Hi All,
I am a U.S. citizen who just bought a house with my husband (U.S. citizen) in France. We plan to relocate there in 2 months. My employer is allowing me to work completely remotely and is based in Chicago. They do not have an office in France. Our income will come solely from my job and it is full-time.
Here are my questions:
1. Do I need a visa of any kind?
2. What do I need to tell my employer to do, so that they are not doing anything illegal? I saw mention of declaring me as temporarily assigned to work abroad and that there is no physical presence of an office. Does anyone have more information on the specifics of this or an attorney I could talk to?
3. I also saw mention of becoming an independent contract. If I propose becoming an independent contractor to them, what are the benefits to them and to me?

My job is kindly supporting me in this venture, and it's a small non-profit organization so I want to be sure to not put them in a compromising position, but also don't want to do something that would cost me extra.
Please help and thank you in advance!
