So here's my dilemna. Help or suggestions appreciated.
For the last 2.5 years, I have lived and worked in South Carolina, a compact state. I am about to take a 6 week break from work, get married, go on my honeymoon, and then start travel nursing after all that. I am putting my things in storage in Ohio, where both our parents live. Ohio is not a compact state. So, my temporary address will be in Ohio for those 6 weeks, but I am technically a permanent resident of South Carolina.
So I claim primary residency in South Carolina, and I can travel to other compact states without problem. But when I want to change my name, post wedding, I will have no permanent South Carolina address. So how will I change my driver's license? If I get an Ohio driver's license with my new name, will Ohio then become my primary state of residence and I will not be able to travel on to other compact states?
I am a renter in South Carolina. I plan on coming back when I finish, but I am just keeping my stuff in Ohio. I am so confused as to what I should do!!
My first assignment will hopefully be in Colorado (a compact state), should I wait until I work there and then change my name, get a driver's license in a compact state, etc? Anyone who has been in this stressful, sticky situation?
