    *Pursuant to Board Policy 4100 – “Domicile” denotes a permanent, established home, as distinguished from a temporary place of residence.  A person may have more than one residence but only one legal domicile.  To establish a new domicile, a person must abandon the prior domicile and move into a new residence with the intent to make the new residence his or her new home.  Merely owning or renting property does not establish a legal domicile.
