    Hi Southside852 + January,

    Thanks for the info.

    We are relatively new to HK, so do not know that many people. Do you remember the name of the agency that you used?

    I spoke to a agency today and was told that I should look at the terminate contracts because sometimes the helpers with finish contracts can be very picky and sometimes even if you choose them and start a contract sometimes they would pick someone else. But, with the terminate K, they have to leave HK to wait for their visas, so at least that's a bit safer.

    Its all so overwhelming. I would definitely love if I can find someone that's recommended. That would def be great

    Thanks again for your help.
    Piper

    if the helper ha sbeen terminated because of a relocation or financial problem or death of the person she was emplyed to look after,then she is allowed to stay in Hk to process her papers
    This info was given to me by immigration dept

    With so many people leaving, I don't think helpers can be picky. I would interview finished contract helpers, as well as terminated.

    Good luck!
