I'm from Perth, Australia and I spoke a few years ago about moving to the US. It wasn't the best time though but now I'm finically in a lot better position so making the move would be easier.

I've spoken to my Mum about it again and she would really like to make the move as well since it really is just her and I these days.

I'm a journalist and I would continue to be employed by my Australian company so I wouldn't need to work over there. My Mum on the other hand would need to find a job.

What I'm trying to find out at the moment though is how can I legally become a resident.

It seems the only way is via the Green Card Lottery if you don't have any family.

I haven't decided where about I would want to live, there's so many options but it would be somewhere that was cooler then Perth in the summer months.

I've had a few friends move OS in the last few years but they've head to countries in Asia which really don't interest me.

I appreciate any help.

I know a few people from Australia (one from Perth, or near it) that like it in Portland, Oregon. It gets a lot of rain, but if you like rain, it might be a good fit.
