Help me establish California residency without a permanent home address.

I'm moving from the East Coast to Los Angeles in the next few weeks. It is intended to be a permanent move, but I will be staying at an Airbnb for the first couple of months while I apartment-hunt, etc. In studying the California DMV guidelines here I see that I will need to provide a residential address to print on the license (even if I use a PO Box for my mail.) Is there any way around this? [more inside]

Reassure me that I can get a CA driver's license

I have just moved to San Francisco after living overseas for 4 years. My old US license (Massachusetts) expired two weeks ago. I am required to get a CA license within 10 days, and I need a US license anyway for things like Scoot, which I'll be relying on for commuting. Please reassure me that I will be able to prove residency despite a "soft landing" housing situation meaning I don't have a lot of the traditional documentation. [more inside]

Living where you're not allowed to stay in Los Angeles?

For reference, I'm looking specifically for information about the city of Los Angeles, California. To be able to legally live in a building and call it home that building must be zoned as residential. There is a caveat to this and that is if you are considered to be a caretaker or custodian of that property. The problem is I can't seem to find where this situation is discussed in specifics in the civil code. [more inside]

Why did my payroll tax increase when I moved abroad?

Can I pick which state I live in for income tax purposes?

I do not want to screw the IRS, as that is scary. At the same time I travel a lot. Nominally I have an apartment in NYC that is "home," and I pay high city tax and state tax rates. I have been AirBnB'ing the apartment and basically living with my girlfriend when I'm home. For business I travel a lot, to the point where I have begun renting cheap bachelor pads to not be living in a hotel all the time. Can I claim residency in those states? [more inside]

Where can I get data on avg step1 scores for medical residency programs?

I'm trying to find a list of US medical residency programs and the average step 1 scores of the applicants that are accepted into each program. Google has not been helpful. I've found match rates, quotas, test scores by specialty, and all sorts of other data. But nothing about test scores by residency program. Does anyone know if this data exists and where I can find it? Thanks in advance.

Changing residency. What order do I do these things in?

Changing my residency from NJ to CT. Simultaneously purchasing a used car to replace a NJ registered, just totaled car (for which I still have plates). And simultaneously switching from old NJ health coverage, to new CT Obamacare health coverage. So, have to change license, registration, mailing address, health care, and anything else you all might suggest. Is there any particular order I need to do these things in?

How to determine immigration status of ex-wife after immigration/marriage fraud?

I, a U.S. citizen, married a foreign national some time ago and helped her obtain conditional permanent resident status as a result of the marriage. I subsequently discovered that she had no intent of engaging in a legitimate marital relationship with me and, instead, had married me for the sole purpose of becoming a permanent resident of the United States. Upon this discovery, I filed for an annulment but was instead granted a divorce (details inside). My immigrant ex-wife will soon need to apply (via the I-751 process) to convert her "conditional" permanent resident status to "true" permanent resident status if she wishes to remain in the United States legally (which she does). I do not know whether she will be granted this status, but I would like to find out whether or not she does attain it. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I might find this out? [more inside]

Will I have any problems getting in-state tuition in California?

My boyfriend and I are moving to San Francisco for his work. I'm in the middle of a second bachelor's degree in biochemistry/fulfilling premedical requirements.

Should I be a NY, NJ, or CT resident?

I'm trying to figure out where I should establish residency. I'm currently a NJ resident because I lived in a co-op apartment that I own there for about 5 years; I have been renting it out for about 2 years now. My current official mailing address is still in NJ (at a UPS store, so it just looks like a regular address). For the past year-ish, I've lived in CT in a house my father owns. Going forward, I will be living half of the time with my fiancee in Brooklyn and the other half here in CT. So, where is the best place for me to establish residency? [more inside]

Help opening a student bank account in the UK

I'll be a student in the UK for at least one year. While there are many threads dedicated to unanimously deciding the process is a long, painstakingly near-impossible one, I've yet to see someone recommend a specific type of account and/or bank. (Especially since newer regulations have been implemented). If anyone knows of a FREE way of opening a UK bank account without an established residency, please share details. Thanks.

Just visiting for tax purposes?

My friend's mother has lived in Florida for over 20 years in a home that she owns outright. Three years ago her mother moved to a different state so she could live in an independent-living facility near her daughter. She kept her house in Florida, she paid all applicable Florida property and income taxes, and she voted absentee in Florida. Her income comes from Social Security, a pension and investments. My question is, should her mother be paying taxes in the state that she is living in now? Also, when she dies, should her estate be managed as though she had lived the last years of her life in Florida?
