Just as we decided to buy a new car (VW Polo) Marco got news in his office that his department will be closed down. There will be some positions opening in the UK and Seattle office and he should let them know if interested. So, in short. You are fired and can look for a new job or you can move abroad.
We both spent some time in the US before for college and internships and welcomed this opportunity. We just merged our households, got 2 cute little bunnies, a new fridge and promised each other we would not move in the next 4 years, but yeah, you have to go with the flow.
With the new job would come a preview trip to Seattle (once he signed - so not really a 'pre-view'), temporary housing, a person helping with legal stuff, bank account, finding a home and car and so on and a H1B visa, just for him.
He would have to start his in October and we could travel to Seattle in August.
Optimistic, curious, human bee.
