  1. Hello I am desperate for some help so hoping for some feed back :-) I am looking at the above visa and with 2 adults on the application and 1 child I have calculated the price at £2,155. Any idea if this is correct? I have 40 plus pages here and feel like my head is about to explode :arghh::arghh::arghh: To give a quick run down of my situation. I am British and married and have a son who is 1. I also have a daughter who is 9 and lives with her Australian mother in Australia. As I understand the waiting list for a permanent visa is 20 years plus or the cost is a stupid figure I could never obtain. However the above visa would allow us at least 2 years in Australia? Or am I missing something? I'd love some help or feed back if anyone out there can help us? Thanks so much in advance. Rob.
  2. Hello, I desperately need some help and advice from people probably more in the know than I am. I have held a few discussions with 'Massimo' from global visa's. He tells me that for £1300 I can gain a work permit for Australia and there will be the option with a 2nd year. Even though I have no skills he will set me up interviews until I have gained a job and can go to Australia. Interviews for regular jobs such as a supermarket worker or a postman. This all seems to good to be true. I am 31 and have a 6 year old daughter who is Australian and lives there and so far over the years I have been told that my only way into Australia is either the 15 year waiting list or paying $42,000 neither of which are viable. So for someone to suddenly tell me that I can get over there on a work permit with no skills seems strange. Does anyone have any experience with these people or just have any general advice? He is due to call me back on Friday so please any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  3. Hi All I am at the beginning of a long road to move to Australia in order to be near my daughter who is 6 years old. I now have enough money to pay for the visa (143) so want to get the ball rolling. How long might it take until I could be living in Australia and would my wife be able to get in on my application or would she need a separate application? I have e-mailed all the experts regarding what route to go down but thought asking people who are in similar situations might also bear fruit as in me getting more info. I have many more queries but will ask them further down the thread as don't want to ask too much at once /) Many, many thanks. Rob.

    For the last 4 years I have have never had another job or claimed a penny and my sole income is from poker. Poker is a skill game long term. Many 1000's of people around the world are professional poker players the only difference is some countries you have to pay tax on your earnings and some you don't. http://www.professional-poker.com/news/2009/mar/972-Becoming-a-Professional-Poker-Player.htm There are so many places on line that will explain the ins and outs of a pro poker player. The above is just one of them. Anyway I did not come on here to talk about my job as I am here for a very important reason. I hope this now draws a line under it Rob.

    Best migration lawyers?

    My 4 year old daughter is Australian and lives there and I am not sure what path to go down. When I have researched I have seen anything from up to 20 year waiting lists and sums of money that are quite frankly ridiculous. I am so unsure where to go next and thought a lawyer could be the best idea..... Thanks Pete for you advice

    It is a nice feeling to see so many people offering advice to someone they do not know so thanks so so much. I have found a migration lawyer where the initial price seems reasonable. Would you recommend that I take this offer up of the interview at $89? http://www.australianimmigrationlawyers.com/migration_plan.php Thanks again.

    I have a few qualifications but nothing like anything at degree level. I am a professional on line poker player so I'm thinking this is not going to help my situation:( Thanks for the advice, I will try the magazine

    Thanks, I am already reading about 20 year waiting lists and $40,000 charges! Is this really correct? There must be a way for me to be able to live in the same country as my own daughter. Or is each case dealt with individually? Just to do a on line assessment was $2.6k. Guess I am just panicking already but I will call some lawyers and hopefully things might look better
  13. Hello everyone, My name is Rob and this is my unfortunate situation. I am English and have a daughter who is now almost 5. She is Australian and lives in Mildura, Vic with her Australian mother. We split up about 4 years ago but still get on well and I have always supplied for my daughter by sending money over every 2 weeks. There is so much to take in when I try to research if I can readily get a visa and citizenship that I can simply not work it all out. I have talked to so many people before and it never seems clear cut. I am now in a position financially where I can pay for all costs etc and plan to move over there. But what I want to know is this is possible right? Who do you suggest the best people to get advice from are? Should I just make a appointment at the Australian embassy in London? Do you have any idea on prices and time lines? This is so so important to me and any help, however small it might be would be so much appreciated. Thanks so much in advance, Rob.
