Sounds like a load of crap to me! If your father is an SC living here then there is no way he wouldn't know you would be required to do NS as a PR.

Honestly I call BS on this post.

His parents were PRs. It is my example of my boss' son that has the SC Father and European PR mother. He's probably spot on as I know most PRs paid little attention to the fine print of PR'ship and the obligations that would be incurred should one sign on the dotted line.

I mentioned before as well, I personally know a fellow volunteer, who's very passionate about following his chosen vocation but can't, because his parents kept him on Student pass / long term while parents became citizen, female sibling became PR.

He graduation locally, and is on S pass but due to restrictions on his vocation, can't go higher up. Even though he's gotten more than a few award, awards which would have seen anybody else be made A PR at the least. ICA till date don't say why they are rejecting his PR.
