Craig and Alison have a child, Andrew - date of birth 1 November 2001. Alison is the eligible person. They decide to leave Australia permanently and emigrate to Canada on 14 April 2002. Alison would write 165 at P on her claim as this is the number of days from Andrew's date of birth until the day she left Australia permanently.
