A: If your friends permits you to occupy his home that he owns and nit pay rent, you may do so. If he is a tenant and an owner of the home, there may be problems. If you do occupy your friend's home, it would be wise to get an agreement in writing.

The school issue is separate and distinct from the previous part of your question. In order for your son to attend school, you will need to provide proof to the school district of his residency. Since you will be intending to stay for at least six months, you will need to change your driving license address. Most likely you will need to school administration a written lease, utility bills with your name at the new address, and such othe proofs as may be required by the school district.
