    Hi there ..I’ll make this story short,the long version is very long ..I came to Melbourne as a 16 boy (1999)to live with my dad who had emigrated to Melbourne years previous ..my dad has since passed and I now have no family in oz. my wife is Aussie born and bred , she has been to Scotland multiple times and loves it .she says she would happily go home with me ..however as much as I feel I need to go home to my family I can’t imagine how my wife will be/cope ...I’m very worried I will be putting her in the exact position I am currently in ..does anyone else have this worry about going back ??
  2. I don’t know much about these types of visas... So my Dad lives in Cairns, Queensland. He moved over on a marriage visa I think, his wife is Australian. I’m 24, my partner is 28 and my son is 1 and a half. Is there any way I could move my family and I over permanently as my dad is a permanent resident?

  5. Hi I am a Mum of 2 girls, 10 and 8 and we live in Roseville Chase. I have been in Sydney for 2 years now. As yet I haven't met many British friends. I was wondering if there are any mums out there who fancy an evening out? I like Sydney, but I miss those nights out with my friends at the pub, having a good old chin-wag! Let me know if you fancy catching up one evening, maybe in Chatswood, or even the city somewhere?! Catherine

  7. Hi Everyone ! Me and my finance and our little 1 year old girl are moving to Perth in October Im 20 years old and looking to meet other young mums to make friends with. Anyone out already or going out soon, let me know x
  8. Hello. Well have made it through the first 6 months and the festivities but am starting to feel a little homesick. However I am determined to stay positive. I need ideas of how my son and I aged 12 can get out together and meet new people. Can anyone make suggestions? :err: Thanks Jane
  9. I am looking for info on good schools around Ipswich and surrounding state and private as I am not sure. I have a 12 soon to be 13 year old son in final year of primary but from what I understand he would be jumping straight into secondary so I am looking for a school that is not too intimidating but good and friendly as he is currently in school in a small irish village. He is outgoing and loves sports by the way. On the other hand I have a daughter who will be 11 in her second last year in primary. She is quiet and doesnt like huge crowds so a big school might be difficult. I would appreciate any information as I am getting more confused on locations to settle. I just want to make sure we settle in a place where they can get a good school. If there are any Irish who have moved to this area with kids I would love to hear your views on the schools and education system and if it is a big transition from what we are used to. Thanks in advance D

    Help!! Mum wants to come too

    Hi, I am after some advice please if anyone can help. I lodged a 175 PR application in June and with the pace DIAC are working at at the mo I am hoping that by the end of December we will have a case officer. The thing is my mother and father in law are getting divorced and my mother in law wants to come to OZ too. Has anyone got any advice on how she could do this? She is 53 and would have around £50,000 savings once her house is sold. If i am right I understand that once we have been in OZ for 2 years we could sponsor her to come over. Am I right? Or would there be another way she could come over sooner. We are hoping to be in OZ by September next year. Any info would be much appreciated Cheers x
  11. They were reminding people what to do in case of snake bite on TV today, after that poor woman in Qld was killed this week. I was out walking in the bush today and spoke to my daughter who was with me about it, and it turns out she knew how to do the first aid (given that you know about it that is). Without panicking, it's worth knowing about I think.

  13. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone could recommend a nice place for a group of Mum's in their 30's for a good night out of dinner, dancing & fun. In Williamstown, Point Cook or maybe the city. Thanks :jiggy::jiggy::wink::laugh:
  14. Hi guys! To set the sceen ... I am 29, I have two chlidren (6+4). My dream is to live in Australia for a few years min, possibly settle down there. My problem is leaving my childrens father behind in England. I was raised my just my Mum and have no problem with how the kids could adjust, because as long as they are secure they can adjust. My problem is I have just given 9 years of my life to this man, we fell out of love and now I want to take his kids away. I am not sure how to start talking to him about this or how to answer the questions he is bound to have like, when will he get to see them, will he have to pay maintanance still ... or maybe it would be a good idea for him not to pay maintanace but save up to visit us instead? I need to be sure in my mind before I can talk to him so am asking for any advice ... I have also looked for advice on being a single parent and emigrating but can't find any. I am not even sure where to start on that one.
  15. I'm emigrating with my daughter and my mum. Just lodged my 457 application. Obviously DD is a secondary applicant as my dependent cos she's 5! My mum is 64, lives with me in the UK (her house but I pay the mortgage and bills and household expenses as she can't afford it)...so she's effectively financially dependent on me. I've included her as a secondary applicant on my application in the hope that this will be approved. Anyone moved over with parents on a 457?? Thanks!

    How can I get my Mum into Oz

    First post for me!!! My husband has been offered a job in Adelaide and they're offering us a temporary visa but we're pushing for a permanent visa. I'm a New Zealand Citizen but live in the UK and I'm planning on travelling to OZ using my NZ passport. My mother is a widow, age 59 still healthy and able to work but I couldn't leave her in the UK and take her 2 only grandchildren away from her...dilema. Does anyone know whether I could get my Mum into Australia using my NZ passport? She lived and worked in NZ between 1975 and 1981 and her older brother still lives in NZ but her other brother lives in the UK and she would still have a son in the UK, although we're trying to convince him to move too. She just can't afford to go for the Contributory Parent Visa and I really don't want to leave her here on her own. :sad: Any help would be great appreciated

  24. Morning all. My partner visa is pretty much ready to send but i have one question. Its about the sponsors working history. My wife is Australian and since the birth of our 2 girls, one in 2005 and one in 2010 my wife has been a full time mum. I have always been in work and support our family fully. She is eager to get back to work when our youngest is old enough to go into school. I am going to secure a job before we get there so i can start work straight away. Should my wife attach a statement saying that i will be working as soon as we get to Australia and once our youngest is in school then she will go to work also. We also have friends and family over there who said they would be able to help us if it came to it. Should i mention all this in the statement? Thanks in advance everyone Marc
