My mother in law finally motivated my husband to get onto doing his half of my immigration forms. It's not like I haven't been trying to get him to do them or anything, he just doesn't listen to me at all....blames his inability to pull his finger out of his arse on stress.
Finally it looks like the forms will get completed and sent next week. Aussie police check is being sent today, I have my medical booked for Monday....and Greg has a strict schedule to get all his forms finished.
While the fact that the forms will finally get sent is a huge weight off my shoulders, the fact that the immigration offices told me that the time period quotes I got from immigration lawyers were bullshit upsets me. I was told the first section of the forms would take about 4 months to process which then would allow me to get a temporary work visa....as being able to work is the part I am really the most worried about. However according to the processing offices that part actually takes about 9 month on average.
I've already been unemployed for a year and a half, I have student loan repayments due October this year.....and even though I finished my degree when I was 22 I have yet to really do anything with it as I keep moving around too much. I'll be 27 before I can get a job here, and as everyone knows you have to start from the bottom regardless of what education you get, so really I'm leaving it terribly late to get a good career going before I planned to have kids.
It's all terribly fucking depressing really.
