Hi Dizzey, the short answer is no, not at this stage, you and the children need to have permanent residency status in Australia and be resident in Australia to qualify.

I am Australian, we have 2 boys, 7 and 4 years the 4 year old is also an Australian citizen but we get nothing, until resident back in Australia, and, if we leave Australia again, we will loose child endowment after 6 weeks. I hope this helps, sorry is not good news.....Geoff

Look up "Family Tax Benefit" and see if your family qualifies.....most families are able to get some extra funding as I think it tops out around $90k p/a.

See the link:
Family Tax Benefit

Good luck.

You should check with an accountant or Medicare. I think you may not claim child benefits. However, your husband maybe able to claim some tax on dependent/child support. Again, please check with accountant.
