View Full Version : PACman, DHA reloction without posting?
was just wondering if anyone knows about relocating without a posting as such.
This is what is going on, my hubby as you all know is due home SOON, and the ship is going into refit in Melbourne so he will be spending a bit of time in Melbourne a month in total.(the refit is 3 months) he will be spending some time in Sydney as well, not sure how long but he will be travelling alot to both cities. Later this year early 2009 we will posted to Sydney for a course.
What I want, when huuby comes home I would like for him to take the ship down to Melbourne and then during the 3 months of refit we move to Sydney. I will be supported by friends while he is away and he will be move likely to fly home from Melbourne if we lived in Sydney rather than a 5 hour flight to WA, so we will get to see each other more...
What do you think, is it possible that DHA will move us, without a posting. I was thinking for special needs they might. I have heard that they have paid for couple to move as the house they were living in gave a member Asthma (sp) So my special need is PND, is that a special need. I just not sure I can stay here while my DH is just in Melbourne.
I WANT OUT!!
I have look at the PACman but it is so big I'm not sure where to look?

To be honest, I'm not sure if PND would rattle their chains unless you get doctors recommendations and so on. If they say no you can relocate at your own cost which will be HUGEEE ! or you could do what some do and that is do a partial move. That's if you fit the criteria whatever that is. Not sure what the rent implications will be though.
If you need a hand with anything, I'll be happy to help. I'm at Marilla House on Thursday and I think Friday is the DFA meeting and you're welcome to come to that you know and maybe you could get some info there from the other ladies but also make some friends. I say you're welcome cos the more the merrier and we all need friends. Relax and enjoy a cuppa !
I think this is something that was mentioned in Sea Talk. For Navy to have the option of a third port so rather than be where the ships port is and the ship in refit, you can nominate a place where you have friends n stuff. Wish I could find the copy of it though to confirm what I'm saying here. DFA are trying for it. If you have the most recent copy I think it's somewhere towards the back.
KJEmum, it's on the DFA page, but it is just something they are pushing for, not actually happening yet.
Is the move to Sydney for the course a permanent one, LP? I mean, are you posting to a a ship/base in Sydney after his course, or are you just going accross with him while he's there doing it? If it is a permanent posting, you may be able to push the removal up to go there before him (this is what we will be trying to do for Vic next year, so to be there before the new school year starts). It is definatley worth him asking about from his end (after all, you're only the civvie spouse, right:p).
Thnx for that mummof5. I was thinking it was Sea Talk but didn't check DFA in case it was there I saw it.
I def think there is more chance of you (lp) getting a removal if after refit he is to be posted to Sydney but at this stage you wouldn't have a guarantee of that. DHA tend to get a bit confused too. We were doing MWD(U), he was posted to Darwin for 12mths and the posting was extended. Trying to fit that onto paperwork for us to move up there was hard for DHA to get their head around as he needed a 'posting date or LSP' or whatever.
Sorry, it is in sea talk, on the DFA page....now I am confused, maybe I can get a job at DHA!:laughing:
Yeah what I would like to do is move there now and be there until...hmm well forever.
I just know that DH will have to go to Melb to do thing much more often than he should have to. But I guess I'll just have to wait till he comes home and tells me what he wants.
(cause really thats what it will come down too)

What time is M/house KJEmum
Tell them that you have a friend in Sydney whose having a baby in Nov/Dec and you HAVE to be there!!! :laughing:
Surely PND would be a special need? Isolation from friends and family only worsens it - and being here in Sydney would definitely relieve some strain for you. I reckon a dr's letter declaring recommendations for you to have a support network around you has gotta help.
I dont know much about Pacman (like you, I freak out everytime I try to look at it!) though I DO have access to homefind in Syd now (shhhhhh!!!)

Might help...? :confused:
Are you moving Ally?
Are you moving Ally?
No, no (though I'd love a 4bd with the baby coming!!! :D) No, my girlfriend is pregnant and her and her husband are living in RA. Houses come and go on Home Find so quickly and she works during the week and can't check it regularly, so I have her access so I can check it for her and contact her if something good comes up :yes:
Good idea....I am so not looking forward to finding a house to live in when we do move. We'l have to go RA though anyway, cause defence never have any big enough!
