I'm a UK citizen working as a freelance translator, and I'm thinking of settling in Germany next year.
Firstly I need to find out roughly how much disposable capital I'll have to live on. I can expect to earn €20-25K at the most, so my question is, how much will go on tax and health insurance, and how much will be left?
My idea is to opt for a medium-sized town rather than one of the big cities. I don't need to live in a big house, a 2-bed flat would be fine.
I also have a 5-year-old to take care of, and plan to bring his mother (a non-EU citizen) to join us as soon as a visa can be arranged.
If anyone can offer any initial advice to start the ball rolling, I'd be very grateful.
