Greetings All, I mentioned in the " is honesty Always the best policy thread" Our situation in that Thorn having followed dept guidelines had informed our Housing Association that he would be coming to the UK for three months to help me submit my Visa & get everything ready for my move to Australia. His Return ticket is booked & payed for, & he is due at Heathrow in just under two weeks. Having informed the Housing they threatened to take away our little home, Thorn has been to several different meetings with various departments & the final result is that they WILL take our home away if he leaves the country for more than a month. This is being decided by one man who had a choice to allow our decision, but has chosen to make Thorn homeless again & this means I wont be able to submit my Visa & go to Australia. We have about a week to sell up the home Thorn has made for us in Brisbane , Everything will have to be sold. What we need to know is How can he stay in the UK he is coming on a Tourist Visa, with a three month return ticket. If after this he was to leave the country for say a week in Europe & then come back into the Uk could he remain in the UK for a period of time while we look into getting him a Spouse Visa for the UK instead. This is not what we wanted but we are having so many problems just getting the most basic requirements in Australia we can't even get started. We haven't seen each other for 18 months & Thorn has worked endlessly to get us established in Brisbane, but has been constantly let down in both Housing & work issues everything we have done has meant a legal fight with one dept or another. & this last one will more than likely drive Thorn out of his own country. This is what our lives have been filled with for the last two years endless battles with beaurocrats. We have very little money so our choices are heavily influenced by department policies all the time. We really appreciate any help we can get with this. What would you guys do, with a week to sell everything you own & a life changing decision to make ?
Just a rant really... sorry in advance! Basically, Emirates are getting worse. Their Customer Service is dire, they are consistantly late and doing my head in. My sister lost three days of her 3 week holiday at Christmas. She was put in a hotel and told they'd be on such a flight one minute, another the next. As they were about to settle down for the night they were checked out and hauled back to the airport only to be told the flight was full. This happened TWICE more before they eventually got here, not having had a minutes sleep or respite. For their trouble and inconvenience, they received the princely sum of 54GBP. Bloody marvellous eh?? They spent more than that phoning us to vent their spleens!!! Everyone understands delays and all that but it is the total lack of communication that fries my brain. My parents and daughter are due this evening. Another 31/2 delay with no guarantee that they made their connection in Dubai. I am run ragged trying to get through to someone who speaks sense. None of the options on the stupid automated response system fit my enquiry and the bloke I eventually spoke to say they have NO record of either of my parents or my daughter. I know they are not wondering round in Birmingham... I am going to SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :arghh: Nelson
