    Israel Folau

    And there are many Christians who disagree with that.
  2. ...or what's in the water they're swimming in.

    You haven't mentioned your children's other parent. Is he (assuming a he) from the UK too and what is his attitude to a prospective move? To live somewhere considerably better than where you grew up will depend on income....so what are the employment prospects like for both of you in a preferred area?

    How is Trump doing so far?

    It's not the Ambassador's job to "work with Trump". His/her job is to represent the UK and its interests, not to be a bootlicker to an egomaniac. The UK is not a vassal state of the US - not yet, anyway.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    He was not sacked. He chose to resign because he was due to retire at the end of the year anyway and, Trump being the infantile narcissist he is, the furore would be an ongoing distraction from diplomatic duties.

    I hate to break this to you....but the world and Wimbledon tennis existed before you were born. 14 of the 19 Men's Wimbledon Singles titles 1952 - 1971 were won by Australians. That's called dominating. I don't think even the USA had a run like that.

    HECS debt-owing money

    Did you know that the government has just lowered the HECS repayment threshold again? Now $45,881 (gross).

    Just educating you to the fact that Aussies have never "been pretty crap on grass" - even English grass.

    So that is why they have produced Wimbledon Singles champions 20 times in the last 54 years (v. UK's 5 times?)

    143 Contributory Parent visa

    This is the official report as at 30 June last year. Details for parent visas are on page 17. Not sure when the new report to 30 June 2019 will be published. https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/research-and-stats/files/report-migration-program-2017-18.pdf

    Agree - generally considered a spoiled brat who should find another career....and take Tomic with him.

    The Adelaide vibe

    No, definitely Hobart - speaking as someone who has lived here most of my life but also spent 6 years in Adelaide. It is probably due to its more temperate climate (much cooler than Adelaide, occasionally snow down to sea level), being considerably further south, so having longer summer and shorter winter daylight hours....and much less non-British migration than Adelaide.

    DNA Testing

    It was very common in British and European aristocracies - including Queen Victoria who married her first cousin.

    Visitor Visa- VACCU Referral

    Each electorate has its own local Federal MP (as well as a/several local State MPs). In this case Federal would be appropriate given that immigration is a Federal matter.

    Partner Visa Onshore - Not in Aus yet

    To get back to your original query (above). Many of us have kindly commented: yes, it could be a major problem. Consequently we (none of us agents) recommend seeking assistance from a registered migration agent. If you do not wish to do this, you are quite free to lodge the application on your own without delay.
