    Dependent Adults...

    I am in the earliest stages of thinking about a move to Australia. At this stage I would like to know if it is actually even possible. Any help would be much appreciated. My family circumstances are very complicated. I am a 24 year old female, my mother and father have both died. As a consequence I am the legal guardian for my 16 year old brother. However, I also have another brother for whom I have power of attorney as he is severely autistic. He is entirely dependent on me. Where do I stand in terms of visas? If I can get one, which I've been told I can, are they entitled to just come along too? Or is that totally naive? By the time we might move I think my younger brother will probably be 18 too. He is also autistic and dependent though, so I am assuming his case will be similar to my elder brother? So, I guess my question is how do visas work if you want to bring a dependent adult rather than child? Equally, is there any problem getting a visa for disabled people? Thanks in anticipation of any help or advice
  2. OK it’s an easy enough question, do you spit or swallow? Also do you find that when you get drunk you can’t help but swallow???? Do you find that just rolling it around in your mouth gives you enough of a taste that spitting it out gives you the desired taste? By the way I’m talking about wine tasting. Adult content....... Alcohol!!!! May offend....... Spitting!!!! For all of you with a dirty mind, please pass by this thread is not for you. I wonder how many people can’t help but take a look :wink:
  3. when I say 'adult' I don't mean as in pornographic...just saying... I am keen to get involved in activities as soon as I arrive in Jan, and would like to do some dancing -- ballet, tap, flamenco, don't care -- but the problem is I have a one year old with me. Does anyone know of any dance centres with creches? Also, can anyone recommend a language school? Want to learn to speak Italian. cheers, back to x factor now...

    Adult Drama/Actors groups

    I am a Drama teacher now but a few years ago back in the UK I was an actor. I would love to get back into it, mainly as a hobby for now, nothing too serious or professional just yet. Just to meet some people and get my feet back into it as they say!! Anyone involved in anything like this or can recommend anywhere?? I have seen courses but I have had lots of training and looking for something more ongoing. Any help/advice would be great.

She works part time 6hrs per week, and is still waiting confirmation of a uni place for this year. My concern is our case officer has requested further info to prove dependency.

    Adult entertainment on WHV

    Ok guys I have a quick question. I am a permanent resident which I received last year under the ENS. My girlfriend of 6 years lives with me on a WHV and at the end of 12 months she will be applying for a spouse visa. She has been offered casual emloyment as an adult entertainer- pole dancer to be exact. Something that's been a hobby of hers for a long time. My question is would this cause any issues with the department of immigration? Would they refuse her a spouse visa due to her emloyment? Or question our relationship in general? Thanks Nathan
  9. Hi guys! Im new on here and was wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and had any advice they would like to share. Im moving to Canberra on a 457 visa (application lodged), so hopefully within the next few months. Im moving out by myself and will be working in Belconnen. Im getting a bit worried tho as ive read some pretty negative things on Canberra, like how its very boring and is extreemly expensive. Both of these things are a major concern for me as i dont want to be without a social life (im 24). Im planning on trying to get a flatshare tho, so that should at least help me a little financially and with meeting people! Also, im terrified of spiders, and the thought of bumping into a huntsman actually terrifies me! Are there lots of spiders in Canberra? Please say no, haha! Any comments are much appreciated, thanks everyone!

    Adult Education?

    Does anyone have any info or advice on further education for adults in Australia? I am always keen to do more courses, in the UK at the moment I'm doing some advanced ECDL sections to keep me up to date whilst I'm out of work raising my boys. I think when I get over I might fancy being able to do a uni course or a short course in something (who knows what!) to give me a better chance getting into work again. Just wondered what the costs are, are there any free courses out there and what is the availability? Will probably be based in Victoria. Thanks all.
  11. Hey all Does anyone know of any adult ballet classes on the Gold Coast? Not for me I hasten to add I have two left feet :wink: My OH use to goto classes in UK and is missing them. If you know of any please could you provide some contact details. Much Appreciated

    Year 12 Exams as an adult.

