My wife and myself have been foster carers in the U. K for the past ten years. Currently we foster two sisters who have been placed long term with us, they have lived with us for the past 7 and a half years or so and are currently subject to a long term care order, there is no prospect of them ever returning to their birth family. Recently we appointed an emigration agent to explore the possibility of us emigrating to Adelaide, obviously because the girls have been with us so long we would wish them to come with us,,we have always maintained however that we would continue to support contact with the birth family, be it distance or a once a year face to face contact. This is all happening with the full support, agreement and funding by the Social Service department we are with. We are currently in court in an effort to resolve certain issues regarding the birth families consent and would need to know whether, in order to obtain a visa for the children would we need to have a full adoption order or would a special guardianship order along with a statuary- declaration from the birth family or the courts be sufficient. We would appreciate any legal information that you could provide to us in order to present to our Solicitors and the Judge who is involved with this case at Manchester Courts. Thank you for your time and co-operation with this matter. kind regards Martin Roantree
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi all, We have been trying for some time now to find a way to Emigrate as permanent residents to Australia with no joy. My husband and I have been foster carers for 7 years and both have an NVQ3 in health & social care (children and young people) which is not enough to get us through the process. We have contacted the local authority in Queensland to try to get advice from them but so far with no more information. Has anyone else been in or know of any similar situations that might help? Thanks Lisa
My OH's brother has been an Australian citizen for the last ten years and we were wondering if he was able to sponsor us to live/work in Australia. There is one problem though!!! and Googling this question has not provided any answers. My OH's brother is infact her foster brother and was brought up by her family since he was 18 months old. She thinks of him as her brother, refers to him as her brother yet the reality is, there is no blood relationship between them. Does anyone know how Australian immigration would view their relationship?
