What kind of life will we be able to have. I will also get a car and housing allowance and medical will be covered by the company. I have absolutely no idea how much taxes are so not sure how to get to a take home salary.
This is a huge move for us and we want to know if we could maintain the quality of life we have here. We are considering lawrenceville /princeton but is still trying to find where is best place to live as well

Any advice will be appreciated!!!
110K is a fine salary, and I suggest West Windsor or Plainsboro for the schools and other reasons.

Hi there,
We are SA-Americans who have been living in Belgium for 5 years and are moving to NJ this summer. We will be in the Morris County area as my hubby is working in northern NJ. Would love to stay in touch and try and get together once we're all settled. Good luck with the move and relocation etc. We're from Durban originally and still visit every year, maybe less now that we are coming back stateside. Have 7 yr old twin boy/girl.
Cheers for now,
