    Question Centerlink, Separation & looming week away with the husband and children

    Hi all, I don't want to do anything wrong and in no way in my intention to be dishonest with Centerlink. This is my dilemma and will I get into trouble? what is the best way to go about it?

    In a few weeks my husband whom I have been separated from for nearly 18 months has invited me to go away for a week with him and the children. For sometime we tried to establish a relationship but I think the best we can do is friends. It has been very hard for me to even get this far! What I want to know is do I need to tell Centerlink? what will they do/say? What is the best way to prove that although we will all be together for a week there is nothing else?

    I would really appreciate some clarity. Thank you.

    I don't think you need to tell them at all. You won't get in trouble

    How sure are you though? I was just thinking if someone I know, knows about me was to phone them and say I went away they meaning Centerlink may misunderstand everythinlg! I am not a good liar at all and I think being honest will keep trouble far from me.

    You dont need to tell them unless your circumstances change as in if you move in together. I went to visit my ex with DD a few times when we first seperated.

    You only have to tell them if u are going over seas.. Immigration will notify them as soon as you leave the country.. They will then ring you and investigate.. So if ur going overseas tell them

    If it's just a local holiday You don't have to say anything.. Just like you wouldn't have to say anything if you were going away with friends or family etc
