    Spreadsheet crew does Shipping

    W20 be aware not all homes have built in robes. some older properties won't have. If you have room i'd bring everything you have room for no point not using the space available. Can always get rid if youfind you don't need it the other end.

    Renting With 2 dogs - melbourne

    We even offered more rent and to sign a two year lease at one point to try and secure a property and still missed out.

    Renting With 2 dogs - melbourne

    Honestly one dog is sometimes an issue two will be even more so in my experience. Despite the new laws owners are still reluctant to rent to people with a dog. We struggled with one small dog to get a rental despite having two stable incomes and no children we missed out on many rentals. Honestly we would've had an easier time if we had been willing to accept what we considered awful hovel like properties. Goodluck.

    Consequences of cancelling a visa

    I think however i'm not 100 percent on it, that your partner visa will be cancelled given that you will no longer be in a relationship with the sponsor. I think you need to contact a visa angent and find out or if there's any option for you to stay if that's what you want.

    Partner Visa Concerns

    It's very likely centrelink will prosecute the person claiming the single parent payment. It's not like the old days when all you had to do was pay back the money. The generally do take it further these days as clearly it's fraud. You can't claim to be single to gain financially and then oh no we are a couple now because he's losing his visa. I'm sorry but this just stinks of someone chancing on not getting caught and abusing the system. If i'm wrong on this i'm sorry. However i don't think i am in which case you've both been very silly/stupid to play this game and i think the visa will be refused and prosecution for benefit fraud will be coming your way along with paying back the money.

    Nursing in UK

    Have you considered trying a rural teaching hospital EG Mildura in Victoria, Bendigo again Victoria or somewhere else in a country location. Worth a try before moving to the UK. Sorry if you have already considered or tried this option.

    Coming up to 10 years in Aussie

    We must be very lucky we have just recently moved to a new area. Currently renting after selling a property. Moved due to new employment. We've been in the new place about three weeks. We had a large gum branch fall from the tree in the front garden two nights ago. The very next morning our new neighbour who we hadn't even met yet came knocking and asked if we'd like him to remove and take the branch away( he was heading to the tip and would be happy to add the extra to his load). He came back a few minutes later with chainsaw and cut it and took it away. Money and drinks were offered which were both declined. He was happy to help he said. We are looking to buy in the same area atm. If the house we are renting comes up for sale would love buy it.

    How to make it happen?

    Perhaps i'm pointing out the obvious but you do know the 457 is not permenant visa in regards to your daughter and her family? Could she not get Pr with any skills on the list?

    AMA plan to get more doctors in rural areas

    Yes we need more doctors in rural areas that's obvious tried recently to get an appointment and it was a week to get an appointment. We have three clinics here and all were fully booked. However the idea to make student doctors do a year in a rural area is flawed imo. We need doctors who are prepared to stay, you need to build a realtionship with a doctor and it just doesn't happen in rural areas for the most part. In my case over the last few years i find a doctor i like and am comfortable with only to find they leave after a year or two and you're back to square one. We have a lot of doctors coming to our area whom are from non english speaking backgrounds and a good portion of them are very hard to imo understand. I'm curious as to how they pass the english test to be honest. I even had one prescribe me medication that it clearly states in my records i'm allergic to? Which i pointed out to said doctor. Not good enough!!! I agree with the comment about maternity services two of the small rural hospitals in this area have closed their maternity units in the last two years forcing expectant mothers to travel between an hour to two hours to access maternity services.

    Debt in different states

    As far as i know no it's not true the debts will follow eventually. Especially if they are for things like utilities, credit card, phone plans etc. In fact they will most likely end up on a bad credit list and even something as simple as getting a phone will prove very difficult. Renting a property will also most likely be hard too.

    Centrelink benefit when husband lost job

    I'm fairly certain given the wife is working he would get nothing from centrelink.
