Default Welcome to Australia

After moving to Australia with me from Oregon 4.5 years ago - 3 different Visas and almost getting deported twice, the struggle is finally over for my wonderful husband

Sorry for the bad quality copy, couldn't be bothered dragging the scanner out



This is a huge surprise because we were told it was going to be up to another 6 months but there it is!

It's SOOOO cute because he's picked up all this aussie lingo from his co-workers and drops aussie words into daily conversations. I'm so proud of him and so happy he's here to stay.

He's so excited because he can do whatever he wants now, go back to school and work on his goals. After 5 years of putting his life on hold just to be here with me, I can't wait to see him become the person he wants to be.

THIS IS SUCH GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Massive congratulations to you both! Such exciting news

I remember when I got my permanent residence here in the UK. At the time I was still married but was already in a deep plot to get away from my ex husband. I applied secretly, on my own merit, as I'd come to the UK on an ancestral visa. Getting that permanent residence was the last thing I needed to get out of a very very bad marriage.

It came in the post. I opened it and my adrenaline started pumping. I ran upstairs and said to my ex 'look I've been granted permanent residence'. He shrugged. I said 'ya, and that means this house is mine now and I don't need you to survive anymore. So pack your sh!t and get out.'

Best day of my life

Oh I went alright! I'd spoken to the landlord about taking over the house, I'd filed for papers to be served to remove him - he didn't go peacefully, he made a mess of me before he went - and it all hinged on that one little stamp in my passport. Even when I think about it now it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside lol

I suppose I could've gone back to Canada but I love England with every fibre of my soul and leaving would have been worse than what I went through to get away. I've never regretted it for a second.

Dang, that would have been so satisfying! Way to take your life back

I was stuck in a bad marriage for 10 miserable years, from only 18 years old. I had my permanent residency but I would have liked for them to deport me! LOL My problem was that my 2 kids were American citizens and without my ex's permission I couldn't take them back to Australia, not even for a visit. So we were stuck for a long time. It wasn't until I met Stephen that he convinced my ex to just let us go and be happy. Miraculously it worked, I left and Stephen followed and now here we are I miss the US sometimes but honestly, I would have moved to Antarctica if it meant getting away from my ex.
