|Hello folks - this is the first time on this site, please be gentle with me!
Quick synopsis of our situation:
Obtained visa in 2005
Lived in Perth for 1 year & had No.2 son in Subiaco
Returned to UK in 2006
Visa ran out in July 2010
Realised mistake & want to return
One of the main reasons we came back to the UK is that I had lost my mother & I suppose grief made it too difficult to settle. Time is a good healer & with a better frame of mind we want to return to Australia.
Husband is an architect, which is an 'in demand' profession.
We're not sure how to progress but really don't want to jump through all the hoops of going through the point system again. Is there away of avoiding this - seeing as we have previously gained one & our situation has only improved (work promotions etc).
Do you think we'd be better going through an immigration advisor for assistance or contacting the Australian Embassy direct?
Any help/direction would be much appreciated.
