My husband and I are seriously considering a move down under. He is 41 and a builder and we have four children aged 1, 3, 6 and nearly 18. The eldest is not so keen but we are hoping to persuade him. How long does a visa usually take?, are builders still in demand?, are there plenty of oppertunities for teenagers? Which is better brisbane or Perth? if we applied after the eldest turned 18 would he still be a dependant on our application?We have funds of about £600,000 does that make a diffrence on the application?Sorry about all the questions but this is such a live changing moment we want to make sure we are doing the right thing.