    Is it possible to sit Year 12 exams as an adult the same way as you can take A-Levels in the UK via distance learning? I have a degree and numerous other diploma qualification but every job in my sector - Paramedicine / Remote medicine - asks for "Year 12 English and Maths". I have explained that in the UK Sixth Form is very different and so although I have good GCSEs in these subjects I didn't study them at A-Level. I heard nothing back from these apllications. This was the only pre-requisite for the job I didn't meet. I know that Australian HR Departments are very rigid so I thought that getting my Year 12 qualifications would be very worthwhile. Can you go back and do Year 12 exams as an adult? I don't wish to sound too cocky but I could probably go straight into the exams and smash them without doing all that much pre-study.
  13. Hi Everyone, I've been quoted £260 for my medical, this includes full medical, hiv tests, chest x-rays and fed ex courier. Does this seem reasonable? I like this place as they do appointments on saturdays and as its a hospital your chest x rays all done in the same place and they courier. Is this a good price? Any help appreciated as always! Thanks
  14. Just a quick question to see if anyone has ideas. My OH applying for a 175, currently at TRA stage. My auntie has totally had enough, split up from partner etc........ wants to go with us. Can I add her as an adult dependant to 175, or could that jepodise our application. Would fam sponsorship be better once we are there? She is a qualified health care assistant, time served hairdresser but no quals. Ideas appreciated!!! Thanks :notworthy:
  15. hello!! Im currently in my last year of my Adult Nurse Diploma, and am due to qualify in February 09. I wanted to work as a RN in australia (preferably Perth) on a part-time or casual basis on a working holiday visa giving me the extra time and the opportunity to discover australia a little, gaining some experience and earning money. With a view to fly out in November 09; this gives me about 8 months to find a job and gain a little experience, although as the current job situation in the UK is bad this may not be possible. I would be travelling with an 'un-skilled' friend, while she will have no problem getting a job from what i can gather,i was unsure of how my job situation would work out. HAS ANYONE BEEN IN A SIMILAR SITUATION? OR ANYONE HAVE KNOWLEDGE ON THIS MATTER? (i have tried to read up this but piecing together all the fragmants are little bit of a bugger to be honet!!)

    young adult dependant

    hi guys im 43 and have been offered a job in bisbane hospital im a midwife, my hubby is a builder, we are now desparate to get to oz asap however our problem is my son hes 20 he has two jobs trainee chef and an apprentice carpenter he's been at college three years so theres no way hes going back down that route, we know we have to prove he his dependant on us. anyone else had a similar problem? we want to get a visa without an agent as the cost is something we would want to avoid but some members on this site have recommended a particular agent, im a bit suspicous regarding this as im sure this particulr person is searching this particular site to drum up business so we want to be careful. my son could not live on his own especially as we are now in a credit crunch, he only earns 150 a week also he is dyslexic so relies on us quite a lot when it comes to paperwork etc. we have thought about gathering clippings from our newspaper to prove just how much rent is also we are also thinking about going to banks and asking them what if any mortgage he could have (im sure on his wage nothing). I would like to think that they will see us as a family unit with us both having skills on the short list and when my sons qualified he too will be of benefit to them. would love to hear from anyone who has got an older child in on their visa without him applying to go back into education as that just isnt a real option. tracy

    Leaving adult children behind

    I am hoping that someone will be able reassure me about something that is worrying me sick. We have only just started the process to apply for a residents visa but I am already worrying about my eldest son (from a previous marriage). Although he is 27, he still lives with us – or rather he did leave home but returned about 18 months ago. I have spoken to him about us going to Australia and he seems fine about it – he has been talking about coming out at the same time on a one/two year working visa. The reason I am worried is that he does not have a good track record with money – the reason he came home was because he got himself in a mess with his rent and bills although we didn’t know that at the time. He now has a bad credit rating. Of course, if we move to Australia, we will be selling his home from under him. On the other hand, I do feel that it is about time he took responsibility for himself without us bailing him out (we have done this before, in the past). He is not lazy – on the contrary he works very hard – but does not have a skill that would enable him to move to Australia permanently. Half the time I feel so guilty for wanting to leave (leaving him effectively homeless) the other half I feel it may be the making of him. When he doesn’t have us to fall back on, maybe he will sort himself out. I have told him that he has 18 months – 2 years to pay his debts and start to take responsibility for himself, but what if his credit rating is still bad? He may literally be homeless. I am sorry this post is so long, but I am wondering if someone else has been in this position? I even find it hard to talk to my husband because he doesn’t have children and doesn’t understand the guilt.

    Child aged 12, Adult fare???

    Hi all I am a way off booking flights but just started an internet search and was surprised to see that my child who will be 12 when we migrate is classed as an adult with some airlines. I was going to start trawling through all the airlines when I thought to myself "somebody on PIO will save me all the hard work and know the answer to my question" .... do all of the airlines charge adult fares for over 12's
