    I am currently applying with my OH for a Contributory Parent Visa so that we can join our Daughter and Son in Law in Brisbane.

    We have only just started the application, well 7 weeks ago to be exact from when the POPC acknowledged receipt of our paperwork so now for the long long wait.

    Best of Luck

    Hi there - I joined the forum today after first of all saying bye to my daughter after her month long stay in the UK and finally making the decision to begin the immigration process. It'll just be me on the contributory visa - have to sell my property first to release equity to pay fees etc, but have very supportive friends and family here in the UK. All the very best of luck to you - I have heard from an agent that the whole thing shouldn't take longer than 18 months from start to finish, any comments on that? Anyway do keep in touch re your progress!

    Hi Gilly

    We were told that the Cont PArent Visa is taking about 12-14 months from start to finish.

    Then we will sell the house - I don't want to tempt fate and sell the house before the visa is in my grubby mitts. It's too risky to do that as I would never be able to get a house like I am in if I sold now and got refused for any reason, so we will just go down the route of waiting for that visa then put the house on the market and take it from there.

    We will be leaving our Son and his Fiance in the UK though and that will be hard to do but as he has told me you only have one life and you have to do what you want in life and not for others.
    He did say that if we didnt go because of leaving him and he decided to move to another country at some stage I would kick myself for not going to Oz in the first place. HE is so sweet.

    All the best and yes please stay in touch.
