    Hi Asif
    Happy New Year to you.
    I thought you wanted to take your wife and children first to live in Germany. As you live and work there
    Then after a few months apply under the Surinder Singh route. While the UK is still in the EU.
    Spouses who enter the UK by this route under EU law DO NOT need to take any English test they are exempt.

    As for settlement under UK law there is no way your wife can enter the UK without the language test unless she has absolute proof that she is too mentally or physically ill to take the test.Then she could be refused on health grounds.

    So I dont think your lawyer knows what he is doing
