    Hiya Jack

     

    I am much older than you but I can tell you what my kids do.

     

    After school, they go to clubs - things like soccer, football, swimming and stuff like that. We also go to the cinema, or down the beach, or meet up with friends, stuff that we did in the UK but it's hotter.

     

    The people are nice and so are the schools. They do give some homework but they try not to do it at weekends.

    Tell your mum this (or better get her to read it:biglaugh:)

     

    It can take anything from 10 months to 10 years to get a visa to stay in Australia. It all depends on what visa you apply for. It also depends on whether you have a skill that is in demand at the moment.

    As for cost It will again depend on the type of visa you apply for, how big your family is, whether you use an agent or not, etc.

     

    Have a look at this site http://www.immi.gov.au/immigration.htm it will tell you all about the visas available and if you are eligable to apply for them. The ones to go for if you can are perminant ones and independant ones, so if you are able to apply for a independant perminant one (175) then you could be there in 12 - 18 months and your parents will be able to pick and choose there jobs as they won't be 'tied' to one employer and be able to claim any benefits an Aussie can.

     

    If you look at most people signatures on here they have put their 'timelines' on. This helps work out how quickly or slowly things take.

     

    Hope this helps

    I would PM Graandjac or Ianb They live fairly local to you and are in a similar trades. They both have their visas and I'm sure would give you some tips and skill assessment proceedure info.

    Our family are due to head a bit north of adelaide a bit (Andrews Farm) hoping also to come across a bit of the building work.

     

    Good luck and ask as many questions on here as you need.
