Some of this month’s questions include:

Do you have advice for dual US/French citizens for dealing with French retirement funds under the US IRA system?

If one is exchanging a US drivers license for a French one (from a US state has an exchange is allowed), at what point in time does the one year timeline start? 

What kind of visas might we be eligible for if I run an online business and my partner works remotely for his company as a web developer?

What documents do I need to file my French tax return?

What is the best site or sites to use when setting up healthcare coverage when applying for a long-term visa (retirement)?

When visiting France for 30-90 days to explore living locations for long-term, how do I handle my USA driver’s license so that I can rent a car in France?

How important is the French client for a profession liberale visa if I will already be earning beyond the required minimum from UK based clients as a remote virtual assistant?

For the documents I submit for “travailler temporaire” at my visa appointment with VFS, do any need to be translated in French, and if so, do any need to be legalized?

Do you need to have a background check done and submitted for your visa application at VFS office?

We need to change our VLS-TS visa to a work-type visa but we have not yet renewed it once. Do we have to wait until after this visa’s expiration date to even begin the new visa application? Or do we simply need to schedule the VFS Global appointment for a date after our current VLS expires?

How much money do you need to move to France initially, including rent, utilities, Gov Costs, traveling…?
