Decision to move to France

Before initiating the process, I had to take multiple aspects in consideration :

  • Am I prepared to change my lifestyle ( financially and socially)
  • How do I see my life in the mid term and long term
  • What type of job can I find in France
  • How is my career going to be affected
  • Do I want to move all my belongings or part of it
  • What to do about various savings in the US (401K, Roth etc…)
  • Who can help me through the process
  • If married or engaged, would my wife be willing and able to move as well
  • How much money can I spend to execute this move

For my part, the decision was already taken; so, even though I took all these elements in consideration, I knew I would need to move to France.
