    Undecided on what is best for us

    Just a thought have you thought about having an au pair? I am a single parent in Perth of a 4 year old and a teenager. I work shift work and also have recently started my own business so really stretched with working hours at the moment. Having an au pair is the only way I can manage my children with school drop offs, after school activities etc. It is so affordable and and flexible and all you need is an extra bedroom. I pay $150 a week for 25 hours with bed and board.
  2. Hi, We had a similar circumstance and it was never an issue. No assurance of support was asked for. As far as I'm aware it is up to the individual case officer to decide if one is required. Hope that helps and good luck with your application. Helen

    Defacto Visa

    Thanks guys, I just assumed it was almost instant once they had required info but I guess like everything visa related it takes time. As far as finance goes I'm going to look into it again. OH works FIFO in a permanent job so affording it shouldn't be the issue. When we tried before we put it to them first that OH was on a visa but maybe if we discuss it without mentioning that to them it may be ok. Anyway we can only try and I'll post how I get on. Thanks for your help Helen x

    Defacto Visa

    Hi everyone I've just got a couple of questions regarding this visa. The OH is currently still on the provisional 309 and in April of next year will have spent 2 years on this. What is the timeframe and process to being awarded the permanent visa 100? I am aware that you provide further info regarding continuing relationship but once you have provided this how long until you receive the new visa? Secondly has anyone on the provisional visa managed to secure a car loan? And if so with whom? Reason for asking is we currently drive are giving us expensive problems and we are just pouring money into these cars which is painful considering their value. We have previously looked into finance but as OH is main earner and hasn't a visa which gives him permanency this was a problem and on my wage (part time) wasn't sufficient to apply with. Any thoughts much appreciated. Thanks in advance guys Helen x

  8. Hi caz, My other half is a carpenter. I think it is fairly easy enough getting the mine work if u have a few contacts. My OH just called anyone he knew of and eventually got a start. Was the same when looking for work around Perth. Where in Ireland are you coming from? You must be so excited I know we were. Xx
