Hi all! My family and I are due to arrive in Adelaide in July this year and we are currently investigating what our financial situation could be when we arrive. We currently both work full time and have the luxury of family to look after our pre school child, and to collect our school aged child from school etc, but in Adelaide we won't have family to help us. We are planning on my husband finding full time employment (fingers crossed) and hopefully I'll be lucky enough to find part time work. If I was unable to find part time work, or if the sums do not add up regarding my income and child care fees, what benefits would we be able to us? It does sound awful, by all means I do not want to move to Adelaide with the intension of "sponging" as I have always been a full time employment, but until my pre school child hits school age, benefits maybe something we will have to consider.
We have a 176 permanent residentís visa.
Any advice is appreciated :)
