We wanted to apply for 175 visa but it seems that I may have secured a job on a 457 sponsored and payed for by the company.
Given I have three children should I wait and have the security of the 175 or go ahead with the 457??? As I am aware I can always apply for the 175 while I'm out in oz!!

The risk of 457 is that you will be a slave to your employer while waiting for PR, especially with 3 kids. If they choose to fire you, you have to leave the country within 28 days unless you can find another employer who will sponsor you.

Having said that, life is always full of risks :)

Thanks. Those are my fears, having said that. I've not been fired yet from a job!! But there's always a first time for everything! ;-)

U can process ur 175 visa while staying there in Aus. U only need to go out at the time of decision making by DIAC to award u visa.
