need to ask a few questions:

    How are things between your sister and her partner? Is the relationship the reason she wants to come back to the UK with the children? 

    Do your sister or her children have any health conditions or disabilities which would need to be taken into account before they move?

    I wonder if you can contact Citizens Advice for help, your sister may need to check if the children have, or can apply for British Citizenship as well, Citizens Advice has guidance on what to do if that's helpful.

    In terms of financial help, I'm unsure about the process around moving from the US to the UK, but once in the UK, it would be worth staying in touch with Citizens Advice, or searching on AdviceLocal, as well as Turn2Us, which has a benefits calculator

    If we've missed anything, or you feel we can help further, please do let us know.

    You need to get specialist immigration advise (which is regulated). It isn't appropriate to provide advice on such matters via a forum.

    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
