My ex and I returned to Australia 6 months ago from the UK due to immigration 'complications' arising as a result of our separation. Aussie citizens, eight-year marriage, 3 children in primary school. Children spend 50:50 time with each parent. In the UK, we were both employed full time as professionals, and both have the same Aussie education and experience. I was able to find work immediately upon returning to Australia, however, she is still looking. Obviously this has some financial implications for me with child support... Does the Agency have any sort of guidelines to measure what constitutes a reasonable timeframe/effort looking for work? She has a solid backlog of cash in the bank post-separation so she isn't desperate to work (so to speak), and wouldn't be eligible for Centrelink etc.
