      Hi Janine,
      I guess the same approach would apply to emigrating anywhere else - can you find work in the area you want to move to? I reckon if you can arrange a job to go to the rest will fall into place. Are you aware that you may not be eligible for free treatment under the NHS now though and that you will probably have to pay for medical treatment as an returning ex-pat? This is unless you've continued paying taxes in the UK while living in Spain?

      Hi Janine

      I agree with Trav, the best thing would be to try and secure a job somewhere first then look at finding a place to stay and a school for you daughter that is close to where you will work.
      Hope it all works out for you, good luck.

      Yes it could be difficult Janine with times the way they are but NOT impossible so start looking into it, you never know what could come up.
      If you can secure a job even if its not exactly what you want long term then at least its a good start.
      Once again, good luck.
