5 Facts For Families Emigrating To Australia Who Want To Bring Their Pet With Them

Whenever the term “family” is used in relation to visas to live in Australia, most assumptions are that it refers to partners, spouses, parents, or children, and for the most part that is the case. However, ask pet owners if their dog or cat is regarded as a member of the family and you will hear a resounding “Yes” in reply.

This raises the question as to whether families who are moving to Australia under a visa scheme can bring their pets with them, and the simple answer is “Yes, they can”. However, just as humans need to meet specific criteria and follow a process, so do their pet animals. Here are 5 facts from a migration agent about the process and how those making Australia their home, can also have their pets join them.

How to Clean Spilled Milk From Your Carpet

How to Clean Spilled Milk From Your Carpet

If you have ever had the misfortune to smell milk that has gone off you will know it is not something that you would voluntarily assault your nostrils with. A worst-case scenario than that is when milk has been spilled on to a carpet and dried in, meaning that some pretty serious cleaning from a professional grade cleaning company like Gleam Clean needs to take place.

Hopefully, you have never had that experience, however, knowing what to do if it should occur, will not only be welcomed by your carpet, but we dare say the sense of smell of everyone who enters your home will be thankful.

The way in which milk ends up on a carpet can differ, be it from someone drinking from a milk carton instead of glass and it dribbling down their chin, someone knocking over a glass of milk, or babies, who, let’s face it, while they are gorgeous, they are also messy little darlings and take great delight in turning their bottle upside down, with the result that their milk ends up on the carpet below, drip by drip.

Why Does My Landscape Garden Keep Flooding?

There can be few events in the world of landscaping that bring more gardeners closer to tears than them discovering that their garden has been flooded. This can occur on two timescales with one being a slow realisation that water is rising within your garden, and you are seemingly helpless to do anything to stop it. The other is where it occurs suddenly where your garden has gone from your own little paradise, to what seems like a watery hell, overnight.

The first question most gardeners ask at this point is ‘Why me?’, and all we can do to answer that is say do not take it personally. In other words, whatever powers are at play with regards to the flooding, it was not aimed directly at you. Instead, and on a more practical level, your questions should be, ‘What is the cause?’, followed by, ‘How do I rectify it?’

We first want to point out that although in many areas excessive rainfall can be a contributory factor, that is not going to apply to everyone, especially those who live in areas that have low rain fall. Also, downpours of rain tend to be sporadic, and so, if your garden is flooding when there is no rain, or the rainfall is what might be considered ‘normal’, then there is something else that is causing the issue.

The experts at Landscapers Perth told us that one of the most common reasons that a landscape garden might flood is that the drainage process below the surface is poor, and thus water levels underground is rising to the point of flooding on the surface. The causes of poor drainage can vary, and it may be a case of you doing some detective work to discover the primary cause.

What Happens If You Have Been Called Up For Jury Duty

What Happens If You Have Been Called Up For Jury Duty

One of the cornerstones of any democracy is its criminal justice system, and more importantly, the rights of anyone accused of a crime. They have the right to a fair trial, and to be represented by a criminal lawyer, to name but two of those rights.

The trial system also allows for those accused to be found guilty or not guilty by a jury of their peers. In other words, those sitting on a jury who make the decisions with regards to someone’s guilt are ordinary citizens.

For most people, serving on a jury is the only time they ever see the inside of a courtroom, unless of course, they have a career within the legal system, or, unfortunately, decide to commit a crime, are caught, and sent for trial. For those of you for which those two scenarios do not apply, let us take a more detailed look at jury service and who can serve on a jury.

You may be liable to serve on a jury if you are registered to vote. However, there are certain circumstances under which you may not be eligible. Anyone over the age of 75 does not need to serve, and there are several occupations that are also not liable to serve. These are mostly occupations within the legal system with examples being court offices, legal practitioners, and certain members of the police force.
