  1. Visa granted 3rd July and we're full steam ahead - flights booked for 17th September, getting quotes from removal companies, working notice periods etc etc My 19 year old son (who lives with us) has said he no longer wants to come...he has girlfriend etc etc. Not getting anywhere with him - trying the softly softly approach, trying the sweetening approach and now moved on to good old plain bribery! We have asked him to commit to two months - he can come back if it isn't for him (he doesn't know but he will have to pay for his own flight!) OH has told his children - took it really well to be fair, followed it up with a letter reinforcing love etc etc. Now I'm scared.....my son has to come with us as I just can't bare the thought of leaving him behind! I'm getting nervous but know we have to make the move as we won't get the opportunity again!

    omg what a bombshell that has been dropped.......Jan 09 moved to Brissy on a 457....made redundant!!! now what?? how can i stay here.....175? 176? how long will that take? only got 28 days!!!! (already had my whv) but does anyone know if i can stay here and do any kind of work whilst waiting for another visa and which visa should i go for? arghh!! :arghh::arghh:
  3. :arghh: GUYS HELP!!! We have a 457 Visa in place OH flys out September I follow November. Oh company based in Sydney originally they said they would like him to be based and run the Melbourne side, great we looked into accommodation, education for our three children even as far as a quote to move some possessions across. Then yesterday the bombshell came via an e-mail with an attachement which was dated as being sent 30th June, BUT they had sent the e-mail to his Yahoo address which he has not been able to access for three months. It stated that OH would now be based in Sydney initially for six months then possibly based in WA. So now it is all change and basically start again looking for lovely areas to live which are reasonably priced with excellent public schools, in Sydney. I feel on my OH salary of $70,000 this is going to be a hard call, We need to establish if we have to pay for education in Sydney on a 457 as you was not required to in Victoria. The company said that hubbie maybe WA based after the six months so we again need to look into the same for that area. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated, I really do not know what I would do without this absolutely life saving site!!!!!!
