A move to another state can be quite a logistical and organizational challenge. The good news is: You have many options to prepare yourself as well as your belongings. Informing yourself about where you are heading is another important part of preparation! In last week’s blog post we have already written about a potentially different climate when moving out of Florida and to another state. This time we are taking a look at a few cultural and legal aspects.
Get to know your destination when you move to another state
In such a diverse country as the US, a relocation to a different state can mean various cultural changes as well. This can depend on various factors and influences, such as:

Learning about such potential differences will not only help you to make yourself at home quicker, it can also have a positive impact on your social and professional life, for example when you learn an additional language that is common in your new “home” state.

Therefore it is very important to inform yourself about the state laws of your destination! We cannot give any legal advice here, but in the link list below you can find various examples for differing laws depending on where you live (for information and entertainment purposes only!).
