I have just spoken to the migration agent again, we are in the very early stages of working out how is best to get into Oz. When I spoke last time I was told we had 115 points, so I did some research and we came up with the solution of doing the Ielts test to give us an extra 10 points, all seemed sorted!! However, we would be applying in my wifes name as she is a teacher, but doesn't have the relevant experience ie she hasn't worked for 12 out of the last 24 months due to the birth of our daughter last September.
I thought the lack of experience just meant we didn't get the points for experience, however it appears that we can't even apply for the visa until she has this experience, and it has to be 20 hours a week!! So it looks like we will have to wait a year to apply, but when we do, as long as we pass the test we will have 125 points!
What I am not sure is how many points I would get, I only have a 50 point job and I am 36, I will have to check to see if we could apply in my name as I think I get 110 points, then rely on my english being half decent!!!
Oh well, it was never going to be easy was it!!
