Hi, I have been with my partner since Oct 2009. We met in a house share and did not share a room until after Christmas, therefore we do not deem ourselves de facto until Jan 2011. We plan to apply for de facto in Feb 2011, just to make sure we are over the 12 month period. However, during this 12 months we will have spent 10 weeks abroad (from mid Aug to end of Oct 2010). All of this time will have been spent together, bar my partner spending an extra wk in sth africa and I will stay an extra 2 wks in the UK. My only concern that although my parents will have been our 'base' during this time, we will have spent 7 weeks travelling in total. Do periods of travelling together go against the 12 month period? Although post etc will still be going to our unit during this time and my partner will be paying rent, due to my WHV coming to an end and my no longer being able to work, I am not contributing to rent during this period, my employed partner is paying for both of us and I will resume payment when I return to Oz. I also wondered if this would pose a problem? Thanks!
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi there, my partner and I have both been granted 119 visa's thus permanent residency visa's. My partner has got a sponsored job and I am the de facto partner/dependant on his visa. My question is what happens if you get to Australia and the employer isn't meeting the terms of the employment contract you signed? for example they say there isn't work available at the moment etc... I know this sounds insane but a friend of mine has just landed in Australia on this visa and has been advised by the company sponsoring her that work is slow at the moment and have thus suggested she works for someone else in Adelaide until the company need her. This sounds wrong to me on so many levels and totally illegal. Isn't the point of this visa to work for the company that has sponsored you?? Doesn't not working for this company affect your permanent residency status? Isn't the PR status dependant on you working for the company that has sponsored you for 2 years? Any advice would be much appreciated. For us and my friend... would your visa be cancelled and permanent residency revoked if the employer says they have no work for you?! I have read the literature but just want to know if anyone has been in this situation and what has happened? Were you able to stay in australia? Were you able to change employers?
The Station Tucked away in our subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that spans the continent. We are travelling by train. Out the windows we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at a crossing, of cattle grazing on a distant hillside, of smoke pouring from a power plant, of row upon row of corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of mountains and rolling hills, of city skylines and village halls. But uppermost in our minds is the final destination. On a certain day, at a certain hour we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and flags will be waving. Once we get there so many wonderful dreams will come true and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a completed jigsaw puzzle How restlessly we pace the aisles, damning the minutes for loitering - waiting, waiting for the station. When we reach the station that will be it!! We cry, "When I'm 18..." "When I buy a new 450 SL Mercedes Benz... "When I put the last kid through college..." "When I have paid off the mortgage.." "When I get a promotion..." "When I reach retirement I shall live happily ever after! Sooner or later we must realize there is no station, no one place to arrive at once and for all. The true joy of life is the trip. The station is only a dream. It constantly outdistances us. It isn't the burdens of today that drive people mad. It is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who rob us of today. So; stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice-cream, go barefoot more often, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, Laugh more, cry less, life must be lived as we go along. The station will come soon enough. -- Author unknown
