I've been a long time reader but this is my first post onto the forum.
Myself\My wife and our two kids (3/9mo) are looking to move out to Adelaide in mid 2014. After a mammoth 30,000 word ACS RPL and a 3month wait we finally got a positive skills result on Wednesday and are over the moon :)))
Now it feels like I can say hello properly, because before this everything seemed so uncertain. If the RPL had not gone well then I was prepared to drop out of the site without making so much as a ripple in the pond, so to speak.To those that have, or are going through this process I think that this is my happiest part so far without question. Once the skills assessment is out of the way it feels like a massive weight has been lifted off our shoulders, especially when I remember the work that I put into the RPL.
We are using a MARA agent for the process and I have every confidence in their ability to take this through to a successful outcome.
Although the RPL is only just in the rear view mirror I'm already starting to look forward to making initial enquiries about shipping, pets and flights. I think that my wife and I are finally allowing ourselves to start looking into researching possible neighbourhoods and schools. Over the coming weeks we both hope to contribute a bit to the forum and look forward to chatting with some regulars and newcomers alike.
Now that I have gone through the ACS RPL I would be happy to lend a hand to those just starting the process, as a way of giving back to the community that we are about to rely on so heavily.
All the Best
