I apologise as I didn't mean to offend. I was just curious as to why you couldn't work? I don't understand the whole visa differences, and just assume that for all visa's you can work unless it's a tourist visa. But your one was student then moved over to a sponsored one. In the end, these are the laws of the land - so we just need to abide by them. Atleast you get time with your child. I'm not saying your scamming! Please don't misunderstand me. This is a forum to support one another not to attack each other. I feel your frustration brother , and truly
Hope you get what you desire, but really look into local council run Playgroups- they are amazing and really assist a child's social development.

QUOTE=MQadi;1977443]I don't work because I'm not allowed to!
When I was student here for almost 3 years I was working and paying tax and everything was going great .. also I was paying heaps of money for my education 50k per year. Also my wife works and been working for 5 years here and been paying tax. Whom ever thinks its free we all know who they are and check how many ppl scammed centrelink and what is there background.
Alhamdullah I'm with my family but as a man who worked very hard in his life and on his education i expect to get a right to work too so i can progress in both professional and normal life.
No one is ditching on the government as you claimed and i can see who is the one with attitude here.

Be more respectful to people this is all what I can say.

@MQadi - you said you dont work? so ofcourse you wouldnt get CCS... you would be expected to look after your child. These ccentrelink benefits are not for 'free' - that is all taxpayers money, and as a tax paying born breed Australian! I would not want to see my money being wasted on parents who just choose to have their child/ren in care b/c of the subsidies we pay! check up- local council run playgroups, im sure your child will get all the social development thy need through that.
Please do not 'ditch' the AUS government! Your attitude is not viable. I wouldn't complain too much - atleast your with your child and partner!

I would tell you why it's unfair, because as a young parent you need to work your life out especially in a foreign country, you need to work your a** off to be able to cope with what is coming and what you planned for!

When it comes to what I can provide as a parent is different to what what the care institutions would provide for children ( socialising, games, personal development and many more )!
On tbe other hand I wish I can be able to provide for my family and make things better
..

How is it unfair when it is the same as 2 citizens?
For child care if one parent is at home (regardless of citizenship or visa status) then there is no child care rebates. Why would there be when one parent is at home able to cater for the child?
I'm a citizen and my wife has PR. I work full-time and we are only eligible if my wife is working, studying or volunteering.
I work from home 2 days a week and look after our son those days to help make it viable.
Seeing you are subject to the same conditions as a citizen I really don't understand how it is unfair.
If you are referring to you want the child to go to daycare for social and learning side of things then fair enough, like a citizen you can go and volunteer at a charity.

My agent did it for me, actually for my wife and son, my wife was granted this morning for one month without 8503 restrictions, as for my son they asked for photo of his passport, which was provided earlier. Anyway he should be approved soon. Honestly we were not expecting the grant, she provided proof of work, bank statement... the usual

I was studying here in Sydney and while I'm studying we got married and we didn't lodge our application that time till almost two years in marriage she came to live with me in Jordan for a year and this was the time we lodged our 309/100 from jordan in march2019. In july2019 i got granted visitor600 12 months, 6 months on each arrival
She was my sponsor and my father too. But the thing is that I don't work, I do have Medicare I never use alhamdullah but what they say is that we dont pay anything for her childcare as I'm on a visitor visa here and I would be taking care of her by my own while my wife at work. Even though I'm Jordanian and my daughter is Australian and she got her citizenship bydecent in april2019. And she is fully ready to go to child care it's very unfair.

That's weird - are you waiting on a visa 309? If so you can work on that, right? And CCS is based on activity you and your partner do and the income you both earn. Unless you're earning above 180k per year her subsidy will be minimal. The visitor visa shouldn't be the factor impacting on her receiving subsidy.
Did she sponsor you on a tourist visa and a visa 309 at the same time?

QUOTE=MQadi;1977095]Did you guys tried to sort out the childcare subsidy for your children from centrelink.
What makes me very pissed that my sponsor can't get child care subsidy as I'm here with her in Sydney on a visitor 600.. like I have to be overseas so they can pay subsidy for her .. i think as I'm on a visitor visa and choose to be with my family and provide help made me throw my personal life out of the window .. and it's not fair for my wife not to get any childcare subsidy because I'm here with her .. of course I'm here but I can't work and I can't study !
It's very annoying

Again the are options like you doing volunteer work for a not for profit. That's what my wife did.
Otherwise there are other options.
The CCS is only for when neither parent is at home to care for the child.

Don't worry about it. Maybe the way how I describe it wasn't the best and I actually didn't know that I can volunteer until you guys told me .. I think it is the plan !
And yeah we go to different places such as libraies and soft areas around us but the idea it's so limited and we started getting board of all of that. Also I've been doing this to myself to be a lawful citizen I was on a student visa here and after I graduated I cancelled my visa so I can apply offshore as what the immigration advise me that you would be doing something bad if I applied onshore. And here I'm I now I cant even work that's what is it all about...
Thank you guys for support and merry Christmas and happy New year ❤

Just a clarification (pedantic wording is what the government is about and a common confusion)
Volunteering is at charity or not for profit.
Had someone choosing to "volunteer" at a cafe, I think her sisters?, get a rude surprise that it was unpaid work.
Basically if it is something that an Australian citizen wouldn't get paid for its okay, Vinnie's, salvos, RFS, Westpac helicopter are the main ones that come to mind

Sure was... have you heard anything since you got the RFI in November?

Did they do interview with you or your partner yet?
Any updates anyone? It was a quiet week...
We had our phone interview two weeks before the RFI in November, and only my partner (the applicant) was interviewed for approx 15 minutes. We had another RFI about 12 days ago requesting for my partner's army booklet to be photocopied and translated in full. We had already done this but our agent only told us to photocopy the pages that had writing on them, but they have requested the whole book (even blank pages). I guess this is so they know we have not left anything out. We submitted it instantly and now we are waiting for a response.

Hey everyone,
I received a correspondance from the immigration last night and it was about informing me to leave Australia for the grant of my visa 309/100.
Also to renew my AFP clearance.

The visa been lodged from Jordan and processed in Beirut visa centre.
Been married for 2 years and 4 months and knowing another 7 months before marriage

DOL 3/March 2019
Visitor600 Grant 4/Jul 2019
RFI 17/Oct 2019

I would say it took my visa 10 months. They didn't contact me or my wife "sponsor" on phone.
