My name is Donna, I am 30 years old my husband is 37, we have 3 children. I moved to Australia with my parents when i was a child and after 3 years they seperated and mum brought us back here, my dad is still their after 20 years and loves it, I have no family left in the UK and want to move to be near my dad.
We are currently Hotel Owners/Managers which is on these lists. (1413-11)

Before that my husband was a vehicle paint sprayer / panel beater / body repair worker for 17 years, some employed and some self employed. He again has no formal qualifications but is ectremely good at what he does and with 17 uears experence behind him.
What he does is listed as 2 different occupations on the SOL list
4213-11 Panel Beater
4214-11 Paint Sprayer
An independant Visa takes around 3 years and when we called Australia House we were advised that the best way forward would be to find an employer to sponser either my husband as a paint sprayer/panel beater or the both of us as Hotel/Motel mangers. Where do we begin to find a sponser?
