    World Ending

    Well apparently the world may end this weekend :confused: so what are you going to do today, tell the boss what you think of him ? get dwunk, pay your bills off, wind the mods up , ??????????????
  2. Hi everyone, I'm 26 years old, have been married to my Australian spouse since February 2010 and we've been together for nearly 5 years. I have been living in Australia for 4 years with a gap back in England for 1 year in the middle. (2 years here, 1 in UK, then 2 more here so far). I originally came here to study, then moved back here to marry my partner. I'm here now on a spouse temporary visa, and I think a decision on my permanent visa will be made around February/ March. Things are not going very well in the relationship. We are arguing a lot, and my husband has developed depression. I'm also showing some symptoms of being depressed. We love each other but we have been talking a lot recently about where things are going and sadly the future is not looking bright for us at the moment. If I'm honest, I am not happy in the relationship and if it weren't for the visa, I probably would have ended it a few months ago. I am SO settled in Australia, I've been in my full time job for 18 months, I have a great network of friends, and I'm so happy here. I also brought my cat with me from England, and if I had to leave Australia there is no way I could afford to take him back with me, which breaks my heart. So basically, if we break up and I had to go home, I would lose literally everything I have worked so hard to build up over the last 5 years. The fear is consuming me and I don't know where to turn. I have been saying for a few months now that we just need to stick it out and stay together and see how things go. I'm scared however that when it comes to the decision on my permanent visa, do we have to attend an interview? If the relationship were to end, does anyone know what my options might be? If I tell the department that we have separated, Is there ANY chance that I would not be sent home, if I can prove I have strong ties and I'm settled here? I have been thinking about seeing a migration help office, but I thought it couldn't help to try and see if there is anyone out there that can tell me where to start with this. Thank you so much for your time.
  3. Hi All, As promised here’s a brief update on what’s been happening with the Aussie Dollar over the last week. GBP/AUD slumped to a 13-year low against last week with the Aussie buoyed against a broadly weaker Sterling by hawkish comments on interest rates from the governor of Australia’s Central Bank. Glenn Stevens, RBA chief, lifted speculation of rate hikes to come after saying the current rate of 3.00% was an emergency measure and normal levels would be a “good deal north” of this. The Central Bank slashed Australian interest rates to record low as it moved to cushion the economy from the global financial crisis, but recent strong data has prompted its easing bias, setting the stage for eventual rate rises. This was highlighted after Australian consumer confidence climbed for a third month in August to a near two-year high and demand for domestic home loans rose for a ninth straight month in June last week. In Australia, a thin data calendar will give way to Tuesday’s RBA minutes of the August board meeting, expected to give some insight into when we might see some monetary tightening. In the UK, recent Unemployment figures showed a 13 year high which had a negative effect on the Pound as they suggest that the deterioration in the labour market is yet to show signs of stabilisation. AUD Movement – High’s & Low’s of last week (10/08/09 –14/08/09) High’s: 2.0068 Low's: 1.9584 A movement of 2.47% Difference on £200,000 High: 401,360 AUD Low: 391,680 AUD Difference of: 9,680 AUD. Whilst FX isn't the most thrilling of subjects, the sooner you begin to think about your money transfers, the more likely you are to make your money go further. Regards Jon Sermon HiFX
  4. Hi All, Here’s an update on what’s been happening in the currency markets over the last week. The Ozzie Dollar found support last week from the release of the minutes from the RBA’s MPC meeting earlier this month which painted a cautiously optimistic picture of the Australian economy. Meanwhile, the CPI data painted a mixed picture with the headline number showing prices rising at a decade low 1.5%y/y however the core figure (+3.6%y/y) remains stubbornly above the RBA’s 2- 3% target band and this could prevent the RBA cutting rates further in the months ahead. This week, attention turns to the NAB Quarterly Business Confidence Survey (Tues), New Home Sales (Wed) and Building Approvals (Thurs) for further signs of stabilisation in the economy. AUD Movement – High’s & Low’s of last week (20th – 24th July) High’s: 2.0399 Low's: 2.0019 A movement of 1.9% Difference on £200,000 High: 407,980 AUD Low: 400,380 AUD Difference of: 7,600 AUD Whilst FX certainly isn't the most thrilling of subjects, the sooner you begin to think about your money transfers, the more likely you are to make your money go further. Best Regards, Jon Sermon HiFX

    Defacto relationship ending

    Hi, I have been on a defacto relationship in Oz for the last 4 years, we were sent the PR forms ages ago but stupidly I never went through with it. I have a life here, a job etc. are there any options avaliable to me besides asking my work for sponsorship? I have informed immigration a couple of months ago about my new relationship status and have heard nothing as yet. Just trying to assess my options. Thank you C
