Is it advisable to bring your toddler and husband with you while on a student visa?

Hi. I'm new here and planning to go to Melbourne on a student visa entry. We don't have any relatives there but the only option we have is to bring our toddler with us since no one will take care of our son here in the Philippines. Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Yes. It's always better when you are together. It will be expensive, yes. but it will be worth it.

    @Themilkspills Coming from a Student Visa, I would say it would all depend on your finances. I wouldn’t advise bringing your child here but if you have more than enough like your tuition fees are already covered as well as your living expenses then you can.

    same dilemma tayo, except that pr kmi, i strongly suggest you bring them along with you. expensive and will take a lot of patience and hard work sa inyong mg.asawa pero that's better kesa hndi ka mapakali na malayo sila and wlang mapag.iwanan dito sa pinas. anyway 2 naman kyo ni hubby e, di kyo ma.zero bsta tyaga lng hanap kahit anong mpagkakitaan.

    3 out of 4 of my friends here, isa muna ang nauna. then after medyo ok na income niya and the confidence level is higher na that they can cope with financially, like after 3 months or more, sumunod na spouse & kid. at the start challenging...

    and they live happily ever after ;)

    @DreamerA sa mga kakilala kong nabanggit above, 1 nauna. Sumunod ang asawa & anak after 3 months or more noong medyo ok na income sa 1 na nauna. You can always plan your path to take...

    @DreamerA hi, based on my own experience, we took the risk to bring along our toddler who just turned 2 at that time. 2 kami nagwork to make both ends meet, hindi tlga kaya pag isa lang when you don't have enough money saved for the tuition. my husband at that time took any job, two or three at the time kasi he can work full time and i can do part time work. wag lang tlga maging mapili sa umpisa. my daughter is being taken care sometimes by a lola we know for 3 days, the other days nasa daycare siya. last july my husband found a job inline with his previous work experience, while in november i finished my degree. By the way we are located in regional qld. :)
