    American Police Checks

    Hi claramanda, I got my finger prints taken at my local police station but i had to pay £70 for mine!!! You were lucky yours were so cheap! I sent mine off last week, but I do not know how long it will take, it can take anytime from 3-9 months I got told. But my friend who is American applied for her background check from Australia and hers took 6 weeks. Hope this helps!!

    Migration Agents in the UK

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has used a migration agent in the UK and if you could give me the name or website of the agents. Me and my partner are both looking into getting an Migration Agent and we have looked at a few but would appreciate if people could provide us of the details of the Migration Agent they have personally used, some feedback and advice. Thanks!! :biggrin:
  5. Thank you everyone for all your replies and helpful tips! :biggrin:
  6. Hi Peach, When you applied for your visa were you in the UK or Australia? How did you get hold of an migration agent and were they expensive?
  7. Thank you both Peach and Bezza for your replies. How long did it take you to get all the evidence and forms filled out and sumbitted for the visa? I have read through the booklet and it does not say anything about living at home. Did either of you get an Migration Agent to help you out? Also, when did you get a health and police check done? Good Luck Bezza with your application!!! It must be very exciting for you and your partner!
  8. Hi, Me and my australian boyfriend are looking into applying for the defacto visa. We have been looking into it for the last 2 years and now we are finally at that stage. We have been together for 2 years this March. I am a british citizen and went over to Australia on a working holiday visa where i met my boyfriend, when my visa ran out i had to move back to England and my boyfriend stayed in australia for 10 months saving money and applying for the british version of the working holiday visa. The whole 10 months that we were apart we stayed in contact with eachother everyday and was stilll in a relationship but long distance. In March 2010 my boyfriend came over to England where we both now live together. We both live in my parents house but we do not pay any rent as my parents have kindly said we can stay in their house for free as they live over in America, in order to help us save our money. Therefore, we do not have a rental agreement. We do have a joint bank account and all of our paychecks, bank statements, any type of mail all get sent to the same address where we both live. Can anyone please help us with any useful information. For example; What forms do we have to submit? What evidence do we need? Is it okay if we do not have a rental agreement but we can get a written statement from my parents confirming we do live together plus all of our mail go to the same address. If anyone could help us we would greatly appreciate it Thanks! :smile:
