Dear Mindful Mimi,

I'll be starting a year-long contract at the European Court of Justice from the 1st July. I'd like to know which areas I should be looking in for a 1-bedroom apartment. I also want to avoid agency fees if possible - do you have any advice?

Thanks!

Dear Mindful Mimi,

I want to find friends who aren’t mothers and who like to travel and laugh. I would also like to find some locals who will speak French with me. I sometimes feel everyone here speaks to me because they want to practise their English with me instead of having a proper conversation with me. Please advise me!

My fiance lives in Croatia now and is being offered a position in Luxembourg.
It is a high rate of income so financially we have no problems. I am a United States citizen, still currently residing in the US and we are interested in getting married in Luxembourg after she relocates. We both want to live there indefinitely, but are uncertain about the legality of our situation. I am an ex-felon in the US and we are wondering how this may or may not affect our circumstances.

I am a 40 year old U.S. citizen thinking of moving to Luxembourg. I am an attorney who telecommutes and could perform my job anywhere in the world. What would be necessary to begin plans to obtain a residence permit and then maybe citizenship as I can keep my American Passport now with your law change? Thanks
