When considering the relocation of your home, your family, and your entire life, you’ll want to do ample research beforehand. This research includes finding a new place to live, possibly a new job, etc. These are not the only things you need to research/plan. If you are moving to a different state, you’ll need to update yourself with the laws that will now pertain to you.
When you move to a different state, there is often a grace period that you have before you need to become a resident of that state. In some states, it’s 90 days. In others, it’s only 30. Make sure to look this up before you make the move. That way, you can go ahead and start gathering documents to prove your residency early. These documents can include lease agreements or copies of utility bills.
This research goes hand-in-hand with the residency requirements. That’s because your driver’s license says a lot. It can identify your new address—proving residency—as well as report that you’re registered to drive in that new state. During the time in which you acquire your license, you’ll also want to get new license plates for your car.
Although driving, licensing, and residency are important pieces of your move, they’re not the only things you need to consider. You need to also do extensive research on what kind of taxes you’ll pay in that new state, what changing your insurance policy will entail, the average cost of living, and so much more.
