  1. Here is your opportunity to praise, to rant, to give social commentary or whatever you like whether it's trivial, topical or just plain silly (just as long as you obey the forum rules....) Let me kick it off with: Is it me, or.... are there more butterflies around Melbourne at the moment? There were four around the outside of my daughters bedroom window this morning, I felt like I was walking through a classic Walt Disney movie! Ok, your turn.... Geoff
  2. Hi there, I'm looking to book flights within the next couple of days really and need some advice. I'll be flying from London and arriving at Melbourne. Looking at departing as soon after new year as possible and returning early July next year. At the moment I'm looking at a £1200 return ticket. Does this seem reasonable? I'm getting this figure from the booking tool on various websites, mainly the Asian airlines. I've not noticed any option for an open ended ticket option though, are they no longer being sold? Any advice on where to be looking for best tickets prices etc, very much appreciated. Cheers, Ryan

    Defacto relationship ended

    Hi, I am an Australian and I sponsored my partner to come to Australia on a de facto visa. Unfortunately we have broken up and he actually has not been in Australia since late Dec 2008 for a number of reasons. He wants me to keep the visa going until he has organised another visa. This has been going on for along time and has made it more difficult to let go of this relationship. Does anyone know what immigration does once you tell them about the end of the relationship. Do they notify both of you, do they give him time to try and arrange something, how long does he have before they tell him he must leave. Thanks any advice would be greatly appreciated. Sophia
  4. Hi All. My defacto relationship has broken down. I entered the country in Sept 2008 with my australian partner, I arrived on a 309 spouse visa. Does anyone know or has been through the same thing ? These things happen, so I'm weighing up my options. I am keen to stay in the country and really enjoy life here, I have a decent job and am making new friends in Brisbane. Once my partner declares the relationship over Ive been told by immigration I will be served with a "Notice to Leave" ? Then I would have 2 months to leave or apply for a new visa. Do I need to do this offshore ? What are my options ?

    How I ended up here

    Ok, I'd just turned forty, recently became single (not through choice), and was living in deepest Cornwall, In "Straw Dogs" territory in fact. I'd just got hooked up to this interweb thingy, and was having fun on forums, similar to, but not, this one. On one I got debating with a young lady, she was fun. We stared getting a bit too friendly and were asked to make our conversations more private. So we did. We carried on chatting, by e-mail and by phone, eventually getting webcams so we could see each other when we chatted. Things got more serious. She came over to the UK for 4 weeks, I went over to Aus for four. I proposed, she accepted. As she was in Aus, and her ex wanted access to their daughter, she couldn't move to the UK. Only one thing for it then, I’ll emigrate. So, after two years of online conversation, eight weeks together physically (very physically!) and one wedding, I packed everything up and moved out to Aus. Best move I ever made. Seven years on, still going strong!
