Do you speak English or are you using a translation program?

Both! I`m afraid of seriuos mistakes which could affect to the meaning so first of all i print the text and then i correct it with translation program. Also i often meet here some unknown words (like a phrasal verbs) that need to be translated)

It's okay. You know far better English than 99% of Americans would know Czech. :-)

We can understand you, don't worry about it. Lots of accents here. You're doing fine. My grandparents were from Eastern Europe just a couple of generations ago.

I think you chose the cities you have mentioned because they get a lot of publicity both in the US and overseas so those are the ones about which you have heard. But what you might not know is that they are the most popular for people who wish to relocate within the US as well so that's what makes them the most expensive. I just relocated from Portland to Cleveland because I no longer afford to live there with the cost of living having gone up so high.

But there are plenty of other places in which you can live that don't get written about that are just as good as the ones you may have read about. You might have to put up with weather you don't like at first but once you are here you can see for yourself by traveling around on vacation many other cities that may suit you better and relocate again. Many people do that.

I have never been to Atlanta but if you can get a job there, I have heard it's nice. Maybe others can give you ideas about it. Best of luck to you.

Just thought it might be in your best interest to learn English if you want to do more than "moving, cleaning, painting, UBERing".Obviously you are making many mistakes or i wouldnt have brought up the topic.

Have you actually researched visas? It appears you are not taking that part of your plans seriously, as a B-1 is only a tourist visa, NO EMPLOYMENT ALLOWED. If you ever work on one you will be subject to deportation and a ban on returning to the US. It only is good for 180 days.

Your sister or brother can sponsor you---only if they are full citizens (not LPR's) and it takes about 14 years!

And you understand that you CANNOT get an H-1b visa while in the US. That visa can only be obtained while you are in your home country. And they are capped, and are already gone for 2017, so you are looking at 2018 maybe.

I understand. My family immigration from Poland and Russia. Ya govoryu porusski ochen plocho haha

If your employer is in Atlanta, you will love it there. It is a big city with a strong economy. It is diverse, so you won't have much trouble being an immigrant there. The summers can get hot. There are days over 100F and many over 90F. But if you are coming from the Czech Republic, you probably are not used to how the United States handles summer. Every building in Atlanta will have very good air conditioning. In cities that get hot in summers, there are almost no apartments, homes, restaurants, stores, etc. that do not have good air conditioning. So while it will be hot outside, inside your home will be fine. I lived in Madrid and Bologna for one year and I remember how hot it will be INSIDE a home or restaurant in summer. That does not happen in the US. It seems like it is more common in Europe with the buildings being much older and the owners don't install good air conditioning systems (or can't because of how the building was made). A lot of homes and apartment complexes have pools there also.

In winter, Atlanta will only have a few days of now. NOTHING like the Czech Republic or Eastern Europe. It can snow for days and be below freezing for a very long period of time in Eastern Europe. This will not happen in Atlanta. Temperatures at night may go below freezing for a few days in a row, but high temperatures that don't get above freezing are not common there. The amount of snow Atlanta gets is basically nothing compared to where you come from. And when it does snow, the entire city stops functioning, so you won't have to worry about going to work in the snow.

I think if your employer offers you a job in Atlanta, you should definitely take it! It might not be the perfect city for you, but you will definitely like it. Housing is cheap compared to the other cities you listed (Portland, San Diego, Austin, etc.). It doesn't get as hot as Austin or as cold as Portland.

If your sister and your wife's brother already live in the US, they may be able to sponsor your visa and bring you here legally. Where are they located?
