Took ielts. Don't feel confident in the reading result and have a poorly child that I think may effect our medicals.
Feeling downhearted with it all.
Thanks for your response.

The migration process is long and hard and it's normal to feel down at times but you need to keep focussed. Immigration is not simply going to refuse your visa on the basis on your child's health - each case is decided on its own merits and typically, as long as you do not have an illness which will put a significant strain on the health service, then you should be fine.

There are loads of agents who specialise in difficult cases involving health issues. Most offer a free initial consultation, so you've got nothing to lose by contacting them and discussing your concerns with them. It may turn out that you are worrying over nothing, which is oftentimes the case.

Good luck.

How ill is your child? What condition do they have? Like Maz says there are agents who can help. I didn't use an agent and got my visa even though I have epilepsy. It was an agonising wait though taking much longer than others. As you'll see from posts on here everyone gets anxious, even angry waiting but we all have to do it even without medical issues.
When do you get your ielts results?

I second what maz and shel say, a poorly child doesn't rule you out. My son is autistic and we got in, also applied ourselves, it just took a little more time as we needed drs reports etc.
It's s very stressful process though but don't give up, as they say 'where there's a will there's a way'.

My son is a chronic asthmatic. He has been in and out of hospital for most of the last 7 months. We have just been told that the medication to try to stabilise him has effected him in the long term as his consultant advised that we go no where and stated tat he would not support my son being moved until he is more stable.
A part of our reasons for moving was the warmer climate in the hope that this would improve his breathing.
My IELTS result should be back next week, I am dreading it.
Thanks for your support. I guess I'm just having a bad week!

I would trust your Doc on this. If he is against the movement till the kid is stabilized then if I were you I will heed to that advice.

Apart from that, as others have pointed out, the process might be longer for you. But that does not mean it won't work.

Keep you head high and move on.
