Default And now what?

Hey, PLEASE READ ON!!

This is my update after 20 months here in Sydney - Northern Beaches. In the beginning, for those who have read my last update:

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=592504

will know that I wasn't originally happy here. But a lot has happened since. My daughter now has an Aussie twang and my other half loves it here soooooo much...But sadly today the company has decided to end my sponsorship!!

A bunch of excuses, and reciting my one warning given 4 months ago, they decided to remove me!! I didn't even get any 2nd warning! Can they do this? who knows! maybe someone here!

Anyways, this is going to be really tough to break it to my daughter who is 11 and loves everyone at her school...

I feel really really down...

I want to get another job and stay here but it's such a short time 28 days!!


Please let me have your stories...Someone give me some hope

I cant imagine how hard this must be for you.

I would go home, talk to your husband and make a plan. Plan each day with various goals about what you can do next.

Are your skills in demand? I am just thinking how easy or not it will be to gain another sponsorship.

Oh dear, so sorry to read your news.
You may get more responses by starting a new thread in the general Aus forum or the barbie asking about finding new sponsor in 28 days.
Lots of luck to you

I think both OH and myself have jobs listed on the MODL list...Maybe that's good

btw, OH is a hairdresser.

It's all new to us this situation..We just want to do the right thing to make it work again....

Thanks for advice so far but please keep'em coming...They do provide few moments of shelter from the chaos we are in!

Could your other half get sponsorship as a hairdresser?

Is your OH working? Would his employer consider sponsorship?

Hey Sally

my OH, Anna, is weighing up that option too.

I think cost may be an issue as the salon where she works, have never sponsored anyone before. However, they do seem to be keen to keep her specially since Anna's been there, they seem to have increased in business!

Hey, that's just an option and we may offer towards the cost of sponsorship but...Ideally, I'd like to get a job.

This is my first time in trying to get a job, without a sponsor!!

Seems a lot of IT jobs out there, but would they skid-addle when they know I need sponsorship??!!

Man, I hate to be in this situation and pray that no one gets into this...


On a plus note, England won and are through to the next stage of WC we also beat the Aussies in cricket

Great sign!

May be worth speaking to a migration agent for some advice too.
Good luck with job hunting & you can but try

Can't believe this is the same company who gave me a bonus and not two months ago, moved me to their cutting edge unit!!!

Very fishy...

One thing though and maybe some expert can help me here please:

The letter says that any potential new employer will have to get me a new 457 visa...

Surely only DIAC can cancel the visa?!?

Can the company request DIAC to cancel the visa? on what ground?

Really hope it works out for you, and that either you or your wife can find sponsorship, would agree with previous poster and contact a migration agent for advice, the one we used in UK had offices in Suffolk and Perth so there must be some near you or just ring - good luck

Yes, the company does, in effect cancel your visa. It has an obligation as the sponsor to inform the DIAC that they are no longer your employer.
Then the DIAC cancel your visa as you no longer have a job. Doesn't matter what they say or not.
It's worth mentioning though, that the sponsor company is responsible for payment for your relocation back to the UK. So you need to contact the HR department and inform them of that particular obligation and arrange for them to pay your relocation costs (I only know this because a friend of mine ended up in a similar situation last year)

So at least you get your return journey paid for.... and that's for all members of your family!! You can always come back at a later date when you get another visa!!!
