We are Sharon, Andrew and 3 children aged 14, 12 & 7. This is our dilemma and really hope we can get round this!
Basically, we are a family of 5 trying to emigrate to Adelaide, Myself & Hubby & 3 children aged 14,12 & 7. Our problem is that my Mother in Law would be totally alone if we can't get her out there with us as my hubby is an only child and his Father passed away 18 months back. The Parent Visa app would take too long as she is 65 now, we could not afford the other faster Parent Visa, so we are really stumped is there any other way to get her out there and get a bridging Visa to fill in the gap? She would be incredibly vulnerable if we left her behind and could not make the journey alone to visit us either (she is a little bit ditsy bless her and would end up on a wrong plane lol!) I wondered if any type of bridging Visa's could help in this case?
Also our eldest child has Aspergers & ADHD and I've been lead to believe this will also cause a problem ie if he needs support in school he won't pass the health check and if he passes the health check he won't get support in school once in Australia, is this true? He is exceptionally bright academically (well above average IQ!) Just struggles socially especially around disruptive children.
Any help much appreciated as terrified our plans will hit a brick wall! Oh Hubby is a secondary school teacher so would be the main applicant.
