We are a family of 5, 2 Adults and 3 Children. My Husbands Parents live overseas however they are 60years and older. We wanted to bring them here in Australia for us to take care of them as they have no one else that can look after them and they are not of best health. Only to find out from the Australian Government they would be on a 15years waiting list if we didn`t want to pay. Alternatively we would be required to pay $42,000per person plus $10,000 as a guarentee to the Government.
We do not have this kind of money as we have a mortgage and other debts as well.
We also cannot afford to make regular visits overseas as it would cost approximately $11,000 - $13,000 as economy class airfares to visist them, which means we have no way of helping them to be with us or us to visit them.
If we could pay for there applications we could bring them here in 2 - 3 years and we could then look after them.
This would be a great help to bring our family together.
