  1. If this was me, I think I would meet with a Lawyer. I would try and obtain some kind of legal document signed stating your legal rights to move your child without the fathers consent.
  2. This truly is an awful situation! All I can think of is for you to try and contact him or contact his family who maybe in touch with him. Do you have joint custody?

    PTE for spouse

    Probably been answered in numerous other posts, but if you are not claiming points for partner, then no need for a skills assessment for partner. Therefore, as seen on the homeaffairs website (https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/english-language/competent-english) To prove you have competent English, show us evidence that: you are a citizen of and hold a valid passport issued by the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, New Zealand or the Republic of Ireland or in the 3 years before you applied for the visa, you scored one of the following: Test Score International English Language Testing System (IELTS) At least 6 for each of the 4 components Test of English as a Foreign Language internet-based Test (TOEFL iBT) At least 12 for listening, 13 for reading, 21 for writing and 18 for speaking Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) At least 50 for each of the 4 components Occupational English Test (OET) At least B for each of the 4 components Cambridge C1 Advanced test At least 169 in each of the 4 components

    Skilled Visa Lists

    If you are talking about the ANZSCO Occupation Ceiling numbers ... 2018/2019 numbers can be found here, along with a snapshot of where the invites stand. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/working-in-australia/skillselect/occupation-ceilings I would imagine the 2019/2020 numbers would come out after the election, and closer to the end of the migration year/start of the next (End June 30, 2019, start next July 1, 2019). If you are talking about the TOTAL number of invites they cap it at, the planning levels, once again we have to wait until at least after the election, if not closer to the year end. Although I believe recent sentiments from ScoMo suggest the expected invites will come down from 189k to 160k.
  5. As you can see from the information above, Those hoping for an Employer Sponsored Grant, or Family Grant might have to expect to wait a while due to the number of applications that were in the pipeline at June 30, 2018, compared to the number of people they invited over the entirety of the 2017/2018 migration program for that category. Also helps to explain why State and Territory seem to be going slow - they had over 50% of the number of invites they give out in an entire year - still waiting at the start of the 2018/2019 migration year. I guess they need to clear those backlogs first, other than the odd lucky few that get quick grants from current year. I wish their report had more details of all the categories and numbers waiting in the pipeline, as well as numbers by state/territory, but did the best I could with what I found. Thought some others might find it interesting.

    High Points for 489/190 - South Australia

    Congrats on the sale of the house! I've no plan to sell until we have a visa. The waiting is crazy, but you never know whats around the corner. You could get a grant at anytime because they are so random when selecting cases. I feel like I could be the last one to be granted.

    Good Morning or is it Afternoon for you guys? I just woke up and see we were voting for a way to stay in touch outside of Poms. I feel most comfortable with Facebook messenger . I've never used WhatsApp. Sorry for the late reply but with the time difference it can be tricky.

    Multiple EOIs

    Yes, that is what I did. I can see on the Victoria list of skilled occupations for nomination, it says you need registration or reg in principle, which means AHPRA first. South Australia currently has special conditions, but when they reset in June/July this last time, those conditions went away for a few months at least.

    ACS deducted 6 years from my work experience

    1. @JetBlast was spot on in his reply. 2. If it was done less than 24 months ago - YES 3. Can you have more than 1 active skills assessment ... On the main page of the ACS Skills assessment page, it says: "Please Note: Only one application can be active at any one time." In the FAQ section, it specifically says however that you can have more than one assessment completed, and still valid. "Holding more than one suitable assessment outcome will not invalidate any of the previous result letters provided they are still within the 24-month validity period. "

    April fools, hoping ours comes in by then too... 2 months does seem a little short, but if they get through the backlog in a hurry who knows what might happen. That's awesome of your employer to keep it open for you, not too many would do that. Here's hoping everything is smooth sailing and you don't need to use that life-line.

    Multiple EOIs

    A few people have created a second EOI and have been successful. You will just have to prove your loyalty to the state that chooses to sponsor you. I started out with NSW and didn't get anywhere, so I decided to change completely and go for South Australia. Someone else on here went with Victoria and was successful. We were both RN's with 65+5.

    Which 1st. Visa or nursing registration

    That's exactly the point. If I could not get my AHPRA registration I would not have gone one step further. Once I knew I had my registration I felt that Australia was a viable option.
