  1. Hi My ex and I came to Australia together. I was sponsored on a 457 visa and my partner was added to my application. Since then we have applied for the 187 visa and had a baby. Fast forward a few years, baby is now 3 our 187 application was rejected (usual reason - company couldn’t justify my position and afford to pay me..) - our migration agent said this was ridiculous and that many others had been rejected for similar reasons so we appealed in July 2017. We are now all on a bridging visa. However, pressures of uncertainty all just got too much and we are now going through a messy break up. He has moved away and the split is looking permanent. So I am now unsure what to do, I know I need to inform immigration/AAT of this and am planning to do so. But I am also worried about what will happen to my ex. Will he have to leave the country despite the fact his child is here, or will he be offered a way to stay when immigration get in touch with him? He has asked that I do not inform immigration if this, but am really worried that this could affect all our chances of staying and I know as soon as my employer knows that they will inform AAT anyway. Does it matter how long we were together before this or the fact we have been waiting so long for a decision? Or does the fact that it was rejected and it’s now on appeal work against us? Thank you in advance for any information you can offer it really is much appreciated.
  2. Hi guys, Long story short. I moved to South Oz from Cornwall in 1992 at age 11 with my parents. My parents moved back in 2005 for work. I stayed - had a girlfriend (became my wife)/was @ uni, then I started a career......I had a very traumatic experience @ work in 2014 which destroyed my mental health, career and marriage, all no fault of my own; i've been heavily depressed and anxious for the better part of 2 years. I had a little boy with my wife (currently separated) who is 3. I have 1 Bachelor of Psychology degree, a Masters in Social Work and a Masters in Marketing, so i've got a wide net for employment. Right now i'm self employed, making TV commercials, graphic design - all media stuff. I live alone now and can't see myself ever being happy again, BUT, when I think about my family (mum/dad/brother/niece/cousins/friends etc etc) and Cornwall I get a strong sense of connection/hope and love; something i've been lacking for a few years now. My choice, which feels like Sophie's choice is this: 1. Stay in Oz for my son. I will have a relationship with my son but everything else will be pretty grim, especially when my wife moves onto the next guy, and i'm around to see my son living with him. 2. Move back to Cornwall and have a big family again, start afresh etc. Try and find a way of keeping my son in my life - Skype, holidays etc. So the choice is either to remain in Oz completely unhappy with the exception of my son, or move home to Cornwall where I have a sense of identity, family, a sense of community and belonging - something Australia doesn't really have. I guess i'm putting this down on virtual paper because I want to see what other's think of this - all opinions are fine. Please don't kick me while i'm down. If you knew the traumatic event that started everything you'd understand. I'm not one of those dads who wants to leave his son. I don't at all, but I also don't want to die alone in a country that isn't 'home', and continue being miserable. I've been trying to get better for 2 years now but the only light I can ever see at the end of the tunnel is Cornwall. Anybody had a similar experience?
  3. Specifically in NSW Struggling a bit with this one - getting quotes seems painful and the price varies wildly - NRMA seems very expensive for a decent level of cover, but most of the competitors' websites look like they are 2-bit outfits TIA :-)

    Breakdown before PR granted

    Is there a high possibility that pr will still be granted, if the relationship has recently breakdown (its almost 2 years since the TR being granted) and the applicant already has a stable admin job and can support herself? thanks in advance!!:biggrin: or does it really need to be either in a domestic violence situation or decease or so as stated in the website?
  5. Does anyone have experience of a relationship breaking down before PR is granted? I am due to apply for PR around November this year, but have hit some difficulties and don't know if I can continue living with my partner. We have a child together who was born here and is a Citizen. I'm feeling very vulnerable as I have no family here, no money of my own and at the moment not sure if I even want to stay- but having a child complicates the process- I can't afford a lawyer at present and haven't told DIAC as the split is not finalised. Will myself and my child be made to leave? Would they make me leave but not the child? Anyone been through this? I even wondered if ironically I would be MADE to stay because of the child. Thanks all.

    Breakdown of costs to ship dogs to OZ

    Hi all, am wanting some info into the cost of shipping our lovely muttleys over to OZ. I would like to sort the process out by myself in it's entirity. Is there anybody on here who has done this and can give an approximate breakdown of the costs involved, eg. vets fees, price of permit, price of crates, flights, quarantine. How much would I be likely to save in undertaking all this myself? I currently have 3 dogs - all fairly big and obviously the expense of taking all of them especially using a relocation company will really hit our finances hard. We may have to make some really tough decisions about them if it is going to work out really expensive :cry:

    At Breakdown Point!

    Thats it, i really am ready to scream and run away! The removals are coming tomorrow morning and i have still have a couple of things to collect from storage, things in the loft and clothes all over the place! And my the other OH? Well he's at work of course leaving me to get on with it. Feel better for my little rant, sorry peeps :realmad:
  9. Hi guys Im in the early stages of applying for my 457. My employer has nominated me and my defacto partner and step daughter. If the relationship ended during the application process how would it affect things? I intend to go, but how would I inform the diac and employer? Cheers
  10. I posted a few months ago about this but now I am getting really worried. I have informed immi that my partner and myself have broken up and that we have a 5 month old baby, I have sent her birth cert etc and now I am just waiting..... Time is not on my side,as last week was told the owners of the house me and bubs are living in has sold and we now have 6 weeks to move out and find a new home. Because of my visa status and my lack of help from centrelink till my visa is decided on, who will want to rent their home to me? I am hardly a safe bet at the mo. Time is ticking away, I am so stressed, have lost 15kg and feel like my life is hanging in the balance. Immigration are aware of the situation and dont seem to care :sad:
  11. Hi All, Need some advice.... Quick summarisation ...in short I was on a defacto visa but due to circumstances the visa had to be cancelled in Aug 08. The reason behind this was domestic violence issues due to my partners disparaging behavior. Now I have since lodged an appeal with the recommended paperwork showing proof and documentation of my partners behaviour which was sent in Nov ’08 Now I appreciate there is a backlog to immigration PR visas at present but I may have to head back to the UK for a while due to family reasons... This gives me a bit of a dilemma as I have not yet had any status of my visa since May last year..and the news I had then was that a case officer wasn’t even assigned to my appeal for PR…so I am fearing that if i do go back to the UK i will lose the appeal to my visa.... I basically am looking for some advice if i should chase immigration or just head back to the UK as they have all my contact details...ie email/phone address if needed..... Again i know there is a backlog and mine is probably at the bottom of the tray but im getting a bit anxious now as i may have to head back shortly... Thanks for your comments... Stephan
