Hace algun tiempo me aparecio una frase similar en una traduccion y despues de mover cielo y tierra, un amigo abogado me facilito el termino y la explicacion: No basta con decir 'yo vivo o resido en X lugar' hay que proveer datos que permitan corroborar tal afirmacion, como por ej., servicio de electricidad a nombre de la persona, etc.
