    Agree with drumbeat - from what I've seen driving through the area there are some nice houses but the area itself seems a little rough. My friend is a teacher in the neighbouring suburb of Hillman and she tells me that's also pretty run down. If you're looking to rent initially you can get some great deals in Rockingham at the moment in much nicer areas. The areas to the south side of the foreshore are lovely, as are palm beach estate and the anchorage estate. You can pick up a nice modern unit which is a 5 minute walk to the beach for around 350 a week

    Are you looking to rent or buy there? I live nearby. To be honest I'm not sure what it's like as never really venture there myself and don't know anyone else that lives in that area. It's close to the hospital and train station. What do you want to know and I can try to answer your questions. Also what are your circumstances? Where do u live now? What would be te ideal situation when u relocate? Close to work? Outdoors? Good schools? Beach? City life?

    Citizenship application - parents details??

    Thank you all - I am trying to submit it electronically so not sure if if will be difficult to omit these details. I will try again today and may need to give immigration a call if any issues. I will post again later to update. Hopefully we won't have any delays.

    Should say passport details - I can provide all other details they are looking for.

    Citizenship application - parents details??

    Any ideas what happens if you're unable to provide details on parents - eg I can't provide my mothers details as she is deceased, as is my father in law.

    Citizenship application - parents details??

    Thank you - makes sense!
  7. I have just started my citizenship application and wondered why they ask for details of my parents and their passport details? Not a problem to provide them but just curious why they want them?

    Also could try contacting the registrar for a copy of her birth certificate?

    Maybe contact immigration to discuss? Or the Australian embassy to see if they can provide a document to show at customs. Good luck

    Getting a mortgage in Scotland whilst still in Oz

    Would be interested in any information on this also. I did see that there are companies that specialise in expat mortgages - I've not gone as far as to look into it yet but might be somewhere to start. Anyone any experience using such companies? Would be interested to see if it would be worthwhile organising from Australia or better to just head back then get a mortgage organised once settled.

    Chemical castration.

    So you would be happy for tax payers money to cover their lengthy prison stay whilst they appeal continually (must likely also covered by tax payers money). I'm not saying that they should all be roaming the streets doing what they want. Just putting forward that the argument for the death penalty or chemical castration also have limitations.

    Chemical castration.

    If a deterrent is going to work surely one such as prison, public knowledge, loss of support network, etc would be enough. I would think those who have more severe issues would be unlikely to be deterred regardless of the severity of the deterrent. Time and time again courts warn offenders of increased penalties each time they reoffend and they continue to do so. There are still many prisoners sentenced to death row in America so clearly wasn't enough of a deterrent for them.

    Chemical castration.

    I should also say that some offenders do know their behaviour is wrong and they don't want to act out in that manner. Some know that the public perceive their behaviour is wrong but they don't fully understand why (perhaps sexual acting out is normal to them because of their own childhood experiences etc.) Part of therapy is having them analyse what led them to offend so they can develop awareness, challenging any distorted beliefs and strategies to manage underlying issues. For those that do reoffend, their behaviour tends to follow a similar pattern to prior offences.
