Hello to all
I joined up yesterday and have been reading your posts and they are all really helpful. There is so much to do and learn about -exciting and scary!
We have just strarted our Visa application through a migration agency and they seem to helping us really well so far. My husband is the main applicant he is going through the process of having his skills assessed byt the Austrailian Computer Society. This normally would not be too difficult but he is a contractor and needs to get 12-13 referrences from all the places he has worked....
I am really looking forward to the next 12-18months of information gathring and getting to know some of you. Come August I am going to be rather busy as I am having my second baby. Can't wait to bring my children up is OZ
Welcome to PIA. It is a long process. Scarey and frustrating at times. Lots of ups and downs and waiting.... oh the waiting.
Good luck on your journey

As Pete says it can be a very slow process - but well worth the hard work and wait.
