The income requirement for non EU nationals settling in uk have for a long time been around £30,000 p.a.  Ot had been discussed on Filipino/ UK forums for years.  I am surprised the person you know was not aware of that before he flew his wife to uk.

When we applied for resident status for my Fillipino wife in spain it was pretty easy because spain was a signatory to the EU decree which ensures families must not be divided.  UK never signed up to that.

I don't think i had to prove my income.

Sorry Kav I don't know so would only be guessing.

We travelled last in December 2019, and I had to 'argue' with Easyjet before they let my wife board without a visa.

PS.  I just looked at the U.K. gov web page which showed whether a visa is required.  https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa
Previously when I did that it said no Visa needed.  

This time I completed the questionnaire and it appears one might be required.

This is the result  https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa/y/philippines/tourism/yes

I assume you want to change your name, but I guess you know that is just a tradition upon marriage in uk and not a legal requirement.

My wife and I  live in spain where technically one cannot change their name, although brits do it.

My wife changed the name in her Filipino passport and applied for residence status in Spain in that name 

Her surname is now in the Spanish style, her maiden name and my surname. So, like Spanish couples we have different surnames.

Just on the point of cancelling an insurance policy 

I asked sanitas if we could cancel a policy which is paid quarterly.  They said it could only be done at the time the policy comes up for renewal, which is 7 months away and that we were required to give at least one months notice.
