Coming out of the woodwork

Hi all,

finally decided to come out of the woodwork and contribute.

My name is Mark and our application is a 176 state sponsorship.(Victoria)

Application done on 07 Feb 08. Online.

It took me the whole of 2007 to gather info for the visa application.

I am a Maintenance technologist and aim to live in Melbourne.(Have a sister living in Endeavour hills so it will be a nice support base.)

I could not get permission from x wife so we decided for my wife to adopt kids. This took us 4 months from start to finish.

So if there are any of you out there that are struggling to get hold of your x spouse, go the adoption route.

I will be glad to share any info required on this matter.

So now we wait, wait, wait

Regards

Mark

Welcome to the forum Mark, glad you decided to come outta the wood work. This place is great for advice and sharing, and mostly support. The wait is long and frustrating and forumites will keep you sane !!

Hi Mark

Welcome and thank you for sharing re about your kids - that is exactly what this Forum is all about and by sharing, you are no longer a "Rookie" in my eyes! Good luck with your visa - enjoy the waiting (it is a killer) but take the opportunity to learn as much as you can HERE about what you need to arrange, cancel etc - when the time comes, well, you won't have enough time :ilikeit: as crazy as the waiting has been for us, its evenmore hectic now getting it into action!

Hello Mark

i notice you applie don line in February - no news yet?

I applied 19 June and was then asked for my medicals; I did the necessary and it was acknowledged on July 24th with message "application being processed further"

Nothing since

I thought on-line applications were faster - any ideas? :ilikeit:

(My application is 175 skills independent)

Tks to anyone else who could give an indication
