I'm an account manager from the DC area with a 14yr old daughter who's about to enter her first year of High School. I'm currently in a relationship that I'm not happy in. I have made up mind to move to Georgia. I hear they have great a great school system. I currently make 40,000 in my career field. I want to relocate, but i have the slightest idea on where to get started. I mean I don't know where to look for affordable housing,where to begin looking for a job, and I sure don't know how to transfer anything from DC to Georgia. I don't even know what area will be better for a single mother with a 14 yr old girl. Can someone please help the lost? Thank you

Step 1: Find a job. What sort of setting/venue do you work?

Do you want something in the Atlanta area or elsewhere in the state?

Is this a business relationship that you don't like or a personal one? It may cost you less to live in Georgia, but it's probably not going to pay you as well either. I wouldn't take my daughter out away from her friends at her age unless she would look forward to a change too. 14 is a tricky age to make new friends.

If it's a personal relationship that's bugging you, just grit your teeth and get out of it. Moving just for that reason in not in your own interests. If you really want to move to Georgia, well, OK, but find a job first and hope that your daughter does just fine with the move.
