    Well, that's the advice from two of our Aussies. I hope it helps.

    If you are in Australia...........Have you spoke with Centrelink about your dillema ?If your husband has been retrenched from his employment, this makes him a candidate to receive unemployment benefits for him and his family.As for other countries i do not know the procedure of obtaining welfare.

    She says she's now in Tasmania, Australia.

    She sounds like a foreigner, they get some kind of benefit too.

    Where are you now? What country? If in the USA, there is no allowance. Why is your husband not supporting you?

    Colleen, if she is a permanent resident her husband can claim unemployment benefits. The Government also pays heaps of money every month for each child under sixteen. Her husband should go to Centrelink and talk to them. If she is an Australian citizen she should have all this information. I wonder what made them go to Tasmania. It is not a place to look for jobs.
