what am i doing?

Hi, I am a single mum of three who has been granted permanent residency in Oz via my bro and a last remaining relative visa. I am thinking of moving over in the spring. However, i am really worried that i have no job to go to, no housing and no schools in place! My brother and wife have give me a cushion of a few months to get myself sorted. Am i making the right decision? I figured my young kids would have a better life out there.However i am worried that under the assurance of support (2 years) that my brother has given - i might be living well below the poverty line.Do i work all the hours god sends and not see my children as much - or is that a just sacrifice for a better oppurtunity in life for them? Does anyone know if i am entitled to receive the equivalent of our child benefit under an assurance of support. Just thought it might help me while i get established. I have looked online and get list of things i am obviously not entitled to - but there is no mention of family benefit - if that's the right term for it. Please if anyone has answers or thoughts on this please let me know.
thanks

Hi,
You may want to assess critical risks, impact and benefits before you move. Alternatively, you can read more about OZ, find a job via Internet while you are making your decision.

Not sure your objective of moving, if you are doing ok where you are is it worth the risk?

Anyway, wish you all the best
