    What is your Reason for the Move?

    we are moving as my husband is on resettlement after doing 22yrs in the army. we havent lived in the UK for 7 yrs and dont want to move back there, we are at the start of a new phase in our lives so why not give it a go try something new. Used to the moving around every 2 - 3 years seeing new places and meeting new people. got to give it a go, no regrets. 6 wks and 5 days till we fly

    Fly in/fly out phenomenon

    My oh would like to get into this, he's a heavy deisel mech, worked on tanks for all of his career. like most people have commented if you have the right mindset bout your oh being away then it can really work for you as a couple. Being an army wife i have had to deal with him away on tours, exercise and courses and me and the kids just get on with it. Has made me a stronger person had to man up lol :laugh: We enjoy the time we have when he is around, i think it keeps our marriage fresh:em3600:

    Help Advice needed....

    Sandy this is the link to Trade Recognition Australia, they are the ones that will assess your skills. I am assuming you have tried to match your job up to those on the skills list! The one that is closest to you trade will have the assessement body next to it. http://www.deewr.gov.au/Skills/Programs/SkillsAssess/TRA/residenceVisa/Skilled/Pages/home.aspx

    Help Advice needed....

    Sandybeattie, having nearly finished my time in the REME as a VM, i got my Visa last year and am moving out in March. The process is not difficult but as you mentioned trying to line your trade up is difficult for you. Without knowing for certain due to the changes after i gained my Visa, but am i correct in saying that your trade is not important on the points test? You may find it easier to speak to TRA who may guide you more and find an avenue for you to go down and last resort and i loathe to say this as i believe they are not the best in the world and are expensive for what they do but it may be an idea to speak to an agent. If you have done your degree also this helps and it is never to early to start the process. Hope this helps

    Young children coping with move

    As quite a few others have said we too have involved our 2 kids in the whole process (7yr girl & 10 yr boy). DD is excited and very keen to start another chapter in her life. DS whilst being excited is a little upset at the thought of not seeing his grandparents (they have told him that this xmas will be the last time they see him, they wont travel over to oz). Ultimately my 2 are used to moving around and starting at new schools and meeting new friends, we are an army family:army-smile: so my kids are pretty adaptable and take everything as it comes. Let the journey begin :laugh:
