  10. Hi Guys, we have been in Perth for 3 and a half years now and although we love it we have only made a handfull of lovely friends. We are from Fife in Scotland and have an 18 year old son and a 14 year old son. We are young parents, 39 and 42 and love the outdoors and nature. We love BBQs and would love to meet more friends for socialising and having fun through Summer. Would love to hear from any lovely families out there.
  11. Hey all I thought I would share our experience of getting our certificate copies certified up here in Scotland. We got a few done a few months back at a Solicitors and were very lucky as they only asked us to donate something to their charity box in the office. Then I read on here that a Justice of Peace can do it for free in Scotland also. So for the main application we contacted the council who gave us a list of names, I then called one two days ago and he said to pop around his house this evening. He sat there and very kindly signed 20 odd documents for us and didn't ask for a penny...he said he wasn't able to accept anything anyway, monetary or gift (although we did leave a bottle of something) and that's it. All done and dusted within a few days. I just wanted to post this for anyone in Scotland to show how easy it is Especially after hearing so many stories where people have paid a fee per document! Away to finally put in our main application...soooo excited!
  12. Hi Guys! OK so my name is emily, im 29, and have been here for 3 months now. My boyfriend (anthony) and I moved out here at the end of June for some better weather and work (for those of you who know Glasgow it is cold there). We are going to be here until june 2012, and maybe longer if we get sponsorship. we live in St Kilda and love it, but im starting to miss the girly banter back home, and hes really missing football chat (not aussie rules, real football, e.g. rangers, celtic, manchester). I know im 'coupled up' now, but id love to meet some girls, who are not too settled down, who can go out without their boyfriend on a night out once in a while!! Me and my boyfriend would equally like to meet couples too, just anyone who is up for a laugh! gimme shout if u like!! cheers..em x
  13. Can anyone let us know how standard grades in Scotland are assessed in Australia, our oldest will hopefully have 4 to 5 standard grades all at credit level when we move next year. What qualifications will this give him in Australia?:arghh:
  14. Hi, PROSPECTIVE MARRIAGE VISA LODGED/ WHAT MAY THE TOURIST VISA REQUIREMENTS BE?) Madly in love with my aus fiance - we met in Scotland (my land)in March 11 and fell pregnant within that month. We lived together for 3 months until we made the decision to move back to Oz to live and raise a family. My fiance had taken a year career break over here and has now moved back to her excellent job in the Australian Government - i plan to join her in a month. It is now September and we have not yet lodged the prospective marriage visa. But when we do in a week, I am hoping we can get a CO asap and advise them of my intention on heading over early for the arrival of our baby. Q1. Does anyone know if you still need to meet the tourist visa criterion i.e $3000 for 3 months and $6000 for 6 months etc or as she has a job with maternity pay, they may waiver the criterion a little due to her income supporting me? I am a chef but there is no work in scotland so we have found the last 4 months hard trying to save for PMV and flights along with bills being executed over here. Thank you for reading my post. Q2? Can you call up and get a CO immediately for a PMV?

  16. hi everyone, Just dipping my toe in the water here Potentially have a job opportunity in Melbourne on a 457 VISA. We are a family with 3 kids aged 12, 5 & 2. I've managed to get lots of great information just from browsing the forums here. I'd be really grateful for ANY information on Melbourne such as suburbs to live in which are good for high schools & primary schools. Also just generally how does everyone find it?!! This job opportunity has come out of the blue & we could potentially be moving by the start of 2012. So we're under a bit of pressure to find out whats its like Thanks

Can any1 tell me what the next step would be if i was successful in getting my skills assessed. Thanks

  21. Hi , just wondering if anyone else has experience in taking children to australia who are under 18 without fathers permission, my son is 17 and daughter 16 we have decided to apply for a 176 family sponsor visa as we could be waiting months for the SMP's to be released, anyway months ago I managed to get in touch with my Ex huband (who has had no contact with them for years, we moved to England 9 years ago) he agreed he would get a statutory declaration signed giving permission for them to live in Australia, I even sent him a form with all the appropriate details all he has to do is get is signed in front of a solicitor,since them I have sent messages asking when I will get it with no response. As both my children were born in Scotland, the Scottish Law states that once a child reaches the age of 16 the parental responsibilties cease,except for guidance until they reach 18,therefore my question is that on the visa application form , the question "Does any other person have custodial,access or guardianship rights to any of these childre" Will it be OK to answer no? Any help in this matter would be apprecited, sorry for such a long post. Veronica
