  1. Hi all, This is my first post since my wife (29) and I (29), received our 176 visa for Perth and we're moving to aus at the start of August...getting excited now! We picked Perth following a reccie and fell in love with what we hope will be our future home for a very long time. In the UK I'm a keen climber and love mountain biking too, which I want to carry on down under. It'd be great to get a thread going to hear from anyone who climbs or bikes around Perth to get some ideas on where is good to go...anyone who's interested PM me and I'll sort a get together for like-minded souls who want to tackle some routes around perth. Thanks!!! Chris

  4. .ExternalClass .ecxhmmessage P{padding:0px;}.ExternalClass body.ecxhmmessage{font-size:10pt;font-family:Tahoma;}Right......... so, I have a life-long friend who has recently told me something that has got me having sleepless nights. She and her husband are in the process of immigrating to Australia, and have been saving money towards this big move for quite some time. In passing the other day, however, she metioned that her husband hasn't paid his taxes for the last couple years (knowing that they are leaving), and has therefore managed to save even more money to put in their kitty. Now, my dilemma is this: I feel so angry that someone has done this and got away with it!! My husband works all the hours God sends, to keep a roof over his family's head and does everything 100% by the book. I am full-time mum, and as a family living on only one salary - money is tight. This particular friend of mine is adamant that it's nothing to do with HER, that her husband hasn't been paying his taxes, but then in the next breath, it sounds like they are planning a blow-out holiday before they immigrate. I have mulled this over for weeks now, and can't decide what to do.... Is it the right thing to do, to notify someone (?) that I am aware that someone is fiddling their taxes? Or do I just let it slide and hope that "what goes around, comes around"?? OR: Has this only upset and frustrated me because I am JEALOUS, as we are not nearly in as a good a financial position as they are, and I doubt we ever will be!! It kills me that people like my husband and I, who are honest and hard-working, ultimately end up having to compensate for the people who do not pay their taxes. I don't know what to do????? I know this will destroy our friendship if she ever found out I told authorities, and I couldn't live with myself if anything happened and her husband got put in prison (maybe I'm being a bit dramatic here - I don't know what the penalties are!!) But every time I see this man in future, I am going to know that he's dishonest. BTW: We are in the process of immigrating to Aus too, and that's why I'm using this forum to have a vent! I know there's lots of other folks on our position, scrimping and saving every penny and this has really just upset me to no end. Any advice will be welcome. Thank-you.

    Between a rock and a hard place

    My partner and I and children (I have just had a baby) have an application in for a visa to Australia. When we first applied the plan was to go to Oz for five years or so, but subsequently my partner has decided he wants to go for life. I thought I would be able to return to the UK to live at any time (after the five years agreed with my partner), but sadly research has thrown up the Hague Convention which means that despite the fact we are all British, I would not be able to return with my children unless I had my partner's permission which I do not think he would give. My partner is determined to go with or without me and the children. I am now in two minds what to do - on the one hand there is the australian dream of sunshine, beaches and a new start after a turbulent few years where we have not had a lot of luck, but there is the real risk of losing my children if either the relationship does not work out or if I am so unhappy I want to come home or if the rellies are ill etc. On the other hand I could stay in grey Britain with a new life as a single mother, trying to explain to my first born why she does not have a Daddy anymore, but at least I get to keep my children. I will not be able to get any financial help from my children's father as he will be abroad nor obviously any emotional or practical help with school runs and all the things to do with bringing up children. I worry about the children not having their Dad and whether they will blame me in the future for them not going to Australia/being a family. The visa is imminent and I will need to remove my name and the children's names from the visa which is tortuous as it is so final in terms of the Ozzie dream, my relationship with a man I love so much, and the children having their father around (please excuse the emotion but I have recently given birth and am inevitably feeling more vulnerable and I am very upset at the moment). Whichever way I go, I will wonder whether I have made a mistake? And it will be too late - if I choose to stay in UK now, I wouldn't have enough points if I reapplied in the future to join my partner, if I go to OZ and it all goes pear-shaped, I can't keep my children. If only I had known about the Hague Convention before applying for a visa, or if only the law were not so strict....but if I had absolute trust in my partner like obviously the rest of you have, perhaps I would not be in this predicament at all. By the way, my partner will not sign a legal agreement to say I could keep the children. Comments or advice please.

    Primary schools Quinns Rock

    Dear all, I have looked at the website for one of the primary schools in Quinns Rock but I wanted to know if anybody knows whether either of the 2 primary schools have got "after school clubs"? Is this common in Australia or is it more in the UK? How do you cope as a working mother if you find that you need to work full time? My little son is 3 1/2 now and if we come over to Perth late next year I guess he would go to some sort of pre school. Has anybody had any problems in getting their children into the schools they wanted? So many questions...we are trying to read up on things on the Internet but there is nothing quite like getting advice from someone with first hand experience of course. Putting our house on the market in the next few weeks and will then have to keep our fingers crossed that it sells reasonably quickly so we can move into a rental property. Many thanks, Madeleine
