Default Do I Affect our Chances?

My husband has been offered a job in NZ, I am 57 years old and my husband is 10 years younger than me, will that stop my husbands application, even though he has a job to go to? having read all the posts on here I am concerned

have a look at the points indicator if you are going under the skilled migrant route

had a quick look and did the calculation, he is extremely skilled and has a secure job offer, but I am just a house wife so I have no skills so it says we calculate 0 points so does that mean my husband will not be able to take up his job?

what points did you husband get for his skills and job offer?, you won't affect what he gets but in some cases you could earn him more. I don't think I earned my husband any more points on his application, nor did the children but after he got his job offer he went over the 140 so application was processed

He may be extremely skilled but is it in the area's that are required for NZ?

You [plural] will get no extra points for you but if he has enough points then there is no problem with applying. You go along on the application as a partner.
What is your points total total/breakdown?

there are lots of people on here with all sorts of knowledge on the requirements for different visa applications. I'm afraid that being only a secondary applicant my knowledge is fairly basic.

have a look round the Immigration NZ website and I'm sure someone will be along soon to assist if you still have some queries.
