I have been thinking of moving to Cali in the next couple of years. Maybe summer of 2014. I have been looking into rentals, but with the cost of living out there it seems as if I would be better of buying. It would lower costs by about $1000. My rent now is $620/mo for a 3 bedroom house whereas there it would be about $2100 for a 2 bedroom apartment. My mom has a guaranteed income of $700. I am a front desk worker at a Hilton brand hotel. I work for a company that allows for transfers. How much does a front desk worker make in LA/Hollywood? We have a few hotels in the LA area where I could go and have about 3 years experience with Hilton, or 3 years hotel experience with another brand. Our company owns some hotels of different brands as well. I have been looking around Agoura or Santa Clarita. I don't want to live IN LA.....just driving distance. I don't receive child support even though it is court ordered. Right now I won't ask for it as we aren't even following the visitation order either. It will help when I decide to move. I have to either have his dad's permission (not likely) or the judges permission to move out of state. Would most likely end up homeschooling. My son would have to fly back for visitation ($200 round trip) so that would have to be added into our income. It is a direct flight so I wouldn't mind him flying alone.....I think I wouldn't mind.....I probably would!
