Moving/Retiring to CH

Hello Everyone,

I'm Christine, a US citizen, married for 20 years to my husband who has dual US/Swiss citizenship. We are making the exciting/nerve-wracking decision to relocate to CH in the coming year. The US is not a place I recognize much anymore, honestly, but that is just part of it. We also have an autistic son who is about to turn 18 and Switzerland is, from what we can tell, a much more inclusive environment (My sister in law has Downs Syndrome). We want him to have a rich and full life and where we live in the US things are rather bleak in that regard. It is depressing, really. All of our relatives live in Switzerland. We have a flat where we can stay for cheap temporarily (and maybe longer), and my youngest son is considering possible careers/university (he's 15) and we would like him to feel able to attend school in Switzerland. All that being said, My husband is 62 so we are at an age where the transition has a lot of ramifications. He works in an international field and we are fairly sure he could find work and when he retires in 5 years we will have both US and Swiss pensions to draw on. I've been reading through the archived messages on this forum and am so thankful for all the information available!! Specifically I'd love to connect with anyone on this forum who has relocated to Switzerland from the US with a disabled dependent -- this is our biggest motivator and concern. We have been spending 3 months/year in Switzerland for the past 5 years so I feel like I have a healthy respect for the challenges but we also love it and I'm excited to make this change.
