    How do you fry your eggs?

    I love scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and cream … once a year delight (usually Christmas)
  2. The consistent answer you're getting Kiki - is that we don't know how this will effect your visa application and you need to speak to a registered migration agent to help you navigate this, Even if you pay the money back - I imagine that legal action can still be sought by centrelink (if they did or not that would be up to them) and if immigration checked, despite having paid the money back, there would still be evidence that you'd claimed (technically) to be single whilst in a defacto relationship. The evidence you provide will contradict the evidence available at centrelink (a government department). The majority of members will only be guessing what an outcome might be - which is why you need to seek the advice of a professional who can help you.

    UK General Election Predictor

    We won't Simmo - we don't live there anymore nor intend to (if that changed we'd register to vote), I don't feel it's right to exercise a vote under those circumstances. I know others will and that's ok, but it doesn't sit well with me to do it.

    Australia and Climate Change

    When you copy and paste could you leave out the parts out at the bottom (on subscribing). How old is your source PB as the first line talks about reaching a certain target by 2013
  5. You have started multiple threads on the same topic - you need to get professional advice from an agent (those who post regularly on her come recommended by others). Technically, you have committed benefit fraud by not declaring to centre link for 2 years.

    Joint account

    Other than the marriage certificate - what proof do you have that your relationship has been lasting and ongoing?
  7. It seems that your application may be a little more complicated from your posts with the non declaration of a defacto relationship to centre link. It may be wise to get some professional advice on this matter. I would also recommend that you keep all your questions to one thread as that keeps any advice in one place.
  8. AHPRA give a standard CV format - it would probably help if people were more specific about which section they are having difficulty in and then suggestions can be offered.
  9. Are you and your wife living together as a couple?

    How do you fry your eggs?

    I use canola oil (or spray canola oil on the BBQ). Have the heat high, until the egg goes into the pan then turn onto medium. I baste the egg rather than turning it over. Depends how i'm managing the multi-tasking if they're straight from the fridge or at room temp. we don't like the edges crispy.

    Options after having two WHV

    Qualifying as a psychologist, getting some experience and then applying for a skilled visa, alternatively, his partner could apply for a skilled visa (if they have an occupation in demand and pass the skills assessment etc., he could then come as the defacto (if they meet that criteria

    Medicare Enrolment

    We went within the first couple of days of arriving and had to go back as we weren't in the system (think they must be able to search). We were on there a few days latter, so I would say you could go after a week to be safe. You will be given a receipt when you register - that's your proof of medicare entitlement until your card arrives. You have one card and all your family members are on it.

    Who knows - they wanted privacy the other week

    National Anthems

    Obviously, with a big tournament like the Rugby world cup you get to hear a lot of anthems. I've always liked La Marseillaise but you can't beat Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (IMO), but I am a bit biased. Do you have a favourite?

    I like that one too

    They'd defiantly be seen as celebrities there

    How is Megan doing so far?

    Her friends making statements to support her and tell everyone how nice she is, they invariably make a statement that some people find negative and it has the opposite effect. This story of 'how wonderful my friend is to fly (with or without a newborn) to watch me in a day' - what people have taken from that is - how can she preach about reducing air travel (even if she went commercial), how could she subject a baby to two long flights in a day, how could she snub the queen by not going to see her. Her friends making well intentioned statements to get the public on side, seem to backfire

    How is Megan doing so far?

    Her friends don't do her any favours making public statements. Isn't this about the same time they didn't fly to Balmoral because their child was too young to do the flight? There's always a possibility that she's been misquoted - but really, here friends aren't helping her cause.

    Welcome to my Humble Abode

    I've met @The Pom Queen several times - she's not boring

    Returning to UK

    Hi, welcome to the forum. I've moved your post to UK chat. We've had and still have, lots of members who for one reason or another have returned to their country of origin. Some haven't looked back whilst others have felt the pull of both places. There are a lot of stories in this part of the forum and if you're feeling like you're wanting to return home, then there'll be an abundance of support too.
  25. I didn't think you could get married before a PMV had been granted. My assumption (but not migration law) would be that you were no longer eligible for the PMV (because you had actually married) and would therefore have to apply for the partner visa. Best to check this out with a registered migration agent as to the implications
