After a very traumatic week, we had our appointment with immigration yesterday. They were so helpful, really made us feel at ease.
If you are still under a 457 sponsored visa and either you or your employer terminate your contract, the sponsor has an obligation to fund the flights back to your home country. All you need to do is send your employer a letter in writing stating that you wish to go back home. Your sponsor must abide.
It was so good to talk to immigration yesterday, the lady sat and spoke to us for hours and had lots of information for us to take with us. She is also keen to see what happens with hubbies employers over the duration. Really last night I slept like a baby and there was no need for medication. She even took time to talk to me as I am not the primary visa holder. I would love to work with children and always wanted to become a foster carer, but was told by the hubbies immigration agent that I was not allowed to do so. Anyways I can and I'm now looking into it, this may just work out for us.... Lets see what the future holds for us.
Either way, if we stay we will try to make this work, and if we end up going back home, we will have our family waiting for us.
At least we can say we tried and will never live life with the huge WHAT IF???
But I must say, thank you to all of you, Your support and on tap help is just amazing, I love this site.
