  1. Quality of life for kids

    It sounds as though your family and friends are getting on with their own lives across Europe and you're giving up your own independent life (and that of your kids) just to be part of theirs. Shouldn't they be trying harder to be part of your life?
  2. Cockroaches

    Four in five months is hardly a plague. It's Australia, your life will never be 100% cockroach free.
  3. HELP with 40sp form

    My partner/sponsor was a stay at home mum when we moved to Australia. Even though she had no intention of working it didn’t impact her ability to be my sponsor.
  4. Renting out house in uk

    You may not be taxed in the UK (if your rental income is under the tax threshold) but you will need to declare it on your Australian tax return (unless you’re on a temporary visa). You will likely have to pay tax on the income in Australia.
  5. Posting baby milk from uk

    Maybe start giving him a variety of forumla’s now — so that he is used to change?
  6. State of the NHS

    My best friend is a firefighter, he tells me that a fire engine or police car is regularly sent to an ambulance 999 call - if they are they are closest, or if the ambulance may be delayed. More than once he has been sent to a house where the person that the ambulance was called for is obviously stone cold dead, but because they are not able to declare time of death they have to perform CPR until the ambulance arrives - even though it is so obviously pointless.
  7. Posting baby milk from uk

    We moved over with an 11 week year old. Although she was primarily breast fed, we topped her up with formula and experienced no issues when moving her onto an Australian brand. Personally I wouldn't go to the expense or hassle of shipping any over.
  8. SUBCLASS 100 visa-activation period?

    His visa didn’t expire only his right to use it for entry into Australia. As you are still in a relationship this would show a continuing connection to Australia which would most likely be enough for an RRV, but there is a chance that the visitor visa has stuffed things up. You should probably speak to an agent and get some advice.
  9. Telephone numbers in UK.

    Call a MARA registered agent. Aussie immigration aren't there to give advice, they make that clear on the website. If you do get some from the call centre it is often wrong. Save yourself the hassle.
  10. I need to come back to Aus on Return Resident Visa 157

    Your cheapest options are: a. Apply for the RRV and see what happens. B. Engage a MARA registered agent.
  11. I need to come back to Aus on Return Resident Visa 157

    No, I’m not a MARA registered agent. Even this language suggest you’d don’t meet the criteria: If you have been outside Australia for more than three continuous months immediately before you apply, you must have a compelling and compassionate reason for the absence. You’ve been outside the country for 11 years.. No you can’t sneak in on a tourist visa and pretend you’ve been here the whole time.
  12. The car....to take it or not?

    Please ignore Perthbum, he is unable to offer objective advice. There are more factors to consider. Age, model, value of car etc. Have a read of this thread https://www.pomsinoz.com/topic/94767-is-it-worth-bringing-my-car-the-iron-ladys-trusty-new-calculator-reveals-all/
  13. I need to come back to Aus on Return Resident Visa 157

    One day in the last five years it says...
  14. I need to come back to Aus on Return Resident Visa 157

    Almost certainly not, but you could submit an RRV application and see what happens. 11 years is a long time.
  15. Making the decision

    To be a successful migrant you have to be a bit selfish and focus on your immediate family. Your goals, hopes and aims should be focused on them. Say you put your plans on hold and miss the window of opportunity only for your sister to decide to move to Canada?
