    Leaving Oz after 8 years.

    you need to check, but I thought for the children to be citizens you had to already have PR status when they were born - so they may have to apply

    I'm glad I'm not a women in Alabama.

    I was the one who suffered the miscarriage and saw it PB .. I think that qualifies me saw what it actually looked like (as with Newjez). It isn't being disrespectful - just stating a fact.

    I think that's the right attitude, do something you've always wanted to that will fit for you irrespective of where you're living. Are you doing primary or secondary?

    Having experienced a miscarriage in the first trimester - that's exactly what it resembled no matter how much I thought of it as a baby. Newjez had been speaking of their experience as couple who experienced a miscarriage.

    Good luck - did you consider getting your citizenship in case you or the children want to return in the future?

    So are you saying that it's just sad and life if a woman has to have a child as a result of rape or incest?

    It's political . They're trying to overturn the Roe decision, several other states have also passed new anti-abortion laws but this is the most extreme. I don't know much about US politics my understanding is that the law currently is unconstitutional as it hasn't been passed by the supreme court.

    Unless they find out that their father was a serial rapist or a family member for example .. or that their mother was so traumatised by her ordeal she couldn't relate to or care for the child or turned to substances or killed herself, then i'm sure there will be some psychological issues that might impinge on their happiness/childhood

    Not the woman - the Dr who performed the abortion can be punished with up to 99 years in jail. (source not the daily mail). I guess until the new law is tested we won't know the severity of the sentencing

    There's an article in Rolling Stone (sorry can't seem to attach the link as computer is playing up). The article is entitled: How states like Alabama protect rapists over women and girls and how Dr's can be punished with up to 99 years in jail - decades more than for someone convicted of second degree rape

    Royal Baby Boy or Girl?

    The school my daughter teaches in the children call the teachers Miss xxx or Mr xxx. I have to admit when my son was at school the sports teachers were referred to by their first names or nicknames and they called my son by his nickname .. as an Oldie I wasn't too sure about that at all.
  17. Contact one of the agents who post regularly on here, I don't know if your situation becomes more complex because she's been living with her Dad (and probably his dependent rather than yours) and not included in the original application. Is she going to complete her Uni education in the UK? Hope all works out for you.

    Moving Back to the UK from Australia - Positive Stories

    Glad to hear it's all going well.
  19. Feeling sorry for my boy - got injured in training 2 weeks ago, scans have shown a grade 3 tear/rupture .. he's like a bear with a sore behind - not able to work or play football.
  20. I would agree with Marisa and speak to an agent. is there any reason she wasn't added as your dependent when she was younger?

    Help to return to uk after 30 years

    That's sad @Livvy52 please do let us know of your progress in going back and good luck.
  25. We had regular visitors here. I went back for 1 week for the first time in 2016 when my dad passed away. My hubby and son did a football tour last year for 3 weeks (for my son's 18th birthday) and my daughter visited for 4 days on her way back from Europe.
