Re: how to get instate tuition for live aboard teenagers

This is more stringent than just establishing "residency" for voting and tax purposes. Which means I think using mail forwarding addresses like St. Brendans Isle won't cut it for getting instate tuition unfortunately.

You need to get a drivers license, register to vote, file taxes using mailing address in the state you want to set up residence. May also need a marina contract in place of "utility bills, etc" showing you have a physical residence (the marina). IIRC this is what I need to prove to FL to get drivers license.
You also can file a Declaration of Domicile form although my research showed this wasn't necessary for FL.
