    Isis schoolgirl wants to return to UK

    I read she will have to be allowed to return unless she has any other nationality as you cannot render someone stateless. She’s shown no remorse, just wants the nhs to look after her and her child!
  2. First of all you need to make sure you can get a visa. Your sons condition may mean you can’t. You need to establish that before anything else

    Immigrating with a child on the spectrum

    Very unlikely. They look at how much the visa applicant will cost over their lifetime. Full time support in school is very expensive and support could continue for life, also very expensive. Sadly having family over there makes no difference, the heavy costs will still continue. As Quoll has said, you cannot say you will cover costs forever, no one knows the future and I don’t think it would make any difference. Once someone has PR they have entitlement and that’s what will be looked at. Do contact one of the agents mentioned just so you know for sure. In terms of your parents retiring out there in five years or so. The current wait times for a parent visa is now about 6 years and climbing so they may want to look at joining the queue sooner rather then later. I wish you luck

    Need ideas for a starter for dinner

    I have done this started many times over many years, so easy and lovely. You do shave a little Parmesan over it but just don’t on your daughters plate. Bag of salad leaves with rocket in, bottle of drizzling balsamic vinegar, block of Parmesan cheese, a small gala melon or honey dew ok, pack of Parma ham, loaf of ciabatta bread. cut and lightly toast the bread (1 slice per person), lightly butter and put on individual side plates. Scatter the salad leaves over the top then arrange ham in the middle and shave a bit of Parmesan over. If you have a melon baller then scoop out the melon or little slices will be fine and arrange on the plate around the toast. To finish, drizzle over some balsamic vinegar, not enough to drown it, just to taste. It takes just a few minutes, it’s not heavy and it’s lovely
  5. It certainly is pretty amazing. You get an opportunity to spend the rest of your life in Oz near to your family and get PR which gives you Medicare for life which includes access to some of the finest medical advances in the world, so lucky. You have so much more such as public services, if you need police and fire brigade help for example. Not sure what you mean by without any benefit because what I’ve just listed is surely a huge benefit? If you mean given handouts then no, I can’t imagine many people would turn up in a new country and expect that though. The visa isn’t compulsory, you don’t have to apply but if you decide to, be grateful it’s an option!

    Help with partner visa

    Yes, definitely need that in writing as not only will it cost you a huge amount of money but will eat into your holiday options for years. Is dad and son ok to only see each other twice a year?

    Oh sorry Perthbum, this was a reply to someone else, I’ve put it in the wrong place so it won’t make any sense at all. It was a reply to someone who said about someone’s going to say shoplifting doesn’t happen in the UK.

    leaving a family member

    There is no right or wrong and no one knows how it will pan out. For me personally, no I wouldn’t do it. Not because they wouldn’t be ok but because no where on this planet would be good enough for me to choose over seeing my kids maybe once a year if that. My kids have made the move and I’m ok with that as it’s their lives and I’ve raised them to be independent and happy. For me that’s a world apart from me choosing to leave. That is in no way a dig at anyone who is ok with it, it’s honestly ok if if suits you.

    Of course it happens, it’s just someone routing through a lady’s handbag just isn’t the British way

    I agree re isolated thing. Yes it is supposedly the most isolated city in the world but there is well over a million people there so you’re hardly alone. Also, I expect most people work and play within a short distance for their home. I bet something like 95% of people only travel further than a few hours from their home on rare occasions like holidays so it doesn’t really matter.

    Yes I agree no one is picked on, it just happens and people get used to it. I seem to have stired up something here. I was just responding to the person who’d moved over 5 weeks ago and was saying how great they had found it. They said how nice it was to go to a museum and not have to have their bags checked before they could go in. I just made the comment there as it’s inportsnt to give the OP as much info as possible. You may not get your bag checked if he go to a museum but you’ll sure get them checked when out shopping.

    Maybe I’ve just been lucky but I’ve never seen that happen in sports direct and I’ve been in several different ones over the years. I’ve never seen it happen anywhere in the UK but I know for sure it happens very regularly in Oz.

    IT professional late life emigration questions

    Unfortunately it doesn’t matter what most people who are in IT would argue, it’s the rules. Raul who posted is a very well regarded migrant agent, he knows how it works

    I guess like anywhere it depends what area of the country you live. If you lived in an afulent area in the south for example then you would be very unlikely to have those same job worries, both in terms of pay and getting another job should yours end. If where you live is really as bad as you say I totally understand you wanting to move to somewhere better and I wish you the best of luck.
